Gear pick: USN Diet Whey bars

By Annie Rice on in Gear

With a soft peanut butter filling, decent chew and chocolate-flavour coating, protein bars don’t often taste as delicious USN’s latest Peanut Butter Chocolate Brownie Diet Whey Bars. Often chocolate-flavour bars lack the chocolate hit I crave, but I'm a big fan of these - though I'm aware that just because ...

Gear Pick: IT7S Wireless Sport Headphones

By Annie Rice on in Gear

Annie says: Running with music is a controversial issue in the industry, but I for one don’t often leave the house without a trusty playlist for company. I didn’t realise how much of a nuisance my standard headphones were until I was introduced to IT7’s wireless sport headphones. Previous battles with wires ...
