If You Ski the East, This is the Type of Ski You Need Underfoot

There’s no beating around the bush: the snow out East is hard. Not for nothing do we know it as the “Ice Coast,” and locals will confirm that bulletproof literally means ice so firm a bullet would ricochet off of it. The East sees microclimates, lake-effect snowstorms, and Nor’easters that produce copious amounts of snow. […]

Why Do I Care What I Wear in the Woods?

One of the most formidable villains of my childhood was Parent Trap baddie Meredith Blake. When Meredith joins our more down-to-earth California heroes (played by Lindsay Lohan and Lindsay Lohan, respectively) on a third-act camping trip, she dons a spandex outfit with a little zip-up sports bra, matching leggings, and a comically large Evian water […]

How Elite Runners Train When They’re Pregnant

When Elle Purrier St. Pierre, the 27-year-old Olympic miler and multiple American record-holder, announced her pregnancy a few weeks ago, fans were surprised. I was too, even though I recently wrote about a study suggesting that pregnancy doesn’t alter the career trajectory of elite runners. Old habits die hard, and the knee-jerk assumption that motherhood […]

In a World of FKTs, I Prefer to Go Slow. Really Slow.

I’m not a fan of bragging, especially about so-called accomplishments in the outdoors. Smashing records, claiming titles, putting my name down in the books for posterity, all this strikes me as utterly ridiculous. Just this once, though, I feel compelled to toot the badass horn, trumpet the awesomeness of where I’ve been and what I’ve […]

We Need More Cooking Shows Like ‘Chefs vs. Wild’

The restaurant industry never sleeps. And seemingly so, neither do the employees: when the doors open, orders begin to roll in and the sounds of the kitchen come alive, pots clicking, fires burning, and the oven timer ringing off the chain.

I Made Empanadas While Running the Most Productive Half-Marathon of My Life

Someone once told me that every runner, at some point, confronts the urge to run a half-marathon, broken up into smaller segments over the course of an entire day, without leaving their own neighborhood. OK, that’s not true at all—nobody ever said that. But I did exactly that last weekend, because of a YouTube video, […]
