Running with Mizuno

Woodward Park

It had been such a long time since I had gone running outside. By long I mean two weeks. I run at this amazing park in my city. Unfortunately I live on the opposite side of where the park is located. It takes about 30 minutes to get there but I still try to head over there at least once a week. I meet with my running partner there, lace up the shoes, and hit the pavement. We run a minimum of five miles every time we meet.  The reasons I love this park are because it has beautiful scenery and hills. Hills are crucial for training but painful.  Actually there aren't really that many hills in my city. It is pretty flat except for this park. The rolling hills are filled with beautiful scenery. California is currently under a water drought so some of the views won't be as beautiful until we get some rain!

 Mizuno has the key to my heart when it comes to running shoes. I first started off with the Wave Rider and am now in love with the Wave Sayonara. This shoe is comfortable, lightweight, neutral, and great for my distance running. It is low to the ground and has great traction. Not only do I love both of these styles, but they are also award winning. Mizuno recently came out with a new shoe: Wave Sayonara 2. I am extremely excited to try this shoe out. It is meant to be great for fast training and race day. Stay tuned for a review. I have tried other brands but Mizuno seems to fit my high arched feet better than others. However, I am open to trying new shoes.
What brand of running shoes do you wear and why?

  1. Running long distances is not at all an easy task because you cannot do it based on your physical strength alone. You need to have the mental stamina required to cover the long distance. Moreover, one of the most important things to remember while running is that the shoes which you are wearing must be comfortable and should be suited for long distance running. Thanks to the author for recommending a new brand of shoes that looks fine and must be comfortable also. However, you should never go for a long distance run in your new shoes as there are high chances of blisters forming on your feet. You should have a warm up and small training session with your new shoes before going for a long distance run.
