Merrell Launches Barefoot Trail Shoes

April 19th, 2011 No comments

The long wait is over as Merrell takes off the curtain and launches its Vibram-soled Barefoot trail shoes. I was invited on the event that happened last April 8 at Merrell Concept Boutique, Market Market.

RUN, WALK, HIKE with Merrel Barefoot Shoes

Merrell offers 2 choices from their collection for both men and women trail runners.

Men can choose from Trail Glove or True Glove

Women have the Pace Glove or Pure Glove

I tried the Trail Glove and its like wearing a VFF Sprint with added cushioning. It felt great on my feet and I will definitely buy this one.

Some features of the shoes are:

 

 

Thumbie Remigio, a trail runner and trail run organizer said that “this is the best shoe he ever worn.” He wore the new Merrell Trail Gloves during the race where he finished strong at 3 hours 28 minutes and 38 seconds and placed 2nd in his age group and 8th overall. The Pilipinas Akyathlon required athletes to cover 21 kilometers of mountain trails 3,000 miles above sea level. He also plans to use the shoes on the his next international race event in Sabah.

Stoked at the 2nd Club Manila East Surfing Competition

April 18th, 2011 2 comments


Other than running and traveling, surfing has been close to my heart as it gives me high (even if I’m just a spectator). Oh yes, I’m a hopeless frustrated surfer wannabe. I have lotsa stories of not being able to surf the waves but that’s a different story. Let me tell you something that is more exciting…

Get stoked even while in Manila

I was surprised when I first heard about surfing in Manila. But then I found myself green-eyed when I was invited at Club Manila east to cover the 2nd CME Surfing Competition. Philippine Surfing Academy (PSA) organized this event for beginners- categories include kids (under 13), open women’s and open men’s.

Watching the heats breaks my heart, should I learned about this weeks before, I could have joined too as this is in my bucket list. Maybe next year? Kassy & Joko I’ll join you na on your next surfing trip me!

KID’S DIVISION

I was impressed on how the kids were able to ride the waves even if unassisted by EJ, the head coach of PSA. They were really pumping the boards and having the time of their life. I bet their parents are more stoked seeing them ride the waves like pros.

OPEN MEN’S & WOMEN’S

Clad with their board shorts and rash guard, everyone is competitive in both the men’s and women’s divisions. Jealousy was all over my limbs as I watch them paddle out, wishing I was in my board shorts and rash guard too. I can’t take it anymore so I went into our cabana and pretend not to care and just “surf” the internet. I should come again here.

The night is overcoming the sunlight and tiredness was already creeping in, I wasn’t able to finish the competition but I want to say “KUDOS” to Paolo Soler (PSA President) and PSA for promoting surfing in our country. Good job too to Manila Surfers Club and Club Manila East!

These are some of the photos I took during the event:

Get STOKED while in Manila, visit Club Manila East.
