Protective Trail Shoe Review Roundup 2016: Montrail Trans Alps, La Sportiva Akasha, Saucony Xodus ISO, Altra Lone Peak 3.0, Pearl Izumi Trail N3, The North Face Ultra Endurance

In an effort to consolidate the vast amount of shoes I’ve been able to try in the last 4-6 months, I’m going to group shoes into a couple categories and give brief reviews on each of them.  I’m still planning on doing in depth reviews on shoes as well (and have a few shoes already […]

Light Trail Shoe Review Roundup 2016: Montrail Fluidflex F.K.T., Scott Kinabalu RC, Salmomon Sense Pro 2, Salomon S-Lab Sense 5 Ultra, Brooks PureGrit 5

In an effort to consolidate the vast amount of shoes I’ve been able to try in the last 4-6 months, I’m going to group shoes into a couple categories and give brief reviews on each of them.  I’m still planning on doing in depth reviews on shoes as well (and have a few shoes already […]

2016 Black Friday and Cyber Monday Running Shoe and Gear Deals

Each year around this time I put up a post containing a collection of Black Friday and Cyber Monday sale links. Basically what I do is spend some time scouring the web for running-related holiday sales, and aggregate them all into a single post – kind of a one-stop shop for runners looking for discounted […]

New Balance Zante 2 Review: Solid Sequel to a Great Shoe

It’s been a long time since I’ve put over 100 miles on a pair of shoes. I’m not entirely sure that I exceeded that with the New Balance Zante 2 (I don’t track miles on shoes anymore), but since I’ve run most of my miles for the past several months in them, I’d have to […]

Saucony Peregrine 6 Review: Interesting Update That Needs Some Refinement

While I wouldn’t say I have a long history with the Peregrine line (I’ve never really taken to the shoes), I have run in versions 1, 2, 5 and 6, so I have some sense of the evolution of the shoe. Overall, I feel that it has improved over time.  Saucony overhauled the Peregrine for 2016 […]

On Blogging: Why I Hate My Email Inbox

I hate to admit this, but for the past 9 months I have largely ignored my blog’s email inbox. The reason was mostly due to the fact that I have returned to teaching, and free time during the school year to attend to the blog was minimal. I apologize if you have sent me a […]

Saucony Kinvara 7 Review

The Saucony Kinvara has long been a top option for me among low-drop, lightweight training shoes. I’ve run marathons in the Kinvara, and have had positive experiences with most iterations of the shoe that have come out. Since the arrival of the Kinvara 7 a few months ago, I’ve heard a lot of mixed opinions […]

John Oliver on Doping in Elite Athletes

Just watched this earlier today – entertaining, but also kind of a depressing look at doping in elite athletes.

Old Tech That Works: Four Running-Fitness Gadgets That Have Stood the Test of Time

Last week I thought that my Garmin Vivofit (original model) activity tracker was dead. I had replaced the batteries, but they died within a week, and another set did the same. It turns out it was the batteries that were bad – teaches me to buy cheap from Amazon – and a fresh set from […]

Skechers GOtrail Ultra 3: Max Cushion Done Right

For any of you who have followed Runblogger for a while, you know that I haven’t been crazy about very many max-cushioned shoes.  This is not to say that I am closed off to the idea.  Despite starting from a more minimalist framework in my running years ago, I continue to try to be open […]

Topo MT-2 and Hydroventure: Large Refinements in Topo’s Trail Line

I’ve running in Topo’s shoe offerings since the inception of the brand.  My general experience has been good, with an appreciation for the concepts they were trying to get across and the approach they took. However, the execution felt just a little lacking, with some materials not as refined, and the ride not very notable. […]

Review: Brooks PureCadence 5

With my return to teaching, I’ve realized that time constraints necessitate making a change to how I write reviews (or they’ll never get done!). I’m going to try a more streamlined approach that I hope will allow me to churn through a backlog of reviews that have been accumulating since the beginning of the year. Here goes… With […]

Brooks Neuro Review

The Brooks Neuro is one of the very few Brooks shoes I’ve run in.  I’ve only ever run the Cascadia 10 and Green Silence, and not many miles in either of those.  I was very intrigued by the design concept when I saw them at Outdoor Retailer last year, especially the decoupled design that lets […]

In Defense of Crocs: A Response to Huffington Post

When I look at the pair of Crocs in the photo to the left, I’m reminded of Donald Trump. Orange. Puffy. (Politically) Indestructible. But mostly I’m reminded of how unfairly both have been treated by the media. Terribly unfairly. I’ll leave more politically informed sources to discuss Mr. Trump’s woes (to be honest, I’d rather […]

Montrail Caldorado Review: Next-Gen Montrail

Montrail is a shoe company with a long history in trail running, and with ultra running in particular (at least from my viewpoint). They sponsored the Montrail Ultra Cup and Western States 100 for quite a long time, as well as supporting an ultra running team very early on, and being one of the premier […]
