I figured the title of this post may peak your interest!
I love the Brooks slogan “Run Happy”. I have a shirt with this plastered across the front and it actually does make me happy every time I put it on. As did this new pair of Brooks shoes I got in the mail today:
This is my first pair of shoes from the Brooks Pure Project line and the first time I’ve purchased a pair of road shoes that aren’t Newtons in three years. I’m ready for a change, and excited to try these out. When I opened the box I was reminded of what’s so awesome about Brooks – check out the message on the inside of the box – check it out:
I love that last line – “Now put them on and run happy”. Well, I couldn’t say no to that! I wasn’t originally planning to run tonight but took them out for an easy 3 miles. They felt pretty good but different than what I’m used to. I’m curious to see how they feel once I’ve been in them a few weeks.
Now, regarding eating crickets: Has anyone else heard about this company called Exo? I read about it in a copy of Paleo Magazine I picked up at Whole Foods this week. I don’t follow a paleo lifestyle but the recipes looked really good, and there’s actually a lot of great content, so I figured why not. Anyway, the deal is this company makes energy bars made with flour made from crickets! Yep, that’s right. Ground up crickets.
Their story is pretty interesting, but I just honestly don’t think I could eat something made with crickets. It sounds like they’re marketing them to Crossfit gyms, so it’s probably only a matter of time before my husband brings these into our house at some point.
Could you do it? Could you eat a bar made with cricket flour?
