Not only are we loving the shoes (see below), but we’re also loving how they’re helping us better align with the reasons why we move — and how we make both self-care a top priority (even though we have totally different reasons and ways of going about it!).   Jenn’s #MoveFor Self-Care Tips To put it simply, I…

The 2018 Special Olympics USA Games are right around the corner — and I’m so psyched to say that I’ll be there for the start of the games, along with my fellow Brooks Running blog ambassadors, because Brooks is bringing us all out to Seattle to be part of the cheer line. And that’s exciting to me on several levels. For one thing, I get an incredible amount of joy out of cheering people on. If you’ve never grabbed a spot at a race and screamed your lungs out for total strangers, you’re truly missing out. But also, I’m enormously…
