Are you running today? Head on over to SkinnyRunner’s blog to tell her all about it. Tuesday is the day to get your run on and shout it from the rooftops!
Yesterday morning I began working on one of my personal goals in the 33DC: taking the train to work everyday. Waking up early, having my coffee before I leave the house, and relaxing on the commute to work is the PERFECT way to start the day. I used to take the train a lot more, but I’ve been slacking lately. If I drive to work, I get to sleep in for an extra hour 🙂 Anyway, it makes for a much more relaxing day when you leave the driving to someone else!
In other news, Mizuno’s “Run with Us” promotion is here in Austin this week! Here’s an explanation from their website:
The “Run With Us” grassroots campaign is a mobile running tech lab designed to provide expert analysis and recommendation for runners of all skill levels. It features a grand scale technical van which houses two of Mizuno’s state-of-the-art “Precision Fit” terminals. There, consumers are provided an innovative and thorough biomechanical analysis of their foot type and running needs. The “Precision Fit” procedure determines which type of running shoe best suits the runner’s foot type, running style, and running goals. Runners are also given a chance to “test ride” Mizuno footwear that has been suggested for their biomechanics.
Pretty cool, right? Katie and I are going to head downtown early Saturday morning to check it out, and then enjoy a 5 mile run around Town Lake. Maybe we’ll get to do our run in a pair of Mizunos? Personally, I’m interested to see if they put me in the same model as the salesperson did this weekend. If not, those Wave Inspires might be going right back!
Happy Tuesday everyone – one day down, only four to go 🙂
Edit: Apparently everyone is discussing running shoes this week! Check out this guest post by Meg, a former Boston running store employee , over at the Healthy Tipping Point.
