Spring Endurance Lifestyle Essentials


If you are like most endurance athletes you are ramping up your outdoor training now.  No more rides on the bike trainer or runs on the treadmill (dreadmill).  We found a few things that can make your Spring time training and active lifestyle a little better.

ECOTHS Bentley shirt is a comfortable button down short sleeve shirt that is terrific for the recovery times after a long hot training day on the run or bike.  The styling is unique and still has the classic feel that you want.  This nice collared  shirt really looks great.  ECOTHS makes you feel good wearing this clothing because they donate meals to food banks with every purchase.  So while you are chowing down on your recovery meal you can fell better about wearing this nice shirt.  http://www.ecoths.com

Bentley Shirt - Otter

Although I race most TRI events sock less it is always nice to have a good sock for training, active recovery, and compression.   I always wear socks trail running, and  FEETURES socks are very impressive.  Especially for a little warmth on cooler days.  These socks deserve a serious look.   With subtle compression on the bottom of the sock they hug your foot with each step. The FEETURES Ultra Merino is excellent for trail running.  FEETURES offers the full range of socks like the no show run (see cover photo)  and a fantastic ski/ride sock for the winter.  I have tried a lot of socks and FEETURES really has something different.  The socks are smooth almost silky.  This smooth feel makes for an incredible running experience.  http://feeturesrunning.com


Life n Soul, BM101 Water Resistant Speaker lets you take your tunes with you.  This small bluetooth speaker is a great way to have music without headphones.  Strap the speaker to your bike or put it in your hydration vest.  Because it is so small you can tuck it away and not even notice the extra weight.  The sound is surprisingly crisp and clear.  Because it is water resistant you can take this with you in varying conditions.  The elastic strap enables easy fastening to handle bars, top tubes, shoulder straps, or belts.  Pretty durable with a silicone exterior.  This speaker is easy to setup with your bluetooth device.  http://lifensoul.com


MOJI makes a line of great massage products.  These massage tools are amazing.  They melt away tight sore muscles in feet and legs!  They work well for back and shoulders also.  MOJI just updated the already amazing tools with a light weight option.  The MOJI products now offer the same relief with larger balls that are not steel but plastic instead.  It is a terrific update and this NEW Foot Massager is from heaven!  It has a no slip grip on the bottom so it stays well on carpet or smoother hard surfaces.  It feels really good on sore long distance running feet.  http://www.gomoji.com/


HEADSWEATS makes the best sports visors on the market.  I have worn them for years but was hesitant to try the new trucker hat thinking it would be bulky or irritating.  I also thought it would only be good for post event or a hike or walk.  I was dead wrong.  This has become my new favorite hat for long morning runs.  The hat is breathable and comfortable and sits very smooth with no pinch spots or marks on the forehead.  The hat stays where it is supposed to not slipping around.  The headband inside is terry cloth that keeps it breathable and super comfortable.  If it is really hot I still reach for the HEADSWEAT visor but this Trucker Hat needs to be in your quiver.  http://www.headsweats.com/headsweats-trucker-hat-sublimated-red
