A Run In My Brooks

History

Brooks running shoes were created in 1914. The company has been in the top three running shoe companies since the 1970's. In the beginning, Brooks struggled to sustain a quality market. A new manager came in the 1960's and the company started to grow. Now it is one of the top running companies in the world. Brooks took off when they started adding extra support to the bottom of the feet. They also have one of the widest variety of shoes from trainers to spikes to flats. Overall, Brooks has been given a 94% satisfaction rating on their shoes.

A Day In My Shoes

First I wake up at 5:30 to get ready to run. After that I retrieve my Brooks and go outside and get in my truck. I drive to McMillan to run. I hop out of the truck and stretch. Then I go run 6 miles( 2 hard, 1 easy, 3 hard). When I get home, I eat some eggs, a bagel with peanut butter, and a banana. Then I go off to work till 4 o'clock. After work, I get my Brooks and run in my neighborhood. I run 4 more miles easy. Then I eat a very green dinner with a steak. That's a day in my Brooks.

Relationship With My Shoes

The reason I chose these shoes is because they are the shoes I run in almost every day after school. I have trained a lot in them and have worn them down so much that I will be getting a new pair of Brooks for track season. They also have prevented me from getting shin splints or any major injury. My Brooks have made my first cross country season a success.
