Anything close to a typical large coffee is ideal and this hits the spot.
As I have been running for about three years now, I have seemed to get bored of the same run over and over. I run up the street around Walmart and back home. A good run no doubt, but it can get old in a hurry. There are many training programs out there and if you follow any of the marathon training programs, you know you have to put in a lot of miles. If you are like me, there is not enough time in the day. So I have some suggestions.

Each time that I start working on our coverage of the Outdoor Retailer Show I always feel a little overwhelmed. There are so many great products that come out each show and narrowing it down to just a few is always hard. Sometimes I feel like I should include all the products that we see as a team, but in the end always make the decision to highlight some of our favorites. In this Best of Show roundup, we have found 30 products that we are excited about for 2015. We have broken this Best in Show into 3 parts: Apparel, Equipment and Footwear. We hope you find this gear has interesting and innovative as we did.
HOKA ONE ONE Tor Ultra Hi WP
The first thing I thought of when I saw the Tor Ultra Hi WP is that I could run in those. Weighing slightly over one pound, the Tor Ultra Hi WP combines HOKA’s signature running shoe cushioning and Meta-Rocker geometry with a supportive high-top upper. The new silhouette is rich with performance enhancing features, including a new Vibram® MegaGrip outsole rubber with five millimeter lugs to provide traction over varied terrain, a leather and nylon mesh upper for durable support, and an eVent® waterproof, breathable membrane to keep feet dry.
