Shoes, Shoes, Shoes!
Competitor's Mario Fraioli is serious about running shoes! You'll never know what styles you'll find in the trunk of his car on any given morning.
The weather is warming up and if you're a woman, a good wicking sports bra is a must. Check out this review to see what styles are hot this year.
So Hot You're Cool
This long-sleeved technical jersey from HH was put to the test throughout the spring. Fits great (no shoulder seams) and it's just the right weight for cool-weather runs, like summer mornings in the high country. Helly Hansen Pace Jersey, $70
High and Dry
Seriously, for a while it seemed like the rain would never stop pouring down on McCall, Idaho. But, after a wet spring, the mountain trails are dry and the living is good. Jessie Ward makes up for lost time. Photo: Kurt Hoy

Up And Down And Dirty

Sunscreen sales are largely a matter of marketing and packaging. But, we tried Scape's 50+ (in the Utah desert, no less), and it really works. It's more paint-like than greasy, and it absolutely won't run.
Trying To Be A Triathlete
