High flow water filters are the latest trend in water filtration for outdoor enthusiasts. MSR is already a leader in the water filtration realm and they are adding to their line up with the new MSR Thu-Link Inline Water Filter. It is a filter that can be placed directly between the users hydration reservoir and the mouth piece for instant filtration on the go or it can used in camp as a gravity filter. I will be reviewing this new filter over the next couple of months. You can read my full initial report HERE.
I moved to northern Virginia this summer and have been impressed with the number of race opportunities in the region. I recently ran the Potomac River Running’s Holiday Half Marathon and 4 Mile race held in Annandale Virginia. It is a great race run on a section of the Gerry Connolly Cross County Trail in early December. Click HERE to read my full race report.
I have used and abused the PATH projects base liner and shorts for the past 5 months, and I am impressed. They have seen hot and humid days running on the Mississippi River Levee in New Orleans and goldilocks weather in Greece as I ran the Authentic Athens Marathon. Their system is comfortable, durable and functional whether hiking or running. Read my final thoughts HERE.
