Outdoor Edit // Volume 2
Tons of travel this week—last weekend we were in Whistler out in BC, then a couple days in Vancouver, then back east to Toronto and up to Collingwood, but then back to Toronto for some family fun yesterday. So I was really, really happy to finally be in one spot this morning and get in an ultra long trail run with tons of hills, and a quick bike ride after. (Actually, I felt like yesterday’s Frazz comic strip!) Anyway, here’s a few cool things I’ve found this week.
Love this // Velocio’s Light Long Sleeve Jersey in Graphite. You can see it in the picture above (thanks, Peter!): it’s perfect for in-between temps where you would normally wear arm warmers (I don’t tend to love arm warmers, to be honest), and it fits great. Plus, I love the graphite color—you don’t see it too often!
Read this // I’ve been writing a lot about nutrition lately for Bicycling Magazine, and a few articles came up this week that I’m particularly psyched on. First, I got to interview the author of The Thrive Diet, Brendan Brazier. Super interesting and smart dude with some great points about vegan diets. Then, another brilliant guy, Laurent Bannock, and I got to chat about high fat/low carb and what that means for cyclists. (Hint: no matter who I talked to, moderation was always key!!) Then, Stacy Sims PhD, the brilliant founder of Osmo Nutrition, and I talked hydration for cyclists. Plus, I spoke to a psychologist—Mark Faries—about the psychology of how we eat healthy, and Dr. Ralf Jäger about how probiotics can make you a better athlete. It’s been a great month of chatting with crazy smart people.
