With beach bod season around the corner (DON’T PANIC YET…), Brooks Running Company has a little infographic to inspire you to lace up your sneakers! To celebrate National Running Day on June 3, Brooks Running announced the results of its third annual Brooks Run Happy Nation report. This isn’t your average scientific running report; it goes beyond the endorphin rush to reveal new information about what makes runners tick – from the undies they don to who they’re partnering up with (both on and off the road).

Workout Wednesday with Eddie Bauer and Brooks Running

The thing about having spinal surgery, is once you get through it, you have a new lease on life. As some of you know I was in the hospital less then 2 weeks ago to get a herniated disc removed. And I can’t even begin to tell you how amazing I feel now that it’s done. It was an easy recovery and within three days of doing it I felt so much better then I did the 2 months prior when it was in my body.  And after going through it I am more committed then ever to working out, eating right and taking the best care of my body. Prior the the surgery I went to two sporting events, one with Eddie Bauer, and the other with Brooks Running and this weekend I was ready to put them on and start the recovery process. For starters it was the NYC marathon and watching those amazing warriors run through my neighborhood always gets me amped to move.


And speaking of the marathon, Brooks Running released the first limited edition marathon shoe for this years event. It’s a version of their classic Adrenaline GTS style and has lady liberty graphics on it. You can expect more marathon themed kicks coming soon for big races like Boston and other cities.

Another accessory, I’m super excited about is Eddie Bauer Zen Tote, it has all of these awesome pockets and straps for your yoga matte. While I’m still not allowed to do a lot of yoga poses and get back in the classroom, one of my favorite things is to take my matte to the waterfront and stretch. Their Movement leggings are also AWESOME! They suck everything in and don’t stretch out. I have two pairs and have pretty much lived in them through my recovery. Both of these items are on sale on eddiebauer.com! And for all you fitness buffs, get a sneak peek at their Motion collection for next spring: eddiebauerpr.com/motionguide

Brooks Running Shoes Next Generation of Sneakers: Pure Drift

You don’t need to be a marathon runner to see that Brooks sure knows how to make a good shoe. Wednesday I got a sneak peek at Brooks Running’s “Pure Drift” – the newest design of the Pure Project line available in the fall. Drift boasts a flex groove sole which mimics the bare foot’s natural motion. It is the lightest weight shoe of the line, weighing in at only 5.1oz! The Pure Project collection was created to give runners more than just a way to exercise but an experience.

Not only were the shoes amazing, but Brooks has developed special night safety apparel that allows drivers to recognize a person in motion by outlining the silhouette of the figure.

My favorite part of the evening was the gait analysis station where the facilitator made me run on a treadmill for 30 seconds in order to measure my gait. By recording my movement he was able to calculate the degree and direction that my foot tilts and suggest the right kind of shoe for me!

{Yes, this is actually a picture of my feet in motion!}

180 degrees is a well balanced foot. I, on the other hand, have awfully flat feet, so shoes with the most support we’re suggested for me.

I came away with a fun goodie bag and stronger appreciation for the design of running shoes. This is the perfect motivator set to start getting me back on the road running.

The average price for Brooks running shoes run from $90-$140. For more information visit BrooksRunning.com
