Introducing your 2011 dailymile team

Alright, dailymilers, they’re here and they’re excited. The 2011 team is made up of dailymilers that have been hand selected by you, the dailymile community!

Running Shoe Review: Saucony Kinvara vs. Newton Gravitas

Saucony has jumped on the minimalist running bandwagon with its recent release of the Saucony Progrid Kinvara, a lightweight (7.70z) training/racing shoe that boasts a smaller-than-usual heel-toe offset of only 4mm (this essentially means that the heel is only 4mm thicker than the forefoot). The upshot of this is that the Kinvara, with it’s relatively flat sole, is better suited than many shoes on the market to promoting a midfoot/forefoot footstrike. We decided to put the Kinvara to the test … Continue reading

But then knowing in the back of your head that this crazy girl is going to publish it on a heavily traffic’d blog–that’s a lot to swallow. All of us on the dailymile team already have a lot of guts, but the folks that have been introducing themselves to the community … Continue reading

And then there were more

You must think we have dailymile ambassadors coming out of the woodwork! But I guess that’s just because dailymile is made up of such inspirational people that at the heart we’re all ambassadors. This week a few more of us from the team want to introduce ourselves–I’m calling this New England (plus). The plus is basically for everyone other than Peter L. in today’s episode.
