One Year Review: Saucony Peregrine 7 Trail Shoe

Given my affinity for these, I’m kind of surprised I haven’t written about them previously! Last week during a training run I took a little bit of time to review how the Saucony Peregrine 7 trail shoes have held up over the past year of trail running. In running, it’s very rare to have a […]

Joint Supplementation – My Take

This is not an article about science or studies. It’s purely anecdotal and potentially coincidental, but it’s my experience nonetheless. I came off the NYC marathon on a runner’s high. I posted a great time (my first marathon) and was excited to get back to running. Unfortunately the next three months were plagued by knee […]

How to use the Relive App

A couple weeks ago, I saw @ImInHereSomewhere post up an epic visualization of his run and I had to know more!

One piece of advice I wish I had been given sooner was to “eat more protein.” Twenty years ago, conversations about protein just didn’t happen the way they do today (even Cheerios talks about the grams of protein they have ON THE BOX!). Of course, there are a lot of things that have protein in […]

Kinetic Road Machine Trainer [Review]

In Florida, I was spoiled. A dedicated trail system that ran without automotive interruption for 20 miles was just outside my front door. It was wide, freshly paved and humid as hell! Upon relocating to Los Angeles, I knew that there would be plenty of amazingly scenic mountain roads to conquer and yet something nagged […]
