Friday Giveaway: Brooks running shoes

Brooks running shoes


Brooks has always had a solid reputation for making amazing shoes for runners. -They offer different shoes for different styles of running. They work on the cutting edge of technology to make sure that the shoes runners wear protect them from injury and help them run faster, longer and better. Pretty awesome, right? Well, they have kicked things up a notch by making their award-winning Trance shoe environmentally friendly by adding BioMoGo, the world's first biodegradable midsole. The result? Tons of cush wrapped in a pristine, new, "green" package. We have tested this shoe on ourselves and our husbands and we happen to love it! Brooks also offers some sweet running shoes for active kids. If you have been looking for motivation to get yourself in running shape, the Trance 8 might just do the trick! And, for those days when you just need comfortable shoes to chase the kids at the park, and push the shopping cart with gusto, you are in business in these shoes. Maybe if you are feeling guilty for missing a workout, you can ponder the fact that these running shoes will biodegrade 50x faster than the average pair of running shoes in a landfill and feel a bit better about yourself. These truly are shoes that are healthier for you (when you use them for an active lifestyle) AND the environment!

Brooks will be giving away a pair of these "green" shoes to a lucky mama who can kick start the new year with some motivation to hit the pavement! To enter, leave a comment answering the following question:

What song or music motivates you to get moving?

  11. Well, I'm usually running with my two kiddos (3 yrs and 1 yr) so therefore I spend my time answering and conversing with them. When I get a chance I would love to load up my Nano with some audio books for the times (though few and far between) I go to the gym.

  19. When I'm running, the music that keeps me moving is the wind rushing past my ears. There's so much "noise" in my head sometimes while I'm at work and at home, and running gives me the opportunity to leave it all behind!
