“What’s with the fanny pack?” Whoa whoa whoa, hold up. This isn’t your mom’s fanny pack. Hey, we’re not knocking fanny packs (or your mom). An 80s staple, fanny packs held all the stuff your pockets couldn’t store, and proved less cumbersome than purses or backpacks. Performance running belts are much more than that, though. […]

When you’re traveling, whether it be for work or pleasure, one of the best ways to take advantage of your new surroundings is to go for a run. Planning a destination race or run can be the highlight of your trip, if you plan ahead. One issue that arises when you’re packing to travel is […]

You are no stranger to getting stuff in your shoes. And by stuff, I mean dirt, sand, rocks, snow, mud… you’re a trail runner – you’re pretty hardcore.

Freak. Out. Patagonia is here at Running Warehouse, and I don’t think anyone could be more excited than we are. We all held our breath in anticipation when we heard that we would be carrying running apparel from Patagonia beginning January 2016. You see, Patagonia is a brand built on a reputation for high quality, […]
Hydration is key to performing well on long runs. For this reason, it is important to find the method of hydration that works best for you while on the run. You can carry water in bottles or larger capacity bladders. When it comes to bottles, some runners love their handheld water bottles, and other stow […]
It was the 90s and I was in middle school. I was in the prime of my awkward stage, and my friends and I were stoked on the resurgence of a 1970s fashion trend: toesocks. I kid you not, we wore the things with our flip flops, and showed them off whatever the weather, year-round. […]
When temperatures are lower and weather is more fierce and unpredictable, you might think a solid winter running jacket is the key to running in comfort. We aren’t knocking that – because in some cases, that is what you need. But the key is finding the best way to stay warm for you. Everyone’s cold […]
I haven’t worn a heart rate monitor in over 10 years. Reason being, I haven’t been serious about my running performance for quite awhile. I still like to log my miles but I am no longer concerned about racing my best (or at all). After hearing about the new Garmin Forerunner 630 w/HRM-Run, I momentarily […]
CONTEST IS CLOSED. Thank you for your participation. It’s that time of year again. That time when you start remembering all of the goals you set at the beginning of the year and account for ones you did or did not accomplish. Don’t be too hard on yourself, you’re only human. And sometimes, life happens, […]
