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.

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.

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.

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.

Saucony Endorphin Pro Review

Saucony Endorphin Pro Shoe Review:

The Saucony Endorphin Pro is Saucony’s version of the carbon plated shoe. It’s one of the more highly anticipated carbon fiber plate shoes to come out. I’ve reviewed the Nike Next%, Hoka Carbon Rocket, Hoka Carbon X, as well as the New Balance Fuelcell TC, and next up is the Saucony Endorphin Pro.
