Pace

Click here to listen to our audio review

One of the most technically advanced designs ever created for smaller faces. Pace comes with a number accessories including; cool read case, extra lens, cleaning cloth and extra strap.  The bows actually snap off the frame allowing you to install the wide and functional elastic strap.  This is extremely handy if participate in water activity or traveling at the speed of sound down the side of a mountain on skis, bike or maybe riding bulls.

Lens quality – great.  You will not find these glasses at your discount store.  They are the real deal. I like.

Listen to our audio review

FootKinetics has developed what I may consider the best invention next to handheld water bottles.  They have a protective foot cream that claims to prevent blisters.

I’M GAME!

  • Contains a high percentige of specialty hard waxes that make the stuff lasts all day!
  • Unique dimpled applicator that helps massage the cream onto your foot

  • Lasted the entire run, but wasn’t a mess to clean up on my socks
  • Available in 5.5 oz ($16.99) and 3 oz ($9.99)

I am looking forward to continued testing as my runs get longer throughout the summer.

Altra Lone Peak 1.5

Listen to our audio review

Inspired by Lone Peak, one of the rockiest, toughest mountains in the Wasatch Range, The Lone Peak™ was designed to conquer the Wasatch 100. While the foot-shaped design allows athletes to stay relaxed and comfortable for hours, this do-everything mountain shoe promotes happy feet, increases ankle stabilization and improves form with the Zero DropTM platform.

I have tested this shoe on the Western States Trail, through canyons, water crossings and through the local parking lot.  2 thumbs up.  We hit the details on this audio review.
