Garmin 225 Review

The Garmin 225 - I like it and I had good results from the Optical Heart Rate monitor. However, I'd recommend you wait for the 235 which may be better. If not, the release of the updated 235 should drop the price of the 225 ;}

Asics 33-DFA Review



The Asics 33-DFA promises to support a more natural running form, something I applaud. However, while the result is far better than most running shoes, it’s too heavy to compete with the best. My review of the Asics33-DFA rates it as “worth considering”.
