Reviews.....

I totally love my Salomon recovery shoes. They are very comfortable and very unique looking. Get compliments every time I wear them.


A running store lead me to believe that the Salomon XA 20W back pack was to be used for running.......


I totally disagree.

It's carrying capacity too large and my hydration pack flopped all over the place when I used it for an 18 miler.... Had to readjust straps several times and still ended up with lots of chaffing. I will use it for hiking.



Love the new Cliff formula......... Hate that they put a nutritional information sticker over top the same nutritional information already on the package. WTF?

I have to remove the stickers because I get the heebie jeebies when my mouth touches the papery sticker. That's a bummer.

Do you ever question why a product is the way it is?

Gotta run.

I like that new Clif gel formula. I never had the "old" I guess, but I like this new stuff. Vanilla is my go-to flavor!

I would like that sticker either. A little gross to just suck on paper.

I would have to agree on the paper (that gives me the shivers like nails on a chalkboard for some reason) and what a waste of resources. I've tried running with my Camelback and just can't seem to do it without getting annoyed.

William..... I love my Nathan hydration pack. Was comfortable from the get-go. I suppose I shouldn't have tried to fix something that wasn't broken :-o

The backpack review was really helpful! You are the UltraPrincess, so I'd like to know what you prefer to bring on longer runs to stay hydrated. I see you mentioned the Nathan hydration pack in a comment. Which one do you use? Thanks!!

Christina...... I use the Nathan Intensity hydration pack. I switched out the bladder that came with it for a Camelbak bladder (the bite valve on the Camelbak is sooooo much easier to drink from).

that seems cheesy to put a paper sticker over the package on the clif gels. I have never tried them before new or old.
