New Balance Zante Launch Party and Dr William Davis Tour Giveaway!
It is so hard to believe that we are nearing the end of March. To be completely honest with you, I am looking forward to seeing the end of it. March has not been gentle to me and I am grateful to put winter, stress and some life frustrations behind me and look towards a fantastic April full of the Boston marathon, a nice taper and celebrating spring and fathers. The normal.
Last evening, I headed to Running Works in Guelph to celebrate the launch of the New Balance Zante shoe which will be the beauty that I am racing Boston in. I tried it out on a short run with some of the other New Balance athletes and will be incorporating it into my regular training program to break it in for Boston.
It was a great event and it was awesome to learn more about the shoe. I will be doing a review after I train in it a bit more, but this is what New Balance is saying about it.
It was awarded Competitor Magazine’s road shoe of the year as it feels like a second skin and offers extra heel to toe transition. I will need all the free speed I can get at Boston so I am excited to use this shoe!
We went out on a short run and reconvened at the shop for prizes, food and a party!
Andrew Catton is the owner of the store and is so passionate in his support to the local running community. The huge turnout to the event was a testament to that.
I am so fortunate to be able to pick the brains of these incredible athletes and I love hearing what they do for training, race plans and nutrition. I know Alex through my day job as he is connected to a company that we deal with so whenever I see that he is at the offices, I spend every moment I can chatting about injury prevention, periodization and nutrition. I’m currently reading a book he recommended on injury prevention and will do a review soon. He first got to know me as the “two stress fracture girl”, but thankfully, that is changing as I am healthy and strong in training this year.
Speaking of changes, my changing schedule is your gain because I have a meeting that came up that I cannot get out of this Friday night, so I am giving away two tickets to see Dr. William Davis at Goodness Me!
Leave a comment letting me know you are interested and I will announce the winner tomorrow.
Remember, you can get $10 off tickets with the code WBLL. Just type it in at the check out and it will be taken off your price.
What shoe are you running in right now?
