The Mizuno Wave Rebellion is a brand new and long-awaited shoe from Mizuno. Until recently, Mizuno hasn’t had the “plated shoe” in US markets. While the Mizuno Wave Rebellion doesn’t have a carbon plate, the glass plate is designed for workouts and to run fast.
The Saucony Kinvara 12 is an update to one of the most popular Saucony shoes. It’s been around for a long time, but I’m just going to come out and say it. Previous versions were much more well-loved by Saucony fans. Now the Kinvara has migrated into an ok but not extraordinary shoe from Saucony. Sometimes I wonder if “this is the last year,” but it keeps coming back.
It’s not that the Saucony Kinvara 12 is a bad shoe, but it’s not special anymore. It needs a substantial update. If you liked previous versions of the Kinvara, you’ll probably like this one too.
The Heroes to Hero 5k is one of my favorite 5ks of the year. It’s weird to say that now that I’ve moved away from New Jersey, I guess. At the group run at RunningCo. of Haddonfield last week, I found out the Heroes to Hero 5k was the same weekend I was in town. I knew I was going to run anyway over the weekend, so I decided…why not.
Recently I tried Punch Gunk. If you are like me, you may never have heard of it before. It is created to be a nonstick and nongreasy topical pain relief. Of course, it isn’t going to solve any “serious injuries,” but you will find fast relief if you find yourself more sore than usual.
