In honor of Thanksgiving, I’d like to say thanks to you all for reading my blog over the last year. In the tradition of the season of giving, I’m joining up with some other fabulous blogging friends in a “Blog Hop”. What’s a Blog Hop? It’s a link to some of my favorite blogger friends who are also giving away some incredible products. You can find them all listed below and “hop” on over to their blogs to enter their giveaways. It’s a great way to discover some new blogs and some great products. Happy “hopping”!
A few months ago I did a full review on the Run Mino. I have been using my Mino and continue to think it’s a great product. They have given me 2 more Mino’s to raffle off to you all. See below to enter.
So what is a Mino? What does it do?
Mino was designed to monitor the wear & tear that you put on shoes and alert you when to replace them. The idea is to replace your shoes before you “out run” them to prevent injuries.
We all know you are supposed to replace your shoes every 300-500 miles but who can keep track of that? Does running on different surfaces affect the life span of shoes? Does the weight of the runner affect the shoe’s integrity? Does the style of a runner matter? I don’t know about you but I’ve always wondered how to know when to replace my shoes.
Mino is a 2.5mm thick soft foam insert that goes right under the liner or orthodic of your shoe. It is calibrated to count 400 miles of compression to the mid-sole of your shoe. Right smack in the middle of the 300-500 mile suggested life span of a running shoe.
“There are 6 progressive LED’s that light up once you hit a certain amount of compressions per the miles you have run. We count walk steps and run steps differently in the algorithm and average it all out b/c we have found some people walk and run in the shoes (and cross-train). We recommend every 3-4 weeks, lift up the sock liner, press and hold the blue “O” on mino to display the lights and see how far along you are.” (Runmino)
So whether you are a walker, runner or cross trainer Run Mino can help you determine when to change out your shoes. I picked the Mino for this giveaway because I think it has universal appeal. Anyone can benefit from adding it to their shoe. I’m so thankful to you all for continuing to read and comment on my blog and I know that 2 of you will enjoy using the Mino. Enter below and please remember to check out all the great blogs in the “hop”. A special thanks to the hostesses Runawaybridalplanner.blogspot.com & MCMmamaruns.com.
