Race Report: 2013 Leona Divide 50 Miler

I did it. First 50 miler in the books!

Hello, my name is Ethan Newberry and I am an Ultra Runner. Hot DAMN, I’ve been waiting to say those words for awhile now! After running (we’ll just call it “moving”) this race, I feel comfortable saying them and damn it feels good to get it out there. The Leona Divide 50 Miler was my very first 50 miler race, my first run longer than 32 miles, and it gave me a taste of what […]

Review: Salomon EXO II Wings TW shorts

Salomon EXO II Wings TW Shorts

Wow, I never thought I’d say this, but I may want to marry a pair of shorts. The two of us had a scrumptious, albeit brief (haha, get it!?), love affair over the last 2 months and I think their the one. I’m in love. With a pair of shorts. Now I can’t just say this without telling you why, now can I? Here’s my ye’ olde review of the Salomon EXO II Wings TW shorts. SALOMON […]

Review: Salomon Trail Runner II 1/2 Zip Tech Tee & XA Pro Trail Socks

Salomon Review

Without giving too much of this review away in the first sentence, Salomon freakin’ NAILS trail running apparel. Ok, now that I’ve blown my wad and spoiled everything, I’ll get more specific. Being known for their affection for hardcore trail runners and outfitting some of the best ultramarathoners in the world, Salomon has a reputation that precedes it. Because of this, I’ve wanted to get into some Salomon gear so I could try it out and see if […]

Review: The La Sportiva Crosslite 2.0

Screen shot 2011-06-24 at 8.18.45 PM

Here is the GingerRunner.com review of the La Sportiva Crosslite 2.0. After wearing them for a considerable number of trail runs on all sorts of surfaces, I stand by these shoes as a great addition to the trail runner line-up. They are light, sturdy, rugged as hell, and simple. While there are a few problems (laces, stiffness, height) they are outweighed by the shoe’s ability to adapt to different trail running conditions. From the hard […]

Review: Hydrapak “Selva” Hydration Backpack

Hydrapak Selva

PRICE: $74.99 Long gone are the days of having to lug water bottles around with you on trails or stashing fuel in bushes on long training runs. There’s been an onslaught of decent hydration packs on the market for the last few years, and even more recently some packs built with the ultra runner/trail runner in mind. The Hydrapak Selva is a decent addition to the fray – despite being primarily an off-road cyclist product […]

The Ginger Is Wet For Trail Running!

groundbreakersapr200

Runner’s World magazine has awarded the Saucony ProGrid Peregrine – you might call it the Kinvara of the trails – the “Editor’s Choice” award. This shoe went from a moderate curiosity to an outright need for me after doing some more research on the shoe. Right now, I’m doing a lot of trail running (I have a 10k race this Sunday). I hit the trail at least twice a week as a part of my […]

Review: The Saucony ProGrid Kinvara

Screen shot 2011-02-25 at 11.50.46 AM

Here is the GingerRunner.com review of the Saucony ProGrid Kinvara. After running in the shoe for awhile, I do have to say that I like it and think it’s a fantastic reduced running shoe. The Kinvara does a lot of things well, but not everything right. As a hugely affordable entry into the reduced running shoe market, I would highly recommend the Kinvara. While I’d still choose my Newtons over the Kinvara, it represents a […]
