Mizuno Wave Inspire 3 -- mileage as of 6/5/10 = 513/500

UPDATE - 6/5/10:

I used these shoes in the Camp Pendleton Mud Run, where they made their humble exit.

After around 300 miles, my Sauconys completely lost their support and springiness, so off to the store again for some new recommendations. After lots of test jogging in the hallway, I finally decided on these because they are supportive in the arch area, light, and not abrasive on the inner side of my foot. I wanted Sauconys, but these seemed to be the better choice at the time.

These were way more expensive than I would have liked, but since I now know what is out there, I can buy future pairs online. I shouldn't be in so much pain over the price. Running is a huge hobby in my life, and relative to other sports, it is an extremely cheap one in which to partake.

Anyway, the shoes are light, though less rugged for running on the pebbles and stuff I normally encounter outdoors. I am pretty sure these are good for racing because of the lightness. I used to dislike the orange color, as I was set on green shoes, but over time, I have grown to think that orange and black are really cool and fun colors to have on a shoe, and I'm sure come race-time, I will like it even more.

UPDATE: 8/27/09 -- I got these lime green sport shoelaces for my birthday and finally had a chance to put them on my Mizunos today. I made sure to keep the lock-lacing configuration intact. Hope these don't draw TOO much attention to my shoes, especially with the lime green singlet I have...

I wonder if the type of laces used will affect the fit of the shoe. So far, so good, though, as long as I can still strap the Nike chip sensor onto it...

Expect some pics of me racing in them soon...
