A little plug...

....is in order for one of my favorite running-wear companies!

After reading about, and chuckling along with, my clothing woes....the Director of Online Marketing for Brooks contacted me last week with an offer I couldn't refuse!

To go along with some of my other Brooks apparel, soon I'll be the happy recipient of these great pants ~
These are the Brooks Motion Crop pants, which I thought would suit my needs the best at this current time.

Meredith, from Brooks, actually recommended these after reading my post ~

The Vapor Dry 2 Capris ~ but being spandex-shy as you all know I am ~ I opted for the first ones that may be suited fine for training runs or casual wear, yet not necessarily for racing. Anyone looking for some great racing pants should give these a whirl ~ they sound great!!!

So a big thanks to Meredith and Brooks Running for finding my blog and contacting me!! I can't wait to try out my new digs!!!

Wow, that is great that they contacted you. I think you would look fine in the spandex also. You are a distance runner and you should be prould of that.
