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.”

FILA recently joined the trend of having “foot gloves” with their Skele-toes line and I’m glad to be one of the early adopters of one of their latest models, the Glide.  Here are my thoughts.

My First 16.8K Race with adidas King of the Road 2012

The recently concluded adidas King of the Road 2012 is probably the most “international” race in the Philippines so far this year with runners coming from all over the world, one of the most colorful, and has one of the best finisher’s medals.  Here’s the story of my first 16.8K race.

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:
