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


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.

Dirty Runner: Blisters – Causes and Prevention


I’ll let you in on a little secret.  Running 100 miles is not that hard.  For most races you get at least 30 hours to do it.  You only have to run a little over 4 miles per hour to break 24 hours.  Almost anybody who has a strong will and puts in a decent […]

I just read a fascinating article in the New Yorker about a guy who has supposedly made a living out of cheating his way to sub-3:00 finishes in marathons around the country.
