The Week in Review is a collection of both all the goodness I’ve written during the past week around the internet, as well as a small pile of links I found interesting – generally endurance sports related. I’ve often wondered what to do with all of the coolness that people write, and while I share a lot of it on Twitter and Google Plus, this is a better forum for sending it on to y’all. Most times these different streams don’t overlap, so be on the lookout at all these places for good stuff!
So with that, let’s get into the action!
DCRainmaker.com posts this past week: While there was plenty of interest in the Timex Run Trainer post – I think I found the guest post by Lindsey most entertaining!
Men’s Health/Gatorade/Urbanathlon Blog posts this past week: In addition to all my writings here, I also cover a bunch of topics over on the Men’s Health Urbanathlon blog. Here’s the goods from the past week:
Note that I post over there twice a week, and Sarah posts twice a week as well. It’s a tag-team event.
Bicycling Magazine – December 2011 issue:
Rumor has it that they’ve seen another article of mine posted in the December issue of Bicycling Magazine. It’s the start of a multi-month series on bicycling related apps for your phone, so go check it out at your local newsstand.
Stuff that I found interesting around the interwebs: Here’s a not-so-small smattering of all the random things that I stumbled on while doing my civic duty to find the end of the Internet:
6) New SiRFStarV GPS Chipset announced: Will be interesting to see when this makes its way into the next series of GPS watches. I’d be eyeing the Garmin spring releases if it were me…and no, I don’t know anything about those. Just a guess. Sorry!
7) New Kona Lottery Rules Announced: In case you somehow missed it last week – swing on over to check out the latest details on how the new Kona Lottery will work, complete with the 12+ automatic entry system.
Congrats to all those who finished Ironman Florida or the NYC Marathon this weekend, as well as anything else racing!
You probably stumbled upon here looking for a review of a sports gadget. If you’re trying to decide which unit to buy – check out my in-depth reviews section. Some reviews are over 60 pages long when printed out, with hundreds of photos! I aim to leave no stone unturned.
I travel a fair bit, both for work and for fun. Here’s a bunch of random trip reports and daily trip-logs that I’ve put together and posted. I’ve sorted it all by world geography, in an attempt to make it easy to figure out where I’ve been.
The most common question I receive outside of the “what’s the best GPS watch for me” variant, are photography-esq based. So in efforts to combat the amount of emails I need to sort through on a daily basis, I’ve complied this “My Photography Gear” post for your curious minds! It’s a nice break from the day to day sports-tech talk, and I hope you get something out of it!
Many readers stumble into my website in search of information on the latest and greatest sports tech products. But at the end of the day, you might just be wondering “What does Ray use when not testing new products?”. So here is the most up to date list of products I like and fit the bill for me and my training needs best! DC Rainmaker 2018 swim, bike, run, and general gear list. But wait, are you a female and feel like these things might not apply to you? If that’s the case (but certainly not saying my choices aren’t good for women), and you just want to see a different gear junkies “picks”, check out The Girl’s 2018 Gear Guide too.
