NOTHING NEW ON RACE DAY. I’ve repeated this little nugget of wisdom to myself and countless other runners. Race day is not the day that you want to have a variable that could cause you unknown stress or make matters worse. You want everything that you can control to be controlled. There are VERY few companies […]

Saucony Burn Out LS 2

Just as I thought the mornings were getting cooler the weather threw me a curve ball this morning with its high temperatures and muggy humidity. My speedy running friend and I agreed the weather was miserable but decided we probably should not complain about it because in a few short months our runs will be filled […]

My early morning runs under the stars have been reminding me that fall is just around the corner. It is cooler in the mornings than when I was running with the stroller so it’s given me a chance to test of some of the new gear from Saucony’s Fall 2012 line. One of my instant […]

I am one of those runners who takes water on almost every single run. I struggle with dehydration constantly – so even an easy 5 miler can leave me feeling terrible after if I don’t bring water along. The Clean Bottle is a bottle that opens not only from the top but the bottom as […]

At the start line of B & A Marathon

I’m always on the hunt for the perfect black capri. You would have thought by now I would have found one that I was in love with but I hadn’t. There were plenty I liked – some I liked A LOT others I liked a LITTLE. Some I would even go so far as to say […]

Pure Fit Bars

With a plethora of energy bars on the market today you would think it would be easy to find an option that tastes good and does what you want it to with out fake ingredients, lots of sugar and way too many calories. It seems that often times if something tastes great – it’s not that […]

Bamboo Bottle 2

Never did I ever think that I could combine my love of drinking out of a mason jar glass with the aspect of being able to take my drink with me on the go. The Bamboo Bottle Company proved to me that you can have your water and still enjoy the container you drink it […]

Omron Watch 1

I’ll be honest with you and tell you that before I tested out this heart rate monitor/watch I didn’t really run with my heart rate monitor that much. The reason being I hate the chest strap and more often than not the times I am most curious about my heart rate are when I am not […]

Introducing the Saucony Shadow Genesis….. I’ve been running in this gem of a shoe for months now, alternating it between my Kinvara’s. If you asked me 6 months ago if I believed you could buy an $80 running shoe and have it be a GOOD shoe I would have told you no way. [Insert foot […]

Saucony Beanie

The Run Vibe Beanie and the DryLete Loose-Fit Beanie are my two favorite winter beanies from Saucony. The DryLete Beanie is thinner than the Run Vibe but helps protect from the biting winter wind. It is tight enough that I can just put my hair in a ponytail or braid and tuck it up in […]

As the days get colder and the nights get darker I find myself wanting to be NOT only warm but also visible. Meet Vizipro Pink from Saucony. There isn’t a piece in this line that I don’t love. Saucony hit a home run with the bright flashy color on the DryLete Sport Top and the […]

I am in love with this hat. I do not typically like winter running beanies because they itch my head – this hat is different. On the interior of the hat a fleece like material is sewn all around similar to a headband. It keeps the hat from itching my head and keeps me warm […]

In this world of too many choices it is often hard to find products that work and weed out those that claim to work. If we were all millionaires this would not matter, we could buy with reckless abandon and not worry about wasting $15 on a headband. Alas, most of us are not millionaires. […]

If you are looking for arm warmers that provide function over fashion [though I do still think they are a fashionable solid color] check out the Saucony Elite Arm Warmers. They are tight enough to offer some compression, but not so tight they are uncomfortable. They have never ONCE slipped down and have worked well […]

It is no big surprise I like Saucony. I also like finding deals. Finding deals on something I am willing to pay full price for is one of those deals I never pass up. Saucony has this great section on their website called LAST CHANCE. There is limited stock of these items, so they typically […]
