This morning I was freaking out thinking I was going to get scurvy because we had NO FRUIT in the house. How did Ben survive?!
Since we’re on the topic, let’s get the other eats out of the way. I made a super quick trip to TJ’s for more fruit because the scurvy attack was coming back around noon. So two plums and one massive salad made up lunch.
I recently was asked to be a Brooks Blog Ambassador. Since the Brooks Ghost are my “core shoe” I jumped at the chance!
They had a super awesome event in New York two weeks ago to teach the ambassadors about their new line up of shoes. Unfortunately, I already knew I was going to NY for the ING shoot so I had to pass.
She took me through the new aspects of the latest Glycerin and Ghost 5 – their neutral shoes. It was super interesting because I wear a neutral shoe and could literally feel and see the changes between the Ghost 4 and 5.
Anyways, she also told me all about their new Pure Project line. This is super exciting! I’ll talk about it more in a few weeks after I’ve run in the shoes a bit, but I am super jazzed about it.
The Glycerin and Ghost are both neutral shoes, but they have some specific differences. The Glycerin has more cushion and I would consider it a bit heartier. So if you’re coming from a more stability shoe or just like more cushion / are harder on your shoes that’s the one for you.
You can find out what shoe / type of shoe is best for you after answering a few questions on the Brooks Find Your Soul mate Page ( I love that it’s called that).
I personally think shoes are the most important piece of gear you wear – so make sure you know why type of shoe is right for you and test them out before committing.
I just realized today is the last day our Disneyland passes are valid until September so I’m going to try and get Ben to go after work! I’ll see you tomorrow.
