The RW Team just returned from a few days in Austin, Texas attending The Running Event, an annual trade show open to running specialty retailers from around the country. It features all of the top brands displaying many of their newest products and concepts. Here’s an overview of some of the new products we found of particular interest.
For the past 10+ years, my wife and I have attended the Payton Jordan Invitational at Stanford University the first weekend in May. Over the years we have witnessed some outstanding performances. Race such as Meb and Denna setting American Records in the 10k and Shalane Flanagan setting the AR in the women’s 5,000. Additional highlights include Bob Kennedy’s 27:36 and Alan Webb’s 10k debut win, this on top of the great 1500′s, steeples and 5,000 that happen every year. Even though this meet has some excellent distance events, the highlight of the evening are usually the 10,000′s.
