Right after Hector (from Secondwind) talked about wearing the proper shoes, I left my seat and went to the area where they were selling the shoes. I asked how much the Nirvana 5 was. I was hoping to get a good discount since they said that they will be on sale. Alas, they're were only 10% OFF . =( So from the original price of Php5,495, it was down to 4,945.50.
Still too expensive for me. My Nike Span 6 was still relatively new. Just bought it last month. But I REALLY wanted and NEEDED the Nirvana 5 to correct my gait so I won't feel pain on my ankles anymore. I fitted it and it really felt good on my feet. By just merely standing on them, I could feel it already correcting my overpronation. It's a miracle! :p
Anyway, disheartened and with a long face, I told the salesgirl assisting me, "Cge, next time nalang..."
I went back to my seat and continued to listen to the other guests talk. In between talks, they would raffle out towels from Gatorade, Mizuno caps, Mizuno bags, etc. There were two major prizes. A Suunto watch and a pair of Mizuno Running Shoes.
When they announced the running shoes prize, I stared at the bond paper intently and said to myself, "I will win that! That will be mine!" I said it about 3 times. Seriously. At that point, I already claimed it to be mine.
I guess it worked! When the time came to announce the winner for the shoes, I sat nervously and was even making my friends from takbo.ph laugh by acting all nervous. Another name was called. But luckily, he wasn't around anymore to claim it. So they had to grab another name from the bowl (actually it was a mini golf bag)...
"Julie Reyes"...they announced.
I couldn't believe it! They said my name! I won it! It's all mine, mine, MINE!!!
I walked towards the emcees, waiving to the crowd like a beauty queen. Yes, I seriously did this! Even pretended I was in tears..to their delight and amusement, of course. Haha!
So that's how it all went down. I still can't believe I won these lovely running shoes. I rested for a whole week. No running so I can recover from my injury. So I guess this is my prize for being a good girl. =)
Thank you, God! =)
