Join the Running Revolution with Adidas Energy Boost.

I am not really a runner; meaning I do not run competitively. I run on my own in cemeteries in the morning, I run with my sister during fun runs and I run away from flying cockroaches who think they're pretty little butterflies but actually aren't. Having said that, I've done very little to boost my run because, well, I don't really need it.

There are times, though, that I'd want to literally run an extra mile and this usually happens when I run in memorial parks when I think I see shadows running with me. I psyche myself out every now and then to "keep things interesting" (I do this whenever I get the urge to walk instead). Hehe. Anyway, this is the part where I do something (that makes me look) crazy. What do I do? Well, first, I switch to the Party Party playlist in my iPod and put it on full blast.

Next, I start singing the song. Yes, while running and yes, it makes me pant the first time I did it but believe it or not, this is how I learned how to breathe correctly. I don't get that nasty pain on either of my sides anymore, too. I'm not entirely sure if that's the one responsible for that but I stopped having them when I sing while I run so I keep on doing it. Plus, it gets my mind off of those shadows I think I see during my morning runs.

And last, I dance. Yes, I dance while running. It probably looks weird - I haven't seen myself do it - because I get weird glances from other people. I used to just pace my run according to the beat of the song but when it got boring, I started swaying my hips and raising and waving my hands in the air like I just don't currrrr... FYI, that's when I got the weird glances from the people who see me. Wow. Shocker, right? Haha!

My way's not that crazy, if you ask me, but it sure does make me look like a loon. Not that I'm proud... I don't care, though. At least it gets my mind off of the ghost stories I make up in my head while running in an almost empty cemetery so early in the morning. Each one of us has a different (read: weird) way of boosting our runs so don't judge! Haha! Adidas, though, is coming up with ways for us to boost our runs further.

Recreational running - I don't know if I'm just making up this term or not - shouldn't stop you from experiencing the superpowers of the new Adidas Energy Boost running shoe. Only 200 pairs of this revolutionary cushioned running shoes are available for the Filipinos in the country and the first 100 are being sold in the Adidas store in Bonifacio Global City so if you want to get your hands (and feet) on a pair of these babies, be sure to head there on February 27. Each pair will retail at Php7995 and if you ask me, I honestly think it's quite affordable for a pair of limited edition running shoes. You can pre-order the shoes, too, if you want to have a pair for sure. Pre-order period is from February 15 'til February 24 and you can do this at the Adidas Boost website.
