Dead Plantronics Backbeat Fit

Well, this ain’t good. I had been enjoying my Plantronics Backbeat Fit earphones during my runs, but now they don’t turn on. The battery will charge (the LED shows the charging progress), but pushing the power button does nothing. Sadly, this seems to be a recurring problems based on other complaints. I don’t remember exactly […]

My Second iPhone 7 Accessory Purchased

So I didn’t think the missing headphone jack of the iPhone 7 was going to be a big thing. Apple does include a Lightning to minijack adapter with the iPhone 7. Even then, I’m looking at getting Griffin’s iTrip Clip. At $20, this small device “bluetooth-ifies” regular headphones. Sure you gotta charge it, but this […]

Run Run Hoka One One

Took my new, discounted Hoka One One Mafate Speed for a test run where I learned a thing or two about this running shoe. Like I mentioned before, I only recently learned of the Hoka line and its super cushioned ride. I began to see this brand more in the mainstream, even sold at Nordstrom […]

Back to the Structures

Not so long ago, I declared Nike’s LunarEclipse my running shoe of choice. That didn’t last long. After a painful stint with Nike LunarGlide 4 and seeing parallels with the latest LunarEclipse 4, I went with the Zoom Structure 17. Here’s the longer story… The Zoom Structures, LunarEclipses, and LunarGlides are part of Nike’s stability […]

Nike Zoom Wildhorse Reviewed

I submitted my mini review to Zappos for my recent purchase of the Nike Zoom Wildhorse, and it goes like this: Lightweight and great looking but very snug. After a few wears and runs, the shoe still feels tight. It’s okay for short runs, but I’m not sure if the snugness will affect longer runs. […]

Learning About Heel-Toe Drop for Shoes

With Nike’s recent Terra trail running line, the Swoosh is emphasizing the 4 mm differential between the toe and heel. I’ve never seen this type of detail before in typical Nike product information. So what’s with this? Here is some useful information I found on this subject. Heel-Toe Drop or Offset: What Does it Mean […]

Forget the Fear, It’s About the Trail

As in sports, you need to have a short memory. Win or lose, forget about it and move on to the next challenge. So I lost out on getting an Air Jordan Fear pack shoe, but that’s so this morning. I’ve already forgotten about the fear and moved on to a next potential win with […]

The Best Nike LunarEclipse

The heritage of Nike’s LunarEclipse running shoe dates back only three generations, but I must say that the latest LunarEclipse 3 is the best one to date. Ha, that’s an easy conclusion with so few models. But I have all three LunarEclipses, and the LunarEclipse 3 continues to improve, fixing problems in previous pairs. Like […]

I’m a Liar with No Will Power

There I was in the beginning of November ready to contain my kicks buying bender. I had everything I needed kicks-wise with my latest addition of a Roshe Run. I needed no more kicks for 2012. Then Black Friday came. Nike online features a clearance section as always, but couple that discount with an additional […]

I Am Nicholas Goda??

Apparently in the realm of Nike+, I’m known as Nicholas Goda. But then again, so are a few other runners. After upgrading the Nike+ Running iOS app to version 4.0, my profile quietly messed up. While my nickname, icon/avatar, and email address remained the same, I took on the running identity of Nicholas Goda. I’m […]

Nike Zoom Structure Is For Me

I can’t deny it. Nike’s Structure line of running shoes is for me. No matter what other Nikes I experiment with, I always come back to the Structure. I used to run in the Moto but moved up to the more supportive Structure line. I’ve had the 12, the 14, and recently, picked up the […]
