Lab Rat

A couple of weeks ago I was invited to Brooks Running headquarters in Bothell, Washington to be a Brooks Running Lab Rat.

What does that mean? Basically it means that I tested some running shoes. Now I can’t go into any details about how or what I tested. But it was a lot of fun! I hope to be invited back for future testing!

For my efforts, I did get this sweet shirt!

I’m giving away a pair of Brooks Running Shorts!

I recently ordered a pair of men’s 5″ Brooks Running shorts. However, by error they sent me a pair of women’s 5″ running shorts. I asked if I should send the shorts back, but they said I could keep them.

I’ve decided to give them away to my 500th twitter follower! Follow me @runwithwes
