I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Reebok. I received a Famous Footwear gift card to purchase a pair of Reebok shoes to facilitate my review and to thank me for participating.
As you know I started running this year. I started out just walking and have progressively stepped up my game. I’m not great by any means but I’ve gotten myself down to a 12 minute mile. There’s definitely been some struggle and definitely a lot more gained. I’ve pushed boundaries already that I didn’t think I could do and I’ve pleasantly kicked my own butt on several occasions.
And it made me smile.
Not just any smile either. It was an ear to ear grin. And the farther I pushed my last best, the bigger my grin got. I never thought I could run a mile straight before but I can. I never thought I could run period. It really came down to mind over matter. Well, that and a great pair of running shoes.
I didn’t really believe in myself when I started. I didn’t want to invest in anything new and in return I was uncomfortable. I used old sneakers I never really wore before and likely weren’t even running shoes. I bought them because I thought I should have sneakers and they were pink. I know. I know.
Thanks to the boys needing new sneakers I found myself on vacation in a Reebok Store trying on some sneakers. In my mind I had my eyes on a completely different brand but the sale was too good not to take advantage of these and I ended up with Reeboks for the first time in my life. From the first run I ran in them I knew they were going to be my go to shoes. I love how good my feet feel in them and the added support my feet get in them. I was having really bad aches doing 2.5 miles and with these gorgeous Reeboks I’m now doing 4.5 miles four times a week. And my feet never hurt. I’m definitely a #ReebokMom now.
I have done a lot of reading that you should replace your shoes every few month if you’re actively putting a lot of miles on your shoes so I’ve been scoping out my next pair. I’m exclusively looking at Reeboks. When I heard that Famous Footwear carried a great line of Reebok running shoes I headed down to my local store. They had a great selection of running shoes from many top brands. They also had really cute casual and dress shoes!
Famous Footwear is a great stop for all your families needs as they have shoes for the whole family. Great place to get all those back to school needs taken care of too when you’re grabbing that new pair of Reeboks for that peaceful run when they head back.
