And so I finally let my husband, an enthusiastic barefoot runner (read more about his adventures in his Trails Unlimited blog), to convince me to join him in his practice runs. Before I knew it, he has registered me to the Energizer Night Race Manila 2014 and I had barely a month to prepare!
There was no turning back then. For four weeks, I practiced running at least two times a week and, thanks to the Runtastic app I downloaded on my Windows Phone, I got to keep track of distances, speed, and even calories lost.
