The New Goodr Bike Sunglasses – Product Review

The New Goodr Bike Sunglasses – Product Review

I have a ridiculously huge collection of Goodr brand sunglasses. I can’t help myself. They are cheap ($25) and have SO MANY COLORS! And I am an Ambassador, so I get some perks here and there.

When the new Super Fly bike style glasses were introduced, I thought, “I don’t bike. And that retro style would look goofy on me.” But my wife bikes, so I thought, what the heck, I might as well get them and if I hate them, she can have them. We “share” all of my … er … our … Goodr glasses anyway. 

A few days later, a package from Carl the Flamingo showed up. I hastily opened the box and tried on the new shades. I didn’t hate them! In fact, they look good! I like them a lot. Jen wanted to try them on, since she is the biker. “I think they are too big for my face”. “Oh yes, much too big,” I reassured her as I stashed them next to the door to put/leave in my truck. 

These new Super Flys are lightweigh and comfortable. Even lighter feeling than regular Goodrs. I didn’t weigh them, or look up any info to prove it, since I am lazy, so take it with a grain of salt. 

If you were on the fence about the new style, give them a shot. I am happily surprised and now need to get all of the new colors in this style.

Running Sunglasses Review – Run good, look goodr

Running Sunglasses Review – Run good, look goodr

I am always losing my running sunglasses. Or they fall off my face mid-run and I come close to making an acrobatic catch, tipping them in the air, but never securing them, only to have them crash to the ground, leaving a scratched lens that will drive me nuts every time I wear them thereafter. Replacing my running sunglasses has become a neverending circle. I buy a new pair at each marathon expo that I attend, usually spending around $30 for some “cheap” glasses. The glasses I usually choose are sleek and lightweight. And boring. (more…)

Aftershokz Wireless Running Headphones Review – Safe running while listening to music

Aftershokz Wireless Running Headphones Review – Safe running while listening to music

I enjoy the solitude and sounds of the run. The sound of my feet greeting the road. My rhythmic breathing. The birds chirping. The rustle of the leaves as a skunk approaches my path. The car engine behind me that doesn’t care that I have the right-of-way through the intersection. I prefer to hear these things in time to react accordingly. I am not a fan of skunk-stink or tire tracks on my back. So I keep my ears free of obstruction. No earbuds while running for this guy. (more…)

Eternal Naturally Alkaline Spring Water – How good is your pre-hydration game?

Eternal Naturally Alkaline Spring Water – How good is your pre-hydration game?

I like to think that I have a discerning pallet when it comes to beverages. I can wax poetic about the citrus notes in a west coast IPA, or the earthy undertones in a glass of red wine. When I was sent a case of Eternal Naturally Alkaline Spring Water to test and review, I was at a loss. How do I review water?

It’s … uh … wet.
It has a pretty bottle.
The end?

Surprisingly, though, I have a lot of good things to say about Eternal Naturally Alkaline Spring Water. I enjoyed all twelve one liter bottles that I had the pleasure of trying. (more…)

1st Phorm Review: Taking Running and Fitness to the Next Level. Never Settle

1st Phorm Review: Taking Running and Fitness to the Next Level. Never Settle

I believe certain events happen in life for a reason, and the timing of which can dictate how you move forward. As I was starting to look at my 2016 running goals, I realized that I wanted to take my performance to the next level. And to do that, I need to focus on diet and get my weight down a bit. I have about 10 to 15 pounds I want to shed, in a healthy manner. Right on cue, I received an email from Aaron Summers of 1st Phorm, a diet and supplement company. He had seen some reviews I had written on my blog and wanted to see if we could work together to promote 1st Phorm, while at the same time help me reach my goals. Aaron is a Certified Personal Trainer and a Certified Fitness Nutrition Specialist. Right away, I knew he was someone I could ask questions and not just get a sales pitch as a response. I wanted to find products that work for me and my lifestyle. And he wanted to help me succeed and share my story. The 1st Phorm philosophy really struck a chord with me as well.

“Never Settle!” (more…)
