"…i am not a religious man… but my body is my temple… the pavement is my church… every step, a grace from God… every breath, a silent prayer … every distance, a holy blessing… every run, a fervent worship…" ;-P

It may be cool in the Northern Hemisphere for the Holiday 2014 season, but it’s summertime in the Southern half of the world. With the new Breathe Collection, Nike brings summer-focused performance benefits to sport classics. To combat the heat, the collection features breathable, lightweight sneakers that are comfortable enough to keep up with any warm-weather activities. In other words: sneakers for the spirit of summer.

In South America, Brasil’s hot and humid conditions inspired Nike design with the on-the-go lifestyle that switches from the beach one minute, to running and training the next.

The Nike Design team integrated lightweight and breathable materials into the footwear collection to help free feet from oppressive summer temperatures.

The Nike Breathe Collection deconstructs two of Nike’s iconic silhouettes, transforming classic Nike Air Max and Nike Roshe Run sneakers into ultra-breathable, lightweight shoes. The shoes have been stripped to their core essentials — layers of reinforcement removed and heavy materials eliminated. Spacer mesh creates pockets of air between the upper materials to allow for increased airflow.

The Nike Breathe Collection’s Air Max Lunar1 styles are infused with Nike Lunarlon foam technology, which refines cushioning by taking comfort and support with a responsive foam ride.

Distinct colorways for men and women offer vibrant summery hues. The Nike Breathe Collection is now available on nike.com and at select Nike retailers.


Nike Air Max Lunar1

Nike Air Max Lunar1 is the definitive union of lightweight cushioning and flexibility. This season, the beveled ribs of Lunarlon foam are highlighted by a colored window that complements the mesh upper.


Nike Air Max 1

Stripped of its traditional leather, suede and synthetic overlays, the Nike Air Max 1 Breathe sheds weight and improves breathability. A dynamic fit tongue ensures the foot stays secure and moves with the body, while an updated Phylon tooling makes the sole ultra-light and super comfortable.

Bold piping offsets the gray mesh to give this season’s Air Max Breathe an updated look.


Nike Roshe Run

The definition of cool style, bright colors dominate this season’s Nike Roshe Run. The men’s colorways boast vividly hued outsoles, bringing a strong contrast to the neutral uppers. The women’s looks take the opposite approach, with white outsoles supporting vibrant uppers and accented with a white Swoosh logo.

Having gone on a year long hiatus from running in 2014, I sorely missed the great races that came and went this year. Missed most of all was the Takbo.PH Runfest. My team TKR after all was borne of that event in 2010 and will be celebrating 5 years together come 2015.

Rumors of a 32K distance in this year’s Runfest remained just that – a rumor. Just when i thought I might have to wait until July next year to finally see if the 32K will happen, lo and behold, Takbo.PH is pushing through with it as early as January!

 One early Saturday morning, I went with a couple of friends to do some trail running. Granted it’s been a little over twelve months since my last one and just a few months since my surgery which mean zero training so I figure there might not there be any running involved on my part. A lot walking I’m sure and maybe some crawling.


I figure what better way to shake up my practically dead limps than to hit the trails of Rizal via Meljohn a.k.a. “Boy Praning or BoyP” Tezon‘s birthday run for school children called the Deadman’s 300. Set around the mountains of Sitio Tayang, Puray in Rodriguez, Rizal, it promised to be both paved and technical, narrow and sprawling , rocky and slippery, dangerous and scary but most of all scenic and challenging.


 Fellow runner friends converge at a McDonald’s in Commonwealth to meet up with the organizers.


Birthday boy and race director Boy Praning


After about a half-hour drive to Sitio Toyang, we arrive just as the event is being set up.


We expected a no frills gathering of kindred spirits but found ourselves almost like signing up for a legitimate running event with tarps, bibs, a sign up sheet and free food at the registration area!


I am number 131. Probably the only race bib i’ll ever really use myself this year.


During the briefing, BoyP was presented with cupcakes and fireworks. Happy Birthday!


Team Kamote minus Brian Tan Seng who went ahead and set up his aid station at the top of the mountain.
