You’ve been warned: The Mizuno Wave Rider 25 has undergone significant changes since the previous version. Is it bad? No.
Is it different? Yes.
Are these the updates that usually cause Mizuno fans to panic? Yes. The Mizuno Wave Rider 25 is updated with the softer full-length Erezy Foam midsole. Plus, it’s more flexible. Personally, I think it’s felt great.
Recently I tried the Tracksmith Fall Gear. I never anticipated needing cold-weather gear in the desert. I mean, truthfully, I didn’t know anything about the climate and assumed it would just be hot all of the time. Boy, was I wrong, and we are already down in the low 30s on some mornings.
I wrote about my first Tracksmith apparel here. Oddly enough, it’s still one of the most viewed posts on the blog.
On the way home from Santa Barbara, I stopped at Beeps Diner in Simi Valley. I had high hopes because on the website and by photos, Beeps looked like a stereotypical old-school diner. I decided to order takeout since I was on the road and didn’t want to spend too much time there. Sadly, I still ended up spending a lot of time at the diner.
I’ve been waiting for the Hoka Bondi X for what feels like whenever. When I first found out Hoka was making a carbon plated Bondi, I was like…why? What is the point? But after thinking about it, it makes sense. The Bondi is one of the stiffest and most rigid shoes out there. But some people need or want more rigidness than even the regular Bondi.
The carbon plate in the Hoka Bondi X provides that. I think we will see a wide variety of people liking this shoe. We will see people who obviously want to run fast with a carbon plate but also people who want “the stiffest shoe out there” because they are on their feet for so long.
In case it wasn’t obvious, Hoka is also keeping the regular Bondi 7. So now people will have the option of the Hoka Bondi X or the Hoka Bondi 7.
-The Crash 2.0 Polartec tights and Crash 2.0 jacket are the winter essentials I didn’t know I needed. When I moved to the high desert, I was excited to “not deal with winter again,” but boy was I wrong, and I found myself running in 30-degree mornings in October, and it only gets colder from there.
What the heck!? Not just cold, but it’s also windy. So I’ve been looking for warm weather gear that also blocks the wind and keeps me warm. That’s how I discovered both the Title Nine Crash Polartec 2.0 Tights and Crash Polartec 2.0 Jacket.
