Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought a pair of these in 25mm width and put them on my bike replacing my old pair of Continental Grand Prix 4000 S Tire in the 23mm width. Over 2000 miles on the old pair. Since I don't race often the 25mm better suite my riding style of weekend warrior and century rides. I keep them inflated to almost max PSI, which keeps them rolling FAST. They grip great for me when I am flying down a canyon at 50mph+. I'll buy another set for sure once I wear down my current pair.

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
Fit: True to size

Bought these as a gift for Dad going on a High Adventure Backpacking trip. His feedback is that the socks are great for his feet. They wick well keeping his feet dry and free of blisters. Not to mention the color pattern takes him back to his early days of hiking.

I walk a minimum of 15 miles a day at work. I need a pair of pants that can keep up with me and not wear out every few months. KUHL has been the one company that has kept up with my busy work life. The tough cotton on the Rydr is gonna last me a long, long time.

First bought little cheap backpacks thinking that the kids (a 5 year old boy and a 5 year old girl) would use them for the year and yes they would get torn up a bit, but still be useable. No such luck, the backpacks didn't last 1 month.

Found these backpacks from Marmot and while not as cheap they are very durable and will easily last the rest of the school year and probably into the next.

How to Feed the BEAST Within

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Once a full time athlete training for 8+ hours a day I was constantly tired in and out of the sporting arena. I got my hands on this breakthrough book from Dr. Lim and Dr. Biju, my energy and performance levels changed forever. Gone are the days of feeling bloated and heavy with food. This book is not just for the hardcore athlete looking to change the way they train, the simple and clean food that is offered in this food bible are also for the common man. Don't take my words for it, buy this bible yourself and feed on clean performance fuel!!!

Pictured is my favorite go to 5+ hour food recipe (Honey Ginger Chicken Wraps). I made this for my entire RAGNAR team, and it was more than enough energy to sustain us over the 30 hour race.

Love these compression tights. I wear these after a hard workout, on rest days, or traveling across the country. It keeps the blood flowing and the lactic acid away, helping me to recover faster and keep pushing myself in the next workout. I am 5' 11" 160lbs. 33" waist/inseam. I bought the medium size and the fit is great!!!
