Mezamashii Project

Hi Friends! This is a two part post so if you are looking for the Mezamashii Project post, continue reading. If you want Munchkin Meals, scroll to the bottom. 🙂

It’s no secret I’ve become a Mizuno runner.

There was a time when I pledged my love to Brooks but ever since I got my first pair of Alchemy’s in December, I’m a convert. How could I not? These shoes have taken me through a half marathon (and it’s training) where I achieved a PR. I also set a new PDR last week of 16 miles. I plan on crossing the finish line in September wearing Mizuno’s.

When I heard Mizuno was running a little thing called the Mezamashii Project I was thrilled! Mezamashii means “brilliant” in Japanese. Mizuno wants everyone to experience a brilliant run. Remember my experience with lululemon run design meeting? They wanted the customers input. REAL people, not professional athlete’s. That’s what I love about the Mezamashii Project. Mizuno wants runners (Mizuno lovers or not) testing out their shoes and essentially providing advertising. Not machines testing the flexibility and comfort but actual runners. No big billboards with a celebrity holding their shoe. Real runners. Pretty cool, huh?

Of course, I’d love to be a part of this project and have applied for an invite. I’m still waiting (hint, hint Mizuno 🙂 ) for a response. So if you think this is my pathetic plea to be a part of the Mezamashii Project, you would be absolutely correct. 🙂

If you are interested in being a part of the Mezamashii Project, go HERE to fill out an application for an invite. If you know of someone who can get me into the Project, I’d love you forever!

There are also a couple of GIVEAWAYS that are happening right now as part of the Mezamashii Project.

Visit Heidi @ Banana BuzzBomb. Deadline to enter is Friday, 7/6 @ 11:59 pm EST!

And Kristin @ Stuft Mama. Hurry, the deadline is tonight, 7/5 @ 8:00 pm PST! (That’s 11 pm for all you EST people 😉 )

It’s just Mizuno, me and the open road – Let’s RUN!

Oh! I almost forgot to add that I’m linking up with Brittany today from A Healthy Slice of Life for Munchkin Meals. She recently started this fun Thursday party. It’s like What I Ate Wednesday (WIAW) but the kids edition. I try to feed my kids essentially what I am eating. However, I know I am always curious what other parents are feeding their kids so I thought I’d join in. Here’s partially what my little munchkins ate yesterday.

Kodiak Cake pancakes with shredded zucchini in the batter, yogurt on top and organic berries and bananas on the side. Organic peaches. Butternut Squash Mini-Muffins (recipe will be up soon!). PB sandwich with carrots and pineapple on the side. (*One little munchkin couldn’t wait to eat so this is only part of their lunch. The pineapple is already gone.)

I missed taking pics of dinner. Opps! We had homemade pizza loaded with green peppers, broccoli and mushrooms.

Question of the Day

When was your last Brilliant Run?

If you have a Munchkin, what do they like to eat?

    1. Nope! I add shredded zuc, squash, carrots, etc to pancakes, hummus, PB, muffins, pasta sauce, just to get a little bit more nutrition in to their bellies. I eat it too and don’t notice it!

  1. I was really hoping to get picked too but then I lucked out and won one of the Mizuno giveaways!! Just got my shoes yesterday and I am loving them. First time I’ve tried Mizunos, and I can honestly say I was really impressed!

  2. I am hoping to be picked too!! Loved running in Mizunos and can’t wait to get back out on the road and have a brilliant run. Love your Munchkin meals too. I add all kinds of stuff to my kids pancakes and muffins. hee hee. They love it though.

    1. Good luck to you! I have no problem masking veggies in my kids food. I provide the “real deal” too but the hidden veggies are just a back up. 😉

  3. Great post… when you get your invite, let them know a certain dude that runs on pavement wants to be briliant as well. How sweet would photos be of a pair of M’s with the Golden Gate Bridge as the background.. pretty sweet right?
