The Inside Scoop on Brooks Running Apparel: A Q&A With Lauren Wall
Something I’ve learned about myself as we’ve done more and more video? I make some really, really wonky faces. Case in point: this video of an interview I did with Lauren Wall of Brooks Running. I got to meet Lauren when I went to New York City for Brooks earlier this year, and she is seriously so darn good at her job and as sweet as can be. She heads up the women’s apparel department at Brooks Running and is super passionate about what she does and why she does it. I could talk to her for hours about what fabric they use here and why they put this there, etc., etc., etc. (She’s also a big fan of thumb holes, which I adore her for!) However, I do have a tiny bone to pick with her—and it’s about those wonky faces I mentioned. During the interview, my internet connection went all slow and our Skype video call kept freezing up on screen. When doing so, I was frozen in time with bad face after bad face. But Lauren? Poised, smiling and fresh as a daisy.
Check out the video for proof…and get some fabulous insight into what goes into making Brooks Running apparel, along with some important tips for safely running at dark and dressing for the changing seasons! (And, yes, I’m just jealous of Lauren’s ability to speak without looking pained or like she’s doing an impression of this guy.)
Fab tips, right? I love her enthusiasm and knowing just how much (so much!) goes into each and every piece of Brooks Running apparel. Makes us love the darn company even more. Even if Lauren does have super-hero video capabilities that I can’t compete with…
