  • Heading to Boston - Nathan Brown


    The final of the three pre-Boston SKORA ambassador interviews after Jeremy and Tad, here's Nathan "Coach Beast" Brown!

    How and why did you start running? 

    My brothers signed up for a local city track meet, so I signed up too! The competition of foot races was unlike any other sport I had played up to that point or since! I love running but I feed off competition

    You’re running the 2015 Boston Marathon. This is quite the feat and requires qualification. What would you say are your top 3 ...

  • Heading to Boston: Tad Kardis

    Continuing with the Boston Marathon bound ambassador interviews, Tad is up next!

    Tell the readers a bit about yourself. How and why did you start running?

I ran in my 20s and 30s to stay in shape, sort of. Approaching 40, I resolved to get rid of 40 pounds that had mysteriously accumulated on my torso, so I started running ...

    The single piece upper on TEMPO is an ...

    I am a 38 year old Graphic Designer living is Stephens City, Virginia with my wife and 2 boys. It wasn't until I was 35 years old that I realized I was a runner; and a pretty good one. It has been a wild ride ever since.
