The TransAmerica Road Trip

I used to joke that my Hyundai Elantra would make it only as far as Chicago before biting the dust. That was until one day when I was less than a mile from work it did just that. So needless to say, it was time for an upgrade. I replace running shoes when they’ve covered about 500 miles.. perhaps the Elantra’s limit was 178,000. Read more »

Gorge Waterfalls 100k

Through a stroke of wild luck at the Rainshadow Running traveling trail running film festival late last year, my good friend (and frequent fun-runner) Marisa won a free entry into any trail race in 2017 put on by this organization! All the Rainshadow Running events are based in the Pacific Northwest and are known for having some of the most beautiful locations and challenging courses while being incredibly professionally run.

2017 Hydration Packs

As we continue to dive deeper into the trail scene, it has become evident that runners are liking a variety of different styles of hydration packs. Like anything, everyone has their preferences. While out on long training runs or for those in the ultra scene, runners tend to want to carry more gear, have their hands free or have quicker access to their supplies. Read more »

Moab Red Hot 55k

There we stand; runners staring a long morning in the dusty, rocky, mountainous desert wilderness in the face. The damp soil beneath us already stained the edges of my previously spotless black and white Adidas Bostons. A slight drizzle of the morning gave a chill to the mild spring-like air. Overcast skies threatened our gorgeous views. There was a storm brewing. Read more »

Calm Before the Desert Stampede

The day before— It took about 7 hours worth of driving through gorgeous open land before we finally got into the small city of Moab. The town sits in what Mike described as “a bowl of mountains”. Every direction is a near-sheer rock face surrounding town. As the sun went down, colors exploded off the city walls and shot straight into my heart. Read more »

Travel to the Southwest.

A few months ago I convinced another one of my crazy buddies, Mike, to join me on a journey to Moab, Utah for a trail race. Since moving to Santa Fe a few years ago, he always seems to be up for an adventure and agreed to make a weekend out of it. While it would be excellent to have a buddy along, that unfortunately meant that the most efficient route of travel would have to go through 4 different states along the way to this event.

Hoka One One Arahi

Over the past few years Hoka One One has broadened their spectrum of products rather substantially. Following the original generations of largely oversized road and trail shoes, we started to see shoes designed a bit more sleek and lightweight. Shoes like the Clifton and Clayton headlined their shift to finding a faster shoe. From another perspective, the Vanquish is now their glamour shoe in the premium cushion level in this max cushion brand. Read more »
