Make your music run with you: TrailMix Pro App Review

Make your music run with you: TrailMix Pro App Review

Since high school, I’ve run to stay fit. At that time it was more just because we were forced to run in gym class but I liked it all the same. One thing I noticed quickly was music changed the pace of my running. Getting into a good fast song, I would pick up my […]

Running on Water: Hi-Tec Infinity HPi Trail Runner Review

Running on Water: Hi-Tec Infinity HPi Trail Runner Review

When I got my pair of Infinity HPi Trail Runners from Hi-Tec I have to say I was a little skeptical. I had been a staunch fan of my Salomon Wings when I was running with them. Unfortunately in a bid to make the ultimate trail shoe they scrapped the Wings and made the CrossMax’s. […]
