Finishing Antelope Island 50K by Bryan (2)

Hi, my name is Emily, and I like to run long distances. Not super long distances. I’m not one of the hardy individuals who straps on their sneakers to run fifty, sixty, even one hundred or more miles at a time. Not yet, anyway. But I do run a good number of marathons and 50K (31 mile) races, which are … Read More

It's time...welcome to Athletes' Village!

“I really didn’t train well enough for this…I’m already tired!” I thought at mile 11.

Today I will be reviewing a pair of shoes that has been on my list to review for much longer than I ever intended–especially given how great they are. (We have a very busy few months, hence our absence from the site.)  In fact, my Topo ST’s have more miles on them than any other pair of shoes prior to … Read More

Through the finish line.

As many of our readers have probably noticed, our blog posts have been less frequent as of late, and I’m sure some of you are wondering why that is. The fact of the matter is, training for major events, like the Ironman (70.3 or 140.6), a marathon, ultra-marathons, or really anything over the half-marathon mark, can really take over your life! … Read More
