It feels like I’ve had the Brooks Glycerin in my rotation forever. The Brooks Glycerin 19 is a high cushioned neutral shoe. Even with the updates, it rarely changes much. You know, from year to year, it’s going to be about the same.
This year, the Brooks Glycerin 19 is updated with a softer ride and a new outsole configuration. It feels “less clunky” but still high cushioned. Note: Clunky does not mean cushioned, and cushioned does not clunky.
Boathouse Gear has quickly become some of my favorite running gear in 2021. I recently discovered them right around the holidays when they made fun holiday prints. If there is anything I love, it’s themed clothing.
When I discovered the Truckee Running Festival Waddle Ranch Trail Half Marathon, I decided it would be a fun adventure. The thing about trails is no one cares about your time. I could run a 1:40 or a 2:40, and no one would know the terrain and course. My only goal for the Truckee Running Festival Waddle Ranch Trail Half Marathon was to finish and not hurt myself. I didn’t taper or really put a lot of stock in the race. That’s been my mindset for any trail race. Do it. Don’t hurt myself. Have fun.
I won’t lie; the Asics Metaspeed Sky has piqued my interest for a while. It’s no secret Sara Hall has been on fire. One thing I respect about Sara (among so many) is the fact that she always races in Asics even when other professional athletes might run in a different brand over their sponsor.
Anyway, when the Asics Metaspeed Sky came out, I knew I wanted to try it. Unfortunately, it was sold out for weeks. The short review of this is the Asics Metaspeed Sky is the closest carbon-plated shoe to the Nike super shoes. It is the fastest outside of Nike.
