It was really fun at first and gravity really boosted my run, but after a while, I began to panic because I was going too fast and I couldn't stop running. I didn't fall (Thank God) because the hill was not that steep enough to make me fall and totally loose control.

I still remember the rubber shoes I was wearing at that time. It was a pink and white high-cut rubber shoes which was supposed to be the "in" shoes during the 90s. Unfortunately, it was not meant for strenuous running.
After the incident, when I took off my shoes, I saw calluses and corns on my feet. I had an impression that because what I did was a strenuous activity, not even rubber shoes can protect my feet from calluses, pain, etc. so I stopped running like that from that day on.
----------------------------------------However, last February 14, 2013, Adidas has released ENERGY BOOST, a new running shoe with revolutionary cushioning technology that provides the highest energy return in the industry. And just like that, running will never be the same.
ENERGY BOOST will do three things:
- Boost your cushioning - uses proprietary cushioning material, BOOST, that allows the runner to feel a continuous energy return.
- Boost your conditions - has BOOST material that's proven to be three times more temperature resistant than standard EVA material, thus providing a more consistent and comfortable run.
- Boost your comfort - features Adidas Techfit technology, which provides optimal comfort and support to the entire foot while in motion.
Adidas ENERGY BOOST retails at Php7,995.
