I Need Arch Strap

I need arch strap and I have been to a lot of sports stores selling anything that supports injured or otherwise body parts but I can’t find one.

my foot

That is my foot, encased in an LP ankle support. It does little wonders, my heel spur is not that painful when I wear it. I’ve read about arch strap and that is one thing that I need to have. As in now if you please, 😀

Further reading brought me to superfeet insoles here and it got me interested. Would this be another answer to my heel spur pain? I hope I would be able to find a pair that suits me just fine when I do my round of sports stores again.

I hope superfeet insoles have supplies I can buy here in the Philippines!

Rains Are Here

Has 2012 summer come and gone already?


Photo from my Instagram account.

It sure does feel that way because we have been having rains almost daily. There are days too that we can still feel the summer heat. I’m sure tanning supply will be in demand once the rainy season kicks off.

We welcome the rains that make the summer heat bearable but the truth is, I am skeptical how the rainy season will be considering how hot the weather has been these past two months.
