Bras We LOVE

New Balance - New Launch - One Day Away!

Tomorrow evening during the NCAA Basketball Tournament, New Balance is set to launch; "LOVE/hate. this is the New Balance."

According to many sources/articles, this is part of a plan to "double athletic footwear and apparel sales in part by tripling the company's spending on marketing."

The campaign depicts every athlete's struggle with their own relationship with running. Running makes you a better athlete, but not every athlete likes to run. That is where New Balance comes in; their mission is to make you LOVE running more with innovative products and exciting technologies.

We'll be in the front of the TV watching and waiting tomorrow.

If you catch the spot, let us know!

Missouri Flood Waters and a BIG Thanks

We would just like to take a moment at NB Web Express to say Thank You for all of the well wishes during the storms and rising flood waters in Missouri, Arkansas and Ohio.

While thankfully our offices in St. Louis were not damaged nor was business restrained, a lot of homes and local businesses were seriously afflicted. Here is an article about the flood waters for more information.

Luckily, the only drawback I felt personally from the flood was a longer commute home; a ten minute drive turned into a 60 minute journey trying to battle lines of re-routed drivers; nothing compared to the devastation some families and local business owners felt.

Thank you again for your kind thoughts and messages!

Music at your Fingertips...and While Running!

There are some new and exciting additions to the Lace Up for the Cure collection; check out the MP3 Holders from New Balance!

I've seen these "holders" at other retailers but none of them have the user-friendly features that these holders offer. The holders have a clear screen so you can monitor your song choice, a comfy adjustable arm band, and a space for the MP3 dial.

With other music holders and devices, you almost have to stop in your tracks to get the song you want...meanwhile your PR time flies by...well not anymore!

Try these new holders and let us know what you think.

And as an added bonus, New Balance will donate 15% of wholesale sales from the Lace Up for the Cure® Collection to Susan G. Komen for the Cure. See site for additional details on contributions and how New Balance is taking the lead to help find a cure for Breast Cancer.

Top 10 Nutrition Myths

I subscribe to e-mail alerts. is a website geared towards people with active/athletic lifestyles; you'll find training tips, nutrition guides, a little bit of everything fitness. Every now and again I will get articles about various health and fitness related topics sent to my inbox. This morning, the Top 10 Nutrition Myths were waiting for me in my e-mail and wow was I surprised.

Some of these myths shocked me...for example; for years I have been told by friends, parents, and Oprah to never eat anything after 8:00 PM; if you eat after 8:00, you will get fat. But after reading this article, that is certainly not the just have to read it to believe it.

This article also covers other topics like the benefits of Omega 3 fatty acids, the root of food cravings and white vs. dark bread. These myths are skewed towards the female audience, but some can be taken across the gender lines.

Have a look and let us know what you think, you might be just as surprised as I was.

New NB Zips for Spring

The new spring Zips have arrived!

Check out the new line of NB Zips for spring.
While designed mostly for the young, neutral runner, the NB Zips deliver a responsive ride and durable cushioning.

The women's colors are very light and perfect for spring, while the men's Zips are sleek and stylish with bold colors. My favorite of these colors has to be the WR8508WB; I love the soft green.

NB Zips are both functional and fashionable, so check out the new colors and try something new for spring. You can also find these new Zips for kids, too!
