Run from the heat with David Beckham’s shoes
Posted on

I used to run as a child and seriously thought I was good. But then a sharp pain would shoot up on my lower right side every time I ran.
My elder brother Manolo had appendicitis when we were kids, so I became paranoid whenever I ran and had that pain.
Now that I’m older, I found out I could no longer run. I mean I can run for only a minute and go back to walking.
Meanwhile, my other brother Dennis lost so much weight running, and I have all kinds of excuses not to work out, such as the traffic, the time, the hot weather.
If heat and running matter to you, here’s a running shoe which provides ventilation from all sides for improved running performance, endorsed by David Beckham, no less.

New ventilation channels across the outsole and the use of climacool® material on the upper of the shoe help sweat to evaporate.
In addition, the COOLEVER lining, a special clover-shaped yarn, keeps the foot cool, dry and comfortable during the run. The achieved performance benefit of 360° ventilation reduces thermal stress and discomfort during workouts and results in increased running performance.

The benefit of 360° ventilation is highlighted in the new climacool® launch film, directed by Nathan Price and developed by 180LA. While the rest of the city tries to get any bit of breeze with the help of hand-held fans and airconditioners, David Beckham enjoys a cool and ventilated run in his climacool® Revolution.

The new climacool® Revolution running shoe is available in adidas Sport Performance stores and other sports retailers nationwide with a recommended retail price of PHP 6,895.

The Last days of Pope John Paul II
Posted on

Tomorrow, April 2nd, marks the 8th death anniversary of Pope John Paul II.
I wrote such a brief entry about the event, even though it affected me profoundly during that time.
Last night I stayed up late watching this CNN documentary on the weeks leading to his death in 2005.
Finally it made me understand why the Pope chose to stay in position while physically suffering and deteriorating before our very eyes.
The documentary reminded me how blessed I am to have known him as Pope for 26 years, and helped me appreciate the subsequent election of Pope Benedict XV.

Happy Easter!
I know it’s a strange greeting. I find it weird whenever people say that, but I just heard the Pope say it on TV, so it must be a legit greeting.
Speaking of Easter, my husband found this cute video on how to make a scrambled egg inside its shell. He finds the weirdest things online. Enjoy!
