Polar products have measured every step I've taken over the last few years accurately and reliably. It's a comfort knowing that after a training session I'll be able to objectively monitor what that training has taken out of me, and continually tweak my process based on that data to ensure I get to my next starting line fit, rested, and ready.
Noah, from Indianapolis, Indiana, never qualified for the state meet in high school but decided to continue his running career at DePauw University anyway. After a few years of soul-searching post grad, Noah moved to Boulder, Colorado to pursue becoming a professional distance runner. Since doing so, he has improved vastly in distances from 5k to the marathon. Outside of running, Noah plays guitar in a band called Bury Mia, hosts a podcast called D3 Glory Days, and spends his day hanging out with his fiancée Emma and their two rescue dogs Sarah and Chandler.
