Welcome to the Brooks Blog!

Greetings from Brooks Sports!

We’re thrilled to be launching our new Brooks Blog. Through it, we’ll share information of interest to Brooks fans, runners of all abilities–and, of course, runners who are Brooks fans.

Check back often for posts from Brooks insiders, including footwear designers, biomechanics experts, product managers, even our CEO!

Coming soon, straight outta Beijing, look for posts from Jesse Williams, our Sports Marketing Manager here at Brooks. Jesse works closely with the Hansons-Brooks ODP team. He’ll be our man on the scene–our eyes and ears–as Brian Sell prepares to run in the Men’s Marathon on Aug. 24. (Live broadcast on NBC occurs Saturday, Aug. 23, starting at 7:30 p.m.)

In the meantime, here’s how you can show your support for Brian, who we like to think of as the hardest-working runner on the U.S.A. Men’s Marathon team.

  1. Grow a Fu Manchu–or some other equally righteous face fuzz.
  2. Take a photo.
  3. Enter the “Sell YourSellf” contest on by uploading your photo.

Can’t grow a competitive ‘stache, ‘cuz, say, you’re female or something? 🙂 No worries! You’re welcome to enter a digitally altered photo of yourself. (Note: You can edit photos for free at Check it out if you haven’t yet done so.)

Hurry, though. The contest ends Aug. 11. Read all about it and watch for more Brian Sell coverage at
