This post was written for and first appeared on Harold being Harold. The Nike React Miler, a shoe that came out in 2020, is new, at least compared to my usual shoe reviews, although version 2’s release is imminent. Why these running shoes? Early in February, I was having a lot of problems with my right foot. As a result of those foot problems, I … Continue reading Nike React Miler – 50 Mile Review
Another pair of older shoes, but they were from a brand that has intrigued me since they came out. On Running shoes look different, but have a reputation for outstanding quality and that their running shoes are very firm. I wanted to find out for myself, so here we are. The only reason I got to do this was a deal on eBay last Fall, … Continue reading On Cloudflyer og -40 Mile Review
Today was one of those snow flurry days. It snowed a little most of the day, without accumulating more than an inch. Enough to coat the ground and make things slippery. True to my word yesterday, I did my pre-run warm-up before heading out the door. Yes, I could tell it helped a little on the first mile. I know that I need to keep … Continue reading First Run 361 Santiago On a Good Day for Testing – RunLog 1/5/21
Yes, I am reviewing another older shoe – the 361 Degree Meraki v1. V2 is out already and versions 3 and 4 have been slated to be released in 2021 from what I am hearing. It has been a while since I did a running shoe review, not because I haven’t been running and trying different shoes – I have. It is more that I … Continue reading 361 Degree Meraki – 50 Mile Review
Okay this is getting a little ridiculous — another day, another first run in a pair of new running shoes. Today it is the 361 Degree Meraki v1’s turn. It is the season when shoes tend to suddenly appear on the doorstep as presents and who am I to not give in to the very normal urge for the running shoe geek in me to … Continue reading First Run 361 Degree Meraki v1
I don’t know about you, but over the course of a day, I read, listen to, and watch a lot of “stuff” that helps make me think. Add that up over the course of a day, week, month, or years and you have accumulated a great deal of knowledge. I think most of us are that way. Beyond the main ideas and a few facts, … Continue reading Google Keep Notes – Becoming My Second Brain?
This is one of those pair of shoes that have intrigued me since they first came out last year. You know something with a wide toebox, new foam and a plate (while plastic, not carbon), that had some great reviews, but also had some that were less than enthusiastic. Yep, the Topo Zephyr. I bought the shoes from REI used gear shop for 1/2 retail … Continue reading First Impressions – Topo Zephyr
Yep, another shoe that is about a year old and with all the new super shoes coming out, it is one that a lot of runners are forgetting how good it is. The Skechers GoRun Ride 8. The GRR8 had a lot of great reviews when it first came out, but like most things in the running world after 3-4 months, they are now old … Continue reading Skechers GoRun Ride 8 – 50 Mile Review
