Brooks Stride Signature & Giveaway

by Meghann on March 8, 2016

Happy Tuesday! I don’t know about you, but I’m still recovering from the amazing weekend we had here. My family and I had a blast taking in the gorgeous pre-spring weather at Magic Kingdom on Sunday.

We had two littles and two expecting mamas, so no thrill rides for us. However, the great thing about Magic Kingdom is there’s still so much to do. We rode Dumbo, the carousal, Pirates of the Caribbean, watched PhilharMagic, met TinkerBell had ice cream in front of the castle, and so much more.

I’ve had a few requests for a post (or two) on taking a baby to Walt Disney World. Now that I’ve done a couple of trips with my little one, I’m going to start a series next week. I’m actually planning to start with a post on visiting Walt Disney World while pregnant, since I’ve seen so many questions on it in a few of the Disney Moms boards I’m a part of. Stay tuned!

Brooks Stride Signature

When I was at Brooks Running HQ over the summer there was a lot of buzz surrounding the launch of Brooks Stride Signature. It’s a really cool new idea that there is no right or wrong way to run, only your unique way of running. With Stride Signature, Brooks assesses the way each body naturally runs and combines that with how each runner wants to experience the run to select the perfect shoe for each runner. Pretty cool, right?

Stride Signature completely redefines how Brooks categorizes their shoes. Now everything falls into four key categories: Energize Me, Cushion me, Propel Me, and Connect Me. This makes it easier for all of us to find the correct running shoe for our needs.

To get started, head to Brooks new shoe finder and answer 9 simple questions.

Please note some of these questions require getting out of your chair, standing up, and walking around. So if you were planning on testing this at your work desk (like I tried), you’ve been warned.

Once completed, Brooks new Stride Signature technology will put everything together and recommend a show you’re categorized in. I got the PureFlow (Connect Me).

The PureFlow is a shoe I’m very familiar with and love to run in, so the shoe finder was pretty spot on pairing me with a shoe I would love.
