My full review is up at Newcity.com.
But I also wanted to talk about something else. Last night my wife and I went over to Patagonia to check out a talk given by Krissy Moehl, aptly titled "Ultra Trail Running: An Evening With Krissy Moehl." Krissy was really engaging and gave a great talk about her experiences with ultra running before taking questions from the audience. And I have to say that this was probably one of the best Q&A sessions I've ever seen. Every person in the audience was really paying attention and all the questions were well thought out (as were the answers Krissy gave).

- "There's no bad weather, only bad gear."
- "Competition is with and not against. We're competing with each other, not against each other."
But on top of the excellent presentation and Q&A session, Patagonia was generous enough to do a drawing for some running gear, probably one of the best giveaways I've ever seen a store do. They gave away four pairs of trail running shoes (2 guys, 2 girls) and then two full trail running outfits (1 guy, 1 girl).
And luck was with me last night, because I actually won the full outfit!
Here's what that entails:
- Houdini Jacket
- Short-Sleeved Forerunner Shirt
- Strider Shorts
- Velocity Cap
- Lightweight Merino Run Anklet Socks
