Gear Review: Yurbuds Ironman Series

Today we have two reviews of the Ironman Series Yurbuds. I’ve been there before, and I know a lot of you have also: on your run when one (or both) of your headphones conks out on you. It usually happens about 3-6 months into their lifespan. It’s for this reason that I continually buy cheap headphones. I know that buying the cheap brands doesn’t make much sense logically because quality is an assumed compromise, but I’ve struggled with expensive brands … Continue reading

Rudy Project: Sterling Helmet review

Rudy Project: Sterling Cycling Helmet Review A short while ago I received and reviewed a race kit sent to me by Rudy Projects.

Newton shoe review: Lady Isaacs vs. Gravity

Last June I started training for my first marathon. As I increased my training mileage, I developed a nasty case of plantar fasciitis that has plagued me ever since. I did everything I was ‘supposed’ to do to help remedy the problem: visited a podiatrist and a sports medicine doc, bought shoe inserts and custom orthotics, ART, cortisone shot, deep tissue massage, took time off, ultrasounds, and physical therapy. None of these relieved my symptoms. During this time I was … Continue reading
