So one the biggest changes this year is that I have now signed on with... NIKE!!!!
This was a big decision for me, since I had been an Inov8 athlete for so long, and I loved all Inov8 shoes. However, I did not feel that there was much opportunity for growth, and I never truly felt like I was part of a team. With Nike I have amazing support and an amazing team! :) Stacie Carrigan also signed on with Nike Canada and I'm so stoked to have her as one of my teammates, THIS GIRL CAN RUN!!!
To be honest, at first I was skeptical of what Nike could offer to a trail runner. But soon after my initial talks with them I was sent a pair of Nike Zoom Terra Kiger and I was SOLD!! These shoes were light as a feather, but felt like I was running on clouds. NO MORE SORE FEET!! :) And they come in some sweet colours.
I have such an amazing group of sponsors now:
Nike, CW-X compression, Drymax Socks, Orange Mud Hydration, Julbo Eyewear, GU Energy Labs, Hypoxico and Tho'z Barz. I'm so excited for the year ahead.
