Hoka Clifton Gray

Last Thursday I posted a giveaway contest for a pair of Hoka Clifton running shoes – the contest runs through August 29 and the minimal requirement for entry is simply to leave a comment identifying your current favorite running shoe (there are a few additional ways to enter). I’ve put about 13 miles on my […]

Yesterday I ran 17.25 miles, my longest run in over a year and it went quite well! I’m in the final stretch of training for the Vermont 50K in late September, and my goal is to get at least one 20 miler in before the race (maybe two if I can bear it, still don’t […]

The summer Outdoor Retailer Show was held last week, and with it came a lot of announcements of new products for runners and other outdoor sports enthusiasts. I posted a few previews (new shoes from Hoka, Timex One GPS watch), and have more coming this week (lots more new shoes – stay tuned!). I also […]

Last week was my second and final week of coaching at the summer running camps in Craftsbury, VT. I had a great time and got a ton of running in (hope to get a post up on that aspect of the camps this week), but I’m happy to be home. This summer, like most in […]

Craftsbury-Lake-Willoughby.jpg

I’m going to keep this one short and sweet. I spent the last week coaching at a Masters Running Camp up in Craftsbury, VT. The schedule was incredibly hectic, with little down time, so I was only able to get two posts up. I also wasn’t able to filter much through my RSS feeds to […]

As this roundup is posted, I’ll be heading up to Vermont for two weeks of coaching at the Craftsbury Running Camps. I may try and do a few posts that provide a bit of an overview of what goes on up there (if you’ve never been, I highly recommend it!). It’s basically runner heaven: good […]

This Week in Runblogging: July 7 to July 13 2014–Lots of Garmin!

Garmin-Vivofit.jpg

I’ve been playing with a lot of fitness electronic devices over the past few months, and used the blog last week to knock out a few reviews of products in this niche that I have really enjoyed using. The Garmin Vivofit is a great choice if you’re in the market for an activity tracker, with […]

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 […]

The big running news for me this week was that my beginner 5K group ran their end-of-program race yesterday. It’s incredibly rewarding as a coach to see how far they have progressed over the past 9 weeks, and even more rewarding to have been able to watch them cross the finish line of what I […]

Two Weeks in Runblogging: May 19-June 1 2014

The Memorial Day holiday here in the US typically marks the unofficial start of summer for me. During my years as a college professor it came right after the end of the Spring semester, and it marked the start of 3 months without any classes to teach and thus more time to spend with my […]
