First Quarter Summary

It was like yesterday when we celebrated New Year’s and now we’re entering the second quarter of the year.  It had been a very fast three months for me and surprisingly most of my goals for the year are already achieved; add to that a lot of firsts. 2009 Goals Get a Garmin. This was…

Homecoming: Men’s Health Miracle Run

The Men’s Health Miracle Run would always be a special race for me and many of my friends as this was our first race ever when it started last year, just a couple of months ago.  Now on its second time around it’s only natural for me to return to the race that started my…

Weekend Battle of the Men and Pinays

This weekend packs an interesting set of races for both the men and the pinays: Men’s Health Miracle Run and Senator Pia Cayetano’s Pinay in Action. March being Women’s month, it’s only fitting to have the last weekend pay tribute to women, and see the Pinays in action.  The Pinay in Action All-Women Run would…

Run 21K, Be On the News

Newspaper that is.  As Condura Run’s 21K SkyWay feat wasn’t great enough, now you get to brag about being part of this historic run.  I got news from takbo.ph that the race result will be published on The Philippine Star courtesy of Vitwater.  This also adds pressure, I mean, motivation, to have “decent” finish times…

Practice What You Preach

It’s quite funny actually, I’m giving advice to other people to taper-off for the Condura Run but last night I’m the first one to break my advice.  As I was writing my previous blog yesterday night I was having a dilemma if I was to continue running or not.  Although it seemed like I was…

Pre-Race Dilemma: To Run or Not To Run?

With the Condura Race right around the corner I’m faced with a dilemma: to taper off or to continue running (with ease). Just last Sunday I did my longest run distance-wise, 22K LSD along Commonwealth Ave.  What complicates my situation was that before this LSD was a lack-luster 3 weeks that only garnered a total…

Weekend LSD: Commonwealth Run

It has been a while since my last LSD and this time around I got to run one of my most anticipated locations: Commonwealth Ave.  It was a long overdue run that was held back because of a lot of events and this time I got to finally execute the plan into action.  That LSD…

Feb Summary: Raceless But Not Runless

February was a great month, but in terms of races it’s not as fulfilling as I had expected.  Major races during the month were scheduled on the second half, which was the time I left for US, resulting in a raceless month for me—a first since I started running regularly. Being raceless doesn’t really mean…

More Interesting Finds

Yesterday we managed to go to Dick’s Sporting Goods at Easton Town Center to find some sporting goods we can take back to the Philippines.  The store reminds me of R.O.X. in the Philippines except that it’s at least four times as large and it’s not exclusive to outdoor sporting goods.  Our timing may have…
