Giant


Running is a popular sport here in Manila. Practically every weekend there's a running event, usually sponsored by one big company. If you're into running (or any kind of sport actually) you've probably heard of Mizuno, a sporting company that makes one of, if not the, best running shoes in the market today (Incidentally, it's also the brand I use, and I must say they're very, very comfortable). Every year Mizuno sponsors a running event around April, and this year was no exception. Runners get freebies like shirts, bags, magazines and of course, the thrill of finishing a race with thousands of other running enthusiasts.

I think the giant will win the race.

I have to confess to not having used my running shoes for a long time. That is a rather big one!

As Exie says, "You masochist!" ;)

I would have been very tempted to climb up on it and jump up and down.

Hi Bill! Haha by default! No fair! :)

Hi Steffe! Come on get your trusty running shoes and head for the outdoors! I bet you'll feel like you missed running more than you realize! :)

Haynaku Ma'am Hilda, Sir Exie! Running is fuuuun. Plus I get to eat everything I want! :) Well, almost. Har har.

That is a huge shoe! Running is becoming popular here too. I didn't know Mizuno running shoes were so widely known though. My indoor shoes and PE wear were Mizuno :D

Hi Kaori! Yup, in fact Mizuno is so popular in the running community that not only does it sponsor events, it's actually formed its own running club, with training sessions and running clinics stuff. I think Adidas has one too, but Mizuno started it all. :)
