About Me


My name is Roselle also known as Running Diva, or RD to some.

Got hooked into the sport of running since 2005 and wrote about the highs and lows of my running experience using the name Jambalayamuzika on BlogSpot, which went online on July 2007 and ultimately carried the Running Diva PH trademark in 2014.

Running Diva PH is a blog or journal of my adventure as a runner, or as a multisport enthusiast, on any races here and abroad where I’m one of the competitors, anything about the local running community, eg upcoming race, talk, fitness activities, cycling, product launches and reviews, blogging events, training plans/tips, any other sport events among others. Sometimes may do something about music, or simply a day in the life of an athlete or a runner. So when inspiration and butterfly thoughts strike, I write.

I did not start running because somebody asked me to become a runner. It was one day, out of the blue, I started to run simply because I wanted to. Suffice to say that afterwards I was with the right people in the right place at the right time.

Looking back, I’ve been into road, trail, ultra marathon running, and some multi-sport races—mostly aquathlons— before transitioning to triathlon or tri (signed up for 2016 Cobra IRONMAN 70.3 Cebu, Philippines Asia-Pacific Championship and became a member of Endure Multisport) in 2015, which, by the way turned out to be the right decision, and the rest is history.

At a time of unprecedented health (COVID-19) crisis and recent web hosting service concerns and challenges, my blog of 14 years is still here because of real friends.

I’m touched, inspired and motivated to keep on writing. Whether training for a run, riding a bike, preparing for upcoming tri races, traveling, or simply enjoying the outdoors, know that a story comes to life. May you, dear readers, continue to support to the new stories that matter. Yes, we’ll do it together again!
