I got sent a little care package of Heidi Klum for New Balance.  Super cool gear, high fashion meets serious athletic gear.
I love New Balance.  It may be the Boston in me but I can't enough of New Balance footwear and apparel.  As soon as I enter the Commonwealth I have two required stops, the New Balance outlet and Du...

How you protect your #feet makes a difference, especially if you have overlapping toes.

Hey everyone, a plug for a friend of mine (hope that's okay), but I think it's a pretty cool product for urban runners and I know, at least for me, in NYC, would be nice to have when trying to keep a particular pace.

The run-bell is a light weight, wearable bell that's meant to solve the issue of running in crowded areas where runners and pedestrians share the same path.

Is anyone else quite excited by the new TomTom Runner Cardio watch? Tracking heart rate is such a powerful indicator of how your body is coping during your run but I absolutely hate the hassle of wearing a chest strap to measure it. 

With this upcoming release, your heart rate is measured from the wrist, meaning you can collect data on every run without the need for extra accessories. Genius idea!
On the pulse with amazing features, the TomTom Cardio Runner arrives with a heart rate monitor inside the watch. Read the full review here.

This is more a preview than a review. Good info though. Looking forward to hearing how the actual watch works.

23g of Body Glide "For Her" selling at $8.99, versus 42g of generic Body Glide at $9.99.  Is there really a difference to justify the gender-specific markup, or is #BodyGlide 's marketing department being manipulative?

I actually use petroleum jelly between my toes for blister prevention. I carry a travel-size version and it seems to hold up.

The Adidas Adios Boost features a flexible lightweight mesh upper, a snug and secure reinforced heel, and a road-hugging feel even with a 10mm heel to toe drop. I'm not sure it would serve me well over a long 26.2 mile grind, but it did help me earn a shiny new 5K PR this season.

Are there any running clothes that don't look like running clothes? I just want something lightweight that wicks moisture and washes well and regularly. I don't want to wear sporty neon technical looking clothes and look like a serious runner!

Cool. That all sounds great. Aside from the skirts! I've tried cotton but found after a while of regular washing it degrades an holds... Aromas well.

Can a watch really improve running technique? The Forerunner 620 claims it can through features like vertical oscillation, ground contact time and cadence measure. 

If you want an understanding of what these features mean and how they are measured on the FR620, take a read of my latest post. I'd be interested to hear if any of you have tested these features on the FR 620.
Vertical oscillation, ground contact time & cadence measure affect running technique. Use the Garmin Forerunner 620 to analyse your style.

All of these seem very reasonable metrics. I know that since shortening my stride and increasing my cadence a few years back I've had far fewer injuries.

As for the others, just because the elites do them doesn't necessarily translate into better for the average runner, but the only way to know is to measure it and find out.

Picked up a new pair of Brooks GTS 14s today from Running Center. Can't wait to break them in tomorrow. I anticipate that old shoes were the recent cause of burnout and discomfort. 2 weeks til my 13.1 - GAME ON!

Interesting concept, but would suck if most of your runs are in-and-out routes.
 
Looking for a new fitness app? "Run an Empire" is a new alternate reality gaming app that challenges you to conquer territory and defend it from rivals. It's like the classic strategy game Risk--but the territory is your own neighborhood, and the only way to conquer it is to walk or run around it with your own two feet. http://f-st.co/b8cvYS4

Was thinking about this today.  Would be really helpful if they considered partnering/integrating with other waypoint trackers such as Garmin, Dailymile, Strava, and Nike.  After uploading your workouts to their sites, RaE could pull from their web services. This would solve the problem of having to manage multiple trackers at the same time during run for people that are already using another fitness tracking app on their mobile device, as well as satisfy people like me who already have a GPS watch and refuse to take their expensive phones on runs.  Also, by integrating behind the scenes, them capturing your data via an integration with systems runners already use makes the adoption that much more frictionless, leaving you to only worry about your empire growing and waning.

We see a lot of cases of toenail fungus in runners and there are a couple of reasons for this. The fungi that cause this kind of infection are everywhere, and they can get into running shoes fairly easily.

I'm a big fan of story running (i.e. Zombie. Run! and BattleSuit Runner) and it's great way to bring up training and it's fun!.  Here are few more reasons to consider it for your training.

Vibram appears to have another game-changer on their hands. We don't typically do gear reviews or anything, but Vibram is a shoe company with local roots and we heard they had big things coming. Here's the inside scoop on the soon-to-be-released Vibram Pheidippides.

If there was a scene in The Warriors where they stopped fighting and went for a run, this would be the shoe they all wore.
