The Great UP Run

UP Diliman will again host a major running event for the benefit of the UP varsity teams.  Here are more details about this event dubbed, “The Great UP Run.”

Food Trip: Pino Restaurant

It was one of those days you went out to run to get some conviction to have good food after.  And it was some really great food that we found in Pino Restaurant in Malingap Street, Teacher’s Village, Quezon City.  Here’s our sumptuous discovery.

Sugar Rush

The UP Pre-Medical Honor Society and Diabetes Philippines, Inc. will be holding a benefit fun run on November 14, 2010, which is also World Diabetes Day:

Back on the Road: Traversing Metro Manila

It has been a long time since I was running on the road and since I had no race or group runs for the weekend I decided to do one of the routes I’ve long wanted to do: traverse Metro Manila from East to West.  Like my first road run along EDSA which followed MRT-3…

Botak Paa-tibayan: The 10-Mile Perspective

The recently completed Botak Paa-tibayan at UP Diliman could be described as an offshoot race from Botak 100 last June 28, 2009 when it was originally set but was deferred due to the Influenza A scare.  A lot of schools suspended classes then which were some of the “target audience” of the race.  Botak was…

Homecoming: Men’s Health Miracle Run

The Men’s Health Miracle Run would always be a special race for me and many of my friends as this was our first race ever when it started last year, just a couple of months ago.  Now on its second time around it’s only natural for me to return to the race that started my…

Weekend Battle of the Men and Pinays

This weekend packs an interesting set of races for both the men and the pinays: Men’s Health Miracle Run and Senator Pia Cayetano’s Pinay in Action. March being Women’s month, it’s only fitting to have the last weekend pay tribute to women, and see the Pinays in action.  The Pinay in Action All-Women Run would…

Nike Run Clinic LSD

Earlier today Nike Run Clinic held its first LSD at UP Diliman.  This was the first opportunity we had the chance to do so since there are no races this weekend, and what’s good with this special session of the Run Clinic was that it was open to everyone, and even included free Rush Fitness…

Run for your Resolutions

This was one of the announcements made by Coach Rio during the last Nike Run Clinic session: an LSD at UP Diliman Campus on Sunday, January 11, 2009.  Here’s the excerpt from the Nike Running website: Kick Start your 2009 Resolutions Published: January 4, 2009 It’s that time of year again, a new year with…

PhotoVendo Moment

Each race is unique and memorable and capturing those moments are made easier by PhotoVendo, the brainchild of Ben M. Chan (photographer on the run).  You can’t always bring someone along to take your photos and not everyone has an SLR camera, and it’s definitely difficult to bring a camera along in-race and take photos…

UP ICTUS Run and the Takbo.ph Peeps

The weekend wasn’t that good if I talk about my knee, but otherwise it was great!  I was able to complete my goal for the year of reaching the 100K mark (yay!), and I get to meet the guys at takbo.ph. Meet my new friend: anti-inflammatory painkillers Before the race started walking was something I…

100K Here I Come!

Believe it or not, I only started running, in races of course, last August, and roughly four (4) months since I started, my first 100K (race-only cumulative distance) is almost here. Before December I had set a goal of reaching my first 100K this year but back then it was mathematically impossible because of the…
