The new line up of Hoka OneOne Running Shoes are live and ready for you to FLY! I just ran the Antelope Island 50 in the EVO...sweet shoe, a little stiffer then the Bondi but all the cushion with a little snugger fit. Evo runs a little large but has a second insole to fill foot volume in the shoe!

As my season starts out slow due to the heavy snow pack in Utah, I’ll use this race to launch my season which goes off now until October.. Oil Creek 100. The ascents all look runnable with long fast downhills, sounds like a good race to work on leg speed! Look forward to running with Jodie Chase, Chris Boyack and old team mate Tim Long. How could I forget old friend and long time running colleague Todd Salazar.
Each year the American Hiking Society celebrates National Trails Day to inspire public and outdoor enthusiast to seek out their favorite trail to discover, learn about, educate and work on trail projects throughout the country. It’s great to see the movement as U.S. Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar has announced the designation of 31 new National Recreation Trails across 15 states. The new trails will add more than 716 miles to the National Trails System, increasing its total size by nearly 6 percent.

Here’s a sweet ride with a ton of cushion and large toe box the Wildcat has become one of my favorite La Sportiva Trail Shoes. I ran my last two 100 milers in the Wildcats, the Wasatch 100 and Oil Creek 100. The shoe it self does weighs a little more then the Fireblades and is a little bulkier but has a killer traction( FriXion® X-Axis rubber outsole ) system that gives you a lot of confidence to bomb the technical muddy downhills. The wildcat is a higher profile shoe but surprisingly I never role my ankle in the toughest terrain, no blisters with the Wildcats…by La Sportiva
