As great as running is, sometimes there are problems to troubleshoot. A pet peeve of many a runner is the steady stream of sweat leaving their eyes burning and stinging with every step, making it hard to even see the course ahead: not what you want interfering with your running mojo! Thanks to our friends and partners at Mizuno, you can train hard and stay in the zone, all the while keeping the sweat out of your eyes… without having to sweat over the price!
