Re: What can you tell me about minimalist shoes?

I had been running in the Mizuno Ronin 3s, and LOVED them. However, coming back from the injury the PT actually sent me to see Pete to find a "more than one Cinderella shoe" solution. Pete set me up with the Brooks PureFlow, and the 4mm drop combined with cushioning is working really well ...

Re: Canadian Cartel Icebreaker Sale

Email alert just went out: Last Day! More Sizes and new product added! I don't see anything new in the women's section. :/ Nor did I. Only difference was sock sizes that had sold out last week are once again available. I can't tell if Men's has new items, as I didn't look in said section last week!

Re: David's Tea

Has anyone tried Hot Lips? Does it have any mint flavour to it, or just cinnamon/spice? I've never tried it - but it's on my "to try" list. According to various reviews, it tastes like cinnamon hearts - which leads me to believe no mint flavouring. If no maniacs have tried, perhaps post t...

Nope - the deal is on for another 3 days. Only downfall is many sizes have sold out. See here: https://www.canadiancartel.com/

Re: Canadian Cartel Icebreaker Sale

I've ordered from Canadian Cartel (they did a huge Moving Comfort blowout in the summer). Great prices, and shipping is free if you exceed $75. Only catch is to watch the "estimated delivery" underneath the Add to Cart option - for some items, it may takes weeks for delivery. The ICEBREAKE...

Re: So...the UA bra...what say you?

Tried on the UA colour coded bra yesterday, and the lack of strap adjustment was a show stopper for me. However, it looked like the D/DD versions are different. They don't have a pull-over racer, instead offer adjustable straps. For the "blessed" ladies, it might be worth checking out :D

I ordered the Advent Calendar. Derek and I agreed we'd split it - since many flavours I've tried, but he has not.

I also noticed they have "Christmas Crackers" - is this new? https://www.davidstea.com/holiday-crackers-with-tea?&TF=0C88C9665439&DEID=

I've gone back to the Shock Absorber Run Bra and the Moving Comfort Juno this fall, as Sugoi stopped making the RSR that I liked. However, I would love to hear feedback on the UA bras, as they go on sale much more often.

RA - you made a really good point. Derek thinks the store might not have steeped Cocomint enough for his taste preference. Thus the weak/lacking aspect. He might pick up enough to make a couple cups, and try steeping for a lot longer. Dr.S - I just looked at the invoice from the teas Derek brought h...

Re: David's Tea

I can't remember now which tea it was (one that I didn't buy) but the ingredient list mentioned that it contained dairy, even though it was a flavour that I never would have thought would contain dairy. For those who don't do dairy, watch out for it sneaking into teas in weird ways. Carrot Cake is ...
