The Seacoast Half Marathon Needs You!
You're not busy the morning of Sunday, November 11th, are you? Perfect! Because the Seacoast Half Marathon needs volunteers. This race would not be possible each year without the dozens of volunteers who step up and give of their time! The best part is 100% of the proceeds from the 2012 Seacoast Half Marathon go to Families First Health and Support Center. So, your efforts as a volunteer make a huge difference in the lives of many in the Seacoast community.

New Kicks On the Block...
Every fall, the fans of the Asics GT 2000 series hold their breath as they await the latest changes to their favorite shoe. Well, there is nothing to fear in 2012, Asics mild support lovers, because the all-new GT 2000 is better than you could imagine! The posting is restructured to have pillars throughout, which results in a smoother transition from heel to toe. There is also more gel in the heel and an additional soft midlayer called Soft Top Duomax, which increases comfort and gait efficiency. Weight on both the men's and women's GT 2000 stayed the same as the GT 2170.
Nike Structure 16: Nike has seen success with their Dynamic Support system in the LunarGlide and has now taken the concept to the all-new Structure 16. The Dynamic Support, which is an adaptive support system, is a bit more aggressive in the Structure than the LunarGlide, but awesome just the same. Because of this change, the Structure 16 is 15% lighter than the 15, making it ideal for any runner who needs support but doesn't want to sacrifice performance.
New Balance 860 V3: We thought the 860 couldn't get any better after V2, but it looks like we've been proven wrong! Called a 'game changer' for New Balance, the all-new 860 has a more secure mid-foot wrap, an upgraded crash pad and more ground contact, for improved stability.
You're Going to Want to Run in the Pouring Rain....
Think all waterproof jackets have to be hot, clammy and barely breathable? Well, The North Face says be uncomfortable no longer in waterproof! Their new waterproof and windproof Stormy Trail Jacket features Flash Dry technology, which has a microporous particle additive that accelerates the removal of moisture from the skin and kicks evaporative drying into high gear (basically, you stay dry, even as you sweat and endure pouring rain). Further, it will never wear or wash out!! While Flash Dry is in many other North Face products, it's appearance in the Stormy Trail jacket is most significant because it means there is FINALLY a waterproof option that is light, uber breathable and not bulky in the slightest. Thank you North Face. We'll never forget this.
