Day After The Marathon

We did it!  Meagan and I both completed our first marathons this past Sunday, and since then, we’ve been trying to heal up by staying off our feet, rolling out the sore spots with a foam roller and The Stick, and wearing our recovery socks as much as possible.  For anyone who has completed a marathon (or other particularly difficult … Read More

Altra 1

About two years ago, this site was launched with little intention of having anyone outside of our family and close friends read it.  Little did we know that our little site would manage to pick up so much steam, giving us the ability to review products from so many different amazing companies.  Aside from our own growth, we’ve been able … Read More

As most long distance runners will tell you, running is just as much about mental toughness as it is about physical toughness. We’re now four days out from running our first marathon and, at this point, it feels like it’s all about the mental game. I’m confident in all of the training I’ve done, and my longest run of 21 … Read More

Color Me Pleasantly Surprised

Color Me Rad3

If you would have asked me just 2 years ago what the “fad” in foot races was going to be in 2013, I never would have guessed that Color/Zombie/Electric/Pumpkin/Santa Clause/Naked/Turkey/*fill in the blank* runs would be the answer.  That said, when Meagan and I first saw the “The Color Run 5k”, we went berserk.  The idea of running through paint … Read More

Merrell Proterra Vim (Mid) Sport Review

MeaganGeneral, Reviews, Shoe Reviews1 Comment

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

Sandals, socks, and toe shoes are just some of the types of footwear I never thought I would go running in prior to our introduction to minimalist shoes (not to mention going completely barefoot).  Just two years later and I’m going out for runs in all of the above, and now I can add 2 mm thick running moccasins (Soft … Read More

Lems Primal 2 Review

Lems Primal2 - 02

Terminator 2, Aliens, X-Men 2, Evil Dead 2, and The Dark Knight. All films that are arguably better than their predecessors.  And yet, as most movie fans know, it is rare that the sequel lives up to (or exceeds) the hype of the original. Apparently this is not the case in the shoe world. This year has already seen the introduction … 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
