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

https://youtu.be/h0tBjpi0aqE Imagine this, you're at the start line of a race ready to have some fun on a beautiful sunny day. Suddenly, your worst racing nightmares have come true! You've forgotten your shoes! They simply didn't make it into your race bag, your kid borrowed them, your cat ate them. Point is, they aren't on your feet and the gun is about to go off. What

What we love about Amelia is her

Elisabeth recently completed her first 50 mile on the Cayuga Trails course, so no easy trail or road ultra for her! This race meant so much to Elisabeth, and we get into it deep during this episode. We talk

https://youtu.be/geIwQWYXVGU De'Vang Patel has been around the mountain a time or two. His favorite race happens to be the gnarly Manitous Revenge, a 54 mile race that runs like a 100 miler. He's also competed in the tough HURT 100 and Eastern States 100, because flat, runnable courses just don't appeal to him. De'Vang runs for Red Newt Racing and Mountain Peak Fitness, but still lends
