New Gear Reviews

Posted by scott on January 20, 2010

I haven’t been posting a lot lately, many time commitments coaching hockey, holidays, etc.  I also tend to post more on Twitter these days since it is so easy to do from my phone, rather than take time for a post.

Having said that, I have also been writing a lot more Gear Reviews lately, and those pages don’t show up in the feed if you subscribe to this site.  So take a minute to browse those pages a bit if you are interested.

I have been trying out a lot of new gear this Winter, and am happy with a lot of things I’m using.  I’m sold on merino wool as a base layer.  I am also in love with my GoLite Wisp windshirt – I still can’t believe how warm it is for how light it is.  I took a break from FiveFingers and Feelmax shoes to test out some New Balance 100s.  This is a great shoe, and I will train in these for mid-range mileage, but I still like going minimal when I can.

Sights set on the Zumbro 100 – here we go!

    Scott. Steffan and I just got back from Canoecopia in Madison. He got a pair of KSO Fivefingers. He is very excited. He needed a pair of water shoes for paddling. The rep/salesperson was surprised when we told him about runners wearing them in 50 mile ultra’s. Also when Steffan rides his long board he will really be able to hang ten.

    Take care

    Dale – That is awesome! I hope he likes them. I found them very odd at first, but now love running in them. I think they can take a bit of getting used to. Did you guys ever see the book Born To Run? You should check that out. I’m planning on the Superior 100 this year, hope to see you guys there!
