Thanks to Brooks Sports (again!).

Once again it's time to give a special mention to my kit sponsors Brooks Sports. In the last few weeks they've sent me a few pairs of my favourite running shoes (Brooks Glycerin) and base layer tops (Brooks Equilibrium). I'm ever so grateful for their continued support and as this run is being paid for out of my own pocket, any chance to keep the costs down is very much welcomed.

Ever since I ran from John O'Groats to Lands End in 2007 I've worn Brooks Glycerin. They are a wonderfully comfortable shoe. The fact that I've ran 6 half marathons so far this week without a single blister or graze is testament to their comfort and fit.

Of course, my shoes are supplied by Brooks Sports so I may sound biased when I speak of their quality. I should say that I bought my own Brooks shoes for the John O'Groats to Lands End run back in 2007. It is with that in mind that I would recommend that any runner to get themselves down to Northern Runner in Low Friar Street, Newcastle (Just down from The Gate). If you have a neutral running style like me then why not try a pair of the Brooks Glycerin for size. If not then get the staff at Northern Runner to check your feet out and recommend the pair of Brooks shoes that suit your style. I'm confident you won't be disappointed!
