A Night at the Fort

Thursday, August12, 2010.  After four consecutive crazy days of overtime at the office this creature needed a break.  Yes, sitting down in front of a computer for hours on end is tiring especially if your brain does all the toiling.  After calling it a day I figured, “it’s a nice night to run.”  Of course I’d also need the approval of one of the stakeholders—the weather.

From the office I headed off to the gym and upon leaving our building, to my surprise the sky was clear.  Upon arriving at the gym I was horrified with what I saw—tons of people!  In fact all the lockers were occupied—the signs cannot be clearer: get out and run!

As part of old Thursday night habit I ran from Ortigas Center (starting in front of San Miguel compound) to Bonifacio Global City—my favorite running spot in the Metro that I haven’t been to in quite a while.  I used to be in BGC at least twice a week: Thursdays for Nike Running Clinic and eventually easy runs from the office, and Sundays for races.  Recently I can be away for months on end!  Each time I do I always see something new, kind of makes me wonder if BGC’s development gets a boost while I’m away!

Typical Thursdays route: Ortigas Center to Bonifacio High Street via EDSA - Kalayaan - 32nd

adiNation Philippines (Ortigas Group) Pilot Run

The adiNation of Runners (aNR) Philippines is a running club with a goal to provide members with value-added training and special privileges to train and motivate them to achieve new fitness levels.  Here in Metro Manila aNR is staged initially in four locations: Ayala, Alabang, Ortigas, and Bonifacio High Street.  This program co-presented by takbo.ph.

Exclusive privileges:

  • aNR adidas specials
  • aNR running clinics
  • Coaching advice from the running clubs
  • adidas product highlights

The pilot run of the Ortigas Group was held last night in Pearl Drive in front of the University of Asia and the Pacific, headed by Luis (The Gingerbread Report).  Although there wasn’t much publicity about the event there was a good set of runners that joined the event.

Joining the Group Run is free and you don’t need to be adidas gears to do so.  Just drop by the assembly area before the run starts, fill up the form, and you’re done!  You also get a “passport” that your group head would sign afterwards which you should keep for future runs.  Only one signature per week thought is allowed.

You can sign-up before the start of the run
