LOWA Innox GTX Lo Boots ~ WanderGear Wednesday

by Beth Whitman (October 14th, 2015)

Even though I live in one of the most hiking-friendly areas of the country, I haven’t been that into hiking until recently. For the longest time I had one old pair of hiking boots that I wore for all sorts of weather and trails. Now, when I open my shoe closet, I have lots of […]

Essentials for Running ~ Road ID

by Beth Whitman (September 11th, 2015)

It’s funny. I’ve been wanting to get this review/mention about Road ID up on the blog for a long time but have, frankly, been sidetracked with a lot of other things and it’s been lower down on the priority list (sorry, Road ID folks!). But after publishing yesterday’s post about running (and travel) and how […]

Your Sixth Sense – A Matter of Life and Death?

by Beth Whitman (September 10th, 2015)

This summer I went to Jon’s family reunion in Watertown, New York, just about as far north in NY as you can get without being in Canada. Watertown’s got some charm to it. It’s home to an army base, Fort Drum, and sees lots of Canadian who come for the shopping deals. There are big […]

Ahnu Serena Sandal ~ WanderGear Wednesday

by Beth Whitman (July 29th, 2015)

Summer has been glorious in Seattle and, as a result, there have been lots of opportunities for me to wear my Ahnu Serena sandals. Adorable, right? But not only are these great to have in Seattle’s warm weather, they are lightweight and small enough to pack away for any warm weather destination. With travel to […]

Icebreaker Cool-Lite Spark Shorts ~ WanderGear Wednesday

by Beth Whitman (July 22nd, 2015)

I couldn’t have anticipated at the beginning of this summer that these Icebreaker Cool-Lite Spark Shorts would get so much use in such a short amount of time. Meant for warm weather, I’ve been wearing these often during my runs in Seattle because of our record-breaking temps. (No complaints, I’m loving it!) The material is […]

Olukai Momi Shoes ~ WanderGear Wednesday

by Beth Whitman (July 15th, 2015)

I love Hawaii. And I love a lot of things that connect me with the islands. Including Olukai. Enter…the Olukai Momi shoes. Any shoe that I can easily slip on and off gets major points from me. I think if I had it my way (maybe when I move to Hawaii – ha ha!), I […]

Fjallraven Nikka Shorts ~ WanderGear Wednesday

by Beth Whitman (July 1st, 2015)

It’s summer in Seattle and I’m confident enough that warm weather is here for awhile that all of my cool weather clothes are put away and my warm weather clothes are all that’s left in my closet and dresser drawers at the moment. That’s a great feeling. Even though our summer has technically just begun, […]

Pearl Izumi N1 Shoes ~ WanderGear Wednesday

by Beth Whitman (June 10th, 2015)

Now that I’ve really gotten into the habit of running and am training for the Honolulu Marathon, I’m learning a lot about my body, the sport and the gear that works best for me. My recent “aha” moment was realizing that, depending on conditions and the length of my run, my gear needs might change. […]

KEEN City of Palm Sandals ~ WanderGear Wednesday

by Beth Whitman (May 20th, 2015)

I’m a walker. Anytime I land in a city, the first thing I do is walk and walk and walk. Next to running, it’s the best way to experience the smells and soak up the culture and vibe of a new destination. When I was in New Orleans last week, I spent a lot of […]
