I told you about the travel kit I put together for my husband who wet-shaves with vintage double-edged razors in a previous post (see links at the end of this post).  His kit is loaded with all of the luxuries of home, but it's big and heavy and takes a lot of room in his [...]

podiumskinsuits-tron

I'm not much of a cyclist myself, but I am a big fan of the "Tron" films, particularly the newer "Tron: Legacy." The futuristic costumes worn by the characters inside their imaginary computer reality were way cool. When I randomly stumbled onto this Tron-Inspired Cycling Skinsuit from Podium Cycling, I had to share it. Due [...]

ScoreBand-1

I am a golfer, at one time I could be called an avid golfer playing two, three or even four times a week. Although golf is a great way to free your mind, with all the tranquility I often find my mind wandering on the course. This leads me to forget how many shots I [...]

Best.running.watch...ever. I have used many fitness and running watches over the years, none of them perfect. Some came closer than others to running-Zen, but many never even left the gate. I have been using the Garmin fēnix 2 on and off for months now and continue to be amazed how much it impresses me. I know my first [...]

It seems today, everyone has some sort of fitness device to track their activity levels. One of the first activity trackers I can remember are the old pedometers, you know that little counter that you clipped to your belt, you worked out your stride length, and poof you were off counting your steps. My how [...]
