Here's what Mizuno has to say about the Mezamashii Project.
In Japanese, the word mezamashi means "brilliant." We are on a quest to deliver more mezamashii -- more ecstatic, electric, wind-in-your-heart running. More brilliant running. So instead of spending millions of dollars on advertising to talk about our shoes, we're putting our money where your feet are -- by giving you a free pair.As you may know, I fell hard for the Ronin 4. And unlike some shoes, where I like them at first and then eventually grow to dislike them, the more I wear the Ronin, the more I like them. But I can sit here and preach all I want...truth is, you don't truly know how a shoe is going to work for you until you try it yourself. Luckily, that is the whole point of the Mezamashii Project.
So here's how it goes. I'm giving you five days to enter to win a free pair of Mizunos of your choice and experience a brilliant run of your own. You can check out the selection here. Today's 7/5/12, so that means you have until Tuesday, July 10th, 2012 at 11:00pm Eastern time (11:00pm EDT) to enter. I have two pairs of shoes to give away, and a couple different ways to enter.
1) Leave me a comment describing your ideal brilliant run. (You don't have to be a follower or even have a Blogger account to do this).
2) Follow my blog.
3) Follow Mizuno Running on Twitter.
4) Follow me on Twitter. Make sure to tweet me (@BeckiPierotti) and Mizuno (@MizunoRunning) and tell us which shoes you'd want!
5) Tweet and/or Facebook share this blog post.
Be sure to leave a separate comment for each entry so I can use a random number generator and I don't have to write up paper entries and pull them out of a shoebox. I reserve the right to check, so please don't tell me you followed Mizuno's Twitter account when you don't have Twitter yourself. Also, make sure you leave me some way to contact you. If you've followed my Twitter, I can DM you, otherwise make sure to leave me an email address (or you can do both if you so desire). I will be announcing the winner next Wednesday, but just in case you forget to check my blog, I'd like a way to contact you because the offer does expire by 7/15/12 (which is a Sunday...so ideally you'll have your order in by Friday, 7/13). Good luck!
Full disclosure: All of these shoes will be provided by Mizuno through the Mezamashii Project. Big thanks to them for putting this program together!
