BDM Test Run 2: Recon

February 21, 2010 together with some fellow BDM participants we returned to Mariveles, Bataan to continue where we left off from our last test run.  Most of the group weren’t able to join the previous test run so we started at +Km00. To BR: Sir could we request that you ease the rule about staying…

takbo.ph Class Video

If you’ve heard of a “class picture,” takbo.ph goes even further with its own “class video!” For whatever the reason this video came about would be a “secret” for now.  Stay tuned to find out what it’s all about but I got a feeling that some of you may already know. 😀

I Survived Mount Pulag (Part 2)

Apparently I wasn’t the only one who needs to be thawed.  At around 3AM I was hearing voices in our camp and I’m hearing water was being boiled for coffee—just the thought of hot coffee in your tummy during this freezing setting is already heaven.  I was still reluctant to get outside for coffee, but…

I Survived Mount Pulag (Part 1)

Mount Pulag became my “date” last February 14, 2010, Valentine’s Day.  It was also Chinese New Year that day so you may say there were at least two reasons that made that weekend special.

You’ve Got Mail!

An unexpected surprise came into my mail today that made my already awesome day even better: I actually forgot all about it, and I’m glad I did because now it came as a surprise.  And good thing that it still holds my marathon best time.  And yes, it’s laminated and it even comes with a…

Condura Run 2010: Déjà vu

Condura Run 2010 realized the vision of the Concepcion brothers of having their own marathon race.  For many runners out there it was also the realization of their dreams of running their first marathon.  For me I just realized that I want to run this race—no pressure, no commitment, and no target—just enjoy the ride. …

The Natural Joy of Running: Barefoot?

Barefoot running?  It can’t get any natural than that—before civilization was invented, or any form of it, that was how our ancestors moved and survived eons ago.  Today in the 21st century running had become very technical—pronation, supination, compression, hydration, fartlek, Global Positioning System, etc.—isn’t it nice to not think of any of these terms…

Condura Run 2010 Review

This year’s Condura Run went full throttle by finally having a full marathon route, a first in its short history and as with last year the Skyway route was its signature.  This event was handled by Race Director Rudy Biscocho of RACE.  Here are my afterthoughts of the overall race experience: Pre-Race Condura Run had the…

Condura Run 2010 Race Results

Congratulations all finishers!   Official race results for the Condura Run 2010 are now released. For distance freaks out there the full marathon distance registered 42.19K on my GF405 (official marathon distance is 42.195K) but with all the elevation gains/loss it is more likely over that (as with most other GF305 readings).

Pre-Con (Pre-Condura Run 2010)

Yesterday was the first day of race packet claiming for the forthcoming Condura Run 2010, Run for the Dolphins, and I couldn’t think of any way it could be better.  I arrived pretty late in Condura Village (across ROX, Bonifacio High Street) at around 8:30PM and I feared that claiming is already closed for the…
