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.
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.
I have used the RunLites Sling II over the past couple months while walking and running on the Mississippi River Levy in New Orleans and while night hiking on the trails of Buccaneer State Park on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. The lights have provided ample light for walking at night, are comfortable to wear and seem to have a pretty decent run time. Read on for my full update.
I have been running marathons and ultra-marathons since 1998 and I have refined my nutrition so that I understand what works for me. This is a blessing and a curse because there are so many new products that launch each year to help runners achieve their best. 33Shake is one such company. They make Chia Energy Gels and Pre/Post workout shakes. I will be reviewing both of their products. Read on for my initial thoughts.
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.
