As I posted in my race report, I have fallen out of love with my shoes. To be more specific, my Mizuno Wave Riders. I tried. I really did. I've been running in WRs for at least 3 versions. If you've been reading this blog for awhile (are there any left?), then you'll know that I've been kind of a shoe whore before that. I really thought that this relationship would last.
They look cool, but they feel weird walking around. Strangely enough, they feel less weird when I start running. I'm not about to tell you about how the forefoot cushioning blah blah blah and the upper doesn't caress my yackety yack. I don't know any of that technical stuff. All I know is that they just don't feel right.
"So buy some new ones you idiot!" some would beckon.
"Because I don't want to, moron!" I would retort.
I can't return them and they're too damn uncomfortable for mowing. Looks like they'll go back to the recycling pile along with some old Mizunos. Ones that served me well in the past.
Holy Lord, this is the worst post of all time. I apologize. I would just delete the whole thing, but I said I was going to write more this summer. Just didn't clarify that some (most?) of it would be crap.
