Unless you have been living in a hole, you know that Brooks is an industry leader when it comes to running shoes and apparel.

But, just in case you're new to this whole running gear thing, here's the 411 on Brooks ...

Biomechanically engineered for the running and walking needs of men and women of all shapes, sizes and experience levels, Brooks shoes offer advanced stability, cushioning and motion control, utilizing constructions designed to enhance comfort and reduce the risk of injury."

Basically, Brooks is where it's at. And their line brings together fashion and function - something I love. Just look at my personal favorites:

I am a follower! Which shoe? Tough choice...I would love another pair of Green Silence, but the T7 racer and the Mach spikeless series intrigue me as well...but I have tried on (and loved- but didn't buy) the Cascadia as well!

Desperately need a new pair! Training for a 70.3 in Augusta and am pretty sure my current pair will be worn out by then :)

I would alternate my new Brooks in with my current Asics trainers. I get to run doubles every now and then, and a second pair of shoes would be better, especially on double days.
