Meet Kaia, The Famously Fast XC Biking Dog

Who’s the fastest trail dog you’ve ever encountered?

Bryan Gre­gory of Port Moody, British Colum­bia, is lucky enough to have a pooch who likes cross-country bik­ing even more than he does. Although Kaia doesn’t have her own bike, she can hit the trails with the best of ‘em. Bryan says the biggest chal­lenge of bik­ing with Kaia is keep­ing up with her. Fox­wood Films put together a pro­duc­tion show­cas­ing Bryan and Kaia’s per­fect partnership—check out the speed on that pup!

7 Things (NOT) to Do On Long Run Days

Run­ners: Fight these temp­ta­tions before you develop bad habits.

Exhaus­tion. Won­der­ful, ful­fill­ing exhaus­tion. You know, that feel­ing that over­comes you as you take the final few steps of your weekly long run. You did it. You got up before the sun, fueled prop­erly, and spent the whole morn­ing putting miles under your feet and ful­fill­ing one of your most impor­tant train­ing oblig­a­tions. As you slow to a walk and breathe a sigh of sat­is­fied relief, you’re prob­a­bly already think­ing about what’s next.  That’s where so many run­ners make their

180 South Tents – A Clymb Exclusive

Two Clymb employ­ees put 180 South tents to the test at the Deschutes River.

I pitched the Juniper 2 in a juniper grove entirely by acci­dent. Myself, and a buyer at The Clymb, Brett Cas­sidy, were camp­ing at the Deschutes River and we had the good for­tune to give these new 180 South tents that are exclu­sive to The Clymb a trial run. The world-famous salmonfly hatch was on, and a cur­sory glance at the river­bank grass revealed these thumb-sized bugs in abun­dance. I was anx­ious to wet my line, so I jumped out of

New Balance: Smokin’ Fast Track Shoes

Time to beat the clock.

You run the roads, map your routes, and now you want to take the strength you’ve built and apply it to the track — then here’s the shoe for you. This new rac­ing flat from New Bal­ance is what you need to beat the clock. Its light­weight, low-profile design will make it feel like smoke is fly­ing off your heels. Yet these are not Michael Johnson’s golden shoes. They won’t dis­in­te­grate after a few laps. They find the bal­ance between

Q&A with Photographer Zack Frank

Shed­ding light on America’s unpro­tected natural wonders.

Amer­ica the beau­ti­ful. As Amer­i­cans, this is a phrase we’ve grown up with and it’s some­thing to say with pride, because come on now– this land really is as stun­ning as it gets. We’ve taken the fam­ily road trips to pro­tected nat­ural areas across the country—been left speech­less from the sights of tow­er­ing glac­i­ers, found soli­tude explor­ing mon­strous red rock canyons and expe­ri­enced the thrill of pad­dling a mon­strous river in the mid­dle of nowhere. But  there are many more nat­ural won­ders out

5 Reasons Why I Want My Kids To See Me Running

A runner-mother’s com­mit­ment to her children.

Run­ning, among so many other things, would be so easy to let go now that I’m a par­ent, as the demands of par­ent­hood are boun­ti­ful, intense, rig­or­ous, and con­tin­u­ous. There isn’t time for all that existed in your life before, and your pri­or­i­ties must change. How­ever, when the win­dow opened to ‘let things go’ from my pre-children lifestyle, I grabbed onto run­ning and slammed that win­dow shut with every­thing I had. Then I nailed it. Run­ning wasn’t going any­where in
