This Week in Runblogging: August 18 to August 24 2014

Hoka Clifton GrayLast 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 pair of Cliftons so far and they are an interesting shoe – super light, roomy, but a little softer than I usually like. Need to get more miles on them before rendering a final verdict.

runScribe1. I posted last week on the Kickstarter campaign for the runScribe device (which looks very cool!), Steve Magness has had the opportunity to play with one for a bit. Check out Steve’s runScribe post to get an idea of what the device can do for workout analysis or comparing biomechanics between footwear.

2. Another thoughtful post by Steve Magness titled “What’s Your Bias?

4. Not a lot of shoe post recs this week, but Running Warehouse covers the New Balance Fresh Foam 980 Trail on their blog.

5. Cool article on the New York Times Well Blog on how dogs fuel for endurance running (skip the Gu!). Unfortunately my canine running partner has been out for most of the summer with a knee injury. He’s doing fine now and wants to run, but the prospect of an expensive knee surgery has me taking a very cautious approach!

6. Gear Junkie posted on Rob Krar’s GPS data from the Leadville 100.  Very interesting insight into the pacing approach of an elite ultramarathoner. Hat tip to Gordon Harvey for the article find.

    My current favorite running shoe is the Hoka Stinson Tamarac. Until I found these shoes my knees would always ache and running was very limited. They saved my love for running. I am so thankful for Hoka!! Happy running!
