Take your running off road with a pair of supportive, stable trail shoes that won’t slow you down.


First up is the On Running Cloudventure Peak, which features an innovative pod sole. Instead of connecting to the midsole throughout the shoe, there are pods that leave a gap for air to pass through. It looks a bit strange, but offers more support and cushioning, according to the manufacturer.


Merrell has a great reputation in the outdoor gear world, and the All Out Crush 2 Gore-Tex shoes live up to it. Made from vegan-friendly materials throughout, these striking runners are full waterproof and built to handle long distances.


Hoka One One Speedgoat 2 is another good choice, built for ultra-running over hundreds of miles. One of the best features is the Vibram sole, which has deep lugs for great traction on a variety of surfaces.


The Saucony Xodus 2 Iso GTX is another waterproof option, and it offers lots of support. A low heel drop means you’re encouraged to run with a natural gait, reducing the strain on your joints.


If you regularly run in the wet, the Inov-8 X-Talon 230 are a great buy. The sole is specially made for soggy trails and the grip is fantastic. However, the trade off is performance on tarmac is lacking.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.

How to Pack for Unpredictable Weather

It can be difficult to pack when the weather is unpredictable. Only so many things can be packed into a suitcase before it becomes too much. Frequent travelers know this is a problem. Even if the weather isn’t unpredictable in temperature, it can be unpredictable in the sense of not knowing whether a bad storm is coming or not. While it is challenging to pack for these types of trips, it is not impossible for travelers to pack the right objects and clothing for unpredictable weather.
