Review: Brooks PURE Connect 3

Brooks Pure Connect 3 Review

Ladies and gentlemen, I finally get to review the new Brooks PureConnect 3! (RunningShoes.com) I reviewed the original Brooks PureConnect and while I liked it for the most part, I had some issues with it after awhile. A lot of that original shoe carried on into round two, where not much was changed with the PureConnect 2. However, Brooks has incorporated a number of new changes in their third iteration and I have to say […]

Review: Altra Lone Peak 1.5 & Altra Torin

Click here for the Altra Torin review!

So after a few years of sending them emails, and dozens of you tweeting at them, Altra finally agreed to send me a couple of pairs of their shoes for review! I am stoked to have the opportunity to try these zero drop, wide toe boxed shoes of magic. Not only are they one of the few shoe manufacturers that work with zero drop technology, but they’re fantastic at educating and promoting proper running form […]

Review: ECCO Biom Evo Racer Lite

Screen Shot 2014-01-15 at 12.27.53 PM

So, Ecco recently contact me and asked if I’d like to review a pair of their BIOM Evo Racer Lite. Never one to turn down the opportunity to review a new pair of kicks, I obliged, not fully sure of what I would get. I am happy to report that I have enjoyed my time in the Evo Racers more than I expected I would. They are a fast, responsive 5mm drop shoe utilizing a […]

Review: Skora Core

Screen Shot 2013-11-11 at 4.14.11 PM

The fine folks over at Skora Running sent me a pair of their relatively new Core model. Having reviewed their Form model, I knew that I was going to get a quality pair of minimal footwear and was anxious to see how they compared. Well, I’m happy to say that the Core is a solid shoe with a number of improvements over the Form and an all-around fantastic quality shoe for those looking for a […]

Review: Saucony Viratta

StillTemplate

If you’ve followed me for awhile, you know how much I love the Saucony Kinvara 3. This shoe is Saucony’s response to a more minimal, zero-drop, cushioned version of the Kinvara. The question is whether it lives up to the hype. Well, all-in-all, the shoe is pretty dynamite, but not without it’s faults – and the faults are make or break for me. While it is an extremely light, zero-drop shoe with an amazingly comfortable […]

Review: Skora Form

Screen Shot 2012-12-18 at 2.44.27 AM

I love wearing the Skora Form all around in my daily life. While I’ve found the faults to interfere with the comfort of wearing them on regular long runs, I still find these shoes to be very comfortable for the day-to-day lifestyle as well as form/speed drills. I’m also not a big fan of the $185 price tag. However, they have a more affordable brother, the Base (which I have not tried). Have any of […]

Review: La Sportiva Vertical K

Screen Shot 2012-12-07 at 2.28.53 AM

I finally got the chance to review the light and fast, La Sportiva Vertical K. This shoe was made for racing. It’s cushioned while maintaining a low and fast profile. While it does have it’s short-comings, I overall like this shoe very much and have really racked the miles up on them. If you get a chance, try on a pair for yourself.

Race Report: The North Face Endurance Challenge 50k

The North Face ECS 50k Championships

This last weekend, caked in mud, sweat and tears, I completed my very first ultra marathon – something I NEVER thought I’d be able do if you asked me a few years ago. This wasn’t just any ultra, this was the insanity that was The North Face Endurance Challenge Championship 50k race in the Marin Headlands of San Francisco. By now, some of you may have heard the stories, the gossip, and the legends of […]

Race Report: The 2012 Seattle To Portland Bicycle Classic

stp-2012_med

I’m pretty sure that I am crazy. I decided to take on a one-day double century bike ride smack dab in the middle of my marathon training schedule. Why? Because I thought it would be a fun challenge. I guess that’s if you consider torturing your body and social life a “fun” challenge. THE HISTORY So the Seattle To Portland bike ride (STP as we call it) was my very first endurance challenge back when […]

Race Report: The 2012 Big Sur Marathon

big_sur_half_marathon

I may have whispered the word, “Wow”, to myself hundreds of times in a 4 hour time-span. It was pretty much the only way to sum up my 2012 Big Sur Marathon experience. I mean, when you have 26.2 miles of rugged cliffsides, breathtaking ocean-views, quad-slamming hills, and brutally canted California coastal highway between the start and finish line, you’re pretty much guaranteed of loving every second of the run. This marathon did not disappoint. […]
