Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho: Marathon Fever in the Philippines

Last Saturday, a news and public affairs television show featured a segment about marathon fever in the Philippines.  It talked about the exponential growth of running events last year, the reasons why Pinoys join, gadgets related to running, history of marathon, and a lot more about running as a sport

The segment also gave a 9-second exposure about barefoot running and minimalist shoes (starts at 5:10)

If you are like me, who forgot and missed the show, here's the said segment for your viewing pleasure
