The Sky’s the Limit – Mizuno Wave Sky Shoe Review

June 8, 2017 at 7:44 pm

I love when an email comes through asking if I want to try new shoes from Mizuno. Do I? Of course, I do! I tried the Wave Rider 20 last fall (review).

May 5, 2017 at 7:07 am

It’s Friday, so I’m linking up with Running on Happy and Fairytales and Fitness for the new Friday Five 2.0. The theme this week is “Theme Races.” Don’t hate me for this, but I’m not a fan of themed races. That’s putting it mildly. I’m happy that other people enjoy them and more power to them. Themed races are not for me. So… given the…
