I have been very fortunate to work with many different brands as my time as a blogger. Every relationship is different. But what is important and I think many other bloggers would agree is connecting with brands you truly believe in. Working with brands that you can stand behind effortlessly. Being a representative for a brand shouldn’t feel like “work”. It should be a joy and something that integrates naturally into your content. After three years of being a customer and advocate for this brand, I was finally welcomed into the fold. Ladies and gentleman, I am happy to formally announce that I will be sponsored by the amazing people at Skechers Performance for my 2017 race year! And truthfully, I couldn’t be happier.
Like many people, when I first heard that Skechers made a performance/athletic line of shoes I was skeptical. I had always seen Skechers as a fun lifestyle shoe, not a shoe that I would compete in races with. That was until I tried on my first pair of Skechers Performance GoRun 3s. They were light, VERY responsive, made with quality in mind, and priced ridiculously well. My feet instantly feel in love. I purchased several pairs and rotated in and out of those for training and competed in some. Their GoTrail collection is also very surprising. The shoes grip the most technical of trails and hold up nicely in terms of durability. Color and style matter a great deal to me, so when I can find a brand that offers style and quality I am all in. My go to shoe now is the GoRun Forza 2! It gives me the support I need without being heavy and responds very well on the road. Also it comes in some great colors.
Based in Manhattan Beach California, it is really awesome being so close to the headquarters of this organization. It is also VERY important to me that a brand focuses on runners of all skill levels. When a brand takes the time to connect with the running community and listen to what they have to say, they grow and become stronger. It isn’t all about a social media presence, it is about a presence in the streets, on the trails. It is about caring about your clientele, and in my experience Skechers Performance hits on every single one of those aspects. So, when I was asked to join the team there was no hesitation.
I am happy to be working with the team and look forward to a year of continued growth and goal crushing.
GO Like Never Before!
