The only thing better than Mizunos are free Mizunos

Remember a long time ago I gave away a Mezamashii run project invite ?

(An opportunity to order a free pair of Mizunos!)

Yeah that was awesome.  But what's even more awesome if that they are doing it again.  x10!!!!!

I have 10 invites to give away - all on the blog.  Which means that if you enter, you've probably got a decent chance of getting a free pair of shoes (I'm estimating chances at about 10% - edited to say: dammmnnn this contest is blowing up!  I'm gonna have to drop odds to 5% :(  ).   Time to try out that hot racer you've always been curious about. 

Next Year's Elixir.  Holy Crap Beautiful

Here's how you play: 

One entry: Leave a comment on this post.

Another Entry: Tweet to @mizunorunning and to me (@fasterbunny) about the giveaway and follow Mizuno running.

Another entry:  Leave (another comment) about what you're loving about running this fall.
Bonus entry if this statement is an alliteration.  (example: Frequent fall foliage falling freely). 

So it's possible to have your name in the pot four times!

Additional details:  You must have a shipping address in the US to win.  Giveaway ends a week from today (the 29th of October at midnight PST.).  If for some reason you are shy and don't want to publicly comment, you can email me as well and that can count for your entry.
*Also, if you don't have a blog, please leave enough of your name (or email) so that if you win, I can find you.

Cool?  So play!  I hope you enter!!  Obviously, I love these shoes and I hope you can try them and love them too!

*One more edit.  For some reason, Blogger is not publishing the comments beyond the first couple hundred.  I don't know why (trying to figure it out) but I am getting all of them through the interface and they will be counted!!

  4. Love your header! You're so cute! Just discovered this blog, thanks to Mizuno. I ran my third 5k yesterday and realized that if I want to become more serious about running, I really need to invest in some "real" running shoes. However, the price of running shoes freaks me out, so it would be awesome to win a pair!

  81. I would love to win an invite! I still have my first pair of Mizunos from when I started running in college -- I bought them because they were pink, but since then I've tried countless other shoes and nothing feels like the Mizunos! I recently ran a 5K PR of over 3 minutes in the Wave Riders and I can't wait to try again in my next race!

    ReplyDelete
  82. My favorite thing about fall running is: longsleeves, legwarmers, layers!

    ReplyDelete
  83. See above terribly unimpressive alliteration attempt.

    ReplyDelete
  84. I suck at alliteration. But I am loving the pep that the cooler temps are putting in my step. (If you can't alliterate, rhyme.)

    ReplyDelete
  85. My favorite part of running in the Fall is the fact that the weather has cooled down and I can pick up some speed.

    ReplyDelete
  86. Fall running is amazing because the cooler climate creates cathartic and calming connections! :)

    ReplyDelete
  87. Heard great things about these shoes - would love to try them!

    ReplyDelete
  88. I love fall running because it's 1) not hot, 2) love smelling burning wood (fireplaces) and 3) crunching leaves of course!
