I am Colorado native and lived in Colorado my whole life. My passions are running and hiking. My goals are to hike all the Colorado 14ers. After I climb one 14er I cant wait to climb the next one. So far I have completed one marathon, and have goals to do trail marathons - such as the Pikes Peak Marathon in 2020. I'm always looking for the best gear without breaking the budget.
Salomon ADV Skin 5L Set Hydration Vest
Run far and stay hydrated
If you're looking to run far distances, stay hydrated, and feel like you're not wearing any extra gear - this is the vest for you! You will barely notice you have a hydration vest on when running with this vest. I believe the call it the Salomon ADV Skin because it truly does feel like you are wearing nothing at all. Included with this vest is two flasks that sit on the front of the vest that make drinking water easy. Not only can you carry water with this vest you can carry your phone, keys, nutrition, and much more! If you're looking to run further, stay, hydrated, and not feel like you have a bunch of gear on, I highly recommend this vest.
Brooks Ghost 11 Running Shoes - Men's
QUALITY Running Shoes
Almost one year ago I decided that I was going to train for my first marathon. My whole family is full of long distance runners, and they always stress how important it is to have good running shoes to avoid injuries. I got these running shoes and conquered my marathon training, and my first marathon. These shoes are the best running shoes I have ever used - pure quality. They are comfortable and light weight. I am 6' 3" 200lbs and this was the perfect shoe for me.
Salomon X Ultra 3 Mid GTX Hiking Boots
Looking for a hiking boot!
If you're looking for a hiking boot look no further! Two years ago the hiking boots I owned were beat up and not performing the way the use to. So, I went to REI and tried on these hiking boots - I fell in LOVE instantly. That being said, I have taken these boots on 2 years of adventures and hiking Colorado 14ers. They stay dry and get me through the toughest conditions. These are a must but if you are an avid hiker!
