• Is Trail Running for You? What to Know and What to Wear

    Go ahead, run! Trail running is gaining in popularity so it’s a good thing we live in Colorado where there are tons of dedicated trails to run on. While there are pros and cons to trail running, one thing is for certain, Boulder Running Company can help you choose the right trail running shoe for your needs and style. But first, let’s take a look at some of the reasons why trail running is so great and some of the things to watch out for:

    What’s great about trail running:

    • It lets you release that primal need to just run, run, run. Being in nature helps give you that wild feeling.
    • The softer surfaces are easier on your joints and muscles.
    • You get to run for the sake of running, not for beating a time or for getting some exercise in before the workday begins.
    • It’s often safer because you don’t have to worry about sharing the road with cars.
    • The varied terrain is more interesting to look at.
    • Your endurance and muscle strength improve because the terrain is usually more difficult, requiring the use of different muscles and your core to manage uneven terrain and inclines.



    What to beware of in trail running:

    • Some of the very things that are good, can be a negative including that softer surfaces can be muddy, rocky and slippery, increasing the chance of injury.
    • Being in the wilderness, away from familiar city streets or park paths, can mean you can get lost or don’t have access to help if you get injured.
    • You may be so busy looking around you at the beautiful scenery, that you trip or twist your ankle on the uneven surfaces.

    So, overall, be safe, aware and prepared to fully enjoy trail running. Part of that preparation is having the right kind of shoe. Now, let’s take a look at some of the options Boulder Running Company has to offer the trail runner.

    Women:

    dynafit-pantera-trail-shoe-womenCreated by ski touring and mountain specialists, Dynafit Pantera Trail Shoe ($139.95) offers DUO motion full length EVA midsole for cushion and stability. The ESS midsole plate provides flexible protection from sharp stones while the Vibram mapping compound sole has three rubber compounds that can take on a variety of surfaces.

     

    new-balance-wt1010-womenConsidered a minimal trail running shoe, the New Balance WT1010 ($109.95) has a 4mm heel-to-toe offset that encourages more of a midfoot stike. A forefoot rock plate protects feet on rocky terrain. The thin upper has a tighter weave to help you maintain medial and lateral support on uneven terrain while the Vibram outsole offers durability and real group on the trail.

    Men:

    hoka-one-one-stinson-atr-menThe oversized EVA Midsole Technology of the Hoka One One Stinson ATR ($159.95) has 2.5X greater volume than traditional running shoes which encourages running longer, with better stability and more cushioning. The light EVA midsole compresses, providing excellent shock absorption, springing back underfoot to give you better acceleration.

     

    pearl-izumi-e-motion-trail-m2-menFor runners who tend toward mid-foot pronation, the Pearl Izumi E:Motion Trail M2 ($124.95) is the best choice. Midsole densities provide support and stability while the forefoot’s rock plate and lugged outsole let you handle rocks and other debris on the trail. “Project E:motion” provides a smooth, fluid running experience.

     

    Boulder Running Company has an extensive selection of trail running shoes for both men and women. Shop online or come into one our stores to see the full selection, try on some shoes and see which ones feel best for your trail running experience so you can run free, with confidence and comfort.

  • 3 Things to Look for In a Running Sock

    We give a lot of thought to our running shoes (and with good reason) but the item closest to them, the thing that comes between our bare feet and that great running shoe, also deserves careful consideration. You can’t just substitute any day-to-day sock for the socks you wear while running. They need to be built differently, with comfort, durability and function in mind. Here’s why:

      • Cushioning – A good running sock, has extra cushioning in all the right places with the impact of your foot and the contact the shoe has with your foot in mind.

      • Durability – You’re putting a sock through the paces when it’s coming between your constantly-moving foot and shoe. A running sock needs to be made well, of good quality fabric with strong stitching (that doesn’t irritate your foot) and reinforced areas, like the toe and heel, that get the most wear.

      • Staying power – How annoying is it when your sock starts to lose its elasticity and inches its way down into your shoe, exposing your heel to blisters and bunching up under your instep? So annoying! Make sure your running socks have quality elasticity and a proper fit so that when you put them on, they stay put, doing their job.

      Now that you know what to look for, you need look no further to find socks that meet the criteria above.

      cushion-crew-sock-unisexThis crew length sock has cushioning that’s the perfect thickness in key impact areas. To keep your feet cool and dry, the Feetures High Performance Light Cushion Crew Sock – Unisex ($11.95) uses iWick fibers to wick moisture and SnugFit Technology with power bands of Lycra for support.

       

      balega-enduro-low-cut-sock-unisexYou’ve got to feel good about a company whose name is a Zulu word meaning “to move with speed.” With a very high thread count, the Balega Enduro Low Cut Sock-Unisex ($10.95) feels plush and comfortable yet is great at wicking moisture away. The sock provides optimal airflow and even has a mesh ventilation panel at the top for enhanced breathability. An extra deep heel pocket prevents the sock from sliding down.

       

      Those are just two of the running socks we have and they happen to be unisex. But we have men’s and women’s socks as well as compression versions. Take a look at our selection, consider your shoes, where you run and what you want out of a sock. We’re sure you’ll find something at Boulder Running Company that keeps you running happy. Although reasonably priced, consider running socks an investment in your overall running equipment. It’s worth it.

    2. Cool Gear for Hot Days

      We’re in for a long, hot summer. But you aren’t about to let some heat keep you from running. Instead, dress for keeping your cool while your body heats up and the sun beats down. Take a look at a few of the items for men and women we’ve spotlighted, from what you wear on the outside to what you wear underneath.

      For men:

      nike drifit knit short sleeve shirt menThe ultra-soft tri-blend fabric of the Nike DriFit Knit Short Sleeve Shirt 519714 ($70) moves with you. But the real comfort comes from seamless construction that means less irritation from chafing and open mesh texture on the sides to keep air flowing when it gets hot. A cord management loop on the center-back of the neck helps keep cords out of the way – a nice touch.

       

      mizuno-aero-singlet-menOn race day or just when you’re doing fast-paced running, you’ll be glad you have the Mizuno Aero Singlet ($44.95). Mizuno’s DryLite moisture management technology keeps your body dry while the Body Mapping technology provides great air circulation, helping you keep your cool. BlindStitch means no abrasion (not even from labels) and that means more comfort for you.

       

      brooks-equilibrium-brief-menWhether you’re going on a quick, every day run or taking on something more intense, the Brooks Sherpa Short III ($39.95) will get you through it in comfort. Moisture wicking materials keep moisture away from your skin while the light internal brief liner adds comfort and support. Added perks that just make these shorts a real asset to your running wardrobe include dual rear holster pockets with Velcro closures for storing gels and other essentials, an internal key/ID storage pocked and 360 degrees of Scotchlite retroreflectivity for increased visibility.

       

      brooks-sherpa-short-III-menUnderneath it all, the Brooks Equilibrium Brief ($19.95) provides a great foundation for any running outfit. With moisture wicking material that keeps you dry and comfortable, a soft elastic waistband and lightweight support, these briefs will help keep you cool from the inside, out.

       

       

       

       

      For women:

      brooks-verstaile-ez-short-sleeve-top-womenThe Brooks Verstaile EZ Short Sleeve Top ($33.95) could quickly become your favorite running shirt. Incredibly soft and lightweight, the shirt helps keep you cool and dry with moisture wicking materials. The flattering V-neck has flatlock seams to reduce irritation as you move.

       

      sugoi-boulder-running-company-singlet-womenShow some Boulder Running Company love with the Sugoi Boulder Running Company Singlet ($49.95), showing off the custom designed Flatiron motif with the Colorado flag. The material is ultra lightweight and very breathable with moisture wicking material.

       

      brooks-glycerin-2-in-1-short-womenWhen choosing a pair of running shorts, you want style, comfort and ease of movement. The Brooks Glycerin 2 in 1 Short ($45.95) fits the bill all around. This popular Brooks’ style now has a supportive boy short liner to provide more coverage. Moisture wicking materials draw sweat away from your skin while the wide waistband helps the shorts stay put without digging into your skin. Store keys and ID in an interior stash pocket. Run confidently knowing you have 360 degrees of Scotchlite retroreflectivity for enhanced visibility.

       

      The foundatbrooks-versatile-womens-braion of a comfortable run is this foundation item! The Brooks Versatile Women's Bra ($33.95) provides compression and encapsulation to maintain proper support through M-frame construction. The breathable mesh in key sweat zones prevents a build-up of moisture. Attractive enough to wear on its own, the bra comes in solids and heather colors.

       

       

       

      Come in to one of our stores or shop online to see all of the comfortable, breathable, moisture-wicking items we carry for men and women. And remember, we have free shipping on orders over $75, making it easy for you to stock up on the essentials you’ll need for your summer running wardrobe.

    3. Warm Weather Accessories

      The heat is on…and getting hotter. Keep your cool while running with accessories that will make you more comfortable and keep you safer at the same time.

      HYDRATION

      If you aren’t hydrated, you’re in danger. Boulder Running Company has several types of packs that make accessing water while on the run easy.

      handheld hydration packHow many times have you dropped your water bottle while running, or had to hide your house key under a flower pot to avoid having to carry them? This clever product takes care of both of those problems. The Ultimate Direction FastDraw Plus Handheld Hydration Pack ($19.95) carries 20 ounces of water in a 100% BPA-Free bottle. The unique Kicker Valve prevents leaking. A comfortable strap wraps over your hand helping you maintain a grip on the bottle on one side, while on the other side, a handy zipper pocket holds keys, ID and other essentials.

       

      nathan trail mix 2 bottle hydration beltFor day-to-day running or during a race, the Nathan Trail Mix 2 Bottle Hydration Belt ($44.95) lets you maintain two smaller bottles and storage for phone, keys and other essentials, strapped around your waist. New mono-filament 20% stretch in the belt provides a bounce free ride. Tension molded holsters keep the bottles in place.

       

      hoka one one evo race packWhen you’re going the distance on a long run and/or race, the Hoka One One Evo Race Pack ($149.95) will be your new best friend. This limited edition pack has a storage capacity of up to 17 liters between the large storage pocket on the back plus several smaller areas on the sides. There are three pockets for food and gels and one pocket with zip closure to keep your phone, cash, credit cards and ID safe. There’s even a whistle included on an adjustment strap and a place to secure poles. An Airback Ventilation Mesh on the back keeps things breathable and comfortable.

       

      HEADWEAR

      brooks nightlife hatAn important part of keeping cool is protecting your head from the intense sun. Visors help shield your eyes and offer protection from the sun and rain. Although it’s intended for use at night (and who doesn’t love running in the cool of a summer’s night?), we also recommend the Brooks Nightlife Hat ($34.95) for use during the day because of its visible, bright yellow color. But at night, it really shines as an important running accessory. A flat, flashing LED light in the hat is powered by a Lithium battery that can be easily replaced. 3M Scotchlite retroreflective piping enhances your visibility. The hat is machine-washable.

       

      Boulder Running Company LogoShow your Boulder Running Company love while keeping cool with the Headsweats Race Hat with Boulder Running Company Logo ($24.95). Ultra lightweight and breathable this hat has a Coolmax fabric shell and fabric terry headband to create airflow and absorb sweat. It also has Invista certified UPF sun protection.

      SOCKS

      cushion low cut sockRunning in the heat means your feet get hot even faster. Good, lightweight socks help prevent chafing, too much sweat and blistering. Feetures High Performance Light Cushion Low Cut Sock Unisex ($10.95) combines cushioning with breathability, making it one of our most popular socks. There’s high density cushioning just where you need it, in high impact areas. Power Bands of Lycra® hug your foot, keeping the sock in place, avoiding rubbing and bunching up. iWick™ fibers wick moisture away, keeping your feet drier and more comfortable as do the light weight mesh panels that encircle your foot.

      Stop in to one of our stores, give us a call at 1-800-807-61791-800-807-6179 or shop online to see all of the many products we have that will help you stay cool, hydrated and comfortable on every run, whether around your neighborhood, on the race trail or in the mountains. We’ve got your warm-weather comfort in mind.

While you will want good quality gear, it’s best to buy what’s right for your current budget and abilities. Think of it as the start of a relationship with us at Boulder Running Company.

      SHOES

      brooks-trance-12-for-menThe Brooks Trance 12 for Men ($149.95) is a great everyday shoe that provides plush levels of cushioning along with stability and support. The Caterpillar heel crash pad improves the heel-to-toe transition. A built-in bootie in the shoe’s upper creates a great fit.

      hoka-one-one-kailua-tarmac-for-womenIt may look unusual, but the Hoka One One Kailua Tarmac for Women ($129.95) wins the popularity contest in running. The cushioned rocker profile is light and comfortable. As you start running longer distances, this shoe is right for a variety of surfaces. The beauty of the design is that the oversized midsole absorbs any hard obstacle your foot might pass over. Then, once it’s compressed, the midsole springs back up under your forefoot for increased acceleration.

       

      CLOTHES

      brooks-sherpa-2-in-1-short-for-menThe Brooks Sherpa 2 in 1 Short for men ($49.95) has a boxer brief liner for comfort and to wick moisture away from skin. It also has retroreflectivity for added visibility.

The built-in bra has molded cups and durable shoulder straps that don’t cut into your shoulder while allowing for movement from the mesh racerback.

    7. Hoka One One Clifton Sneak Preview- In Stock Now

      Hoka One One Clifton- Available 7/1/14

      Hoka One One Clifton, Available 7/1/14:

       

       

      Just in time for Summer 2014, Hoka One One’s Clifton may be their most versatile shoe released yet. Taking the best features out of sister shoes Stinson and Bondi, the Clifton weighs in at a mere 7.9 ounces, making it one of the lightest training shoes on the market.

      Remarkably lightweight with a noticeable rocker profile, the Clifton is an ideal shoe for faster paced runs, recovery runs, everyday training and even racing. Anyone that has tried Hoka before and found the signature oversized technology bulky or heavy will love this shoe as it its ideal for those seeking the benefits of signature Hoka maximum cushioning technology but in a lighter, smoother, performance based platform.

      The Clifton utilizes EVA midsole material as seen in the Bondi 2 and Bondi 3 but in a much lighter package, making it an ideal option for runners who want an ultra lightweight training shoe with unparalleled levels of cushioning compared to other shoes on the market. The best thing about the Clifton is the versatility of the shoe- it is light enough for racing, workouts, or tempo runs, yet responsive and cushioned enough for everyday training as well in a much lighter package than anything else they've produced to date. Runners that prefer a lighter training shoe for everyday training should do well in the Clifton.

      In our wear testing (with about 150 miles on it thus far) we have found the fit to be a bit more narrow than in other models, with a much more wear resistant outsole than before. The Clifton has exposed EVA on the outsole as well as reinforced blown rubber in high impact areas (much like the Bondi line). So far the outsole wear and tear has been pretty minimal and the outsole is holding up well. A 4mm drop combined with a lightweight, breathable mesh upper, and a wallet friendly price of $129.95 makes the Clifton is a must try option this summer.

    8. Our Top Deals on Sale at Boulder Running Company

      At Boulder Running Company we pride ourselves on giving you the best prices on the best gear when we hold a sale. Come into one of our four locations or shop online to see everything we have on sale. But meanwhile, here’s just a little teaser to get you started.

      For Men
      brooks-pureconnectRunners who want less shoe that’s low-to-the-ground prefer the Brooks PureConnect (regularly $89.95, now $58.47). At just 7.2 ounces, the toe box has a separate area for the big toe to function independently of the other four toes. This structure engages a runner’s natural balance. The inverted heel promotes a more forward landing position that helps maintain the center of gravity, reducing the potential for injury.

      asics-gel-fortitude-5If you wear orthotics, they’ll easily fit in the Asics Gel Fortitude 5 (regularly $99.95, now $79.96). Asics made this generation of the Gel Fortitude lighter, slightly wider, with a better fitting upper. Rear and forefoot gel cushioning absorbs shock during the gait cycle, adding support to the midsole.

      hoka-one-one-bondi-bThe rocker shaped midsole gives the Hoka One One Bondi B (regularly $159.95, now $119.96) its function. The form reproduces conditions a barefoot runner experiences when running on grass or sand. The shoe provides protection, stability and pronation control thanks to 50% more of the surface area coming in contact with the ground and a midsole that allows the foot to recess into it by almost one inch.

       

      For Women

      nilike-lunarglideLightweight at 7.9 ounces, the Nike Lunarglide+ 4 (regularly $109.95, now $76.96) provides substantial cushion and solid medial support. Dynamic Flywire threads work with the shoe’s lacing system to add support. Runners with mild overpronation benefit from this glove-like fit because of its lack of overlays.

      nike-flyknit-freeThe 100% polyester, no-added-stitching upper fits like a glove while being breathable and flexible in the Nike Flyknit Free (regularly $159.95, now $119.88). All of the components of this shoe interact for a smooth, natural walk or run. The midsole has flex grooves that strengthen your moving feet. Minimal waste and minimal weight mean this shoe has a reduced green footprint too.
