1. Head over to the December Group Run at Charles River Running tonight at 6 p.m. In store for lucky participants: Test drive the new Mizuno Wave Rider 16 - lighter, more flexible, great toe off are just some of the reviewer's comments. Come see for yourself. Also on the agenda - see the unbelievable wicking properties of Mizuno's proprietary Breath Thermo fabric. Stay warm and dry this winter while you log the miles. Post race refreshments at Limey's.
