      Q: Hi Andy! What is your favourite venue to race and why?

      Category: Ask Andy
      A:
      Hi Jim, I’ve got a couple – for different reasons.

      Bislett Stadium in Oslo is a magical place to run – the crowd are so close to the action, and even racing at 10pm it’s still daylight. There is also so much history associated with the Dream Mile, which has played a part in some of the greatest rivalries in the sport.

      The Armory in New York is special too – not only is it one of the fastest indoor tracks in the world, but at the New Balance Games there are 6,000 high schoolers watching as we interrupt their meet to compete, making the atmosphere incredible. This is such a direct way for professional athletes to inspire the next generation, and feels like the embodiment of the Olympic legacy.

      Q: My name is Anthony Balavage, I am a 42 year old married dad of three. My athletic prowess was limited by the fact that I was morbidly obese. 20 months ago I weighed close to 500lbs, hypertensive, diabetic, and sleep apeneic. I had gastric bypass and 200lbs later, as of October 9th 2011, I ran my first marathon. Now I am no Andy Baddeley, but training in your New Balance 890s for 350 miles this past summer, then switching to a new pair 70 miles ago kept my feet in tip top shape. Still ended up with some black toes and lost nails, but worth it considering I was dying and didn’t know it. The Andy Baddeley 890s were the perfect running shoe for even bigger runners like myself for fit, comfort and durability. Thank you for putting your name on such a great product. Good Luck in your quest. Anthony Balavage PS Running that marathon every year until I can’t…

      A:
      Hi Anthony – I’m so glad that you’ve achieved so much. This is all down to you and your hard work, but I’m glad that the shoes could help you along the way! (And no one is going to believe that I didn’t send this question in myself!)
