  • Review: SKORA Core

    Thanks goes out to the Rebuilt Runner for his recent review of Core.

    I ran on trails, roads, and grass so I got a good cross-section of how the Core handles on various terrain. They don't have deep tread so when I pulled them out of the box I was wary about how well they would grip the trails, but in practice they did a great job.

  • The Awesome Generation

    There is a recent article making the rounds in the running community:

    The Slowest Generation: Younger Athletes Are Racing With Less Concern About Time

    The author, Kevin Helliker, goes as far as to say, "But to some observers, that change contributed to a growing embrace of mediocrity."

    He quotes a statistic that states in the last 31 years the median men's marathon finishing time has increased by 44 minutes!

    Now, I completely disagree with mediocrity increasing with the increasing marathon ...
