I know I literally just posted about receiving my Mizuno shoes not too long ago, but I had a chance to test them out on a few occasions. I am way to excited about this to wait any longer.
***THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. THANK YOU FOR ENTERING!***
The only pair of running shoes I’ve ever owned have been Brooks Adrenaline, Asics, and Vibram Five Fingers. I have always wanted to try Mizuno’s after hearing great things about them. And seriously, who wouldn’t want to try a new pair of running shoes?
The second I got them, I obviously fell in love. Initially, Mizuno sent me another pair but they were too big, so I sent them back and got a smaller size in this style.
The customer service was great by the way. They helped me pick out whether I wanted a lighter shoe, heavier shoe, and what exactly I was looking for. I ended up with the Elixir.
Right away I could tell how comfortable they were. They were definitely light and flexible which I loved.
I’m doing Body Earned, so after my weights I took them for a sprint session. Holy cow, they are SO COMFORTABLE to run in.
I seriously almost died because I could not believe it. It honestly felt like I was running on clouds. They are light enough to have an amazing run, but they give just enough support to power you through your workout.
I had to wear them to school because I was legit obsessed. I think I will probably wear them a littttle too often. I am obviously a HUGE fan. I’ve worn them everyday since I got them…
Anyway, onto the giveaway!!! Sorry for blabbing.
Since I was also joined into the Mezamashii Project, I get to invite one lucky reader to join as well. Yup, that means you can get a free pair of shoes, too!
If you don’t know about the Mezamashii Project, here is a little insert from Mizuno:
In Japanese, the word mezamashii means “brilliant.”
That is the feeling Mizuno is on a quest to deliver more of —
a euphoric, wind-in-your-heart run. A brilliant run.
So instead of spending millions of dollars on advertising to talk about our shoes, Mizuno is giving away thousands of free pairs to runners like yourself so they can experience more mezamashii.
And for whoever gets invited to the project, check this out:
In addition to your free pair of Mizuno running shoes, you’ll also get early access to new product launches and exclusive Mizuno events.
Welcome to the quest for the brilliant run.
Is that awesome, or is that awesome? So, who wants an invite?
