New Shoe Day!
One of the coolest things about me and Beeker is that we are “official” shoe testers for Runner’s World Magazine. Pretty sweet, huh? We get a new pair of running shoes to wear 4 times each year. The shoes are samples from the shoe companies of shoes that will be coming out in the next season. We wear them for about a month, evaluate them, and fill out a survey for Runner’s World- who uses them in their “Shoe Guide” quarterly feature. It is a pretty sweet deal to get free sneaks each season- it works out perfectly because we always get our new shoes right around the time that I need them. Being testers has been such an incredible blessing to us, since we run so much and go through so many pairs of shoes, we have been able to save so much money.
I love new shoe day!
Here are my new kicks (Asics):
And, here are Beeker’s (Brooks):
I am particularly excited tonight because Beeker’s new sneaks have motivated him to start running with me in the morning again…yessssss. I love early morning runs outside; however, I will only venture out at 4 am if Brian is with me. I’m a wuss with stuff like that. Tomorrow morning I have 8 miles on tap- my longest distance before work! Words cannot even begin to express how happy I will be to run outside instead on my awful treadmill. For it to work, I MUST be out the door and running AT 4 am- which means an early bedtime tonight. Having new shoes to run in will be great motivation to get up and out early tomorrow morning.
How often do you get new running/workout shoes?
Are you scared to run alone in the dark?
