Review: Newton Energy NR

StillTemplate

I am all sorts of stoked on this shoe. The Newton Energy NR is a fantastic shoe and I might go as far as to say it’s one of Newton’s best shoes yet. There are a number of reasons for this. The 5 lug system, the stable forefoot platform, the soft EVA cushioning, the midfoot rubber plate, the transition, the comfy upper, and the overall long-distance comfort of this shoe make it awesome. If you […]

Review: Opedix CoreTec Shorts & Cobb Rapido Tri Shorts

StillTemplate

I recently got the chance to review two totally different style of shorts – one for recovery, one for triathlons. Seeing as it’s now towards the end of summer, I thought I’d push them together into one blog post in order to consolidate the need for the search bar for those of you looking for late summer purchases. Check out the videos below and let me know if you have used either pair of gear! […]

Review: Ultimate Direction AK Race Vest

Ultimate Direction AK Race Vest

The Ultimate Direction Anton Krupicka Race Vest is one of my top choices for minimal hydration solutions. When I heard UD was coming out with a signature series of packs and had worked closely with the likes of Anton Krupicka & Scott Jurek, I knew I’d have to try them out and put them through the Ginger Runner gauntlet. After seeing a number of runners in various races sport the pack, I visited my friends […]

Race Recap: The Squamish 50 Mile Ultra Marathon (Video)

The Squamish 50

As we passed her, body slumped over, hands on knees, looking absolutely destitute, I put a hand on her shoulder and asked, “Are you ok? Do you need anything?” with a slight hint of concern. Her face turned to mine and her eyes revealed just how far down her own rabbit hole she had fallen. A quiet, polite voice slowly returned with, “Uhh, I’m ok. Thanks though.” I held her space-gaze a moment longer in […]

Review: Saucony Kinvara 4

saucony kinvara 4 review

Well, it was a matter of time before I slipped my feet into the new Kinvara 4 from Saucony. After my love affair with the Kinvara 3 and the subsequent review (Watch the review HERE), I was hoping for 2 things: that I’d love the 4 more and that the shoe would be improved upon. Well, as it turns out, I love the shoe equally (not a bad thing) and the shoe has some improvements, […]

Review: yurbuds Inspire Pro & Signature Series

Screen Shot 2013-08-29 at 2.48.49 PM

I’ve been rocking yurbuds headphones for years now and can’t believe it’s taken me this long to drop a review for them. Perhaps it’s the fact I have just considered them a consistent piece of my running arsenal so I don’t really have to think twice about them. Luckily the awesome folks at yurbuds sent me a few pairs to compare so I was able to review some of their newer products as well as […]

Review: Trail Box Monthly Delivery Service

Trail Box Review

The fine folks over at http://trail-box.com sent me a couple of their monthly packages to check out. They are a service very similar to Stridebox which I reviewed earlier. You pay a small monthly fee and they send you a package full of surprise products geared towards trail running. Out of the two packages I received, I came to the conclusion that for $10/month (sometimes even cheaper) you get a decent amount of good stuff and it’s […]

Review: Patagonia Strider Pro Shorts

Screen Shot 2013-08-07 at 6.09.47 PM

This review is simple: These are the best damn shorts I’ve run in yet. They are amazing for races and training. TONS of storage (one back zipper pocket and two HUGE side pockets), they’re lightweight, breathable, and sport a solid waist band. Really the only downsides are the price and the fabric can be a bit abrassive at times. If you get a chance to try these shorts out, I HIGHLY recommend it! I now […]

Race Report: 2013 San Francisco Marathon (Video)

I RAN OVER A BRIDGE!

For the last 3 years, I’ve had the pleasure of running 26.2 miles through the streets of one of my favorite U.S. cities, San Francisco. 2013 is the first year that both my girlfriend, Mile Long Legs, and I ran the full marathon together so I was eager to share the experience with her. In years past, the course has always proved a significant challenge in that it’s hilly, windy, and crowded. This year, I […]
