Not Another One?

That's what my long suffering hubby said when he saw me toting an Adidas paperbag. To tell you truth, I wasn't planning on getting this pair. It's just that, I happened to read about Adidas King of the Road (KOTR) race launched on Apr 10 and scheduled to be held on Sep 9. Since I happened to see the new Adidas ClimaCool Seduction shoes featured on the KOTR registration page, I decided to check it out at the store. Just look-see, I told myself.

Somehow, accidentally bought a pair and accidentally registered myself for the 16.8K distance.  It wasn't the ad campaign, it wasn't because Katy Perry and David Beckham hawking the shoes but it's the colour that got me. That and the fact that the staff at Adidas Gardens Mall are friendly. I am always a sucker for good customer service.

My most expensive shoes todate, setting me back RM449 and I bought it just for the "gaya"/style. Heh Girls can be so vain.
Shoes in current rotation. Nike Lunarglide+2 (for short distance only - nothing more than 7K or I'll start blistering), Brooks Glycerin 9 (currently for long runs), Brook PureConnect & Adidas ClimaCool Seduction. Should I add Skechers GoRun into the mix too? I am so bankrupting myself on shoes.
Remember the 1 Vision Run I did on Mar 4th? That blur run I did, finished, went back home only to realise that I got a placing? Yup, that one.
 
 
After more than a month, I finally got my hands on the placing medal and the cash prize. Better late than never, I say!

A week to go for Energizer Night Race and running around the Sepang International Circuit. Let's hope I can do good timing next Saturday and not keel over with exhaustion doing a 15.5K run! Good luck me!

  2. My first response? "Eeek it's not pink!" Then I realized it's a heck of a lot nicer than pink. You go girl! I'll keep 'em crossed.

    2. You should do that and post it up here. Do include all your heels.

      "Diamonds are girls best friend", nah, it's too expensive and would leave it to guys to settle.

      I prefer, "Shoes are girls best friend. And handbags come second".

    1. My most expensive pair of shoes would be my leather heeled boots I got when I was 3 months pregnant with Raimie. ^^

      Now, you don't see me buying a pair of shoes that cost more than RM200!

      I usually buy those promo/cheap shoes when I'm on vacation - those buy 2 pairs for 5,000yen or something. xD
