BGC Quickie

It was a weekend and I was about to meet some old time friends in Bonifacio Global City (BGC).  I was a few hours early and I have my trusty camera with me.  The sun was also setting so I thought of getting some quick shots around BGC to see what has changed.

Running about in Metro Manila’s Roads: Cramming for RU2

Time flies when you’re having fun, and also when you’re quite busy.  Being a one man team at work made me forgot all about the rest of the world and before I noticed it, it was just a week before it’s time for my first 32K of the year, Run United 2 (due this Sunday!).

Lahar Chronicles: Columbia Eco Trail Run Pinatubo Encounter

It was another sleepless race—that’s one of the downsides of having an out of town race.  But it doesn’t matter—what matters is that after two years, I’ll be back onto one of my favorite trail routes of all time: the lahar fields of Mt. Pinatubo!

Sleepless in Manila: Completing the Run United Trilogy

The “Afroman” distance of 32K was the highlight of last leg of the Run United Trilogy, and to buy time for some leisure runners of this event, the race was held very early at 3AM!  It’s so early that it was a “no-sleep” race for me. View this post on Instagram 32K. And they call…

BGC’s Newest Playgrounds: Terra 28th and Track 30th

If you’ve seen Bonifacio Global City’s development for the past few years you’ve seen how fast former open spaces have been lost to development, but thankfully BGC is giving back some of those lost grounds with its newest playgrounds: Terra 28th and Track 30th.

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 Hot and Wet Weekend

Unrested but not restless—that’s my weekend.  A very hot Saturday matched with a wet Sunday. Hot Saturday at Nestea Fit Camp Hot We’ve been aware of Camp Hot since its first week but we’re too preoccupied doing everything else to give it a try until last Saturday.  It started with a casual online chat about…

Run Free—Like Crazy?!

Have you ever thought of running like you used to when you were a child—no schedules, no pace, no distance, no pressure—just pure clean fun?  I was lucky enough to have a chance at that last night at Bonifacio Global City (BGC) during my long run.  I was pretty bored of the typical Bonifacio High…

A Year Into Running: The Secret to an Ultramarathon

When it comes to running, the last thing on my mind was an ultramarathon—I had an idea how far a marathon is by looking at the route taken by the Milo Marathon which is “just” about 42K, but an ultra, especially 100K, was unimaginable.  In fact the first time I’ve heard of the term “ultramarathon”…
