Starting over and relaunching the blog

It took me this long, way too long, if I’m honest. The truth of the matter is, it’s an experience that I don’t want any fellow blogger to go through. The blog you’re seeing right now is more like almost 5 months  in the making, as I had to tap the expertise of fellow running bloggers RunningContinue reading “Starting over and relaunching the blog”

Women’s Health POP-UP Studio Fitness Series

The workout is timed, up to eight minutes. We were grouped by four where each had to do and execute properly the moves—from running a 100-meter distance, push ups, squats to ball slamming.  Each had to count and the total number of times we did each workout would be the total workouts done by our group.Continue reading “Women’s Health POP-UP Studio Fitness Series”

It has been five years since my last aquathlon.  My first attempt was in an open sea competition in Corregidor.  It was not really to test how fast l was in swimming,  but it was to get over my fear of swimming in an open sea water.  I learned to swim late (in my earlyContinue reading “A Podium Finish at the Splash ‘n Dash Aquathlon 2014 (Leg 2)”

27 July 2014 — Joining the MILO® marathon this year was not part of my game plan.  But I guess fate intervened when I suddenly found myself invited during the event launch and signed up for the full distance.

Soleus 30-km Valley Trail Challenge Finisher

29 June 2014 — It’s about time… I normally try to avoid trail races.  Being a road racer for quite a number of years now, I’m confident in my own turf.  But for trail running on unknown place, I got scared somehow as trail racing is a new thing for me.  I received invites for a testContinue reading “Soleus 30-km Valley Trail Challenge Finisher”

A Princess for Over an Hour: Feeling Royal at the Etude Princess Run

25 May 2014 — The Etude Princess Run 10K marked as my 36th 10-kilometer race and second 10K run this year.  If multiplied together, it’s equivalent to running the Bataan Death March Ultramarathon three times, a fifty-kilometer race from Tagaytay to Nasugbu, Batangas, and about a four-kilometer distance of slow running as warm up exerciseContinue reading “A Princess for Over an Hour: Feeling Royal at the Etude Princess Run”
