I’ve been promising this HUGE post for awhile.
There’s no hiding the fact that I love my Mizuno running shoes. In fact, the word love might be a bit of an understatement. I LOVE (like wish I could marry) my Mizunos.
I love them so much that I’m not even going ramble on about my day yesterday or tell you about what I had to make an emergency stop for on the way home from the gym last night. Click here if you just can’t wait to see.
I won’t bore you with my workouts.
I won’t even show you my low calorie ice cream I had last night (for the 5th night in a row).
I’ll even refrain from sharing my new summer berry salad with you. I have to show you a picture of it though because it’s darn pretty.
And…. just because I like to be a tease and I created yet another chia protein cookie dough dip (although it’s not really a “dip”, I eat my protein cookie dough with a spoon) yesterday, I’ll show you this that I can’t wait to share.
So watch out, I may just be back sooner than you think with this all this goodness.
Not now though.
I’m not even doing Flat Kitty Friday today. It’s time to talk shoes.
Through the years my Mizunos have taken me on some brilliant runs and have accompanied me to all of my races.
Here are some of my favorites:
I’ll even credit them for getting me qualified for Boston. Now if they could only get me there to run the Boston Marathon in 2013…..
Oh, and leaving an extra pair of Mizuno running shoes at all times in my car is one of the best decisions I ever made. Because of this particular day, I will always keep shoes in my car. The opportunities that might present themselves and the places good running shoes can take you are amazing.
We’ve had some great times.
I’m sure we are going to have many more.
I’ve talked about my Mizuno love a lot, but I talked about finding the perfect pair here. Speaking of finding the perfect pair, Mizuno has this awesome precision fit analysis online to help you find your perfect shoe. Pretty darn cool.
Just to make sure you don’t think I’m making this Mizuno love stuff up I better show you these.
I have been a loyal fan of Mizuno shoes since I bought my first pair in 2004. I have not run in any other shoes since.
Some people might see this as a little bit of a problem. I see it as many, many miles doing what I love to do: running and racing.
I’ve recently befriended the wonderful people over at Mizuno. (I guess I’ve raved about their shoes long enough or just been that annoying on twitter.)
They generously sent me my favorite Wave Nirvana shoes.
And after I bothered (and begged) them enough they sent me the new Wave Inspires to try out as well.
I’d say I’m all set for awhile.
I better get some races on the schedule to make good use of these bad boys.
Now for the good stuff.
