Still having link issues- urrrg! The good news is- MBE has made it 30 weeks!!!
Every Monday, at the end of the current weeks M.B.E answer, I will post a question for the following week. This way you can cue your post for Monday if you wish. If Monday doesn’t work for you, you can still play along any day of the week that works best. If you want to play along, all you have to do is post the question and your answer on your own blog. Link your post to my blog so that I know you have participated, and in the following weeks post, I will link all the participant blogs from the prior week.
This Weeks Topic: Your First Kicks
This Weeks Question: All runners have a connection to their shoes. Tell the story behind how you came to love the kicks you’re in- what were your first shoes? What do you wear now? Do you stick to one shoe or change it up?
Like most people, when I first started running, I wore basic running shoes. I am pretty sure they were New Balance. I was having all kinds of trouble to my shins/calves so on a recommendation from my Uncle, I went to the local running store.
And that is where the Brooks Adrenalines and I fell in love.
I tried on at least three pairs that day…I didn’t really like any of them. Then, the last pair they brought out, “good for overpronators” were the Brooks. I had never even heard of Brooks. I loved them the second I had them on- and haven’t wavered since because any time I do try on a different pair of shoes, I always come back to the Brooks. And always the Adrenalines.
I usually have two pairs rotating at all times. One pair, the new ones, are always for race training, where as the old ones are for just wearing around or to the gym. I usually change out my shoes every 350-400 miles or so, give or take.
