Brooks Adrenaline GTS 14 – New Shoes, New Shoes!

Disclaimer: This post may contain affiliate links.

The time has come and my first “good” pair of running shoes (in the last 10 years) have officially hit their mileage. They probably have a few more miles in them but they will be mostly reserved for walking from now on. My legs were starting to feel it after a run so it was time for a new pair of my Brooks Adrenaline GTS 14s!

I loved my shoes so much that I ordered the exact same ones. As someone with a history of ankle problems I felt it was best to stick with what I knew worked so a new pair of Brooks Adrenaline GTS 14’s arrived yesterday. I love them. I previously had the white/pink combo but decided to brighten it up a bit this time. The pictures don’t do it justice! To be honest green/blue is 100% my color combo too!

Ahh I’m in love.

Anyways, I originally had planned on making today my long run day. For a number of reasons my week is all crazy and disorganized. I really wanted to try my new shoes though and I knew it was a terrible idea to do a 7-8 mile run on a brand spanking new pair of shoes.

It was a gorgeous Fall July day, so even when I left to run I was convinced I was going to run my long run. About 1/3 of the way into my run I realized that was a stupid idea and switched it up to my “easy paced 35 minute run” of the week. I was already going at an “easy pace” since I was planning on a long run so it made the most sense. To be honest, the fried fish I had for lunch (at a family event) helped with that decision.

While it wasn’t my fastest run I felt pretty good after. I’m still trying to plan out the rest of my week. I’m really not doing a good job of cross training this week! We’ve had a large unexpected event happen & another event coming up so things got a little bit on the crazy side this week.

I love my new shoes though. I know everyone is different (and has different needs) so what are your favorite running shoes?
