Putting your faith in a shoe

So here they are…the footwear that is going to take me around Dublin Marathon.

Asics gt1000

I’ve been a Brooks girl to this point. I love my GTS14 however I was struggling to get even 150mile out of them before holes began to appear so knew I’d struggle to break a pair in right for Dublin and for them to be in a wearable condition..that and I couldn’t afford to keep buying new trainers every 4 months.

So after doing Belfast Marathon I spoke with the Asics people and had my gait done. They recommended the Gt1000 and I set my heart on them. 

Obviously living in Ireland and choosing Dublin as my first marathon I am very patriotic and also loving that the medal this year is a commemorative medal for the 1916 Easter Raising. So I knew I had to some how stick to my roots if I could when picking shoes.

The bling for the marathon

So ladies and gents I give you my tricolour trainers. Adorned in green white and orange to ensure I pound the streets of Dublin with our nations flag on my feet! 

I did hit lucky with the colour combo and I am delighted that I’ve the perfect trainers in time for marathon training kicking off next week.
