Article Recommendation: Alex Hutchinson on Choosing the Right Running Shoe

Quick post here to point you to an article by Alex Hutchinson in The Globe and Mail titled “Which running shoe is right for you?” You might know Alex as the author of the the Sweat Science blog at Runner’s World, and he emailed me a few weeks ago for some commentary on the current […]

More 2015 Shoe Previews From

Yesterday I posted a link to an article on Believe in the Run that featured photos of a bunch of new shoes to be released next year. I just finished reading through a similar post by Brian Metzler on, and there are a few shoes featured that were not shared on BITR. Among them […]

2015 Running Shoe Previews via Believe in the Run

My posting (and running) plans for the week were wiped out by a stomach bug that has largely resigned me to being plastered to the couch. I though I’d instead refer you to my buddy Thomas Neuberger’s preview of 2015 running shoes. Thomas attended The Running Event last week in Austin, Texas and has provided a […]

Catching Kayla: Great Story via ESPN

Last week an ESPN video was circulating around the web that featured high school runner Kayla Montgomery. It’s an amazing video, and the only thing I’m going to say about it is that if you haven’t already, you need to watch it. You can do so below:

What Shoes Did the Top Runners Wear at the 2014 NYC Marathon?

Thought Runblogger readers might be interested in this – Sneaker Report just posted a roundup of the shoes worn by the top 100 runners at the 2014 New York City Marathon. Lots of adidas Adios Boost 2 (my adios Boost 2 review here) and Nike Zoom Streaks (various versions). In a related article, Let’s Run […]

This Week in Runblogging: September 29 to October 5 2014

Last week I took a look at the Hoka Huaka. It was my second experience in a Hoka shoe (I reviewed the Hoka Clifton a few weeks ago), and this one was a better match for my stride. Compared to the Clifton, the Huaka provides a firmer, more responsive ride with a less rockered sole. […]

This Week in Runblogging: September 22 to 28 2014

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

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 […]

This Week in Runblogging: September 15 to 21 2014

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, […]

This Week in Runblogging: September 8 to 14 2014

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 […]

Two Weeks in Runblogging: August 25 to September 7 2014

Last weekend was the Labor Day Holiday weekend here in the US so I did not do a weekly roundup. As such, we’ll be covering two weeks worth of posts here. Runblogger Posts From the Past Two Weeks Ultra Race Report: Gratitude and Distillation at the Bighorn 100 Trail Run September 4, 2014- Guest post […]

This Week in Runblogging: August 18 to August 24 2014

Last 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 […]

This Week in Runblogging: August 11 to August 17 2014

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 […]

This Week in Runblogging: August 4 to August 10 2014

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 […]

This Week in Runblogging: July 28 to August 3 2014

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 […]
