Hoka One One Bondi 7 Shoe Review

I’ve been waiting for the updated Hoka One One Bondi 7 for what feels like years. Most people that have run with me know of my love for the Hoka Bondi. Why? I like how cushioned it is, and it’s one of my favorite shoes for easy runs. Recently, it’s my go-to on the treadmill.

Make no mistake, it’s a lot of shoe. Some people find it’s too much shoe, but I like the cushion. You aren’t going to break any speed records but if you’re looking for a high cushioned and durable trainer, the Hoka Bondi 7 is great.

Types of Fall Runners You’ll See Out (Pandemic Version)

When the pandemic started, I posted Exercisers You’ll See During Social Distancing.  Now that fall is finally here; it’s time for the type of runners you’ll see when out and about this fall. It’s different in 2020 due to the lack of major marathons, but that doesn’t mean you won’t see fall exercisers out and about (hopefully social distancing).

Hoka One One Torrent 2 Shoe Review

Since moving out to California, I’ve gotten more into trail running, which is why I went with the Hoka Torrent 2. It isn’t because suddenly I love trails but because the trails are close by and I can run trails whenever I want. In New Jersey, I had to drive anywhere between 1-2 hours to get a long run on trails. Now I can drive 10 minutes or even run from my house.

With that, I needed a trail shoe. I’ve heard the Hoka Torrent 2 is a good option, so I decided to try that out. It’s a lot more firm than many trails shoes.  Many people have suggested the best use of the Hoka Torrent 2 is for racing.

When the Treadmill is a Last Resort
Running, Running Reads

When the Last Resort is the Treadmill…

First, I don’t hate the treadmill. I think it’s an incredible tool to get workouts in you “couldn’t normally get.”

Maybe you live in upstate New York when it’s -30.

Maybe you live in Florida during Hurricane season…

Maybe you live in the midwest during the tornado season.

Maybe you live out west where going outside is like smoking a pack of cigarettes.

Momentous Elite Sleep Review

Recently, I tried Momentous Elite Sleep.  Typically I’m not one who “struggles with sleep.” I don’t have a lot of caffeine after 10 am, and there aren’t many nights I “toss and turn.” Lately, I’ve found myself tossing a little more and not being able to adjust to the time zone as well as I would like.  I know, I’ve been in California for almost two months.
