Century Tuna Ironman Philippines 2018 Weekend

One of the weekends that I always look forward to each year is when Century Tuna Ironman is held.  It’s one of the few times in the year where world-class triathletes come to the country and show why they are called “elites” in the sport.  It’s also that time of the year where new Ironmen and Ironwomen are forged.  Here’s my recollection of the historic weekend when the Philippines hosted its first full-distance Ironman.

Caught with My Pants Down: My First-Hand Account of the Century Tuna Underpants Run

Lost and Found

I was in the midst of covering the 2017 Century Tuna Ironman 70.3 Subic Bay when a lapse of judgment caused me to break my phone and lose my recently taken photos with it.  Months later, I was able to revive my phone and was glad to recover the shots I thought would be lost forever.

One of the photos I took while running; until now I don’t know what this ship docked in Alava Pier is…

Race Recap: Salomon X-Trail Run 2016

I had forgotten when I last ran the trails so when the opportunity to do so came, I quickly grabbed the opportunity.  Knowing the past editions of Salomon X-Trail, I knew it wasn’t going to be easy—and it really wasn’t as we all figured out.
