Mizuno Wave Sky

 <img src='' style='padding:0px;margin:0px;' />

After running 44 of the 205 total miles at the Ragnar Relay from Lancaster to Mount Pocono, PA, my feet deserved a present!  The Mizuno Wave Sky

The Wave Sky is a brand new sneaker from Mizuno that replaced their Enigma shoe.  I have to admit I am an avid Wave Rider girl and always get a little nervous to try anything new!  

The first thing I noticed was how responsive the inside of the shoe felt.  It truly felt like I was running on two clouds!  It is a very neutral shoe that can be used especially for marathon or high mileage training!  I feel my Wave Riders have a firmer sole, but the Wave Sky offers more cushioning and comfort!  I noticed when I would strike, I felt a nice soft landing, and an immediate bounce back. 

The Wave Sky felt like it was made for my feet ... a very comfortable yet not restrictive fit!  The toe box of the shoe gave me plenty of room and allowed my toes to have space and breath.  

I wear a women's size 10 and felt this was the perfect fit!   

With Fall marathon training right around the corner I definitely will be incorporating the Wave Sky into my higher mileage training runs!  It weighs about an ounce more than the Wave Riders but I noticed a more responsive and bouncy feel with the Wave Sky!  

Another thing I noticed the most is it usually takes me a few runs to "break in" my new shoes but the Wave Sky felt amazing from the first step!  Plus ... I am obsessed with the colors!!!!! 

If you are looking for a new running shoe I highly recommend the Wave Sky!

Added bonus they are Collins approved.... now if they just came in her size!!!

Exciting New Adventures!!

Hellooooooo!!!  Wowwee it has been a long time since I have actually had a chance to blog!  Life is crazy wonderful right now.  My crew sure does keep me, sports, practice, science Olympiad,  Boston Marathon training and work = BUSY MOMMA!  But I wouldn't change it for the world. 

So ... Recently I was the extremely lucky winner of a "Coaching Package" from McKirdy Trained!!  THIS WAS THE BEST DAY EVER!!  I honestly have to say this is a complete game changer!  I tend to get caught up in overtraining/high junk miles but having a coach and weekly training plan has made me focus on purposeful runs!  LOVE it and the challenge! If you are looking for a coach I highly recommend them!

Now for something that truly takes me out of my comfort zone .... I have recently joined and fallen in love with the LipSense team!  I first tried this product in November and was hooked after my first application!  I am a lip gloss-aholic and constantly carry mine with me where ever I go.  When I do races I carry some in my fuel belt and reapply throughout my run.... I cannot stand my lips to be dry and after I finish my runs/races my lips tend to turn a little blue!  I have had people comment on them and ask if I was "ok?" ... SO when I did the Rehoboth Beach half marathon in December I tested out my LipSense!  I have to say I love my finishline and race photos!  Its the little things people!!

Also, being a busy mom of 3 littles ... I really do not have a lot of time to put myself together in the mornings ... This is why I love this product!! I literally apply it first thing and then do not have to think about it for the rest of the day!!  I can snuggle and kiss my little ones and don't worry about getting lip color on them ( my boys would be mortified if that happened )!  I can go into my night shift and still look fresh plus the color DOES NOT come off into my OR mask at work! Bonus!!

I could go on and on about the reasons I decided to do this but ultimately it is because I ABSOLUTELY love the product! 

I am nervous and excited for my launch party tomorrow!
