The Story Behind

An e-mail that didn’t get through my inbox caught my attention. I thought it was just one of those spam e-mails that one normally gets. It was an invitation from Nike for a trial run. I replied immediately to confirm my participation.

Arrived at Bonifacio High Street seeing some Happy Feet friends, coaches, takbo.ph forum runners like i2runner and Runningninja, and fellow bloggers. Weather condition that day was cloudy and with 90-percent rain. It poured later. The test run was postponed. Then we were given the new pair of Nike Lunar Glide shoes. Great! Nothing is sweeter than to get them for free!

Tony Atayde of Nike then briefed us about their newest running shoes. With me located at the far side of the tent, I didn’t get much of what he said except when I heard him say, “Write about the shoes. Use it. Do your own review. We can give you some materials about it if you need them. It will be out in the market by July .”

First time to use Nike running shoes and I found them pretty good for me!
