Santa came early, and he was wearing a Brooks t-shirt

My shipment of Brooks shoes arrived so last Monday I jammed up to Fleet Feet Sports Seattle and picked them up. When I got home I took some time to check out my loot.

Run happy indeed!

Since I already have some lighter weight shoes for the trail and road I got some meat and potatoes shoes this time round.

First off all I needed a good road trainer. Enter the Brooks Transcend.

I'm super excited about this shoe! Brooks calls it a stability shoe but to me it's the most stable neutral shoe I have seen. I have worn it twice and so far I am loving the comfort and lateral stability without a rigid feeling. Those guide rails really seem to living up to all the hype.

Next up I needed a new pair of everyday trail shoes. Enter the Brooks Cascadia 9.

I wore out my last pair of Cascadias, literally, so I know these work for me. I'm excited to try the latest iteration.

Thanks to Brooks, Fleet Feet Sports Seattle and the Seattle Running Club for making all this possible! I'll see you on the road. And trails.
