Getting Geared Up

I have a crazy cool announcement!

After reading some posts on other blogs (sorry I don't recall which or I would link to them) about being sponsored by certain groups or testing out products for companies. I decided that since I love my Brooks sneakers so much, it was worth an email to ask them if they wanted me to review for them. And guess what?! They do! I have spoken with a very nice gentleman who sent me out some apparel, which arrived today! I will be wearing one of the shirts he sent for my speed work tonight, and I will let you know how it goes.

And! I entered into a contest on 5 Miles Past Empty's site for compression socks. Compression socks are supposed to make a huge difference in how well you run in them and how fast you recover after. It would be great to win a pair since I don't know anything about the brands out there and they are expensive. Keep your fingers crossed for me!


  1. That is soooo cool that Brooks sent you stuff! I'm looking forward to your review!

  2. That is really cool! I won't be able to be a tester for anyone until I'm stateside again :(
    But by then, I will [hopefully] but a super awesome runner, and I'll have companies begging me to try their stuff.
    Psh, yeah right... But a girl can dream, right? LOL

  3. Oh my! I enticed them by telling them where I was with my running. I told them that my blog is new and that I have been attracting a lot of readers that are similar to me, which is really helpful and inspiring. We are the up and coming! :) as for being a super awesome runner, A. you already are B. When you return to the States your blog will have tons of followers and companies will be coming to you for reviews! ;)
