Diary Entry: Going Through The Shaving and Waxing Process For Your First Triathlon

Believe it or not, one of the most common questions I was asked when I told people I was training for a triathlon was are you going to shave?

Shoe Review: New Balance Fresh Foam Zante

New Balance has always been a big player in the running game. You know, one of those companies that people stay loyal to forever even if the shoes didn't always look the best. That being said, they have definitely turned a corner this past year on the styling front to convert those non-believers and our die-hard testers were curious to find out if just like the Boracay we tested, the ...
