Stephen's Bio

I have been a ultra distance trail runner since the late 90's after running in the Boston road scene for 20 years before that. My main event every year is the Hardrock Hundred in SW Colorado.

I am an original member of the Wasatch Speedgoat Mountain Racing Team with 26 other avid mountain racing team mates. Backcountry has helped me to be able to get the equipment I need to stay healthy and in the top tier of my age group.

That photo is somewhere on the Green Mountain section of the 2011 Hardrock Hundred Endurance Run.

2 stars for not recommended...for me! I know many runners love these shoes and I had to give them a try, but they are just not for or my feet. hey felt like ballet slippers and I would not make it through Hardrock 100 with these minimalist shoes. Also I found the support wasn't enough, I was pronating really bad...and I wear on the roads the Saucony Kinvaras, which are quite minimal, but seem to be more stable.
I'll stick with my higher heeled Montrails, which I ordered after returning these ;-)

This fuel is great, in a blog post once I called it rocket fuel.

What I like most about this gel is the consistency, it's more like water than a gel, the flavor is somewhat sweet, but not gagging sweet...I also like the fact that I'm not only getting calories, but electrolytes and amino acids while consuming it. One flask is about equivalent to 4 gels, so you can carry it in your hand and take a small chug every 30-40 minutes. Try it, you'll like it!

This is one of my go to shoes to wear when I "have" to train on harder surfaces. They are comfortable right out of the box and the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is the found the forefoot area a little narrow...but I have a really wide forefoot from smashing them down for 37 years! ;-) I have over 200 miles on my pair and they have plenty of months left to go before I retire them.

This jacket has been my go to to wear when I know I'm going to be in the mountains in inclement weather. It's somewhat waterproof (I wouldn't want a waterproof jacket), has pit zips, a nice hood with easy to use pull cords and is extremely packable. It doesn't pack fist size, but a fist sized jacket just won't give me the protection I need when up on a 14'er during a snowstorm.

As a regular wearer of the Crosslite, I found these shoes to be a little too much for my feet. They are higher from the ground, thus much more cushioned, if you like that. Yet, the cushion isn't so much that you don't feel low to the trail. These shoes fit a little small/tight, so up your size by a half size.
