It feels like the only time I really have to talk to you is when I’m at a safe cruising altitude which lately has been too often. I’m taking advantage of this flight time to tell you some news, which you probably already figured out by now.
When I signed on to run the New York Marathon with Asics, I also signed on to be an ambassador! I’m looking forward to this partnership! I’m already in their debt for giving me such an amazing opportunity, no matter how sore I’m gonna be.
Why Asics? For me, life is changing and so are my priorities. Asics is a brand that not only has products for me but for my family too! My kids have been living in Asics for a long time now. My other big love is Asics workout gear. Their clothes transition so well; easy to wear no matter what you’re doing and while my life is all running for the next 4 weeks, I love my gym time.
Interesting fact, I’ve only run one other marathon back in 2006 (I think) and the shoes that got me through that marathon are still in my closet…retired but there. Sure they are missing some laces and might be collecting a little dust but they hold a special place in my heart for what they got me through back then. So I decided to pull them out and revisit them. I had forgotten the make and model but smiled when I saw this…
I’m taking that as a good sign.
The truth is that running right now is an equal opportunity sport. I love trying all kinds of shoes and brands because they always change and there are so many great brands out there. I just have to go with what feels right and right now, these shoes are rocking my world.
So stay with me…follow me through this New York City Marathon adventure and beyond. It’s going to be good…for you and me!
