Head Unisex Digital Sport Running Gloves
(5)
These are not made for Alaskan trekking in winter, but they are great fall-winter-spring gloves for running. The index finger has the electronic device pad so you can use a touch s[...]
Vibram KMD Sport LS

I love my Vibrams. Back when I wore regular "high heeled" running shoes, I had to replace them frequently. With Vibrams, there is no cushioning that becomes worn out or compacted. [...]

Ironman World Championship
After so many years of chasing Kona, it seemed to blow by in the blink of an eye. It was definitely a special and an iconic race, but I think for me the thing that made it so much [...]

  • Old and Creaky

    When I was in my mid 40's, I started feeling creaky. I thought to myself that I was too young to be old, so I decided to start getting active. I became a fair weather runner.

So I bought an old 3 speed Schwinn off Craigs List and we started going for bike rides on the local bike trails. Eventually I was riding by m[...]

  • My First Triathlon (and my Daughter's Third)

    Note: This race report was from my first triathlon about a year ago. I just completed this same triathlon last weekend (as did my daughter) with significantly better results. Since this first triathlon, I’ve gone hardcore into the sport. I train 6-8 hours a week, completed 3 other tri’s last year, and have [...]

  • First Tri: Don't Fall Off Your Bike

  • First IM: Racing after breaking a toe

    Hello, my name is Corey Pesson aka CPesson and this is my journey and story. It all started about three years ago when several friends talked me into getting a road bike and start training and racing. After doing so, it wasn’t very long I was asked to do my first sprint triathlon. Now although it was a bit of a s[...]
