Mizuno Wave Sayonara Review

When I began running, I was a Nike girl. I literally run through my favorite grey pair with the neon orange swoosh and hot pink accents. They were my perfect pair and hung onto them until recently, when I took them out for their last run for a mud run. They were in no shape

StrideBox August Review

After anxiously checking the mailbox every day in anticipation, my favorite time of the month has arrived—the day my StrideBox arrives.   StrideBox is honestly the best thing I have ever ordered as a runner because I get to try out new products that I would have otherwise not have uncovered.

Week 3 Half Marathon Training

July 14-20th:  Week three of my training proved to be the hardest yet. This was not because there was more runs or because they were longer distance.
