I am fascinated with the sleek design of this personal safety device. I see this a a great tool for anyone, and particularly someone who travels alot who wishes to get out and go for a run in unknown places. Ladies, while you are at it, order one for yourself. And your sister. And your daughter.

Hal has a few notable buckles on his ultramarathon running belt, namely Hard Rock 100 and a few Western States titles…. No big deal. I had the pleasure of meeting Hal when my little guy flirted with his two year old daughter on the swing set in our local park (have I mentioned that I live in an elite running mecca down here in Southern Oregon?). In addition to being an incredible athlete, he is simply a nice guy. His guide offers first hand insight into winning tips for ultrarunning.
A great headlamp is motivation to get one’s behind out of bed when it is dark out, and they are must for all of the fun overnight relay races coming up this summer.
Look for an upcoming list of gifts for the Gluten Free Dad as well!
Take care, and make your day great!
