Endorsed by Brooks!

Thank you, thank you – autographs at the end of the presentation please.  I decided to adopt an official sponsor and seek endorsement deals for the 2017-2018 racing season.

I’m happy to say that Brooks Running has decided to endorse me this season, their support has been fantastic and a welcome addition to the KenStandsOnThings Raceteam.

I’ve been running for the last two years and have had my share of running shoes.  I started out with Nike, and found them to perform very well.  The Bike running community is pretty strong and was happy to follow other Nike Runners. Always looking to change things up, I switched to New Balance.  My New Balance shoes were a breath of fresh air, and did me well through a handful of 5 and 15Ks.  The New Balance community was a little more uptight, and I felt welcomed in a weird “this is my cousin tagging along with me” to your popular cousin’s friend’s party.   After the New Balance stint, I jumped to Mizuno running shoes.  I fell in love with my Mizunos, they were light and airy and packed a powerful punch when I had to dig deep. But noticed that they lacked the sense of community that I felt with my other running shoes.

Fast forward to Brooks Running Shoes. The sense of community is strong from Brooks and they are all too happy to reach out and be a part of my running experience.  Not to mention the Launch 4’s I picked up super awesome and a great running shoe. The Launches feel light and springy and during my runs I can still feel the ground beneath me. Since I need a neutral running shoe I’m super picky about groundfeel and cushioning.  If a shoe is too soft or lacks ground control I end up injuring myself, so when I laced on these Brooks and hit the road, I was pleasantly surprised.  So, now that I’m endorsed you probably are thinking about striking a deal with them as well – head on over to The Big Endorsement Deal

Anyway, what shoes do you prefer? Let me know in the comments and share your reviews! I’m always interested to see what other people are running in these days.
