Last Saturday we hosted another Bootcamp Bash.  I say “we” because it really takes a small village for me to pull these things off.  Travis loads his truck with the tires (with help from his brothers), my niece serves as babysitter for the older two kids, my mama comes and pushes Porter and Charlie Ruth in the double stroller and I…well I stand around and look pretty while blowing my whistle at people.

The face of the company if you will.

The kind people at Mizuno recently sent me their newest shoe – the Wave Rider 18 – and I wore them last Saturday.  I’m kinda bummed because they’re now covered in grass and dirt.  I guess you could say they’re now “broken in.”   If you’ve been a Lindsay’s List reader for a while, you know my LOVE/PASSION/OBSESSION with this running shoe.  Over the past three years, I’ve actually been blessed with the chance to review the Wave Rider 16, the 17 and now the 18.  Even if the company weren’t so generous (and I’m happy that they are), I’d spend my money on these shoes any day of the week.  They’re fabulous!  And they’re the only running shoe that I’ve consistently recommended to clients and friends.

The Mizuno Wave Rider 18 is the running shoe for most everyone.  They boast Mizuno’s patented Wave Technology which provides runners with a stable ride and just enough support and responsiveness.  The fit is perfect and true to size (I wear a 9.5).  Best of all, you don’t feel like you’re tied down to heavy shoes (the worst for me!!).  These shoes are light (7.8 ounces) yet provide plenty of support.  They’re very similar to the previous models – the only real difference I see is that the tongue doesn’t seem to come up as high (I like that).  Like I said, I’ve had three pairs now and they’ve proven to be just an all-around great running shoe.  The shoe retails for $119 – go here to read all about them!

Thanks again, Mizuno!

QUESTION:  Ever had a pair of Wave Riders?  Mizunos?  What’s your favorite running shoe?
