Mio Link Heart Rate Monitor Review

Good morning, friends! Last week was spent in Salt Lake City on a work-cation. We went to Outdoor Retailer, the biggest outdoor retail industry trade show around— it’s the one week out of the year where store owners, retail buyers, and big outdoor brands/new entrepreneurs hoping to get their products into stores descend upon Utah.

Not without any frustration, pain, highs, and lows, I’ve been battling some nagging injuries since my 100 at Burning River in July — 7 months ago. It is quite the story… with an ending that’s still being written. I’m not fully 100% yet, but working towards it. Here’s what happened: July 2013 During and…

Goodbye ’13, Hello 2014!

Hello friends! What a crazy holiday season finally behind us! We had a great time spending some days with family/friends in Indianapolis and Cleveland. Most importantly, we had time to RELAX, and hope you did too! I’m going to put a little spin on the 2013 recap, doing it in photos. Looking back through the big events of the year, it was another busy one. How? 1) We ran the Rocky Raccoon ultramarathon (north of…
