adidas Springblade: God knows I’m not big on shoes but I’m lusting for this one

Actually my two-year old Climacool works fine and is showing no signs of breaking down, falling apart, or spontaneously combusting. BUT still. Springblade has been released internationally, while PH is still preoccupied with Boost, so I guess I’d be waiting a while. Here’s a photo taken somewhere in the web (not mine) :

And another one. Β There’s no foam on the mid-sole but Springblade is about three ounces heavier than Boost. Less cushioning, wonder how that feels.

I swear by the old gods. I will run more than once a week once I get these new kicks (the retail price is 180 dollars, it’s ridiculously expensive so you have to use it). For real! Lolz.

adidas King of the Road in review

I almost died you guys. But today’s experience, despite being a bad example, again proves that you can run without training. Haha.

My gun time is around 2:30 for 16.8 kilometers. Fit lolos and lolas can do better, I assure you, but we all have our limitations. Mine is brought about by smoking and an over all unwillingness to train.

There are a few things that helped me get across the Kalayaan Flyover with a bit of dignity like a super awesome running playlist, a shitload of bananas, energy gels, runners that make you think ‘dat ass’, the vision of having a nice breakfast followed by my first stick in 12 hours, and a two hour massage after that. I am waiting for the spas to open as I write. It also helped that the organizers hired a lot of cheerers present in the last stretch of the race–gay fairies, an Elmo mascot, clowns.

Heck, I was at the tail end of the race from start to finish but thank the high heavens there were a lot of people who ran much slower and who lost hope sooner, hahaha.

Next year would be a good chance to achieve a better time. Or maybe not.

I would love to run still, but sloth always gets the better of me.
