Take A Call - Through Your Bike Helmet

Take A Call - Through Your Bike Helmet

My boyfriend does a lot of training by himself.  As he leaves our place to bike down the narrow, winding country road that leads to the highway, I sometimes reflect on the ideal piece of bike gear that would magically know if he got in trouble and let me (or possibly more useful, an ambulance) come to his aid immediately.  And now someone has gone and invented it!

Cancelled... Now What??

Cancelled... Now What??

Josh Arthur is sitting at the airport when he gets the email: ‘The Angels Staircase 35/60k in Carleton WA has been cancelled’, (for the 2nd year in a row) due to wildfires. One of the races in the US Skyrunning series, of which, Josh is leading in points; it was an important race for him...

Training with Kids

Training with Kids

The boys and I are squeezing in a  four minute Tabata training session (well, I am, they are my "drill sergeants"). My husband is away, and we have 20 minutes before we have to leave for soccer practice.

Beyond Spec

Beyond Spec

We like to define things, to give them purpose. Chairs are for sitting in, not standing on (you might fall off). Steak knives are for, well, cutting steak... not cutting kindling. In terms of outdoor gear this same principle holds true, but with the added element that the higher the price tag of the item the narrower it's purported scope of usefulness.

Oakley Takes it to the Track

Oakley Takes it to the Track

Horizontal and riding a fixie on a 42 degree angled wooden track, desperately trying to avoid looking like a swerving, oddly shaped bag of spandex, is not how I imagined trying out Oakley's new sunglasses. Usually company's just email a notice and then send product to test on our local trails. But that's not Oakley's style (#liveyours).

The Unexpected Visitor Test

The Unexpected Visitor Test

There are lots of metrics of happiness out there. Some are pretty academic--Harvard Medical School or well funded international think-tank type stuff. But I prefer the more informal tests, like the "unexpected visitor survey", which just might be one of the best metrics of happiness there is.

Trails That Aren't Really Trails: Hiking Asia

At home in Canada we're always looking for a new trail to mountain bike, to trail run, or just to get out and explore nature. When we're adventure racing, the best part...
