CR: Achilles, compression and foam rolling!

On Sunday, I participated in two chats…the #runchat and the #RunatCan chat. The former has a much larger participation level (with 32k followers of the handle vs 1700 for the latter) so there are more discussons, more opinions to be shared and more ideas to be discovered! BUT that does not mean #RunAtCan is not…

CR: Not “Shokz’ed” by this #Bibchat

Over the past few weeks, I have been blitzing my readers with messages about AfterShokz Trekz Titanium Headphones (and for one last time, save 20% with code BIBRAVE at their website) as part of a testing of the product with Bibrave – I am am ambassador which allows me to test new products from time…

Raving about Handhelds!

Yesterday, I had a feeling that I would miss the latest Bibrave chat and that feeling was in my calves – they happened to hurt as I told Julia, my go to person with Bibrave, that I would be late to the Bibchat. Well, I missed the chat entirely and guess what happened! I pulled…

CR: Found my next goal…an Ultra?

A while back, I across the following quote somewhere (and have no idea who said it btw) “Whatever you choose, you might as well enjoy it. It is your choice.” My choice when running more often than not is the “open road” versus the trail. Why? Because simply I don’t live near trails and Boston,…

Chat Recap: Raving about Gear!

Let’s start with a question that has almost certainly hit close to home with all of us: Have you had a situation where your gear let you down? Last night, on the latest installment of BibRave’s #Bibchat, such a question was considered and I will add, by a large audience to boot! (You can get…

Chat Recap: Summer Runnin’ and Rave!

Will Smith released “Summertime” back when I was in high school and to this day, the song triggers memories of my youth; From hanging out at the local pizza place to driving up and down the streets of my hometown looking for friends and (of course) memories of relationships that never panned out (I was…

Chat Wrap: Look vs Fit

It is a busy week for me, both from a running perspective but also on a professional level so last night’s @BibRave #Bibchat was somewhat of a struggle (since I was just simply tired). But I powered through and tried to contribute. The topic was focused around gear and how look and functionality come into…

Chat Wrap: Raving about running

T-minus 10 days till my first marathon! It is officially the pre game show now for me as I taper down and get ready for 26.2 miles of the Maine Coast. I will admit that training over the past few months has been hard but in April I ran a new monthly high of 140…

Recapping the Chat…Raving about Running!

Ever feel like life is moving to fast? Lately I have planned on participating in the various running related chats on my feed but have been late to the party each time! I missed the #runchat on Sunday which was sponsored by Garmin which happens to be my watch of choice and tonight I almost…

Recapping the Chat…All about Compression!

Last week I posted my first “Chat recap” with a “disclaimer” that such notes might or might not be a regular occurrence. Well, with this post today, the “chat recap” has become a regular occurance! (At least for today). Anyhow, last night was another #runchat featuring @Procompression and just in case you have not figured…

Recapping the Chat…Gear, Challenges and Insights

   Welcome everybody to the first chat recap! Now I can’t say I will continue to post such each time there is a #runchat, #bibchat, #bqchat, #racechat or alike, but tonight I will share some of my thoughts brief of the two chats I participated in: Fitfams’s #racechat and BQChat’s chat by the same name. …
