Garmin Forerunner 15 (FR15) Review: Activity Tracking and GPS in One Watch

2014-07-05-16.50.12.jpg

Last summer I wrote a very positive review of the Garmin Forerunner 10 GPS watch. The FR10 is Garmin’s entry level GPS watch, and I was more than a bit surprised by how much I liked it. It provided accurate tracking, stable pace readouts, a small form-factor, and an intuitive, simple menu system. The device […]

Busted: Never Steal Skechers From Your Mom

I spent the 4th of July holiday with my parents up in Maine. As a shoe reviewer, I tend to travel with a lot of shoes, and while packing to come home yesterday I loaded them all into the Thule box on top of our car. Apparently I swiped an extra pair…busted on Facebook!

Garmin Vivofit Activity Tracker Review: A Runner’s Perspective

IMG_40871.jpg

I was a long time user of a Fitbit Ultra activity tracker. I loved that little device, and used it daily for a few years. Unfortunately, the Fitbit had a bad habit of falling off my waistband and getting lost. Or I’d forget to take it off and it would go through the wash, or […]

This Week in Runblogging: June 30 to July 6 2014

Nike-Pegasus-31-side_thumb.jpg

This is going to be a short roundup due to the fact that last week included the 4th of July holiday here in the US. It’s traditionally a vacation week for many families, mine included, and is typically one of the slowest traffic weeks of the year for my blog (and I’m sure many others […]

How Becoming a Runner Changes You: Feedback From My Beginner 5k Group

5K Yes I Can

One of the cool things that my 5K Yes I Can! co-coach Erin Girzone (Erin is in the pink shoes in the photo at left) arranged for our group this year was a before-after interview with a reporter from a local paper. She wanted to document how people changed after completing the program. Keith Testa from […]

Nike Zoom Pegasus 31 Running Shoe Review

Nike-Pegasus-31-forefoot.jpg

For a long time I would not have considered trying a shoe like the Nike Pegasus. I generally like shoes that are lighter and lower profile, but over the past couple of years I’ve come to realize that a higher drop shoe will work fine for me if it has a relatively soft heel. I […]

This Week in Runblogging: June 23 to June 29 2014

Asics-Gel-Lyte33.jpg

This week I reviewed the Asics Gel Lyte33 v3, which is a pretty nice shoe if you like a soft feel and a roomy toebox, though my pair has kind of a lumpy forefoot (seems somewhat variably present based on those who have commented). I also wrote a couple of posts about workouts on the […]

Observations on Cadence Change With Running Speed on the Track

Running Cadence Speed Track

I did a 5x400m track workout on Wednesday (was supposed to be 6×400, but lightning and torrential rain put an early end to the workout!). As usual I was wearing my Garmin 620, and one of the cool features of the watch is that it computes your cadence for you without any additional gadgets or […]
