Benefits of Collagen

There are very few supplements I see noticeable changes when I use, but I do see the benefits of Collagen when I regularly use it in my diet. 
Throughout the years, I’ve tried several brands of collagen. Some are better than others. For the most part, I have genuinely found I’ve seen the benefits of collagen most noticeably in my hair, skin, and nails.

How Are You Doing? No Really.

How are you doing?

The phrase how are you doing often comes with a quick: I’m fine, thanks, how are you. There are very people we trust to go into detail when we are “not doing fine.”

How many people can you trust with a complete mind dump: I’m not doing great?

Or heck trust to say more than an “I’m fine thanks.”

To be transparent, I’ve been stewing on this post for a while. I’ve written bits and pieces of blog posts, but they haven’t come together. I can’t quite say this blog post is “much better.”

The post itself can be categorized into different parts:

Hoka Torrent 2 Shoe Review

Hoka One One Torrent 2 Shoe Review

Since moving out to California, I’ve gotten more into trail running, which is why I went with the Hoka Torrent 2. It isn’t because suddenly I love trails but because the trails are close by and I can run trails whenever I want. In New Jersey, I had to drive anywhere between 1-2 hours to get a long run on trails. Now I can drive 10 minutes or even run from my house.

With that, I needed a trail shoe. I’ve heard the Hoka Torrent 2 is a good option, so I decided to try that out. It’s a lot more firm than many trails shoes.  Many people have suggested the best use of the Hoka Torrent 2 is for racing.
