Product Review – Altra Escalante

The Altra Escalante is the first Altra using the new Altra Ego™ midsole cushioning material which claims to offer outstanding rebound, light weight, and superior comfort.  It is also the first Altra with a knit upper.  After being disappointed with the Altra Torin 2.5, and lacking a good medium-cushioned road shoe since my previous favorite pair had too many miles on them, the Altra Torin 2.0, I was really excited to try out the new Altra Escalante.

10 Tips for Running on a Business Trip

Sydney Harbor Bridge

Sydney Harbor Bridge

Working for a global company, I’m often on the road for work.  In a typical year, I travel 100,000 – 150,000 miles a year by plane all over the world which makes it tough to stick to a training schedule. I always recommend traveling with your running gear because you never know when you may be able to squeeze in an unplanned run.  Since I spend so much time on airplanes and in airports away from my home trails in unfamiliar cities and towns, I’ve come up with these 10 tips which help me run when I’m on the road.

Product Review – Altra Lone Peak 3.0

The Altra Lone Peak 3.0 is the 5th generation of the Lone Peak shoe (1.0, 1.5, 2.0, 2.5, 3.0) and the fourth generation that I have owned.  The Lone Peak 1.5 was actually my very first pair of Altra shoes, and I’ve been running in zero drop shoes ever since.  I was really looking forward to trying these shoes out!

Product Review – Altra Olympus 2.0

Altra Olympus 2.0

After a long Utah winter that saw me unexpectedly putting hundreds of miles on my Altra Lone Peak Neoshell, the weather finally changed and I’ve been able to get a full lifetime out of my Altra Olympus 2.0.  If you haven’t had a chance, feel free to check out my first impressions of the Altra Olympus 2.0 and then come back here for the full review.

Gorge Waterfalls 100k Race Report

In front of Wahkena Falls

Late last year, some friends in one of my local running groups, Wasatch Mountain Wranglers, signed up for the Rainshadow Running Gorge Waterfalls 100k and posted in our Facebook group.  Caught up in the subsequent fervor, and with my eye on wanting to qualify for Western States, I jumped at the chance and signed up!  The race ended up selling out in less than a day, so I’m really glad I made the decision before it was too late.

I’d been eyeing the Mio Link Optical Heart Rate Monitor for a few months having seen the Mio technology (which was developed in conjunction with Philips) slowly show up directly integrated in to more and more watches like the Garmin Forerunner 225 and TomTom Cardio, so about 6 months ago I decided to pull the trigger and order one.

Did you get a new GPS watch over the holidays and wonder how you could automatically link your data to your Strava account without having to manually enter it?  Are you tired of importing and exporting GPX, TCX, and FIT files? Did you even know that it was possible to automatically upload your data to Strava?

Product Review – Altra Lone Peak Neoshell

The Lone Peak Neoshell is Altra’s winter specific shoe, and is based on the popular Lone Peak 2.0. While they may both be zero drop, have the same foot shaped toe box, look (mostly) identical, be built on the same last, and share the same name; the Neoshell is distinctly different thanks to a partnership with Polartec. The Neoshell upper is built from a proprietary material provided by Polartec that makes the Neoshell waterproof.

2015 Running Year In Review

2015 Year In Review

I always enjoy looking back at my year of running on the last day of the year and seeing what I accomplished (or didn’t), seeing if I met my goals, and just re-living some of my running memories (highs and lows) as I review my log data.
