For any newbies out there, go to a running shop and get properly fitted. Whilst I'm sure the Brooks Beast trainers are right for some runners, they may be totally wrong for another and may aggravate an injury issue.
I use Mizuno Wave and have found them to be most excellent for my needs..
I also found my gait changed during my first year of running. So it's a good idea to get things re-checked occasionally if you ask me. I went from over-pronator, to neutral.
My gait changed too as I upped the milage. I think new runners tend to be a little cautious with their strides and take small steps. As my distance (and confidence) improved I found myself taking longer strides and then started getting niggles - nothing I could call an injury, but warning signs. The next time I went to get new shoes I found that my giat had changed slightly.
I now run in Brookes Vapor and think they are great!
