Now that I'm running longer distances and training for my first 1/2 Marathon, I realized I needed to invest in some higher quality, cushioned running shoes. I did a lot of research and tried on a slew of different shoes, and these were the clear winners - the Brooks Glycerin 8. I was ready to make the investment in these shoes while shopping at Transports in Oakland, and was happily surprised to learn they were on sale for 40% off!
And as I break them in, I've reconfirmed that I love them! I wore them for the first time yesterday during my run and it felt like I've been wearing them for years! Perfect fit, super cushy and great support. Let the training commence!
