Garmin 735 XT Review

When Garmin announced the 735XT I was actually in the process of shopping for a new Fitness watch that could do relatively everything.

On CloudFlow Running Shoe Review

Recently I discovered the “On” brand of shoes after doing some research and reading reviews in various athletic magazines. On is a Swedish manufacturer and relative new comer to the shoe game.

It’s a real challenge to stay even-keeled and kind in places during times that send some off into twitter tirades. All of us wrestle with the delicate struggle between emotions and reason. My approach has generally been to retreat into myself and clam up in situations where I would rather be confrontational but know it […]
