Winter, trails, darkness, and all the weather.
One last hurrah before the end of the year. Runners, get ready for a fun and festive holiday treat along the trails of Squaxin Park.
iRunFar posts a in-depth video summary (pivot to video!) of the Apple Watch Ultra and comes to the same conclusion as what I’ve been thinking too: The watch is surprisingly great for shorter weekday runs, when the possible notification from a family member can be easily be responded to right on the watch, but the overall system and different way of thinking about how an activity is tracked and recorded doesn’t instill the same confidence then using a dedicated sports watch.
And of course, the battery still doesn’t last long enough for full ‘ultra races’. But, maybe that’s just ‘range anxiety‘.
