Five Shoes for Different Occasions

When I started running I had no idea about picking the “right” shoe and just wore whichever fits me well and looks “decent” enough.  In fact, I don’t think that what I wore during my first race were running shoes!  (They were most likely badminton shoes that I wore when that was the “it” sport.)  Fast forward five years and much more than a dozen pairs of shoes later, I have a list of five running shoes I like wearing for different “occasions.”

Summer is Here! My Long Overdue Return to Puerto Galera (Part 2)

(Continued from Part 1)  The following day was a total opposite of the day before: it begun with rains and for the most part cloudy.  Just as when I was seriously considering running barefoot on the beach!

Warm and cloudy

Shoe Review: Merrell Trail Glove

Merrell recently introduced to the Philippine market their Barefoot Collection and I was lucky enough to win a pair of their segment for trails, the Trail Glove.  At first glance it looks like a regular pair, but given its name with a matching Vibram name on its sole, it had got to be much more than that!  And so the trails of Nuvali, Sta. Rosa, Laguna became the testing ground for this pair’s review.

Merrell Barefoot Collection Arives in the Philippines

Merrell Philippines has finally released their “barefoot” collection to the local market!  Of course it’s not the “real” barefoot running (which means absolutely no footwear) but minimalist running to be more accurate.  What’s with all the fuzz about minimalist running?  Here’s a brief story courtesy of Merrell:

After a very, very long time this runner finally got a chance to run the tracks of the PSC Arena (formerly Ultra).  It was an unanticipated visit, with an unexpected result.

Even my VFF got left behind!

Meet My New BFF: VFF Sprint (Vibram Five Fingers)

I’ve always been fascinated with Vibram Five Fingers (VFF) ever since the first time I saw it.  At first I thought it’s crazy because back then I always thought that shoes should be thick and soft (cushioning).  Fast forward, I started running, and learned all about my feet, and eventually, shoes.  Even my first post on this site is about picking the right shoe for the right feet.  When VFFs came, all that became obsolete—“as long as you have feet VFFs are for you,” ultramarathoner Ronald Declarador states.
