So you’ve just come back from a run, taken your shoes and pack off, and put them in the sun to dry. The next day you go to grab them and sure enough they are dry, but they also reek. The stench of miles and miles of sweat, mud, gunk, and grime tends to cling and embed itself into the fabric of all our favorite gear. Well, those days are behind us. 2Toms has crated Stink Free Shoe and Gear Spray to eliminate the odors that cause us to curl up our nose, hold our breath, and say a little prayer as we wait for ourselves to “acclimate” to the very stench we ourselves were responsible for creating.

Disney Lover Runners

As someone who has been to Disney World numerous times and has an affinity to breaking out into movie soundtracks at any given moment I am the perfect demographic for runDisney events. Robert, Andy and I ran marathon weekend two years ago and since then I have been trying to figure out who I can convince to go run a different race weekend there with me. This post isn’t exactly about runDisney and its events though- its about two companies I wish I had known about before running the two days of the Goofy Challenge for Disney workout apparel and registration simplicity.

Blisters, nobody likes them, yet everyone seems to get them at some point in their running journey. Many have written them off as a necessary evil with nothing to be done except suffer through them until they callous over. With the weather warming up and the sweat pouring down, wet feet are almost a given. Wet feet are a haven for blisters as the skin dampens and creates a prime area for blisters to form. The logical solution is to try and find a way to keep your feet dry. But dry feet aren’t enough to prevent all blisters. In fact, dry unprotected feet can be just as bad as they create a friction zone where the shoe rubs the skin and forms a blister. So what are we runners to do about this conundrum? Get our feet wet and we get blisters. Keep our feet dry and we get blisters. Enter 2Toms Blister Shield, a product that can help keep your feet dry and simultaneously reduce friction, keeping hot spots at bay.

When it comes to running and training (for any event of any distance), most people know that they need to put in the mileage to achieve their goals. They need to wake up early and lace up their shoes or find the energy to get out the door after a long day at work. Another key part that many people often overlook (and I myself am very guilty of this as well) is putting in the proper work AFTER the run. I’m talking about stretching. There are several key muscle groups within the leg and foot that help propel us through our athletic pursuits. These muscles need to be maintained and cared for if we expect them to keep up with the rigors we put them through during our training. Medi-Dyne has just the product to make sure you not only give these muscles the attention they need, but that you do so effectively and efficiently as well.  Continue reading

Aftershokz Trekz Titanium Bone Conduction Headphones Review

Two years ago I discovered my affinity for podcasts. On a lengthy road trip, Abigail and I cranked through the first season of Serial around Thanksgiving. On our recent move to Chattanooga, I discovered another audio drama (We’re Alive – a zombie apocalypse survival story with huge production value that I highly recommend if you are into that) that engrossed me and left me wanting more. I slowly began to listen to less radio and more podcasts on my daily commute to and from work.

Chafing. Blisters. Hot spots.  They happen to everyone. Nobody likes them and everyone tries to find the best way to prevent them. Finding an effective product that keeps blisters, bloody nipples, and “chub rub” of the thighs at bay while being non-greasy, long-lasting, and convenient is more difficult than it sounds. I’m here to tell you that your search is over. 2Toms, a division of Medi-Dyne, has created quite possibly one of the best anti chafing products products I have ever found.
