Recently, I was invited to be a founding member of Mizuno's Mezamashii Run Project. I received information about Mizuno, the project, a pair of running shoes and -- this is where you come in -- a free pair to give away!
Before I get to the giveaway, though, let me share some information.
Mizuno designed the project to help runners have a more brilliant run, thus the name, Mezamashii, which means "eye opening" or "brilliant" in Japanese. Instead of spending money on an extensive ad campaign to promote their shoes, they decided to put the shoes on the feet of real runners, with the belief that those runners would achieve a "mezamashii feeling" and spread the word.
Well, here I am spreading the word.
Now, let me share some of my history with Mizuno. It hasn't always been the best. Back when I was wearing heavier shoes, I tried out a pair of Mizunos that just weren't for me. They were great for kicking around, but not for my running gait.
So, I was a little apprehensive when I was invited to be part of the Mezamashii Run Project. Would I hate the shoes? Then what would I do?
I didn't even need to worry.
I ordered up the Mizuno Wave Inspire 8 and have worn them for my last five or so runs. They are awesome.
I love how they feel and, I admit, I love how they look! Check them out:
