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.

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.

Tracksmith Apparel Review

I’ve been around the running industry for many years now and it’s been fun to watch the running brand Tracksmith.  Tracksmith is an independent running apparel brand. That means you can only buy Tracksmith through their company website or in their shop in New England. Do I wish they were in local running stores? Of course.

Court House Diner (Cape May Court House)

Recently I got take out at the Court House Diner in Cape May Court House).  It’s somewhat confusing, but Cape May Court House is a town in New Jersey just north of Cape May. This wasn’t just any take out though; it took strategic planning. My husband and I flew down to the Wildwood Airport then rode our bikes up to Cape May House Court House (roughly 9 miles).  Planning this specific trip was why I decided to start biking. I honestly didn’t know if I could ride the 18 miles round trip!
