Out There in Calgary- Under the radar as a "running store", because it isn't a specialty store, but you'll find Sugoi, Mountain Hardware, NorthFace, Ice Breaker, Salomon, Vasque and many more well-known brands that offer running gear. Plus, I work there so you can't go wrong :)

When running with Rune, who seems to attract spooky wildlife, I've had run-ins with sketchy horses, almost collided with a big-horn sheep, been hot on the trail of a moose we never saw and been stared down from a distance by a grizzly bear. There's really nothing you can do to prepare yourself for a...

The SyncroGuide is indeed a borderline Motion Control shoe, as the company claims it is. PI has employed some unconventional technology to accomplish this, but consider this: What is a motion control shoe? Let's go back to basics because I think a lot of people don't REALLY understand this. A motion...

Anyone in Calgary, we are planning a Beer Marathon this fall! Stay tuned! (8 beers, 42.2k.) So far, it's me, Marc and Rune. Anyone else down??

You're directing the race I'm talking about, Smelcher, you just don't know it yet!! We'll make it 125k in distance just so it's a slap in the face, K-country perhaps? SHWING! We'll give it a super-obvious contrast name, like "Life Race" hahah

Stay tuned for an event on the same day next year that will be way more low-key, but way more bang for your ultra buck.

Am I right to assume that you would wear orthotics in neutral shoes? no. it's a common assumption, and although works for some - some people wear orthotics in stability shoes (and even motion control shoes!) I have very flat feet. I used to wear motion control shoes with my orthotics a few years ag...

True, it was a tough call time-wise, and it seems like there aren't enough longer trail races/ultras here to call for date conflicts, but Fast Trax is definitely worth the trip if you are looking for something longer (50k/50m/100k) Not a good run for me at all, but a great event to support nonethele...

To the thread author: One important point everyone seems to be missing is that orthotics can be made to address more issues than just textbook overpronation. Orthotics can help you overcome such complicated issues as leg-length discrepecies, strength imbalances and foot fatigue. You need to check w...

I am a shoe nerd. I'm full-time in the industry and have been for a while. I definitely haven't heard any evidence to back up the claim that weight loss reduces the need for pronation control. Overpronation is a matter of predisposed biomechanics. Pronation is your foot's way of cushioning and stab...

This race blows, and I will personally never do it. I've heard nothing but negative things, and while a lot of ultrarunners seem content with bad-mouthing the RD while simultaneously supporting his race, I see no reason to participate. My homeslice Rune has a term, "T-shirt race" to describe events ...

"Heelclicker"= a signature move of Rune's that includes him jumping, clicking his heels in the air, and emitting a loud and smelly gas at the same time. My feet weren't clearing more than 2 inches off the ground after about 40k, and somehow Smelcher had the energy to pull off the heel-clicker severa...

It was definitely a memorable run- huge thanks to Rune for doing that with me, it was probably the coolest running-related experience I've had to date! I'm doing Blackfoot in May so it will be cool to see what 100k will be like after some better preparations and some experience at that distance. Som...
