As anyone who pays attention to the news, social media, or the orbits of the sun and moon knows, there will be a solar eclipse today. Millions of Americans will ignore the advice of their parents and stare directly at the sun, but as Manfred Mann says, (or Springsteen for the traditionalists) “that’s where the fun is.”
To restate what you learned in elementary school, if you look at the SKY during a solar eclipse, you will see that the moon moves between the Earth and the sun such that the Earth sits in the SHADOW of the moon.
If the capitalization wasn’t a dead giveaway, we are particularly excited to look at the SKY while sitting in the moon’s SHADOW because Mizuno recently released their new Wave Sky and Wave Shadow running shoes! To make it even more exciting, we are ready to give a pair of both shoes to three lucky winners! That’s right, two free pairs of shoes! In order to enter our contest, we ask that each entrant write a creative tagline for both the Wave Sky and the Wave Shadow. The three people with the best taglines, as selected by the Secret Council of Running Warehouse, will receive an email letting them know that they have won. Creativity, clever thinking, and comedy are encouraged!
The contest will run from now until 11:59 AM PST on Wednesday August 23rd. Multiple entries will result in disqualification from the contest.
**Before entering, please review the contest rules in the link below to ensure eligibility.**
This contest is closed. Thanks to all who participated!
