Review: Mizuno Wave Kazan Trail Running Shoes

The following post is sponsored by FitFluential LLC on behalf of Mizuno.

If it were possible, all of my runs would take place on rugged trails shaded by trees and surrounded by wildlife. However, I live in New York City, so instead most of my runs takes place on paved cement and surrounded by a jungle of tall concrete buildings.

20 Thoughts You’ll Have While Running In the Rain


You know you’re in the mood to run when you wake up for a workout at 6AM on a Friday and not even the rain can keep you inside.

The Week Before Your Half Marathon

The last training run before the race.

It takes about 12 weeks to get half marathon ready. You run and run and run, and eat and eat and eat, building up your endurance and fueling your body with the nutrients it needs to perform at it’s best.

All of that hard work and dedication  is a build up to race day, and while by the final week before your race most of the work is behind you, this point in your training is just as important (if not more) as all the rest.
