My 2016 In Review

It’s that time of the year again when it’s time to look back at what was accomplished and what remains to be done.  I’m so glad that for the most part, I have mine documented here so I can make a lookback at the year that was, more conveniently.

Gear Review: Fitbit Charge 2

It was a little more than a week ago when I received my first ever Fitbit unit, the Charge 2.  My interest about Fitbit progressed after I posted their Holiday Gift Guide and I’m quite privileged to have received a Charge 2 for review.  Here’s my review of the Fitbit Charge 2.

TNF100 2016 Chronicles: Homecoming

It was 2010 when The North Face 100 (TNF100) was first staged in Baguio.  It was also the last time I joined.  This year, they’re returning to Baguio—and so am I!  And this is my story.

Game Plan: TNF100 2016 (50K)

It’s been six years since I’ve last ran TNF100 which was then also held in Baguio.  I did the full 100K back then and now I’m doing 50K so this makes it the shortest TNF100 race I’ve joined! 😀  This being my first time to do the 50K leg, I thought of making a guide for myself, but am now sharing for your perusal.

My First Painting on Canvas via Sip & Gogh Kapitolyo

I actually don’t know how to begin this post so I’ll just say what it’s all about—I did my first ever painting on canvas a few days ago in Sip & Gogh Kapitolyo branch, and I’m just ecstatic!  I can’t even paint my room and yet I came out with something that looked decent!

Fitness First Platinum RCBC Mini-Olympics: My First Podium Finish

After all these years, who would’ve known that I’d still be able to have a podium finish?  And more surprisingly, in a physical competition!  This is the story of my most fun gym experience so far, during the Mini-Olympics of Fitness First Platinum RCBC.
