Garmin Forerunner 245 – Dirty Old Sneakers – Running Fitness Article

Garmin Forerunner 245 – Dirty Old Sneakers Garmin recently released updates to most of the Forerunner models and I’ve checked out both the 945 (you can see that review here) and the 245. Before I get into it, I want you to know that I bought this myself so these are my thoughts and my thoughts alone. I didn’t get the option with Music so I paid $299 plus tax.  Here are my thoughts on th 245. After a few…

Gear Review: WAVE SKY WAVEKNIT 3 – Running Fitness Article

Gear Review: WAVE SKY WAVEKNIT 3 Thanks to Mizuno, I had a chance to spend some time checking out the Wave Sky Waveknit 3. And I’m happy to tell you that I like them! Mizuno did send these to me but I’m not receiving any compensation from them and all opinions are mine. So let’s start with the basics. These kicks are neutral so if you’re an over or under pronator, these won’t necessarily be the right fit for you.…

The Jimmycase – RandRuns – Running Fitness Article

The Jimmycase – RandRuns   After a recent incident where my iPhone fell out of my belt while running, and smashed into a lot of expensive pieces on the road, I decided that it might be a good idea to use a protective case with the new one.

» The Anatomy of a Running Shoe FueledByLOLZ – Running Fitness Article

The Anatomy of a Running Shoe: The anatomy of a running shoe is a post I’ve wanted to write for a while. Since I write a shoe review most weeks, it occurred to me that many people didn’t realize what the actual parts that made up a running shoe are. No shame in that; your only job is to make sure the shoe feels good when you wear it.  It is easier to describe what you like or don’t like…

» New Balance 1400v6 Shoe Review FueledByLOLZ – Running Fitness Article

The New Balance 1400v6 Shoe Review: The New Balance 1400 is a consistent and established racing flat for many runners. There is enough cushion to race a marathon, but it’s also light enough to race a hard mile. In my quest to find a marathon racing shoe for the New York City Marathon, I tried the New Balance 1400v6. Ultimately, I think the New Balance Fuelcell Rebel will be my marathon choice, but I like the ride of the NB…

Gear Review: Garmin Forerunner 945 – Running Fitness Article

Want to know if the Garmin Forerunner 945 is the right new GPS watch for you? Well, I’ll be doing an in depth review in a few weeks after I’ve had it a while longer, but in the interim, I wanted to get my initial thoughts out there. I do want to make it clear that I purchased this myself. Garmin didn’t send this to me, and I am not beholden to any company. I saw the launch last week…
