Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us,--Hebrews 12:1

Thanks Again to New Balance, Inc.!

If you've only recently started following us, you might have missed our announcement earlier this year that New Balance. agreed to sponsor us with running shoes. In April, we received our first pairs of their model MR890. It's now early August and New Balance has graciously provided us with new shoes to run in.

Before New Balance signed on to sponsor Running with Amanda, we were purchasing shoes at a local discount sporting goods store. Those shoes were lasting only about 200 miles for us until they needed replacing. My first pair of MR890s now has carried me nearly 500 miles! This is a really great shoe!

That's why we're so grateful that New Balance has agreed to sponsor Running with Amanda by supplying us with running shoes. Our first two pair came in last week, and today we ran our first race in them.

One of our favorite things about partnering with New Balance is the company's commitment to the United States of America. Though the MR890 is made overseas, New Balance still operates factories in the US. It's almost impossible to find running shoes made in the US these days, but you can still find New Balance shoes made right here at home!

We're proud to be running in New Balance shoes and are proud to recommend their products to runners and non-runners alike. Thank God there are still great companies out there. New Balance proves a company can care about its community, continue to manufacture products here in the US, and stay in business!

Thanks again from Running with Amanda to New Balance for all the great things they do!
