Reebok All-Terrain 2.0 In-Depth Review

Reebok has come out with their much anticipated update to the Reebok All-Terrain Series with the Reebok All Terrain Super 2.0. What many people were hoping for after the first version was an upgrade in the durability and possibly making them wider in the forefoot to accommodate people with feet wider than a ballerina. Interestingly enough they only slightly updated the upper skin of the shoe and left the shoes last completely untouched. While improving on the upper they also added 0.28 oz. Read more [...]

Reebok TR Wild Review

The Reebok TR Wild is a shoe that doesn't get mentioned much in the obstacle course racing world but should be. What the TR Wild brings is a budget friendly, entry level, OCR shoe.

TomTom Cardio In-Depth Review

This is one of the most pleasant reviews I've had the pleasure of writing - it is a story of redemption for the TomTom Cardio watch. Previously I purchased the watch from a third-party reseller and wrote a review that pointed out how poorly the watch functioned.

How To Change the Watch Band on Garmin Forerunner 10 and 15

Recently I managed to tear up the watch band on my Garmin Forerunner 15 while doing some car work after a run.

It turns out there is a wide variety of sellers on eBay and Amazon with exact replacements for about $10-$20. Here is the one I went with - Garmin Replacement Band For Forerunner 10 - Large.

Marc Pro Review

I looked at the research behind EMS (electronic muscle stimulator) devices to find out how much a performance-driven athlete could really benefit from electrical stimulation, and I appreciated how Marc Pro focuses on where EMS really has the most potential: recovery. Plus, with some of my favorite OCR athletes personally using Marc Pro, I had to give it a try myself. Marc Pro Technology The idea behind EMS is to stimulate nerves and muscles by passing current through. However, different frequencies Read more [...]
