    Some thoughts and tips on finding that one perfect shoe for you By Nick Bradley I’m not afraid of admitting that I hoard running shoes.

  • Team Wicked Bonkproof’s Racing Shorts, November 10, 2014
    Just 5 races? That's what I call a light weekend for the team. I think of it as a reload before another round of "A" marathons in the next few weeks. Though the races were few, one single member of the team cut enough time from their marathon PR to... read more
