August 2020 Alyssa Godesky just set the supported FKT for the ADK 46er trail in 3 days, 16 hours and 16 minutes. She and Sarah were the first two women to undertake this route, beginning at 4AM on Monday August 17th. We previewed the “racing” ladies the week before the attempt, so check those two shows out! Though they battled thunderstorms during the attempt, they got relatively lucky Weekly Rundown for August 26, 2020   For me last week I had the honor of supporting friend and amazing athlete and individual Sarah Keyes as she went after the ADK 46r FKT, in virtual head to head fashion with Alyssa Godesky. These two individuals, and their core crews are nothing short of incredible. You have to earn every mile in the Adirondacks, and to be with Eric Eagan was recruited to the best SUNYAC Division 3 school to run track and jump long. The first year, the man who recruited him retired and the program, who won championships for over 20 years, was under new leadership. It was this leadership who instructed Eagan to compete in the triple jump with a broken heel.  That jump destroyed him and he began the first This week we published our multi-tester gear review of the VM Maxx. Ellie caught up with Sarah Keyes and Alyssa Godesky for interviews ahead of their individual go's at the ADK 46'r FKT, going on right now in a race or head to head format. I’m headed there Tuesday to support and capture some film, and for what hopefully will be a great Sarah Keyes is no stranger to the TC Interview series. Having made her first appearance in the early days of the show, we decided to have her back again. Not only has Sarah been nabbing local CRs and climbing mountains, on Monday August 17th, she will begin her longest and hardest FKT yet, the 150ish mile Adirondack 46er. The record is currently held by Ryan Below you'll find a chunk of the YouTube review of the VJ Maxx linked above. In addition to Ian, two other choice reviewers were in on the testing. The first is my teammate, Ben Nephew. Ben is arguably one of the best technical trail runners of the past two decades. For much of that time, he's done wear testing and weighed in on materials and Scott Magee cancelled the biggest family reunion on the east coast. The call to drop Twisted Branch 100k nearly broke him who was ready to hold the 6th running of the event. He wonders if he could have been more creative. Could they have made the race happen? Possibly, but it wouldn’t have been Twisted Branch. Once you run the event, you’ll understand. It’s the volunteers, Just coming through the shop door this morning, two models which I’m really excited to check out, both from Salomon. The first, a pretty wild niche and small production shoe which is the S/Lab Cross, looking more like a design for special forces ninjas who happen to want to jump in a gnarly muddy trail race. It has an integrated speedlace on a hydrophobic kevlar The Sense 4's predecessor, the Sense Pro 3, was designed off the S/Lab Sense 6 which athletes the world-over decided strayed too far from its roots as a trimmed down racing shoe a’la Killian. I was not big fan of the Sense Pro 3 as it felt stiff all around and the lugs felt overly big and tippy on trails. Thus it ended up riding
