Faction Athletes Go to Switzerland to Ski the Steepest Lines of Their Lives – Gym Fitness Article

Faction Athletes Go to Switzerland to Ski the Steepest Lines of Their Lives When Faction released “The Collective” last fall, it surprised us—we expected the bevy of park shots and dub 10s, and they definitely delivered, but what really turned our heads were the staggering big mountain lines that Swiss skier Sam Anthamattan tackled. So when Faction rereleased a POV segment of Anthamatten dragging Wasatch young gun Andrew Pollard up some of his native steeps, we were psyched from the…

Hoka Clifton Edge Shoe Review – FueledByLOLZ – Running Fitness Article

Hoka Clifton Edge Shoe Review – FueledByLOLZ The Hoka Clifton Edge is a brand new shoe from Hoka One One. It’s called the “Hoka Clifton Edge,” not just the “Hoka Edge” because it is a version of the Hoka Clifton.  Usually, 2-3 shoes a year impress me on my first run, and I think: this is a good shoe. The Hoka Clifton Edge is one of them. According to Hoka, the Hoka Clifton Edge is a culmination of all of…

The scene was also…

Tifosi Running Sunglasses Review – FueledByLOLZ Often times people ask me: What running sunglasses do you wear? There are plenty of both expensive and inexpensive running sunglasses out there.

A few years ago, I stumbled upon Tifosi Sunglasses. With the exception of socks, sunglasses are one of the more underrated…

What a Virtual Run Challenge Taught Me – FueledByLOLZ – Running Fitness Article

What a Virtual Run Challenge Taught Me – FueledByLOLZ I never thought I would be a “virtual challenge” runner. It’s not that I thought virtual runs and virtual races were terrible, but they were never my cup of tea.  I also never thought we would be in a pandemic. Like many people, life and routines have drastically changed in the last few months. Earlier in the year, I had a calcaneus stress fracture. It healed well and it was truthfully…

UCAN Energy Bar Review – FueledByLOLZ – Running Fitness Article

UCAN Energy Bar Review – FueledByLOLZ Recently I started using a few UCAN Products while both running and cycling. One of my favorite products from UCAN is their new UCAN Energy bars, which I used during my 30k hike last weekend. What is UCAN? Another fueling company? I actually learned that UCAN dropped the “Generation” and they are just known as UCAN. Why UCAN Energy Bars? UCAN Energy Bars are the only brand that use SuperStarch, which allows for long-lasting…

Saucony Ride 13 Shoe Review – FueledByLOLZ – Running Fitness Article

Saucony Ride 13 Shoe Review – FueledByLOLZ The Saucony Ride has been a favorite of mine for the last few years. It’s a lightweight trainer from Saucony that has stayed relatively similar from year to year. The Saucony Ride ISO 2 is last year’s version, but Saucony has removed the ISO fitting and gone back to regular lacing. When Saucony introduced the ISO lacing a few years ago, I wondered how it would do, but for the most part it…

Tips for Morning Workouts – FueledByLOLZ – Running Fitness Article

Tips for Morning Workouts – FueledByLOLZ If you know me, you know I like to get my workouts done early. There is rarely a time I’m running after 9 am. The later the time, the less likely I’m going to run. While there is no right or wrong time to time, getting your workout done early means it’s one less thing you have to worry about it.  We shouldn’t be stressing about when we can work out during the day.…

Brooks Hyperion Tempo Shoe Review – FueledByLOLZ – Running Fitness Article

Brooks Hyperion Tempo Shoe Review – FueledByLOLZ The Brooks Hyperion Tempo is the lightweight, but cushioned trainer partner to the Brooks Hyperion Elite (the carbon plated shoe). In my opinion, the Brooks Hyperion Tempo is a better shoe for a lower price.  If you are familiar with the original Hyperion, it was a lightweight, responsive ride, racing shoe. It was designed as a true racing flat with a performance fit. The new Brooks Hyperion Tempo is similar but has more…

The Argument for Building a Base For Running (Now) – FueledByLOLZ – Running Fitness Article

The Argument for Building a Base For Running (Now) – FueledByLOLZ It doesn’t take a genius to know that we are in the middle of a pandemic.  Lives lost, businesses closed, and livelihoods broken—sports and racing fall in the least of priorities with that. So? So, many fall races have already been canceled. While there are still many big fall races that haven’t been canceled…it’s more or less, “they haven’t been canceled yet.” So Why Build a Running Base Now?…

Become a Better Skier Through Rock Climbing This Summer When I finally moved west after going to school in a midwestern burb, I did it to ski.

So I picked a cheaper sport. I took up rock climbing in high…

Brooks Hyperion Elite Shoe Review – FueledByLOLZ – Running Fitness Article

Brooks Hyperion Elite Shoe Review – FueledByLOLZ Brooks Hyperion Elite Shoe Review: I had high hopes for the Brooks Hyperion Elite. As you can tell by the first line, the hopes weren’t exactly met. Shocking, because Brooks rarely doesn’t bring their A-game.  It isn’t that I think the Brooks Hyperion Elite is a bad shoe, but I don’t know if I believe it’s a $250 shoe. Especially when the most similar shoes to the Brooks Hyperion Elite are racing flats…

Top 10 Surf Clips of the Month Last month, when Tahitian locals were free to enter the ocean after COVID-19 lockdown orders were lifted, a swell (in timely fashion) bombarded the End of the Road.
