If there’s ever a time to tell someone how you really feel, it’s right now. Valentine’s Day lets us tell our friends, relatives and special someones how much they really mean to us. We’ve partnered with Mizuno to encourage you to share something heartfelt about your running valentine.
Why all the encouragement? Well, there’s something in it for those who share. One commenter will receive two pairs of the Mizuno Wave Enigma 2. Part of Mizuno’s neutral collection, the Enigma gives runners an ample amount of cushioning for a smooth ride.
Love is kind of like an Enigma, right? To enter for a chance to win, just answer the following question in the comments section of this post. The staff here at RunningShoes.com will choose a winner from our favorite answers.
Let your running valentine be anyone special to you—a husband, a mother, a best friend—someone who brings joy and color into your world; the person who makes you smile on a rainy day. Share your story about them, gain some good vibes, and potentially pick up some free Mizuno shoes. Sounds like a win-win to us!
UPDATE: We have a winner! Congrats to Debbie, who submitted the following note about her valentine:
I know most people choose their valentine to be their boyfriend, significant other, or spouse, etc. and I am married and love my hubby with all my heart but this year I would choose my son, Benjamin, as my special valentine. He has been an inspiration to both myself and my husband. A couple years ago he boldly came to us and told us that he was concerned for our health and he loved us so much and he wanted us to be around for a long time and that he wanted to make sure that he could help us do anything he could to encourage us to get healthy. Through a lot of encouragement we have joined weight watchers, started an exercise program and more recently Benjamin is encouraging us to run in the Pat Tillman marathon. Benjamin runs/jogs right beside me like my personal trainer encouraging me with every step cheering me on. Our other three children are also jumping on board in getting healthier.
Debbie and her son will each receive a pair of the Mizuno Enigma 2. We thank you to all who participated. There were some really great entries. We hope you shared your kind words with your special valentine!
Debbie sent us a picture of her and her son enjoying their new shoes. She writes:
My son has now convinced my husband and I to start hiking mountains. We are here at the top of North Mountain in Phoenix, Arizona. It has been a fun and challenging journey. Thank you again for the shoes.
This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only. Winner will be announced on Friday, Feb. 15.
