Mizuno trails have always done well here at Runnergy. This new Diachi continues the light and nimble feel. Additional flex grooves adds a little natural movement with out feeling too stiff. The wave plate is located just in rear of the shoe for additional stability when needed like running down hill.
After lots of success of the women's Topo "UltraFly" we got some new models including that awesome looking brown trail shoe. Yep, I said brown. So cool! All Topo's have a low heel drop and a no pitch toe box which is great for all day comfort.

Los Angeles marathon is coming up, are you ready?
Here are some tips to ensure you have a great day on race day!
Tip # 1 If you haven't start breaking in your race day shoes!
Tip #2 Figure out your nutrition and how you're going to stash it on you
Tip #3 Get extra sleep the week leading up to the day
Tip #4 If you go to the expo on Saturday (day before) don't spend too much time on your feet.
Tip # 5 Eat as USUAL prior to race day. Carbo-loading as they call it can be tricky and risky. I suggest you don't do anything NEW!
Tip #6 Stay hydrated with more than just water. You need electrolytes! I prefer "Tailwind" hydration drink
Tip #7 Get your last long run this week at the latest. You want to be well rested and recovered!
Tip #8 Have all your stuff ready the night before including your shoe, apparel, nutritional and of course race bib. ALL READY TO GO RACE MORNING!
Tip #9 Have a plan for after the race for transportation and food.......EAST ASAP!!!
Tip #10 Do not......I repeat DO NOT go out too fast. Stick to your planned paced. If it seems like everyone is flying by you......your doing it correctly! It is hot......go out even slower and hydrate more often.
Bonus tip.........have fun!!!!
This new update is fantastic. The new "Everun" cushioning is super smooth. Saucony also widened the foot print which appears to increase the stability. Fits snug, but not tight. My only grip is the laces which are stretchy. It's actually a good thing, but customers who like a clinched on fit have complained. Overall this shoe is an improvement over previous models.
I have my Garmin 920 XT for about 6 months and I love it. I use it mainly for running and biking although it will also work for swimming. The GPS picks up signal super quick and holds very well. The screen is large and easy to read. It is great not having to have a separate bike computer. All I have to do is switch to bike mode. I wear my 920xt all day as well and it notifies me emails/text messages. It works as an activity tracker so I know how much I am moving around for the day. It is amazingly light wt. and the battery is surprisingly long, as in weeks. I also connect it wireless to my cell phone via the Garmin "Connect" app to see all my stats.
