Run Happy Ambassador

Did you see?! Did you see?! I added a new ambassador badge to the righthand side of my blog a couple weeks ago but decided to try and keep the announcement top secret until now.... SURPRISE! I'm so excited and I just can't hide it!

I don't know if you remember, but last year I was selected as a Brooks Run Influencer. They revamped the program a bit this year, changed the name and welcomed approximately 25 AWESOME ambassadors to the #RunHappy family (and somehow I snuck through the approval process and am beyond blessed to be included in the amazing group).


Let's just say when I got the email asking if I wanted to be a part of this squad I let out a squeal. Like, legit, I am OVER THE MOON! I may have pinched myself multiple times to make sure I wasn't dreaming (and have the bruises to prove it).

From one of the Brooks campaigns I was lucky enough to work on in the past

I've been rocking Brooks since around the time I first started running. (My first pair of shoes I was fitted for by my local running store was a different brand, but after that I've been consistently in Brooks.) I currently have four pairs of Brooks Running shoes in rotation and nine pairs of Brooks Heritage shoes, along with some of their apparel in the closet (and that doesn't include the numerous pairs of "retired" Brooks Running shoes I've donated over the years of my running career).

Just a few of the Brooks Running shoes I have had over the years... I would say the number is in the upper twenties...

To say I am stoked to be a part of the Run Happy Ambassador program might be the understatement of the year... I literally couldn't be more excited (okay, maybe if the ambassador role somehow also came with a lifetime supply of chips and salsa I might be able to muster up a little more excitement, but it'd still be close to the joy I am currently feeling).


I'm jazzed to be kicking off 2018 on the right (and left) foot {and, yes, I realize it's mid-February, but better late than never}!

I couldn't agree more, Brooks, I couldn't agree more!

PS In case you dropped the ball or procrastinated until the day before and still need a Valentine's Day gift for that special runner in your life (or if you need want to #TreatYoSelf), Brooks has you covered and can help you spread the love.

What is one way that you make sure to run happy?
