Contour Roam 3 Camera Review

This is a great action camera...but I won't be using it. It's no secret that GoPro is king of the action cameras that you can attach to your body, especially within OCR's so I'll be comparing the Contour Roam 3 to the GoPro. First off, let me just highlight a few of the features that the Contour has that goes above and beyond what the GoPro offers: 1) It looks less dorky. Face it, the GoPro looks as if your carrying around a tiny phylactery box on your head. You're known as 'one of those Read more [...]

FRESHeTECH All-Terrain Sound Speaker Review

When I heard my ticket called at the GORMR extravaganza, I had no idea what I had won. I was ecstatic to find out that it was the All-Terrain Sound Speaker from FRESHeTECH.

Either way, these intended uses are only the second or third best reasons to buy the Blender Bottle GoStak system – because it’s awesome Read more [...]

Reebok All Terrain Supers Review

When I received the new Reebok All Terrain Supers, I was excited as a kid opening a Christmas present. Touted as being designed with the help of obstacle course runners specifically for OCRs, these shoes have been craved since being partially unveiled during the telecast of the Spartan World Championships back in December. Out of the box they look fantastic. Vibrant colors and attractive styling makes this a good looking pair of shoes. The design was different from what I've been used to because Read more [...]

Trail Toes Cream Review

Trail Toes advertises itself as being a “Phenomenal, Ultra-Extreme, Anti-friction foot and body cream”. I received my jar of this cream in Tampa, Florida right before running in the Special Ops Spartan Sprint. I knew that running an Obstacle Course Race in a stadium was going to present a unique mixture of running surfaces, stairs, ramps, and obstacles to negotiate. So I followed their directions and slathered the cream on the sides of my feet and my heels, then between each toe. My particular Read more [...]
