It seems like each weekend during the summer you can find either a half or full marathon race to run. Knowing a few expert tips and having the right gear can make all the difference in having an enjoyable race. Below are a few suggestions to get you through your next marathon.
The Speedgoat is not the newest shoe from Hoka One One, but I would definity take a look at it. I have run in a variety of different shoes but find myself grabbing for these on most trail runs. The Speedgoat are light, have great cushion and are extremely grippy.
I have now had the opportunity to review a few of the different sleeping pads that Klymit makes, but the Dash 10 is the first pack. The Dash 10 was designed for activities that require a fast and light pack. I have mainly used this pack while trail running but took it out on a few hikes.
The first time I heard about goTenna I was super intrigued. I do a lot of trail running and hiking in the mountains where cell service can be weak or nonexistent and having a solution for communicating while in the backcountry could be a life saver. goTenna was gracious enough to send out a test pair and I took some time to see what they could do.
I am amazed at how many people don’t understand what a good pair of sunglasses can do for their eyes. The Wolcott from Native is a great example of a pair of glasses that will help protect your eyes while out playing in the sun. They have a smaller frame and polarized lens which makes them great for active outdoor activities.
