I have officially switched allegiance to Brooks shoes after a long and happy marraige with my Saucony Omni's I have decided to see what the fuss is about with the new Brooks DNA...cradle type thing - apparently it is like a memory foam for your feet...sounds good. With a load of race vouchers in my hand I ventured to Up and Running in Darlington and made the purchase of a nice shiny pair of Brooks Adrenaline GTS 11s. No miles yet run in them but a quick check on the treadmill gait analysis confirmed the shoes are a good un.
BUT........on closer inspection out of the box what do I find...they have only gone and put two sets of laces in the box...A nice corporate grey pair that match the shoes very nicely...and a bright yellow pair that say "look at me I am making a statement!"
After much dilemma and soul searching I asked the family....Wife Alison said grey....Youngest Son - got to be yellow they look cool....Oldest son....Couldn't care less - running is rubbish anyway!
What have I decided ?....one of each...Yes I am going to go totally crazy and wear one grey and one yellow! I know I know it's a bit mad but hey life is about living right?
Cant wait to get stuck into the viewing of the World Champs from Daegu this week...Go Mo Go Mo! I will be looking out for other crazy dudes wearing shoelaces of different colours!
Happy Running Folks!
