Garmin Forerunner 35: Data Fields

Change the data fields on your Garmin Forerunner 35 GPS Running Watch

One of the first things I do when I get a new GPS watch is customize the Data Fields. I prefer watches that have 3 fields on screen at once and at least 2 pages of fields.

Garmin Forerunner 35: Lap Function

It’s been over 5 years since I focused my training to race the marathon distance. That year I did lots of tempo work, lots of long slow runs, and perhaps most ...

VAVA MOOV28 Wireless Sport Earphones Review

VAVA MOOV28 Sport Earphones

I have been listening to podcasts during runs for a while now. Favorite podcasts include the Radiolab, The Rich Roll Podcast, The Tim Ferris Show, Freakonomics Radio . . . I could go on. Podcasts are so much better than music because you get wrapped up in a story that can last hours. So the miles can fly by. If I ...

Time to Spring Forward!

Timex Ironman Watch Feature

It’s that time of year again!  And I am stoked that we spring forward today.  Yeah, it stinks to lose that hour overnight – but now we get nice long evenings with daylight.  And that means more time to train after work.

Gear Review: Rad Laces

I never had an issue with my good old fashioned shoe laces. Generally I would slip my shoes on without retying them for each run, but occasionally they would feel a little loose and I would give in. Recently a buddy of mine gave me a pair of Rad Laces to try out and I have to say I was ...
