The Hoka All Adventure Hat is something I’ve wanted for months. To be honest, it’s also been sold out for what feels like months. I quickly learned that I needed to cover my head and face in the desert. It’s hard to find something breathable that doesn’t make me sweat more. Usually, I am more of a visor person, but the bucket hat trend has intrigued me.
I’ve been so excited for the Atreyu Base Model v2 to come out. Last summer, I ran in the first version. The first version of any shoe can be rough, let alone a brand new running shoe brand. That was not the case with Atreyu, and they wildly impressed me. I felt like they filled a void where running shoes lacked…the lightweight trainer.
Lightweight trainers like the Saucony Kinvara have been around for years, but they are slowly going away in favor of carbon-plated workout shoes. Sometimes you don’t want all of that! Sometimes you want an inexpensive under $100 trainer, and the Atreyu Base Model v2 is just that.
Between reviewing the first version and now, I met one of the Atreyu owners, Mike, at the Believe in the Run event in Baltimore in July 2021. My experiences with the Atreyu owners have always been positive. In fact, I dare say one of the most positive of any brand. It’s easy to support a good product with even better people.
I won’t lie, I’ve wanted an Outdoor Voices Exercise Dress since they came out. Apparently, so does everyone else because they’ve been sold out for months. For whatever reason, I happened to be on the Outdoor Voices website at the right time and found myself having access to a dress.
This post is sponsored by BabbleBoxx on behalf of Superfeet. I was excited to learn that Superfeet recently came out with a new insole: The Superfeet ADAPT Run Insole. As many people know, I’ve worked in the running industry for years. I’ve known about the original Superfeet product for a decade (wow, time flies).
They are designed as comfortable orthotics. The ADAPT Run is a comfort insole, a running insole, and can be used to add a little extra cushion (whether you are healthy or injured). It is not designed to correct anything so you don’t need to worry about it changing your gait.
The Nike Pegasus is the shoe people love to hate. The Nike Pegasus 38 is the 38th version. So yes, it is one of the few shoes Nike has kept around this long. In fact, it’s the oldest running shoe in the running shoe world, for real.
Like many people, the Pegasus was my first ever running shoe. Since then, I’ve run sporadically in it but haven’t in the last few years. The Nike Pegasus 38 is known as “the Peg,” the Nike Zoom Air Pegasus, the Zoom, the Zoom air, the grandma, father time…just kidding, no one calls it the last two things except me.
