We’re loving Tattly! We think think these professional designer and illustrator created temporary tattoos would be a perfect accessory for your next race, adding a little extra inspiration and motivation to your outfit. All tattoos are available on the Tattly website for $5 to $10.
Smizing is not something that usually comes naturally to me during a race. Either is photographing well, or for that matter, looking anything but double-chinned, sweaty, drooly or graceful. But that’s ok because without my hilariously akward or just plain bad race photos, there would be nothing for you to laugh at today!
We hope you take better photos than us. Send us your akward (or beautiful) races photos at email@example.com
Nike has introduced the Free Gym shoe, a new barefoot shoe designed for a minimalist, high performance feel in the gym or on the yoga mat. While we personally don’t follow the barefoot trend, we do admire the design of the shoe and the non-singular toe compartments—giving this new women’s shoe an actual shoe-like appearance unlike our favorite barefoot running shoe we love to hate, Vibram Five Fingers. The Nike Free Gym Shoe is available from Nike for $110.
October is here and it’s officially time to say goodbye to summer. We bid farewell to our favorite season and it’s glorious warmth, long days and fresh picked fruit knowing we took full advantage of the outdoors and the glorious northwest – never letting a ray of sunshine go by without sharing it with friends and family.
So, goodbye summer, till we meet again or on the other side of the equator.
We’d like to congratulate Chrissie Wellington on her amazing victory at the 2011 Ford Ironman Championships in Kona, Hawaii! Chrissie fell behind during the bike course to Caroline Steffen and went head to head with last years champion, Miranda Carafe on the run course to ultimately come out the victor of the women’s race. Finishing in an absurdly impressive 8:55:08 she also set the record for the second fastest finishing time 0n the course. With her infectious smile, steadfast attitude and enthusiasm for the sport, it’s no wonder this 4-time world champion has inspired women and girls across the globe to jump into the world of bikes, wetsuits and running.
Christopher McDougall’s engaging and hollistic book about barefoot running past and present has held steady on the New York Times best seller’s list for years—sparking passionate debate about running shoes, evolution and feet. The book can also be blamed as the catalyst for thousands of fashion faux pas around the world (we’re looking at you Vibram wearers).
McDougall makes a convincing case for liberating your toes, getting back to your evolutionary roots and setting your soul free from running shoes. An ultrarunner himself, McDougall became curious about the connection between injury, pain, modern running shoes and the mysterious running tribe of Mexico – the Tarahumara Indians. We have to admit, we’ve thrown off the running shoes on more than one occasion and it’s felt pretty darn good.
The book has recently been released in paperback, pick up a copy here.
