Spring has finally sprung [happy first day of spring!] + it’s time to celebrate with BRIGHT kicks. This winter has been tough, weather wise — I think we can all agree. But even the harshest of winters finally give up + give in to spring.
I’m a firm believe that if we didn’t have winter, we wouldn’t appreciate spring as much. It’s so funny living in Chicago — the first *glimpse* of warmth [47 degrees, yup] + sunshine ++ we are all outside wearing shorts, loving the weather.
I still have a little winter in me [hence — black eerrythang], but the first day of spring put a spark in me to get out + rock my newest bright kicks. I’ve been cooped inside for WAY too long [besides #runCHAARG — can you guys believe we ran in negatives?! Ahah, it almost feels like a dream], so it felt so good to get in a run outdoors.
I wore my first Brooks when I tested out the Brooks Ravena 5 + while I liked them, the Ghost 7 is more my sweet spot. I love lightweight shoes — these are not only light, but also have a lot of cushion. It’s a neutral shoe as well, perfect for many runners. I highly recommend these! ++ they have CHAARG blue, just sayin’.
