Hey guys! As you can guess by the title of this post, I have some great news! I have been selected by my favorite brands ASICS to be a 2015-2016 ASICS ambassador! It’s been hard keeping the secret for a month but I am finally allowed to spill it!
There are going to be some exciting things coming up this year with ASICS that I will be involved in, and I will share them as they come, but think product reviews, giveaways, I will get the chance to go to events, etc. Right know just know I AM SO EXCITED!
ASICS was the very first shoe that I bought when I got fitted for running shoes back in 2010.
I tried other brands throughout the years, but ended up with many different foot and leg injuries. Why on earth I thought it was a good idea to mess with a good thing, I will never know.
I think I have worn about every color of ASICS shoe there is, and I love all the options!
I have a high arch and I slightly over pronate, but I also need a bit of a wider toe box. I guess I have high maintenance feet?
I am currently LOVING the Gel Quantum 360’s!
ASICS not only has amazing shoes, but they have other great workout apparel as well.
I had the privilege of running the LA marathon with team ASICS this past March, and while it was a tough race in 90 degree weather, it was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. I may have only been just a little over 2 months postpartum when they emailed me asking if I wanted to run, but I of course accepted! I was on a high for days. I couldn’t believe the brand of the shoes that I was already running in wanted to work with me. I had reviewed shoes for them in the past, but this was big.
I felt so blessed to meet some of my running heroes and hang out in LA with such an amazing and generous brand.
I think one of my favorite things about ASICS is that they “get” bloggers. I have worked with many different brands over the past almost six years, and some did a great job at relating to and working with bloggers, and some not so much. ASICS seriously knocks. it. out. of. the. park. It has been my pleasure to promote them, it makes me want to work hard for them because they have done so much for me. I can’t wait to see what this year has in store, but I know that no matter what it will be epic with ASICS.

QOTD: Have you tried different brands of running shoes over the years? Did you end up back with the brand you started with?
