Competitor.com senior producer Mario Fraioli is something of a gear junkie: running shoes, socks, nutrition products, books–you name it and he probably has had it sent to him. Check in each week as he shares the latest running gear and gizmos to come across his desk.
MotivePure Oral Rehydration Formula
You need more than just water to rehydrate. MotivePure is an oral rehydration formula that finds its way into the bloodstream rather quickly. How effective is it? I'll find out this summer!
Motivator Neuro Brain Boosters
This mental energy formula has been sitting at my desk for a few weeks now. It's supposed to enhance mental and physical performance. I'm skeptical of any product that misspells "neuro" on the bottle.
The Little Red Book Of Running
I started flipping through this gem earlier this week. Chock full of practical advice, this new book by Scott Douglas is an easy read and is worth having handy if you're a runner.
Karhu Strong Fulcrum Ride 2
I'll be testing out these bad boys over the next few weeks for Competitor's fall shoe review. With a high heel, thick midsole and not much in the way of overlays, I'm curious to see how these guys Fit, Feel and Ride.
Nutrition products of all sorts find their way to my desk often enough I could probably sustain myself for a week! These drink mixes from Generation UCAN come in handy when I need to fuel for a long run...or if I can't sneak away from my desk for a snack.
Nike Lunarfly 2
Another shoe I'll be reviewing this fall for Competitor Magazine. Featuring a Lunarlon midsole, these pups are pretty light on the feet. Look forward to cranking out some miles in them soon!
