Brooks Hyperion Tempo Shoe Review

The Brooks Hyperion Tempo is the lightweight, but cushioned trainer partner to the Brooks Hyperion Elite (the carbon plated shoe). In my opinion, the Brooks Hyperion Tempo is a better shoe for a lower price.  If you are familiar with the original Hyperion, it was a lightweight, responsive ride, racing shoe. It was designed as a true racing flat with a performance fit.

The new Brooks Hyperion Tempo is similar but has more cushion and is also more durable. It’s still light weight and responsive. Now, the Brooks Hyperion Tempo is more of a training shoe versus racing shoe.

The Argument for Building a Base For Running (Now)

It doesn’t take a genius to know that we are in the middle of a pandemic.  Lives lost, businesses closed, and livelihoods broken—sports and racing fall in the least of priorities with that.

Hiking Kittatinny Valley State Park

Recently my husband and I flew to the Aeroflex-Andover Airport. The Aeroflex-Andover Airport might be my new favorite general aviation airport because it’s walkable to Kittatinny Valley State Park.  It’s less than a half mile from the airport to Kittatinny Valley State Park and in fact owned by the NJ Forest Fire Service.

Sparta Classic Diner (Sparta)

Recently I ordered takeout from the Sparta Classic Diner in Sparta, New Jersey. The same people own the Sparta Classic Diner as the Orangetown Classic Diner in Orangetown, NY (seriously a must go), Northvale Classic Diner and the Tenafly Classic Diner.  All of these “classic diners” have been good and I had high hopes for the Sparta Classic Diner.
