I’m SO excited to finally be able to share this with you all, but now that its officially official here we go: I’m joining the 2015-2016 Asics Ambassador Team! This is the very first Asics ambassador team ever and I’m incredibly happy to be a part of it. It’s my favorite fitness brand and my closet is filled with their shoes and clothes (well, more like my closet is jam packed. I may have a shopping problem)–they’re the best and get me through every season of running.
As you know, I was part of Team Asics last year with an amazing group of bloggers when I trained for and ran the 2014 NYC Marathon. Not only was this my very first marathon, which makes it extra special, but because I ran with Asics it was absolutely one of the best experiences of my life. Because of that I’m incredibly thrilled to be an official ambassador for the company that has been such a supporter of my running career!
Asics and I have a long love story together, and yes its serious. I only run races in Asics shoes, in particular my favorite shoes are the Gel Pursue for long runs–these are the shoes I ran the NYC Marathon in and plan to run the 2015 Chicago Marathon in in a week and a half. And at the moment, for shorter runs my top shoes are the Excel-33 and the brand new Gel Quantum. I love them all, and the fun colors that they’re offered in make them that much cooler!
Here’s a few of my favorite posts from last year about being part of Team Asics:
NYC Marathon Expo & Asics Pre-Race Shakeout
Marathoning With Asics
Asics in Central Park with Coach Kastor
Introducing the Asics Gel Quantum
Asics Gel Pursue Giveaway (giveaway closed, but I reviewed the shoes)
So what does this mean for you guys?
Well, this partnership means I’ll be reviewing the latest products and bringing you a first hand look at Asics shoes, clothes, and gear this year. And for a fun spin on it, they’ll be some giveaway opportunities every now and then for you to score some swag for yourself! Just sharing the Asics love. Trust me, this partnership will bring some cool content to this blog for you to enjoy. And who knows if I decide to run a race again with Asics, in which case I’ll be bringing you all the info about training. This is going to be one fun year for us all!
And since this is a team, I wanted to share with you my fellow Asics Ambassadors for you to follow. I am honored to be part of such an amazing group of people and can’t wait for all the exciting things to come this year as part of the 2015-2016 Asics Ambassador Team!
