SPIbelt Endurance Series Review

Tuesday, 16 September 2014 by

When I started running in September 2012. I just ran. I didn’t take anything with me, I didn’t have my phone, GPS or iPod. I ran out the door and asked my husband to come and get me after 30 minutes. We drove the car back along my route to see how far it was.

Ultimate Direction (Australian Distributor Injinji Performace Products) kindly provided me with one of their Jenny Jurek collection hydration packs called the Ultravesta to review.

Knuckle Lights Review

Tuesday, 02 September 2014 by

Let’s face it, not all of us can schedule our runs during daylight hours. With life getting busier by the minute, there’s going to be some times that we need to get out before or after the sun has risen to get those miles in. Some of us even prefer it that way! There’s an

Quest Nutrition Review

Monday, 25 August 2014 by

Quest bars, where the HECK have you been all my life? Seriously? If I knew about Quest Bars I would have taken up running/working out sooner, just so I had a valid excuse to eat them! The samples Quest sent me are now a sad pile of wrappers leaving me to reminisce and long for

CEP Compression Socks Review

Monday, 25 August 2014 by

When CEP sent me a couple of pairs of their socks to test out and review I had already started thinking how I was going to write about their product even before I had worn them. Who is really going to want to read several hundred words about socks? I mean, A sock is a
