    Review: Rapha’s Trail Pants & Knee Pads Are Impossibly Comfy

    Who remembers mountain biking before riding pants were a thing? Our shorts were too long, our socks were too short, and I’m pretty sure I was too cold and wet all the time. Smart riders had been wearing heavy moto-style pants for years, of course, but these days we’ve got plenty of bike-specific options to choose from, including the new $180 USD Trail pants from Rapha that are reviewed below. Rapha is known for its high-end stretchy road kit and classy colors, and 2021 saw them debut an entire range of clothing for mountain bikers. I took a closer

    UB research uncovers previously unknown aspects of running shoe design

    BUFFALO, N.Y. – A University at Buffalo researcher has some good news for athletes and fitness enthusiasts who favor thick, heavily cushioned running shoes. Although these shoes are increasingly popular because they provide comfort and a high degree of shock absorbing protection, those benefits were thought to come at the expense of increased overall leg stiffness, which altered a runner’s normal stride and could increase muscle fatigue. Plenty of research suggests just such a result when running on a compliant surface, like a synthetic rubber track, but no one had actually tested how the cushioned midsole of a running shoe

    Read an Exclusive Excerpt From ‘Didn’t We Almost Have It All: In Defense of Whitney Houston’

    In the summer of 1980, Robyn Crawford was working at the East Orange Community Development Center as a youth counselor when she was stopped in her tracks by an unfamiliar face. The young woman was wearing a silk plaid blouse, slim-fitting shorts, red-striped Adidas Gazelles, and a visor with the Red Cross logo stitched on it. She introduced herself by her whole name—Whitney Elizabeth Houston—which tickled Robyn. They both had taken jobs as youth counselors and got to know each other while working with kids in Columbian Park near Whitney’s family house in Doddtown. It was a bond that formed
