Unboxing: Nike Zoom Wildhorse

Finally I decided to get a pair of running shoes specifically for my trail runs. Actually I am not a fan of running on trail due to the requirement of extra work of shoe cleaning after a wet or muddy trail run.

However, I had to take this challenge as this trail running concept is becoming more popular to run organisors.

Nike Zoom Wildhorse

The Nike Zoom Wildhorse is designed to let you attack the trails. This low profile shoe offers cushioning and protection without weighing you down, while a dynamic upper moves with your foot for optimum comfort. The lugged outsole provides versatile grip, so you can take on any trail, no matter the surface.

  • Anatomical heel is rounded for more natural range of motion
  • Mesh inner sleeve wraps the foot for a plush, comfortable fit
  • Molded sockliner enhances underfoot support
  • Mesh upper with strategically placed overlays for breathability and support
  • Dynamic Fit technology for adaptive comfort and support
  • Reflective elements for visibility in low-light conditions
  • Compression moulded Phylon and Cushlon midsole for dual-density cushioning and a responsive ride
  • Nike Zoom unit for low-profile, responsive cushioning
  • Rubber Waffle outsole for durability and multi-surface traction

Running: Only The Best Completes at Newton Challenge 2013 (Kuala Lumpur)

Thank you 2013!
Ended my 2013 year with a 15KM run at the Newton Challenge 2013 Malaysia edition last 29 December 2013 which was held at Bandar Kinrara, Puchong.

Running Day
Reached Bandar Kinrara using Waze 30 minutes before the 15KM category flag off. Parking option is OK with traffic marshals guidance. Was running in my Corregidor Marathon, Philippines running tee instead of the official Newton Challenge this time for better visibility.

The running route was challenging with elevation up to 90 metres. For the first few KM, it was hard to see where you were running since it was still pitch black, early in the morning. There were no road lights along the route. Visibility was good as the sun comes up. 

This was my first time running in Bandar Kinrara. Lot of house development along the running route. Saw Mr. TriStupe supporting the event and runners by taking photos of runners on his bicycle.

Overall, I was having fun during this run since this was my last run for 2013. Sharing you some photos took with my iPhone5.
