If you missed my original post, What Your Running Shoes Say About You, I wrote my takes on adidas, Asics, Brooks, Mizuno, Nike, and Saucony fans.

In this installment, We'll cover some old favorites and some up and comers!

What Your Running Shoes Say About You

A genuine and humble soul, many people don't even know you run, much less bring the heat! On the track you're a fierce competitor while off the track you enjoy the simple things in life. Committed to a small group of training partners, you make each other better one day at a time. A smart racer; when rivals go head to head with you they usually lose.

Relentless, you don't let anything get between you and your run. You know there are no shortcuts and consistent hard work is the path to success. A life long runner or new to the sport, you bring a unique perspective to the trail that your training partners appreciate. On race day, you are quick to smile and fast to the finish.

Colorful and quirky, you can't get enough of running or runners. Your running journey has taken a lot of twists and turns, but you're sticking with it. Your teammates rely on you for a positive mental boost. On race day, you feed off nervous energy and are constantly looking for opportunities to execute better than before.

Your morning run is what gets you out of bed. A principled, self-starter, you aren't afraid of being different or trying something new. Those around you find themselves motivated to get out the door. You race to find the best in yourself and the world around you. You're particularly dangerous at altitude.

You see opportunities and capitalize on them. Running has changed your life. For you, running is about family, both your blood relations and the running community at large. On race day, you're the underdog on paper, but your tactical skill is like that of a chess Grand Master.

You're always on the move because you can't stand staying still. You live on the cutting edge of technology and fashion which spills over into your running. Your friends ask you for the best running routes and restaurants when they travel abroad because chances are, you've already been there. Racing for you is an intensely personal experience where you seek the unknown, testing your limits.

Your spirit runner is Frederik Van Lierde.

I can't believe I did 6 more brands! There's probably at least 6 more brands, too, but I'm kind of getting tired of writing this stuff.

Did you relate to my take on your brand?
