Many runners opt to use small, lightweight gaiters to fend off snow, sand, scree, and other trail debris. But you can also try this increasingly popular homemade option —just order some fabric and Velcro strips or Shoe Goo, and get in touch with your inner MacGyver. Save yourself some time by starting your post-run shower while still wearing your running clothes, so your apparel and even shoes, if especially muddy get a solid rinse, before hanging them out to dry.

This can reduce the need to run full loads of laundry so frequently after your runs. For wet running shoes, expedite the drying process by removing the footbeds and stuffing the insides of your shoes with balled-up newspaper.

Finally, Shokz heard my prayers and launched the mini version. Comes on every run for me. Soar Racing Vest , MoN-Sports Nutrition, Theragun Mini 2.

Rollerblade Twister - I picked up some skates again after not having a pair for a decade or so I used to inline speed skate back in the day. Inline skating is a great cross training modality - due to the full body nature of the motion, it's easy to get your HR up with virtually no impact.

PR Gear Bridge Soles for proving that quality and great design don't have to cost a fortune. Hoka Transpor t. My overall favorite everyday shoe. Is the Coros perfect? Tracksmith Allston lined half tights. It's the best half tight I've ever worn and my iPhone fits in the back pocket. Handy for those local races where we end up standing around for a couple of hours after the race, chatting and taking pictures.

Wellness In Motion Boston - the one stop shop for all things wellness, from chiropractic care to PT to strength training to dry needling to shockwave therapy to sports massage to nutrition counseling to podiatrists to sports psychology to everything a runner needs to keep running.

Dr Ian Nurse, founder of WIM and elite runner himself, is a magician who can quickly assess an injury and get you on the road to recovery!

New Balance Impact Shorts have been my favorite. The pockets are more than enough to fit anything you need, while the 5 inch length and overall compression are ideal. RTR Fractel Cap is very lightweight and breathable.

Soar Single t 2. Shyu Socks 3. Ciele hats. Of course! RoadTrailRun Fractel hats with my favorite the Bucket! Plenty of shade, plenty of breathability and never fly off the head even in strong winds. What is your overall favorite Run Brand of Run shoe or otherwise.

Hoka continues to deliver and evolve in ways that not every company is right now. ASICS - Superblast, Fujitrail and Nimbus were all big hits for me. The new Novablast probably adds to this list. Honorable mentions: adidas - great updates on Adios and Boston, brave attempts with Prime X and EVO 1!

ON , for their evolution from firm and harsh running shoes to something really nice now, and their top quality garments. Perhaps they're only lacking in the top-end racer category.

Honorable mention - Merrell Trail, Saucony Trail. adidas continues to push the envelope and deliver superb products, competing with Nike at the highest level. Saucony - Their shoes are always on the mark, and are usually tough to critique.

ASICS - I find myself using their shoes several times a week, whether it's a Nimbus, MagicSpeed, or Metaspeed, they always fit and perform well. Saucony , Honorable Mentions: Topo and ASICS. Saucony continues to fire on all cylinders for both road and dirt - and I didn't even test their plated race shoes that everyone raves about.

Topo made a massive turn for the best with the Atmos, and ASICS was very similar to Saucony, when you're that good at road and trail, it's a great thing. New Balance , ON, Topo Athletic. Nike returns to the top for me this year, with standout options across training and racing.

Honorable mentions of Atreyu, which really rounded out its lineup by adding the Race Model late in and maintaining the Daily Trainer and - my favorite - Base Model , and Craft who once they figure out sizing can be a major player in road runner.

adidas For getting their Adios line on the right track again. I enjoyed the Adios 8 and the PrimeX 2 Strung is a fantastic shoe. Honorable mentions:. Strong year for adidas this year. Evo Pro 1, Terrex Agravic Speed Ultra, Boston 12, Adios 8.

Runner up:. Seem they finally getting their and accepted to rethink their midsole design. Solid updates and for me personally the Fast-Trac Apex was a real pleasant surprise. ASICS : The product lineup from ASICS was already decent and continuously improved during the last couple of years.

In , ASICS ramped up especially their trail game with the introduction of the Fuji Speed 2 for faster mid distances races on technical terrain and the very comfortable Trabucco The Fuji Lite 4 combines the accommodating fit of a road shoe with a grippy outsole and a well balanced midsole which make it an excellent door to trail shoe.

If rumors hold true, a trail version of the Metaspeed will round up the lineup with a light carbon plated long distances racer which should be a quite interesting shoe too.

On the road, the lineup is almost complete and flawless. While I would wish for a little more responsive midsole in the Nimbus, it is still a very comfortable recovery shoe. The Novablast 4 is an excellent daily trainer which also works well for longer distances.

The Superblast features the same midsole foam as the Metaspeed and is therefore a great option as an uptempo trainer and also works well as a long run option for faster runners.

Saucony: While Saucony switched to a 2 year update cycle for some of their most popular shoes like the Endorphin Speed 3 and the Endorphin Pro 3, the brand still has a great line up in That's because shoes like the Speed 3 and the Pro 3 are still top notch shoes in their categories.

In addition, the Saucony Triumph is one of the most comfortable and versatile shoes on the market even though it had "just" an upper update.

With the Saucony Endorphin Elite the brand also added an excellent race day option for ambitious runners to their lineup. It will be very interesting to see how the major update will perform in , especially the Endorphin Speed 4 and the Endorphin Pro 4 as well as the re-designed Triumph 22 which was shown recently at the TRE in Austin, Texas.

HOKA: Similar to Saucony, HOKA did not update some of their most successful shoes in like the Mafate Speed 4, the Speedgoat 5 or the Mach 5 which are still awesome choices in their categories.

In addition, with the introduction of the Rocket X 2, HOKA made a huge statement in the super shoe game for road racing. Their outlook also seems promising: A more aggressive outsole for the Tecton X3, a more energetic midsole of the Mach X 2 and an updated Mach 6 with a supercritical foam midsole promise an exiting running shoe year I haven't found a Saucony shoe I did not like.

Endorphin line continues to be an absolute favorite for fast! Daniel da Silva. New Balance has really surprised me in The duo of SC Trainer v2 and SC Elite v3 worked great for me! I really enjoyed running in them. Honorable mentions goes to Adidas for the innovation and its amazing Adizero Adios Evo 1 and to ASICS for the innovation with the Kayano 30 and Nimbus 25!

New Balance. The tech and shoe updates have been amazing, while the apparel is functional and versatile.

Saucony always delivers good updates each year that work for most runners. New Balance making versatile shoes for training and racing.

On is going in the right direction, getting better and better with their new line of shoes and foam updates.

Brooks continues to amaze me with great shoes for both road and trails. New Balanc e 2. Hoka 3. Nike, New Balance put out my favorite long run and race shoe this year! Honorable mention to Hoka for bringing new foams and ideas to their shoes, I love the Zinal and Mach X and have heard great things about the Rocket X 2.

Tiny Topo is my brand of the year for 3 fantastic road shoes in Cyclone 2, Atmos, and Specter, none with plates and none needed, and for the continued evolution of their trail line. Dynamic underfoot with genuine PEBAX in the mix and always with the best fitting truly anatomical uppers.

adidas finally moved away from over aggressive Adizero shoes with Boston 12, and the beyond bold Prime X 2 Strung and the lightest racer ever in EVO. Supernova Rise finally gave them a modern, more mainstream daily trainer.

ASICS took big risks with their legacy and business vital Nimbus and Kayano trainers and introduced the max max cushioned Superblast and it all worked in the market.

And late in our tests of 5 different Merrell trail shoes have them in an early lead for Saucony and New Balance tie for Overall Run Brand of the Year with four first place votes each with Saucony edging out New Balance at the next level with 2 more honorable mentions.

adidas follows with 3 first place votes with Topo and ASICS tying with two first place votes and 3 honorable mentions each. What races, routes, run discoveries, training methods, challenges of any kind were most significant in for you and what are your goals. Looking forward to running Berlin in September, where so much of my family is from.

My goal is to get my running legs back up to speed, after a mediocre Goals this year are a spring marathon and a first mountain ultra. For I want to take a little break from the Marathon distance and focus on my speed in the first half of the year.

I plan quite a 10k - racing season in March and April and hope to improve on my base-speed by cutting maybe minutes of my 10k time. In my mind I then can build onto this new speed and hopefully chase down another PB during a fall marathon. I can now relax a little bit and stop putting useless pressure on my training, going back to the simple joy of doing sport after having fallen in a rabbit hole with the Ironman thing.

But for now, I need to heal an injury which I hope won't be too serious so that I can enjoy the first goal will be a mountainous triathlon around Annecy Alpsman and I'll probably try the CCC lottery!

In I was really able to dial in my overnight running for very long distances. I also upped my training volume quite a bit and was able to get super fit.

The Boise Trails Challenge was an eye-opener for me as my body responded very well covering a big distance and time M over 3. Perhaps multi-day events are on the horizon for me, but for sure I'm already looking at making a return to Backyard Ultras.

Finding new rail trails outside Boston has made workouts more enjoyable, predictable, albeit with less elevation! Hoping to run a solid time at the Boston Marathon in April. There are really too many great runs and discoveries of new routes on local mountains here at home in Boulder, mountains of Colorado, Utah, Washington, Montana and Wyoming to count.

Whether I return to the marathon and chase down a sub remains to be seen! Planning to do a lot more weight training, cross-training, and plyometrics to try to improve my injury resilience.

Having finished my USATF Level 2 Endurance certification, I've been coaching a bunch of local elites and also couch potatoes. People from all sorts of walks of life.

One of the most important aspects of coaching is the support and life lessons you can teach and learn at the same time. Goals for although this all depends on how my heel will feel : going for an age group victory in Boston, Comrades ultra marathon and the Wanda age group World Championships in Sydney in September, but don't hold me to any of it.

I had possibly my best year competitively speaking in , but was plagued with injury. I limped through the Boston Marathon in April with my first ever achilles tendinitis, possibly caused by too much time downhill skiing and not enough long run buildup on roads.

Then I suffered another injury in another sport: tore my hamstring at the top literally a pain in the butt playing tennis. I had to defer the Berlin Marathon but I went ahead and "ran" the WMM Age Group World Championships at Chicago Marathon at an easy pace rather than a race pace and actually had a blast taking that relaxed approach!

Will work on getting my speed back by adding strength training so as to improve my injury resilience. After my 11th straight Boston in and then the weddings of two of my five kids, I plan to start training more seriously for racing success in a new age group. A busy schedule meant more frequent runs from home in , but I hope to find more variety in mountain peaks, trails, and roads outside of my familiar radius in Daniel Da Silva.

In the Dubai Marathon I ran my marathon PR of , improving about 4 minutes from before. Will focus on shorter distances after my recovery. This year threw me more curveballs than I could swing. After struggling through 2 stress reactions in my femur in , this year was about regaining confidence and trust in my body.

However, I struggled with mono and hormonal imbalances at the start of that forced me to take another step back in my training.

I reduced my intensity and focused on building volume and consistency for the rest of the year. I was signed up for a 50k at the end of this year, and got struck with covid leading into race week. I'm eager to get to starting lines in and looking to line up for a few big races, including a k in the spring.

Cheers to health and learning from experience. Hybrid method will be my focus to improve my marathon times and prevent injuries. For I want to recover speed and gain muscle so a lot of work has to be done for this coming !!!

Running is my off-season cross training, so it's hard for me to mentally push and sign up for races. I truly need a reset after the skimo race season January-April , but I'm also a bit competitive and definitely struggled with the feeling of missing out on great trail events in The contrast was harder to navigate; I ended up comparing myself a lot, especially with road runners, which doesn't really make sense since I train for vertical efforts.

Trail running in technical terrain helped me get over that by bringing my mid back to paying attention to the terrain and the adventure side of trail running. In I'd like to race a short trail distance and feel the same joy that fast solo efforts in the mountains bring me.

Will focus on more speed work this year, and longer tempo runs as I prepare for the Chicago Marathon in Will also run less flat routes in training. By early I should be back running after my knee injury.

Darn, I missed the running but made up for it somewhat with long walks by time in my brace. I hope to remain consistent week in week out with my training at about 35 miles per week as I was most of building back gradually focusing on shorter road races, an Alps trek this summer and my usual fall half marathons.

We know that finding the right shoe size can be tricky! Alternatively, you can measure the length of your foot and add between 1 and 2cm to find the correct insole length. Please note that these widths are intended only as a rough guide. We strongly recommend you measure the width of your feet before deciding which fit is best for you.

Equally you might prefer a wider fit if you are running longer distances or lifting heavy weights. We have graded the fit of all our shoes from 1 to 5 to make it easy for you to find the perfect fitting shoe.

All our shoes are designed with Met-Cradle technology to lock down the mid-foot for a stable hold. Where they differ is in the toe box. Grade 1 represents our closest, most precise fit. At the other end of the scale, Grade 5 has the widest fitting toe box.

We have meticulously studied the foot and its function during the gait cycle and also the interaction between the foot and the terrain.

We have used this knowledge to develop our fitting scale. For technical footwear a good fit is essential to enhance your performance. The lower the number on our scale, the narrower the fit, which ensures minimal internal movement of the foot when running fast on technical terrain.

Want to keep your feet happy on rugged trails? Many runners opt to use small, lightweight gaiters to fend off snow, sand, scree, and other trail debris.

But you can also try this increasingly popular homemade option —just order some fabric and Velcro strips or Shoe Goo, and get in touch with your inner MacGyver. Save yourself some time by starting your post-run shower while still wearing your running clothes, so your apparel and even shoes, if especially muddy get a solid rinse, before hanging them out to dry.

This can reduce the need to run full loads of laundry so frequently after your runs. For wet running shoes, expedite the drying process by removing the footbeds and stuffing the insides of your shoes with balled-up newspaper. No need to purchase a bulky wilderness first-aid kit when you can build your own miniature one from cheap, compact supplies likely already lying around in your medicine cabinet.

An empty pill bottle can make the perfect vessel for your kit. Just fill it with a few bandages, butterfly closures, dressing pads, safety pins, antiseptic wipes, duct tape make a miniature roll around a toothpick , moleskin patches, and medications.

If you live in a climate where you run regularly on snow and ice in the winter, you might want to consider converting a pair of running shoes into a winter-only model.

Ultrarunner Jeff Browning offers a good tutorial here. There are plenty of fancy recovery and self-massage tools out there geared toward runners—but the cheapest, most readily available and most effective one of all is nothing more than a tennis ball.

You can roll your tired arches on top of it, sit on it while doing glute stretches to massage your piriformis, or stand with your back to a wall—and the tennis ball wedged between your back and the wall—to dig deep into tight spots in your neck and shoulders.
