As you may know I’ve been slowly working my way through my Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend recaps.  The races were so awesome and the whole experience just so awesome I’m finding it kind of tough to put everything into words.  But I’m working on it and unfortunately find myself with some serious writer’s block.

So what does a good running blogger do when she can’t put her thoughts into words?  She’s gives something away of course!

And what do I have to give away?  Well let me give you a hint…

Sorry Mizuno, had to add the Minnie Mouse shoe bows for the 5k
at Walt Disneyworld!

My latest pair of Mizuno Wave Riders (I don’t have the 16’s yet) came along to Disneyworld for the Goofy Challenge with me along with the two other pair of Mizunos I’m currently running in.  Yep, I love me some Mizunos and for those of you who do too, or who would like to give them a try then this is your lucky day!

Last fall the good people at Mizuno Canada graciously gave me 5 pair of Mizuno shoes to give away to my readers and you may recall I already gave away 2 of them.  So do you see where this is headed?

That’s right!  I have 3 more pair of Mizuno shoes to giveaway!  Great, huh?  And do you know the best part?  If you are one of the winners, you get to pick the model of shoes you’d like to try, all you have to do is provide your size, chosen model and preferred colours (not all colors and models may be available at the time of ordering).  Go to and check out their lineup of shoes and their precision fit guide to help figure out your size.

These shoes are coming to you as part of the Canadian Mezmashii Run Project where Mizuno is trying to show runners how brilliant their runs can be in an awesome pair of shoes.  I’ve loved Mizuno for years but I think this campaign is so great because it gets runners to experience their shoes in the best way possible – by giving you a pair of your very own to wear and have brilliant runs in.

Anyhow, so here’s the scoop:

  • Use the Rafflecopter app below to enter
  • The contest will close at 12:00am on Friday, January 25.
  • Winners will be announced on this blog on or around Friday and also contacted directly
  • Please note these shoes are part of the Canadian Mezamashii Run Project and therefore this giveaway is open to Canadian residents only
  • Please share with all your friends!

    Good luck!

      I don’t think there’s a better reason to stop lurking on your blog than the prospect of free shoes πŸ˜‰ I like the Alchemy 12 running shoes. I love the gorgeous colours of their ‘neutral’ shoes, but as I tend to roll my feet…

    19. Cori    

      Well – I really want to see the recap – though I already know how it all went down…my sunburn is peeling really attractively as we speak…

      But I suppose a shoe giveaway is a good way to pass the time while I wait. Perhaps I can also use some time to coerce others not to enter so I can win it πŸ˜›

      1. Cori    

        oh and yeah – I’d still go with the Wave Enigmas

    20. Faith Ann    

      I can’t wait to see your race recap… have enjoyed reading the others! I can’t believe how ambitious you were to tackle the Goofy challenge as your first marathon!

      Oh my gosh, I’d love to win the Mizunos! They had a rep at a training run for my group last week, but I was still not allowed to run since I had stitches… so I didn’t get to try them out. The wave riders would be sooo great!
