Sunglasses are an essential part of my kit.  My eyes are very sensitive to light and even in overcast conditions I wear sunglasses, or I end up squinting which leads to headaches.  adidas has become a player in the performance eyewear market and I will be reviewing their Evil Eye Evo Pro glasses over the next few months.  Read on for my initial thoughts.

Injinji Ultra Compression Socks – first look

Injinji Ultra Compression

Injinji Ultra Compression Socks – Clark Shelf, Juneau Alaska

I have been dabbling with calve compression sleeves for the past few years while running marathons and ultramarathons.  I am not sure that I have empirical data, but since I started using the calve sleeves, I have had better muscle recovery and no calve cramping while racing.  The only challenge was that I needed to wear a compression sleeve and running socks.  Injinji has come out with a compression sock that I hope can do both.  I will be reviewing the Injinji Ultra Compression OTC socks over the next few months.  Read on for my initial thoughts.

Urban Armor Gear iPhone 6s Case review

Urban Armor Gear

Urban Armor Gear iPhone 6s Case

I am a klutz, I admit it.  I break things easily.  I recently upgraded to an iPhone 6s from an iPhone 4s and I needed a new case for my phone to try and protect it from my klutzy ways.  Urban Armor Gear or UAG makes a line of cases to protect all types of phones and tablets and I decided to give them a try.  I have been using their case for the last month while backpacking, running and everyday use and I am pleased and more importantly my iPhone still looks new. Read on for my full thoughts.

Moji Massagers

Moji Curve PRO and Foot PRO massagers

Moji Curve PRO and Foot PRO massagers

I put in a lot of miles and would even classify myself as an ultrarunner or maybe crazy runner who puts in around 50 miles a week running and hiking.  This type of mileage along with work and life stress leads to stiff muscles. Moji is a company who creates massage tools to help relieve sore muscles.  I will be using two of their tools over the next couple months – Moji Curve PRO and the Moji Foot PRO.  Read on for my initial thoughts on these massagers.

Ultimate Direction Access 600 Running Belt

Access 600

5k Finished!

I am always looking for new ways to carry gear and stay hydrated while running.  For most of my runs, a vest is overkill, but I still need something to carry my phone, a few snacks, and some water.  Ultimate Direction has a new line up of running belts called the Access 600 that I think will fill this need in my running gear quiver.  I will be reviewing this running belt over the next few months.  Read on for my initial thoughts.
