Each year around this time I put up a post containing a collection of Black Friday and Cyber Monday sale links. Basically what I do is spend some time scouring the web for running-related holiday sales, and aggregate them all into a single post – kind of a one-stop shop for runners looking for discounted […]
The Saucony Kinvara has long been a top option for me among low-drop, lightweight training shoes. I’ve run marathons in the Kinvara, and have had positive experiences with most iterations of the shoe that have come out.
