Unboxed from Unbox: Somnio Running Shoes Blogger Contest



I am a soon-to-be 30 year old female, a stay-at-home running mommy, and started running a year ago. I'm not a fast runner, I am content with joining the races and just the simple pleasure of just running to slow down my life and to fight the urge to stop. My good health is my reward and I plan to keep running until I get older than old. Then I've read about the Somnio Running Shoes Blogger Contest.. I've never been the type to lust and drool over shoes but the runner in me wanted to so here it goes!

So why do I want to own a pair of Somnio Mission Control running shoes (aside from the fact that I'd love to buy one but I can't afford to buy a running shoes worth P7,000+ lol)? and what will I do with the shoes? Well, let me explain further:

1. I want to own a pair because I am a mommy runner and I am in love with this shoes. It looks like a lot of a love goes into handcrafting these piece of art and I will be rocking these kicks with the love that they deserve!

2. I also discovered that I am more comfortable with the comfort, motion control and flexibility in a shoe. I’ve suffered from sprains and ankle injuries and it looks like the Mission Control series, being the world's first fully customisable running shoe, is the right shoes for me and it sure looks like the perfect way for me to venture into this new world. Things have changed a lot in the past years and I am looking forward to many more years of discovery with this new pair.

3. I just learned today that Sonio means Dream in latin and this pair is just too good to even dream about for a dreamer like me. :)

4. Just 'cause I like and not just want…but NEED these shoes. On top of that, it's so hard for me to find the right running shoe and I don't want to become one of those runners who run and go their whole running lives without ever having the right running shoes. I got a good feeling this is the right one for me! hehe

5. This would be perfect timing cause the current running shoes I currently own are completely trashed, worn out & desperately in need of replacement .. and a much better one that could stand up to some serious pounding to come out…and with some form of divine intervention, here's the Somnio Running shoes! Praise the Lord! :)

6. I will surely finish a marathon with this pair of shoes. It's a great way to inspire myself to run and to take one step closer to my dream of becoming a marathoner! Akshuli, I would love to complete my first full marathon in a nice pair of Somnio running shoes! And what’s more fitting than wearing these awesome shoes in my quest to becoming a certified marathoner? ;p

7. I would be ‘walkin’ up and down at the treadmill in the gym with this kick-butt shoes.. it's a great motivation to hit the gym more often! I would be walking tall around the gym and even in dance sessions in those shoes! I'm sure it would really help shape up my big behind! LOL

8. I have left bits and pieces of my old running shoes on my past races. I have many more miles to run, trails to explore, and roads to conquer. I could use some Mission Control on my feet!

9. I ’d be walking EVERYWHERE with them! and I mean I'll wear 'em pretty much all over the place! In the mall, around the house, at the park, at the grocery store... And this summer, they would be joining on my trail runs. roadtrips and short treks too. I'm guessing we'll be goin places baby! :D

10. I’ve been eyeing these shoes for sometime, but haven’t had the financial grounds to indulge. So, I would definitely sport them around and I would prolly get myself a tat. If that would make you pick my name. hahaha

11. Last but not the least, it would be the best birthday gift ever! I know I deserve one... hihi I just know it! LOL Simply put in a short poem...

I'm a mommy on the run everyday
Running to catch up, running late..
Running for errands, running to feel alive.
Sometimes I run in circles, sometimes the days just become a blur.
I’m on the run everyday and so I need this Somnio running shoes for my birthday! :D
