I´ve been fortunate to gain the support of a number of brands over the years, and for that I am very graetful. It´s worth mentioning that I don´t partner with brands that I don`t fully trust and believe in, and am always open and honest with my feedback regarding products or races.
If you are interested in partnering with me, whether kit reviews, races or nutrition, then I would be excited to hear from you. You can get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org or via one of the social media channels linked through this page.
Whilst a relatively new brand to the maket, SUNGOD is taking the world by storm. Cutting edge materials, 4KO lenses, adventure proof build quality... the list goes on. I´ve recently started wearing both the sunglasses and the ski goggles, after getting fed up with glasses that slipped off my nose or were just not comfortable to wear during sports. The Renegades are my favourites so far, and i basically just wear them all the time! By the way, all glasses come with a lifetime guarantee. Show me another brand that offers that nowadays!
I have been using Polar GPS for more than 3 years now, and have been lucky enough to sample and test the Polar Vantage and Grit series. The current Polar Grit is hands down the best GPS watch I have owned - battery life is amazing (I recently ran a 162km trail race in 22 hrs 57 mins, and the watch still had 60% battery remaining), the user interface is easy to use and edit, and the GPS tracking is accurate. It has the added bonus of being very good looking, meaning it looks as good in the office as it does on the trails.
MISSION TEA CO.
Founded by adventurer and explorer Tom, Athletic Tea was created to find a solution to the energy slumps and sugar crashes resulting from other performance drinks and caffeine in general. Slow, steady release energy is achieved for athletes through a unique blend of ingredients, specifically designed for athletes. Energise, Perform and Recover are the main focus blends, with both traditional pyramid style bags and Matcha powder packs available.
I´m a big fan of this company, and have been using their tea since the beginning of 2018. My personal favourite is the Cocoa & Ginger tea, which is amazing for early mornings and long meetings. You can find out more by visiting there site here.
Oofos shoes have been around for a little while now, and when I first came across the brand I wasn´t 100% convinced. They were recommended by a friend who had a stress fracture at the time, as basically super comfy flip flops. I tried them and am happy to say I am a complete convert, these things are literally the most comfortable things you will wear. I´m not just saying that.
I always stick a pair in my bag for post marathon or especially ultras. There is nothing quite like taking your shoes and socks off after 20+ hours of running and slipping these bad boys on. Give them a go, you won´t be disappointed. Check out their site here.
