Merrell Proterra Vim (Mid) Sport Review

Merrell Connect Proterra HT 3

Fieldwork and minimalist shoes are not two things I ever planned on combining. Hiking over rubbly lava flows, through dense brush and over downed trees, and on steep slopes, all while carrying a pack loaded up with 40 pounds of rocks, requires sturdy shoes, whether I like it or not. Features like a thicker, stiffer sole and a high-cut vamp … Read More

Running Tall: Gear for Tall Women

ID-100170394

Being a 6’1″ tall woman has its advantages. For example, I can reach pretty much every top shelf I encounter, I’ve been tall enough to ride every roller coaster at Cedar Point (bonus points if you know where that is!) since I was about 8 years old, and being long-limbed was definitely an advantage in the pool when I swam … Read More

After a frigid winter and a fairly cool spring, and just as we welcome the first day of summer, temperatures are finally starting to ramp up in Wisconsin (93 ℉ today!).

From their inspired “Run Real” campaign, to the beautiful design and quality construction of the shoes themselves, it … Read More

It’s been a couple of years now since I’ve hopped in a pool to swim laps, and even longer since I swam competitively, but after spending 8 years on swim teams, including all through high school, the sport of swimming will always be near and dear to my heart. Swimming is an excellent all-around form of exercise, and I always … Read More

Lems Boulder Boot Review

Lems_BoulderBoot_1

My Stem Primal Origins, which are the original shoes made by Lems (before they were even called Lems), remain one of my favorite shoes I have tested for Technically Running. They have held up remarkably well considering the hundreds of walking and running miles I’ve put on them. You can imagine, then, that when I heard Lems was going to … Read More

Staying motivated is one of the biggest hurdles people face when it comes to working out, especially for those who are just beginning an exercise program. As someone who has been a (fairly) consistent runner for almost two years now, even I struggle to get myself out of the door. A training schedule for an upcoming race definitely helps motivate … Read More

Wear This, Not That: Running Edition!

ID-100111565

Deciding what to wear when you go running sounds like it should be simple. If it’s cold, add some layers. If it’s hot, slap on a pair of sunglasses, shorts, and a t-shirt. Easy, right? But wait, have you factored in how much you’ll heat up as you get warmed up and start to sweat? Or how about the wind … Read More
