Boracay Beach Run

Ever since the running bug bit me a year ago, I’ve been trying to find new places to run in and different people to run with. During the TM 2011 district convention in Manila, I got a couple of Toastmasters to run an easy 5k on Roxas Boulevard.

Go run and watch “Thelma”

I unabashedly admit that I watched Thelma because it’s a movie about running. I was  feeling pretty down when I saw this but came out of the theater having a little more hope for local cinema. Thelma is loosely based on the story of Elma Muros. The first act is set around Thelma’s life in […]

Run For Brooks

Posted on

I was 90 pounds overweight when I started running. Because of this, I was really careful, bordering on paranoid, on choosing equipment. Particularly with shoes. It took me a long time to finally decide what running shoes to get.  I did my homework by getting my foot analyzed at RUNNR. The internet is a godsend […]

Aside from the really cheap fee (350 bucks) […]

It was a cause  […]

Lactobacilli Shirota Strain!

My uncle mentioned in passing that he saw that there was a Yakult run in the papers. I love Yakult. And so I set out to find more. Turns out that the main event was a 10-mile run and it was NOT going to be held at Bonifacio Global City. After several runs in BGC, […]

Run United 1 2011 aka RunRio showing off

Runrio is the country’s premiere running organizer. Period. No Erase. If there’s one thing that Run United 1 was, it was a showcase for RunRio’s bells and whistle that makes their runs totally stand out. World-Class even. I almost forgot to register for this run. I ended up signing up on the last day and […]

Running On EDSA was too good to be true

Running on EDSA was too good to be true. Well, it was too good to be true. I thought that this run would run a significant length of EDSA. White Plains to Robinson’s Galeria is NOT a significant length of EDSA!!!! But still, any route outside of Bonifacio Global City is worth investigating. It ended […]
