The Trap Pond Half Marathon, Marathon and 50k in Laurel, Delaware is an old school trail race. No big sponsor arches, or even awards for the top finishers, max of 100 runners total, a cool medal and the chance to run laps around the namesake Trap Pond at the Trap Pond State Park. I am in the process of running 50 marathon in 50 states before I turn 50, and I had to be in DC for work, and this race was the weekend before I needed to be in the Nation’s Capital.

I have done my best to break the Columbia Performance Stretch Boxer Briefs over the past two months with over 125 miles of backpacking, running and general wear. They have been supremely comfortable, continue to look brand new, and for the most part are funk free for the first couple days of continuous use. Read on for my full update!
I have continued to use the Ultimate Direction Marathon vest while racing and training and put over 150 miles on the vest. It is a solid vest that provides all day comfort, easy access to nutrition and features durable fabrics that UD is known for. Read on for my final update.
I have used the Ultimate Direction Marathon in 2 half marathons, 1 marathon, and numerous training runs putting in over 110 miles while wearing the vest. Comfort has been great with no areas of chaffing or rubbing. Durability has been good with no busted buckles or worn straps and practicality is also good with easy access to bottles and food. I still notice that it rides a little high compared to other packs and this can be a minor annoyance and I do feel like heavier items in the pack cause it to bounce more than other packs I have used.

I have used the Thunderbolt Sportswear Marly T over the past month while hiking and camping in Southern Louisiana, and while running a marathon in Mississippi, and it has performed superbly. It is soft and comfortable to wear, does not show any durability issues and for the most part is stink free. Read on for my detailed update on the shirt’s performance.
The JLab Epic2 Earbuds have continued to perform well since my last update. Durability and comfort have been amazing and the sound produced by the earbuds is great. Playtime has met expectations with me getting between 11-13 hours of playback before needing to recharge. These earbuds have performed above expectations! Read on for my final thoughts.
