Below is a video review for my running headlamp of choice. Simple, light, and BRIGHT all from one battery. Ranging from 0.1 – 750 lumens, this single LED bulb can take you through your dark basement or running through the middle of the woods screaming down single track trails in pitch darkness.

Amphipod Profile-Lite Airstretch 20 Video Review:
Approaching a new world of ultra running and longer weekly long runs nutrition and fueling on the run is an area I need to embrace – like it or not. 5k – half marathon racing I can get away with zero calories during the run … nothing. During marathon training, I take pride it heading out the door for 18-23 mile long runs with 0-2 gels … 4 on race day while not breaking pace through the water stops. Now, with a newer focus on trail ultra marathons for at least the first half of 2013, nutrition and fueling NEEDS to be dialed in. Not being fueled properly in a road marathon will certainly lead to “bonking” and a poor race result – not fun. Not being fueled properly on some ultra marathons can leave you walking for hours in the middle of the woods by yourself depleted and completely trashed – not fun but also not safe.
