Mizuno-Hayate-Wave-Plate

My post last week referencing an article in Lower Extremity Review titled the “The Rise and Fall of Minimalist Running” generated quite a bit of commentary. The article took a fairly well-balanced look at what we have learned as a result of the minimalist movement, and it makes for an interesting read. One of the […]

The Rise and Fall of Minimalist Running: Recommended Article in Lower Extremity Review

Vibram Komodo

Quick heads up – I was interviewed a few months ago for an article that was recently published in Lower Extremity Review. Titled “The Rise and Fall of Minimalist Running,” the article takes what I feel is a pretty balanced look at what we have learned over the past few years as a result of […]

adidas Adios Boost 2

This week I reviewed the adidas Adios Boost 2. Version 1 of the adios Boost was one of my favorite shoes from last year – it provided a smooth, responsive ride that was capable of handling a variety of distances and speeds. I’m a fan of the Boost midsole material as if provides a soft, […]

Newton BoCo Sol

I finally wrote up my review of the Hoka Clifton this week, and I have to say that the experience of running in the shoe was an interesting and thought provoking one. Even if the shoe wasn’t the best match for me, it’s one to look at if you want a lightweight shoe with max […]

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 […]
