Saucony Philippines has released their latest running shoes series this week. These are the Saucony Triump ISO, Saucony Hurricane ISO and Saucony Zealot ISO. Saw these three gorgeous looking running kicks and I easily fell in love with the Saucony Zealot ISO. It looks awesome and was so light at only 8.3 oz. It may not be as light as the Kinvara 5 at 7.7 oz, but you can’t barely notice the difference in their weight at all.  Continue reading “Saucony Triump, Hurricane and Zealot ISO series running shoes” (27101)

Saucony Guide 7 review

After using the Saucony Guide 7 in one marathon, two half-marathons, one 11K run and several weeks of training, I guess it’s now time for me to write a review of this running shoes. So here we go.

First thing first, coming from using the Saucony Kinvara 4 for almost a year, I could easily feel the difference between these two shoes. Technically, the Kinvara 4 is lighter than the Guide 7 and you can easily feel that difference in their weight the first time you run with the Guide 7. I definitely run faster using the Kinvara 4. But I could run longer without feeling pain and fatigue on my knees when using the Guide 7. Continue reading “Saucony Guide 7 review” (2192)

My wife is planning to buy me a new pair of running shoes as a Christmas Gift (yes, we’re not fond of surprises). So as early as now I’m scouting for the nicest shoes both in terms of functionality and aesthetics.

Garmin Forerunner 10 Review

garmin forerunner 10 review

For almost a month now, I’ve been using the Garmin Forerunner 10 GPS Watch whenever I do my runs on the road. It’s an entry level GPS Watch from Garmin which records the most basic running information that most runners need to know.Take note that advanced runners will probably find this GPS Watch very basic, so if you’re one of them, you might want to look for another GPS watch.

Here’s my take on the entry-level Garmin Forerunner 10. Take note that prior to this, I used my iPhone and the Runkeeper app to track my runs, so it’s my first time to use a GPS running watch. Continue reading “Garmin Forerunner 10 Review” (7917)

What’s on Your Running Playlist?

running playlistSince I started running, there was not a single time that I didn’t bring my iPhone with me. It serves multipurpose whenever I run. Of course, I need a phone to contact my family especially in times of emergency. When you run outdoors, you’ll never know when you’re going to need your phone.

My iPhone also serves as a running tracker via the Runkeeper or the Nike+ app. But lately, I’m using my Garmin Forerunner 10 since running those apps drain my iPhone’s battery.

The last purpose of my iPhone is of course as a music player. I’ve created a running playlists containing my favorite upbeat tracks. I’ve got a couple of dozens of these songs on my running playlist which vary from David Grueta’s Titanium, to Coldplay’s La Vida loca to Happy Hour by the Housemartins. All the songs in my playlist give me the kick to keep on running. Continue reading “What’s on Your Running Playlist?” (1100)
