New shoes for marathon training: Mizuno Wave Rider 16

I’ve traveled nearly 400 miles in my Nike Frees. Being that this is my first week of marathon training, I thought it would be the perfect time to try out a new pair of sneakers. 

I decided to go with the Mizuno Wave Rider 16 because I wanted some support but I didn’t want to use them to compensation for bad running form and technique. 
I ran in these guys this morning and so far, so good. 
Does anyone run in Mizunos? What is your go-to sneaker? Does it changed depending on distance?

  7. xzombienursex answered: Yes! Mizunos are my brand right now. My feet inwardly pronate so I use the wave inspire for both running and my work as a nurse

  11. normalgirlruns answered: I’m a Mizuno die-hard - Enigmas (training) and Wave Riders (racing). They will wear out a little faster than the Nikes - rotate 2 pairs!
  12. challengesandchanges answered: started with frees bc I love how light they are -but eventually gave me shin splits. Jack Rabbit fitted me w/Asics GEL-Excel 33. Love em!
