Back on the Road: Running Commonwealth Avenue and C5 (Again)

It’s been ages since I last run on the road outside of races and I’m glad I finally did!  I didn’t join any races for the month of September but I’m glad that something came along to motivate me out of my bed.

Don’t you just love Sunday morning traffic? 😀

Product Review: Unilab Active Health Sports Gel

(Update: This product has been discontinued) To those running long distances (usually half marathons or longer) energy gels serve as a very convenient source of nutrition: they don’t spoil easily, comes in a minimal packaging, and provide an energy boost without needing to chew.  All brands available in the local market is imported, until now, as Unilab introduced the first Philippine-made energy gel simply known as Active Health Sports Gel.

2010 in Pictures

2010 was the year running took a backseat from my list of activities, but in between my great hiatus there were some interesting events that transpired.  Here’s a look back at how 2010 was for me:

The highlight for the first month of 2010 was my return to running with a 50K test run of the Bataan Death March (BDM) Ultramarathon (first 50K of the actual route).

I just returned from one of the best experiences of my life, in one of my favorite places in the Philippines.  I sure have a lot of stories and pictures to share, but for now here are some select few photos that I could share while I cook up my narrative:

runningpinoy: Season 3 Preview

Goodness gracious!  I didn’t realize that my second season (anniversary) of running had just passed last August 17!  And as of that date I accumulated a total of 2,012 kilometers (since August 17, 2008, my first ever race).  I’ve no idea though how much of it was earned during the last 12 months, but it’s at least 1,000 kilometers.  So I guess that wraps up my second season of running!
