Glad to be in PH!

I know everyone’s been aware of the constant increase in fuel prices, cost of living, registration fees, etc.—but you know what? The Philippines is still one of the best cost countries in the world!

Acknowledgments

I don’t have much time to share my thoughts, but I just have enough to spare and take the opportunity to thank some friends for their support and generosity: Nature Valley This token’s history goes way back during the TNF Thrill of the Trail in Bohol when I used a Nature Valley knapsack in the…

Boston Kreme: When is a World’s Best not a World Record?

Boston, Massachusetts is thousands of miles away from Manila, but the running highs that were set during the recent Boston Marathon were so contagious I can feel it all the way here!  The highlight of the event of course was the 2:03:02 time set by Kenya’s Geoffrey Mutai—the world’s fastest ever, but not the world…

My GF’s Facelift

Even since I had some issues with my GF I found myself less and less interested spending my time with her, and now that I have my new BB, her most formidable rival, she has more reasons to be concerned about our “relationship.”  As such, my GF had to undergo some major facelift.

Good Bye, BGC?

Bonifacio Global City, Bonifacio High Street in particular, had been a runner’s haven for quite some time now, but as its empty lots and the areas around it slowly but surely gets filled up, is it an early sign of good bye?

A Night to Remember: Takbo.ph Nightfest

Merrell Barefoot Collection Arives in the Philippines

Merrell Philippines has finally released their “barefoot” collection to the local market!  Of course it’s not the “real” barefoot running (which means absolutely no footwear) but minimalist running to be more accurate.  What’s with all the fuzz about minimalist running?  Here’s a brief story courtesy of Merrell:

Fun Back in the Run: The Hyundai Fun Run Chronicles

It’s been a while since I’ve run in Roxas Blvd., much more run a race with no expectations—just for the pleasure of having fun while running, and Hyundai was able to bring that with its first fun run.

Lucky 8: Globe Run for Home 2011 Chronicles

Time flies when you’re having fun… and also when you’re busy!  I’ve been so preoccupied with lots of different things that before I knew it, it was already the weekend of Globe Run for Home!  To make things more “interesting,” I’ll be doing 21K—the distance that I least like.
