First Quarter Summary

It was like yesterday when we celebrated New Year’s and now we’re entering the second quarter of the year.  It had been a very fast three months for me and surprisingly most of my goals for the year are already achieved; add to that a lot of firsts. 2009 Goals Get a Garmin. This was…

Feb Summary: Raceless But Not Runless

February was a great month, but in terms of races it’s not as fulfilling as I had expected.  Major races during the month were scheduled on the second half, which was the time I left for US, resulting in a raceless month for me—a first since I started running regularly. Being raceless doesn’t really mean…

Happy Run with My New GF

The Happy Run was my first regular race with my new GF—GF405 that is. The race turnouts for all categories were very good but since it was handled by Coach Rio everything was in order, another well organized race from Runrio.  The weather was quite cooperative too, it didn’t rain and it was cooler than…

The Bests of 2008

Runningpinoy’s First “Monthsary” Online

It was like yesterday when I was still dreaming of putting up a blog site for my newly-found love, running.  Now, I am celebrating my blog site runningpinoy’s first month! I originally targeted to launch this site on my birthday last November 07 but due to some “technical difficulties” I was formally able to launch…
