make that change

it has been a while since i last wrote here in my blog. i was not even able to make kwento about my 2 milestones early this year, one would be my 3rd Condura Full Marathon and my second Ateneo Aquathlon.

for the past 3 years or more, i have always been associated with another brand (which, if you're an avid reader of this blog, most probably eh alam nyo na kung ano un haha).

i started running using another brand, but when a friend introduced me to it, i was initially intrigued, and eventually tried it out and found out that it was perfect for me. it was lightweight, offered ample support, and as time went by, the designs AND colors eventually became updated and attractive na rin.

we've had numerous encounters where i was challenged, but it was able to stick by my side no matter what. there were times when i felt like giving up, or it decided to give up on me, but we eventually were able to patch things up, and get back on track.

there were attempts also try on other brands, two to be exact, but eventually i went back to where i was comfortable with, where i was at peace with.

times have changed throughout the years, the relationship with the brand had its ups and downs, major falling outs, but eventually went back to the brand. or at least tried out to be at peace with the brand (primarily because there are a lot more people involved with the brand which i personally initiated the contact and introduced them to the brand) but i eventually had to move forward.

why the need to change? other than change being the only constant thing in life, change pushed me to get out of my comfort zone. i may have had stagnated in the brand i was with, to the point that i may not have been maximizing what else i could be, what i can make of myself, as a runner, marketer, and as a person.

I made that change to something that i believe can help maximize my potentials and at the same time, something i can push to its own potential, making both benefit. :)

Maximizing Potentials

Running has always been my favorite me-time activity. It does not only help me clear my mind, it also helps release toxins from my body. Even though running has been my 'sport' and therapy since 2009, I still have not maximized my potential with this sport.

Tonight, I tried to rekindle my love affair with running by jogging (yes, jogging, the slower version of running?) around UP acad oval. I said to myself, just one round of continuous jogging, and I'm done. Mahirap nang mabigla ang katawan, baka may sumakit pa kinabukasan, etc. So I did na my slow jog, and as I was getting into the groove of things, it slipped my mind that my intial goal was only to do one round.

Slowly and surely, the endorphins started kicking in, and I was trying to shuffle my feet faster, slowly increasing my pace, but still a managable one for someone trying to get my groove back. There have been times when I felt a bit of discomfort, maybe because it has been quite a while since I last had a decent…

why do i hate mizuno

Mizuno sucks. BIG TIME.

yup. you read that right. why?

point #1: they are not a mainstream brand.

mainstream in a sense that they don't even have well-known product endorsers unlike other sports brands around the world. i mean, how can they expect their products to sell like pancakes if they're like that diba?

point #2: they do not promote much of themselves.

not much print ads if you'd ask me. i work in a magazine publishing company and i don't see much of their products splashed all over our magazines. i don't see them having television ads too. not even in the newspapers does mizuno have anything that will lead people to buy their products.

point #3: the products are not that "fashionable."

as compared to other "mainstream" brands, you won't see your regular juans and marias wearing mizunos together with their jeans to the office. you don't see them usually wearing mizunos when they go around the malls, walking, shopping, chilling out. nope.…
