Nike Run Clinic Session 21

Yes I’m still keeping count of the number of sessions, and we’re more than halfway through the entire Clinic program.  If you’re wondering why my posts skip a session it’s because I usually am not able to join the Friday sessions of the clinic at BHS (traffic going to Fort Bonifacio on Friday nights are…

Happy Run with My New GF

The Happy Run was my first regular race with my new GF—GF405 that is. The race turnouts for all categories were very good but since it was handled by Coach Rio everything was in order, another well organized race from Runrio.  The weather was quite cooperative too, it didn’t rain and it was cooler than…

Through Bianca Gonzalez’s Help The Kids Learn Project and Congresswoman Lani Cayetano, The Happy Run hopes to help the school build much needed classrooms to help the kids of Taguig get the education they deserve…

Nike Run Clinic Session 19

Like the previous session, last night’s session was jam packed!  For some reason the clinic just seemed to double its participants.  Running must really be getting popular!  As usual we started with a 5 lap easy warm-up run around the oval (2K) followed by the routines.  I arrived a bit late (a nasty habit) so…

TNF Thrill of the Trail Experience, Part 3

…just passing by MP1 (Marshal Point 1) I was asked nicely by the Marshal what my race number was.  I think my face just light up that moment—I was, incredibly, back in the race!

TNF Thrill of the Trail Experience, Part 2

TNF Thrill of the Trail was held January 19, 2009 within the premises of Evercrest Golf Resort in KM 72, Batulao, Nasugbu, Batangas.  It’s basically a loop around some very good and challenging trails, with the 20K having two laps of the approximately 10K loop.

TNF Thrill of the Trail Experience, Part 1

It was truly an amazing race!  I just returned home from one of the best races I’ve ever had!  I have so many stories to share so please bear with me until I’ve compiled the pictures and completed writing about it.  I’ll share it here even if it takes on an installment basis. 🙂

Air Max Burger Anyone?

Olle Hemmendorff together with 7 other creatives/designers/photographers/artists were commissioned by Nike to interpret 8 Nike Sportswear icons.  He chose Air Max 90, and according to him: “In the tradition of material innovation of AM 90, I constructed a running shoe using the most powerful, most durable and most delicious material known to man: hamburger.” I…

Nike Run Clinic Session 17

It’s another great run session at the Ultra continuing where we left off from last week. Warming up was a bit of a problem for some as the temperature was mild.  It takes a bit more time before our muscles get really warm and we perspired less, but this made running more pleasant.  Like past…

New Gears for New Year

It’s barely halfway into January but I decided to get some additional gears for running for the activities I planned for the year.  It’s one of the best times to buy as there are countless discount sales in various stores and malls—a lot of items aren’t really out of season—just to stimulate sales. Meet the…
