What I've Tried: Brubeck Body Guard 3D Pro

As someone who pretty much lives in spandex, I've become quite particular about what I wear when I'm working out.  Gear has to be comfortable, functional and it has to look good.  Look good, feel good, go fast, right?

I recently had the opportunity to test out some products from Brubeck Body Guard. Brubeck is a Polish company and their production facility is located in a town called Wola, that is...

The Runner's Choice Foot Oil - Review

Now that I'm back in the swing of regular running, my feet have been taking a beat down once again. They're generally sore and usually quite tired after a run.  I usually roll them out with an accuball massage ball and that helps but sometimes they need a bit more TLC.

When Trusted Health products asked me if I'd like to try The Runner's Choice Foot Oil, I checked out the list of ingredients as...

Running to a Faster Beat - New Balance Fresh Foam Zante Review + A Contest!

Disclaimer:  I was provided a pair of Fresh Foam Zantes in exchange for an honest review.  I did not receive any other compensation.  All opinions are my own.

I run with music all the time. The only exception is when I'm racing in a triathlon as it's not allowed. Music definitely fuels my workouts. 99.9% of the music on my running playlists is faster paced music. Since I'm working on my running...

Running Strong Book Review

This book could not have come to me at a better time.  Those of you that read along know I've been struggling with knee problems for the last year.  They finally seem to be getting better but not without a lot of trial and error.  So when Runner's World gave me the opportunity to review Dr. Jordan Metzl's Running Strong, I took it.

Runner's World sent me a digital copy to review but I am going to...

Recovery: How to #FuelYourBetter

The opportunity to review this product couldn't have come at a better time. I was heading into a huge build for IM Luxembourg 70.3 and figured I was going to need all the help I could get to recover quickly. I normally just use protein powder in my post workout...

Recovery, It's Part of the Program: Barefooters Review

When I first started running, I just went out and ran, pretty much every day. I wasn't running far, usually about 4-5km a day. I ran that same 5km from Monday to Friday and I'd take the weekends off. That was my little routine. The weekends were my recovery time. Once I started doing longer distances, I found that I needed to start incorporating things like massage into my routine to help me...

My #OneChange for 2014: Taming the Weekend Splurger with Vega One

Disclaimer:  As a Sweat Pink Ambassador, I was given the opportunity to review this product through Fit Approach in exchange for an honest review.  

I'll be the first to admit it, I function much better when I have some semblance of structure or routine in my life. As stressful as my 9-5 (ish) job can be, it provides the structure that I base the rest of my life around. It kind of keeps me sane and...

Going Hard With GU: Roctane & GU Brew Recovery Review

Disclaimer:  I was given these products from Running Free in exchange for a review as part of my Team Running Free sponsorship.

Those of you that read along know just how much I put my body through on a regular basis. I raced 13 races this year with number 14 happening in December. Almost all of those races were over an hour and a half in duration. That means I go through a whole lot of fuel both...
