Final Update Epson ProSense 57 GPS Watch

Relaxing at camp

I have used the Epson watch another couple of months with an additional 250 plus miles of usage on the watch in addition to every day usage.  I used the watch while running two marathons – and the battery life last the whole race even though I was pushing 5 hours and 30 minutes at the Oklahoma City Marathon.  The durability continues to be excellent.  Overall, I like the watch – Click HERE for my final thoughts.

Uno Hydration Belt

Summer is almost here and living in the south it is almost impossible to run without bringing along some water.  FuelBelt has revamped their hydration belts with the new Helium line.  I will be reviewing the Uno Hydration Belt while running and hiking as we head into the hottest part of the year.  You can read my initial thoughts HERE.

First look at the Xero Shoes TerraFlex

A break in hike at the Woodlands Conservancy

Xero Shoes are designed after the Huarache type of sandal that was made popular in the book “Born to Run.”  As a runner and hiker, I am always interested in new products and platforms and after talking with the charismatic Steven Sashen decided that I would try a pair of the new TerraFlex trail shoes from Xero Shoes.  Click HERE to read my initial thoughts.

Overlooking the beach in Grand Isle Louisiana

Even though I have been slowed with an Achilles issue, I have been able to use the Cotopaxi Veloz for an additional 80 miles of running and hiking putting my total miles on the pack over 200.  The pack continues to show excellent durability except for the front chest strap connection point which has continued to fray, but has not failed.  The pack has continued to work well for all of my hiking and running adventures, and I have remained chafe free.  Click HERE for to read my final thoughts on the Cotopaxi Veloz Hydration Pack.
