Men’s Nike LunarEpic Flyknit 2: Run Free

Experienced by Kimatni D. Rawlins

It’s been a mild winter in Maryland with the first day of March being no different. Yet, as spring approaches I begin to transition back into full running mode after mountain biking, indoor spinning, and strength training during the colder months. So of course I was anxious to try out Nike’s new LunarEpic Flyknit 2 running shoe for men which I received in grey with the black swoosh along with a fresh, matching outfit. Launched in early February the 8.8-ounce shoe (size 10) currently lists for $160 at various retailers including Road Runner Sports. [Read more…]

Road Runner Sports Adventure Run

Experienced by Kyle Ayoung

The Fit Fathers crew had another great Adventure Run with Road Runner Sports at the Rockville, MD store in anticipation of Fit Fathers Day on June 19th.  June is Men’s Health Month so the monthly fun run and treasure hunt was right on point with its healthful messaging and fitness focused activities.

The goal was to run for 60 minutes while stopping at as many checkpoints as possible where each runner would earn raffle tickets for a chance to win a whopping $3,000 in prizes such as new shoes or Thule backpacks. Adidas was on deck providing runners with their latest products to test the shoe’s vitality and comfort levels. Fit Fathers hosted a fun checkpoint and had the females give us 15 push ups and the males 25 push ups. Another pit stop was at Gym Source where participants had to clock two minutes on any of the exercise machines.

The energy was vibrant and the socializing was upbeat. We look forward to the next Adventure Run in July. See you there!
