I’m featured in Runner’s World Magazine’s 50 Most Influential People in Running
I started getting tweets and notes last week that I’d apparently been featured in Runner’s World’s 50 Most Influential People in Running piece, but didn’t have the chance to see it for myself until the Newsstand App updated with October’s issue. Now, while travelling today I saw a copy at San Francisco International airport – I was even able to buy a copy in the little airport real-life newsstand store!
The issue covers various folks across a few main categories, as seen below:
I’m hugely honored to be selected – wow! And the short bit they wrote-up on me was exceedingly complimentary.
The list of others is mind-boggling in people to look up to and follow: Kara Goucher, Usain Bolt, Hal Higdon, and Jeff Galloway. Among many other big names. Notably, I believe everyone there runs faster than me. By a large margin.
Now get this though. The Girl can now add ‘Photographer for Runner’s World’ to her ever-expanding resume. See, back in July they asked me to send a photo over, but I didn’t really know what it was for other than noting something for a fall issue. We were down in Dubrovnik (Croatia) at the time, and just about to board the sailboat for our 7-day sailing trip, so we sorta had to make do with what we had on-hand. Which…was a bush in front of the hotel:
So a few test shots were taken. I have no idea what was going on here:
And then a lot more shots were taken (I just did as I was told):
(There are two of every photo because I always shoot dual RAW/JPEG)
And then finally, we got this:
Boom! I e-mailed it over, and called it donezo. And then totally forgot about it until last week. So it’s like the perfect Christmas present in September!
Of course, thanks to everyone who’s visited over the years – I certainly couldn’t have gotten things around these parts the way they are without you!
Now, go forth and pickup the magazine to read all the deets, or download it on the Runner’s World App (iTunes or Android).
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 2021 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 Gear Guide too.
