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

New Balance Comes Through Again!

We have been extremely blessed to have New Balance, Inc. as sponsors since April. The company has kept us in high quality running shoes, saving us hundreds of dollars already! Last week, they sent me three new pairs of their model 1260 shoes to carry me through my next marathon!

I was really impressed when I read the "Made in the USA" tag on the shoe tongue. Go into any sporting goods store and look at where other shoes are made. You'll see shoes made in China and Vietnam, but you won't find any other brand made in the USA. I'm proud to be running in New Balance shoes made right here at home!

The 1260 is a new model for me and I'm still breaking in the first new pair, but I'm really pleased. Last week I made two 5 mile training runs in them before running a 10K on Saturday. I can't say it was all due to the new shoes I was wearing, but I did PR Saturday, beating my time last year on the same course by nearly six and a half minutes and beating my previous best 10K time by a little more than three and a half minutes.

I feel really blessed to have an international company like New Balance, Inc. sponsor a small organization like ours. Their willingness to supply our shoes allows us to enter more races and helps us accomplish our mission.

So we want to give a great big THANK YOU to New Balance, Inc. for their support of Running with Amanda!
