Brooks Giveaway - Closed

Have you seen the Team BILBO (Brooks Innovation Laboratory for Biomechanical Observation) video?  You really need to check it out because it is awesome.




The video introduces their SAC Technology for the Brooks Glycerin 8's.  Given that I am busy building chemistry lessons and units for my student teaching it was appropriate to watch the video weekend.  I was just looking at labs about non-Newtonian fluids to see if I could incorporate one into my unit.  Well, it won't work to do the lab with the middle school students I am with right now, but I can hope to do it in the future.

Brooks has offered to give one reader a choice of Brooks shorts or a jacket!  WOW!  What an awesome giveaway, if I do say so myself.  Here's what you need to do to enter (5 possible entries):

  • Go to Brooks Running (HERE) and commend what shoe you would love to wear (+1)
  • Why do you deserve a new pair of running shoes (+1)
  • Watch the video and leave a comment (+1)
  • Share this on your blog or twitter or however you share giveaways (+1)
  • Be a follower of my blog (+1)

Leave a separate comment for each entry, please.  Good luck to all!  Giveaway ends Oct. 1.


Thanks to Brooks for this generous giveaway.

I need a new pair of shoes because I can't afford them right now. 3 birthdays in Sept and Oct and now it's time to start saving for Christmas.

Nicki said...

I'm not sure which shoe I would get... I'd have to definitely try them on, but the Adrenalines look nice! :)

julie said...

I would love to wear the Ghost 3! I love Brooks running shoes! So I feel like I am cheating because I already wear them but I did check out the website to look at the new Ghost shoes.

julie said...

I run a lot and I am on a grad student's budget so I have to wear my shoes a little longer than I probably should so I could always use a new pair of shoes.

julie said...

I liked in the video when they say it is a "perfect ride for every stride". The brooks video is awesome!

meeyeehere said...

Well I deserve a new pair because I can't go running for a while because the shoes I was wearing caused my to pop a tendon in my little toe and now I have to just walk(in pain).
These would help me get around better for a few months and maybe be a nice shoe to jog in.

I love BROOKS and could really use a pair of their GHOST runners.

I deserve a new pair of runners because I've really been working hard at getting back in shape post-baby and post-injury and am changing from a heel-striker/support shoe wearer (Adrenaline/Addiction) to a mid-fore-foot striker (Ghost). Need new shoes to fit my new stride!!
