How To Treat Calluses

Maybe it has happened to you; maybe it hasn't. It definitely has happened to me on more than one occasion. You know what I am talking about, don't you? Having a callus ripped off your hand on an obstacle. The first time it happened to me was at the Spartan Race Palmerton Super. I came up to the Twister, hopped on it, and halfway through I felt a chunk of my hand missing. It happened again this past weekend to me at the OCR World Championships, this time happening on Skull Valley during the 3K race.

Enter the ADV SKIN 5 SET, a sleek, low-profile, lightweight vest from the team at Salomon. Not only is it very light, it looks good too.

2017 Killington Ultra Beast & Beast Review

I have been around the block this year. I have gone through a number of injuries that have inhibited or limited my participation in almost all of my events this year. When Killington started rolling around, I was nervous about running the Ultra Beast on this mountain again. Last year, the mountain almost took me out when my knee decided to make everything past mile 11 grueling.

COAST FL75 Headlamp Review

If you have the itch for a long race, one of the items you will likely need is a headlamp. With so many options out there, it can be a daunting task trying to pick the right one for your needs. There are a few brands that lead the pack, Black Diamond, Petzl, Princeton Tec, etc. Unfortunately, it seems that one company doesn't seem to be mentioned all that much, and it is confusing as to why.
