Follow along as I see how I like Tailwind Nutrition. It was developed by ultra endurance racer Jeff Vierling as an all-in-one formula to combine hydration, caloric and electrolyte replacement during ultra race events. He was frustrated with the available drinks, gels, and bars that caused stomach issues to the point of hurling in a trash can at the end of his first Leadville 100. After testing several combinations he came up with the current formula with the intention of using it as his secret weapon, only other athletes saw his results and wanted in on the action.

After 400 miles of running and hiking, the Ultimate Direction Access 600 has become an extension of me. I don’t leave the house without it – I have run every distance from a two mile training run, a half marathon, even a 50k, and the Access 600 has performed well. There is plenty of room for snacks, a phone and usually enough hydration to get me to the next aid station. Read on for my final thoughts on this handy running belt.

Short pause during a swamp run at night
I used the RunLites Sling II on two significant night trail runs since my last update, and I can say that they performed well. Though I was skeptical, I found that they were good for running on non-technical trails and had a burn time of around 7 hours on low. Read on for my complete final review.
