Best cities for hipsters

What? No Sacramento on the list? How bummed all of those gauge-eared, skinny-jeans-wearing, fixie-bike-riding midtowners will be. The magazine's top three are no surprise: Seattle, Portland, San Francisco. One surprise: Austin, Texas, ranks seventh – behind Providence, R.I.

FUEL

EAS Lean 15

There are plenty of protein powder supplements lining the walls of markets. Many have the consistency – and taste – of ground chalk. This product tastes much smoother but still gives workout-recovering athletes all the amino acids they need from quick- digesting whey and slow-digesting micellar casein.

THE LIST

• 9 Traits of the Ideal Road Companion

We like No. 1: "They are a camel: The Ideal Road Trip Passenger needs to stop to urinate at the exact same rate that the car needs to stop to refuel. Or less than that."

GEAR

Dirty Girl Gaiters

www.dirtygirlgaiters.com

Gaiters are the coverings trail runners wear over their shoes to keep sticks and dirt out of their shoes. For many years, they came in either boring colors (black) or manly designs (camouflage). Dirty Girl adds "style and sass" with designs such as a pink leopard print called "Fetish" and a skull design cleverly called "DNF" – that's "did not finish," folks.

THE QUOTE

Ultra runner Dean Karnazes talking to TrailRunner magazine while running on Mount Tamalpais: "Our house is on that hill over there. When I run up to Tam, I bring this little safety mirror, and signal my kids, and they're like, 'Hey, Dad's up there!' "
