Mizuno Wave Rider 12As to the performance of the shoes, I tested it in the recently concluded Step-up for a Cause Race at the Fort Bonifacio sponsored by QTV11. I felt comfortable running with it since it has roomy toe box. It’s perfect for me because I observed that my feet expand during long runs. The cushioning was good enough for me, too. I was very much satisfied with it. It was really a big help to get advice from experienced runners like Hector and Neville of Ultra Pinoy Runners. Thank you very much guys!
Today, Turby (Turbulence) will be retiring from road races because of worn out soles. The last battle we fought together was the Condura Half Marathon (2:25). I will now be having the Nike trail running shoes for training and hopefully a trail run (who knows?) and the Rider 12 for my racing shoes especially longer distances.

To Relly and Gem, thank you very much for the support and another pair of shoes coming from you will be certainly most welcome. It will also be nice to hear that you will be running too (soon?)!

We were actually invited to the house warming of Swthrt’s brother, Ed at Avida Residence in San Isidro, Batangas City. We arrived there Saturday afternoon and stayed overnight. At dawn Sunday, Swthrt and I scheduled a run from Barangay San Isidro to Barangay Tulo (Swthrt’s place) since we will be missing weekend races scheduled on that date. The distance was estimated to be more than 10K (~10.6k). We started at around 5:00am from Avida Residence and we were joined by Ed who also ran with us during the last Christmas break.

The early part of the course was new to us up until Sitio Gulod. Swthrt felt early a slight pain on her shin but still opted to continue on. We had a comfortable pace as compared to our usual long runs since we have to follow Ed’s rusted pace (his last run was in December).
