So I realized in my early days of running, as in last year, that footwear is the single most important thing you can do to ensure successful, safe, and comfortable running and training. Clothing matters, but the shoe is king. Which is perfect because I LOVE shoe shopping. So a friend of mine recommended Asics and that has been primarily the brand I have gone to ever since. I have narrow feet and ankles, but I need a wider toe box. I’ve grown up having issues with my feet, so finding a shoe that fits perfectly, provides lasting support, and doesn’t cause pain is a pretty phenomenal feeling. I ran my first race in Asics and I am so grateful I did!
If you are in any way considering a new brand, they are one I respect, they have quality items, and the fit and feel are consistently good. So now you’re in luck, and you can thank me when you win, because Asics is having their Gear for the Year Sweepstakes. $5000 worth of Asics gear could be yours! Enter daily through March 31st! I love spreading the word about deals and sweepstakes (what can I say, I love getting a lot for, well, nothing, but at least very little), so be prepared.
Giveaway Wednesday has a nice ring to it… too bad I don’t have anything to giveaway!
