I mentioned yesterday that on Thanksgiving, my dad and I did our third Turkey Trot 5K together. What I didn’t mention was the shoes I wore!

I had the opportunity to try out the new Mizuno Wave Rider 17 shoes and since I loved the Mizunos that I ran in last year I jumped at the chance.

What I loved most about the shoes was how light they were. I’m used to a heaver shoe and when I first ran in these it didn’t feel like I had heavy shoes on my feet. I must be really smart because I later found out that these are Mizuno’s lightest Wave Rider shoe that they’ve made!

– The New U4iC midsole is 30% lighter than standard foam, but for someone who wears a more supportive shoe, I found that this gives me just as much support.

– Another reason the shoe is so light is because they use blown rubber rather than carbon for the outsole. This makes the shoe only 8.8oz!



– And the colors – SO MANY COLORS! I have to say I do love the white ones that I received! I probably would have chosen them, or the bright blue!

After testing them out on the treadmill in Chicago, I laced up my Mizunos Thursday morning for the Turkey Trot!

The race is held at Sprint Center in Overland Park, KS and was much bigger this year than the previous years we’ve run. They tried to separate the start by walkers and runners, but the area they had the runners line up was much too small. We had to stand outside the barriers and slowly work our way in once the gun went off.

They changed the course from last year and I think it had more hills (my Dad disagrees). Either way, it was mountainous compared to Chicago but I pushed through and paced my dad for a PR!

We finished in 26:52 and I was so proud of him! He’s been cutting MINUTES off his 5K time every year that we run!

I also tried to teach him the importance of stretching after running, but he chose to just take pictures of me stretching…

I was so glad I had my lighter Mizunos to race in rather than my heavier long-distance shoes, it made for a fun race! The Mizuno Wave Rider 17 will be released on December 5th so they are the perfect item to add to your holiday wish list!
