My First Half Marathon of the Year at Run United 1 (2013)

Time flies so fast and before we know it, it’s already the middle of March!  New Year seemed like yesterday and with all the crazy work that I have in the office I didn’t notice the first leg of the Run United 2013 series coming.  Of course I wouldn’t just let RU1 slip just because…

Ped Xing

Metro Manila residents may not notice it but traffic lights in progressive cities are now being replaced by more energy efficient LEDs.  Aside from having more even and brighter lighting than the old incandescent traffic lights, these new LED traffic lights have new tricks up their sleeves: most have timers on how long before the…

My First 21K: Carbon-loading from MRT to MoA

Today I finally did two things that I really wanted to do: Run along EDSA and do my first half-marathon—all this first day of February. Inspired by Team Bald Runner’s runabout in EDSA (Pasay City to Monumento) and motivated by GF405 I finally amassed some guts to finally do it, even if I had to…
