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. Shocking, because Brooks rarely doesn’t bring their A-game.  It isn’t that I think the Brooks Hyperion Elite is a bad shoe, but I don’t know if I believe it’s a $250 shoe. Especially when the most similar shoes to the Brooks Hyperion Elite are racing flats which generally cost around $100.

Types of Summer Runners You’ll See Out

As we enter the summer months, it’s guaranteed you’ll see more runners and characters on the road.  Now with social distancing and gyms closed, many people have taken up the sport. Whether you know the runner, or don’t, you’ll begin to recognize many faces. Maybe you even fall into one of these categories (I know I do).

This follows suit from Exercisers You’ll See During Social Distancing.  Take it with a grain of salt.

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.

Private Flying to Aeroflex-Andover Airport

Recently my husband and I decided to private fly to a new airport: Aeroflex–Andover Airport (FAA 12N).  We’ve been up to Sussex County multiple times, but we’ve never flown. We’ve flown to Morristown as well as Lincoln Park, so we thought it would be fun to fly to Aeroflex–Andover Airport.

Brooks Launch 7 Shoe Review

It’s funny, I don’t try the Brooks Launch every year, and typically I only try it for limited-edition versions. I always like the Fourth of July Color and this year is no different. The Brooks Launch 7 is available in several different colors but I am a creature of habit and purchased the Brooks Launch 7 in the Fourth of July color.
