  • Best piece of advice: you are your own best coach—listen to your body.

    Ian D Landau
  • Best advice for running is to set a goal and move toward it without it becoming your identity. Find joy in the journey and grind. Work on your overall fitness, not just how much pounding your legs can take.

    Dustin Walker
  • Long time runner here, a major key to improvement is core strength. If you want to improve running and running longevity, find new ways to strengthen your core and interface with your body (yoga helps a lot!). If you don’t think you need to improve your core, then you DEFINITELY need do!

    James Martin
  • Graves PX 5" Shorts & Torch FX 3” liner

    Ian L
  • As I have gotten back into running and lost 50lbs the things that have helped me the most through the process are: Going longer than I think I can by using a walk/run strategy, entering events way over my head than grinding it out, and using quality gear.

    Scott Gittleson
  • Every day and every race is different. The 50k you ran in December in the Pacific Northwest had different needs than the 50k you run summer. Be aware of that not only for race day, but in training as well. Always be prepared for anything and everything.

    Ben Perri
  • Best advice is to listen to your body if you need to take a rest day do it! The last thing you want to do is overtrain or even push yourself, your body to a uncomfortable feeling. I have been running for just a year now and hearing different techniques from hydration/nutrition to workouts and form Really Helps! Everything helps at the end when you take the time to work on it and you disciplined your self.

    Lucas Garcia
  • Hoping to pick up another pair of graves 7” or the green Henley. Can’t go wrong! Best advice I ever got was get comfortable going slower. I needed to increase my miles more than I need to lose 10 seconds off of my 5k pr. Being okay with people seeing me run even slower than normal was key for me increasing my range and it impacted my shorter run times better than I expected.

    Mike Lewis
  • Best advice? Don’t quit. Don’t sleep in or skip the evening run. Don’t listen to your brain telling you that you can stop before you hit your goal. Don’t quit adding a little more distance or a little quicker pace. Just don’t quit!

    Mike Turner
  • Best info I have received and implemented from cach Nate is to take smaller strides so as not to overeach. Started working with the metronome to get the cadance right. What a differce it has made to my run

  • It’s great to have watches and gadgets to log your run. Don’t forget to take time to enjoy being outside and your entire run in general!

  • Just be patient and consistently pays off!

    Carl Jackson
  • I would get a couple pairs of the new Graves PX 5 inch shorts and a new running cap!

    Justin Radcliffe
  • Advice-just keep running

    Josh Hoines
  • Mx hooded shirt and a hat for sure

  • skyes PX 5" jet black!!

  • I would get the PX 5’s ,& 3" base liner, anything left & I’d get the Henley. I love the pockets in the 5’s ,& I have the Pyrenees top that I can’t take off! Love your gear…

    Jeremy Desch
  • I’d choose the Henley. One in each color!

    Daniel Couch
  • I’d buy a new hat (all of them are amazing). Black Sykes shorts. And a new black Henley. All my other path stuff is super durable but it’s nice to have another pair when they get stinky.

    Aaron Ophaug
  • Run again, run again, jiggity jig. I’d score Graves PX7 w/ Tahoe CL 8” liners (2 liners), & I’d do it so quick. No friction, no chaffing, all so comfy and slick, I find myself asking: “did these shorts make me quick?” Now quick as a bird & light as a feather, I never have know a short system that pairs better “together”! But a working class guy has to stagger his buying, so a sweet Ben Franklin GC would sure have me smilin’! :-)

    Mike T

  • Graves shorts and a few different liners!

    Brent Hanson
  • The new Graves shorts!

    David in MN
  • Seriously… no chafe… do I need to say more! My first 100 miler was Umstead 100 this past April. Changed shoes… changed socks… NEVER had to change shorts (Graves PX w Tahoe liners)… NO Chafing in my nether regions. Thank you SO much Path Projects!

    John Goldfield
  • Oh man, decisions decisions. I’d go with Pyrenees hoodie and 7” graves px short. I’d throw in a baseline on my own dime!

  • I’d start with shorts and liners and I can always use another running hat.

    Naoya Wada
  • I’d buy a pair of graves shorts and some more base liners. I love the torch liner!

    Robert McMillan
  • I’d snag a pair of the new GRAVES PX 5" SHORT so I could stick my phone in a side pocket and not crush it while I’m using a leg machine at the gym. Because I just used the last of my running budget for the year on 4 new pairs of SYKES PX 5" SHORT…three days before you announced these.

    Alex Hamborsky
  • I would buy the 3” torch liner + 5” Sykes short + pyrennes hoody!

  • I’d buy all of the hats! They’re the best!

    Jason Sippel
  • All the component layering pieces!

  • I just ordered my first pair of Path shorts, and I really like them! I got the Sykes 5" shorts and I think if I won this, I would try one of the 7" pairs, probably in the Graves model line. Also, the hoody looks great too!

    Brad Patterson
  • Definitely shorts, but also a hoodie!

    Tim McCleskey
  • Def a bunch of the new px5 for the Tokyo marathon

  • Definitely need to pick up another Pyrenees hoodie. I’ve worn the crap out of the one I have and it would be nice to add a new one to the rotation. Thanks!
