As the colder winter temps have finally been hitting the Chicago area, I have been searching for the perfect cold weather gear to help me stay warm while I train in colder temps. It's not the first time that I have battled the cold weather when it comes to training, but recently I have been wanting to push my body to new heights. Lately there have been temps as low as -15 and I figured that now is as good a time as any to truly brave the frigged icy cold. I don't like to let the weather dictate my training, and I always leap at the chance work hand in hand with mother nature. Cold weather gear can make or break your outdoor training, so it's very important to find out what works for you and what doesn't.

My Must-Have Amino Acids - NOW SPORTS Bundle Giveaway




I am so excited to bring a new segment to the blog for 2016. One of my goals for the blog this year is to create new and exciting content for you along with some of the most popular content I focused on last year. Some of you may have already heard the good news through social media. I have been trying to keep it a secret since November. I have been throwing hints out there since, but no official announcement until two weeks ago.

XX2i USA1 Pro Racing Sunglasses Review





Disclaimer: I received XX2i Optics USA1 Sunglasses to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador) and check out BibRave.com to review find and write race reviews!



I was able to test out the XX2i Optics USA1 Pro Racing Sunglasses. I have never worn sport sunglasses during a run or a race. I've always thought about it during runs that are so freaking bright and sunny, but I didn't feel like investing in a pair at that time. There are great benefits to running with sunglasses and especially if they have polarized lenses.
