Nike Run Clinic Session 04

This was my first Nike Run Clinic session at Bonifacio High Street and unfortunately I got there quite late.  It was my first time to go for a run session on a Friday so I actually forgot about it until before 7PM!  By that time, being a Friday and a payday, traffic was really heavy…

Next Race: 32nd National Milo Marathon Finals

Just before November ends another great race is upon us, none other than “the country’s premier running event” (quote) the Milo Marathon. This event indeed has bragging rights to say so because it probably is the most participated running event in the country.  I registered today myself and a friend (last day of registration) for…

Nike Run Clinic Session 03

It was another great running session at the Ultra. I can’t really say it was more difficult although the activities were definitely more than the previous sessions. The warm-up routine was longer: 2K (5-laps around the oval) followed by stretching exercises, butt kicks still included with new routines added. The main activity (for our group)…

Running Log: Unicef’s Walk on the Child’s Side

This was another very well organized race I’ve joined and one that had a very good race course.  It had a lot of sponsors and one of the biggest races I’ve been in terms of participant.  It was my first time running in McKinley Hill so I don’t know what to expect, I just looked…

Running Log: Race for Life

This was my second Saturday race (the first being adidas King of the Road) and the first without an official race singlet/shirt.  I was really surprised by the huge turnout of this race.  This simply proves that amount of freebies (or lack of) deter runners from joining a race.  Being a fundraiser it was justified…

Runner’s Horoscope

From Lonerunner’s blog (just for fun, not to be taken seriously): Scorpio 23 Oct-21 Nov Symbol: Scorpion Element: Water You will register 8 runners but only 5 will pay you.  Tip: Try not to register runners under the sign Virgo. By coincidence perhaps or by fate this has actually happened to me!  I was really…

Another Busy Weekend

This weekend is going to be another busy one.  First off is the Nike Running Clinic which is tonight at Nike Bonifacio High Street.  I tried cancelling my registration for tonight but the system says that it should be done 48 hours before the schedule, so there’s still no free slot for tonight.  Tonight’s session…

Nike Running Clinic Day One: Assessment

The Nike Running Clinic has formally started.  Unlike the classroom-like session of the orientation, last night’s session makes you feel like an athlete, well, sort of, because the session was held in the Ultra oval.  Plus you have real coaches to assist you and answer your questions. I got to Ultra past 7pm (I walked…
