Anonymous said… 1183
Sorry for the second post I didnt leave my name or email and my name is Lauren Goodwin. The doctor has told me I really need to start walking; however the dog ate my sneakers (yes this is true) but it isnt in my budget right now. I would love love to win!!! At their site the HRT is cool since I have to track that too!

I’m trying to get into better shape for summer. I bought some clothes as motivation and I bought some workout DVDs to get me moving. New Balance helped out even more with a pair of great running shoes and supportive sports bra. I’m not a huge sneaker wearer so when I told New Balance what I wanted to use them for they picked out the perfect pair.

749 Features MSRP $80
Mild stability trainer for endurance runners looking for a smooth stable ride
Bright, bold styling
Medial post located on inside of shoe-designed to help with over-pronation control
Stability Web and NLOCK® integrated lacing system ensure optimal fit support and security
ABZORB® cushioning in both heel and forefoot for exceptional shock absorption
Air mesh upper offers lightweight, breathable support
NDurance & Acirc rubber compound for maximum outsole durability

I’ve been wearing these shoes for over a week and working out and walking they are comfortable and fit great. I have to say New Balance seems to run true to size in comparison to other shoes I’m purchased in the past. I do want to add that I tend to have problems with my arches but New Balance quickly offered a solution and now I’m feeling better results already.

I’ve mentioned in the past that I’m a large breasted woman. One of the biggest problems I’ve had with exercise is finding that perfect system to keep them supported throughout the session. I’ve been trying sports bra after sports bra. I found a solution; wear a sports bra than put on a tight fitting tank with built in shelf bra for more support. This wasn’t the most comfortable or supportive method.

The High Profile Crop ($60 MSRP) is a prosthesis-friendly, high impact sports bra with three points of adjustability for a customized fit. The bra is equipped with an adjustable bottom band, removable pads and padded hook and loop shoulder straps with internal stabilizers for decreased movement. The Lightning DryTM moisture-wicking liner features engineered pockets to hold prostheses or nursing pads while a front locking zipper ensures a secure fit during rigorous workouts.
This sports bra fit great, no more need to layer on a tank with bra. It really gave me all the support I needed, no more jiggling and bouncing. It took a little trial and error to get the perfect fit but the adjusting is super simple. Regardless of bra size every woman is going to benefit from support and stability while running, aerobics or playing in the park with your kids.
I’m now on my way to a more productive endeavor at a healthier lifestyle and exercise regimen thank to New Balance. I signed up for a run/walk in a few weeks in Philadelphia; I’ll let you all know how it goes.
