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.

Brooks Hyperion Elite Shoe Review:

I had high hopes for the Brooks Hyperion Elite. As you can tell by the first line, the hopes weren’t exactly met.

GU Energy Gels: Differences Between Roctane and Regular

As it gets hotter and more humid, the next few product reviews are geared towards hydration and fueling.  Many people are familiar with an energy gel.  There are plenty of brands out there, but GU was the first. Innovation is all we know. GU created the first energy gel over 20 years ago. It also has the widest variety.

There are dozens of articles about: “why runners should take energy gels” and the proper fueling.  I won’t go too deep into it. Plus, we are talking fueling in the newsletter this week.

In short, energy gels replenish your depleted carbohydrate stores when running—any endurance athlete from runners to swimmers or cycling benefits from taking fueling during training and racing.
