Photoholic Baguio and Panagbenga 2013

I have been to Baguio quite a number of times that I knew my way around there.  Thanks to previous races and visits.  These really helped.   When running became a top priority, singing with the choir took a backseat.  Thus, it has been a while since the last time I saw some of my choirmates.  I recompensedContinue reading “Photoholic Baguio and Panagbenga 2013”

Explosions Rocked 2013 Boston Marathon

I was surprised to see the news on TV early this morning. This is a gloomy day for all runners and organizations around the world.  In a moment of silence, please join me in praying for those who have perished and been injured (and still fighting for their lives) and the solving of the blast incidents at the BostonContinue reading “Explosions Rocked 2013 Boston Marathon”

An Awardee: a Recognition that Never Was

The  unused Mardi Gras mask with materials carefully selected by yours truly for this event  I laud RunRio for its noble cause—giving back to runners and recognizing their achievements in a ceremony prepared solely for them.  But no matter how small or grand an awarding ceremony is, missing out a small detail such as a nameContinue reading “An Awardee: a Recognition that Never Was”

One Fine Sunday Morning Run

It has been roughly almost two weeks since my visit to Baguio City for the 2013 Panagbenga a season of blooming flower festival, but still have yet to write an article about it.

Zoot Women’s Ultra Kapilani Shoe Review and Giveaway

I used to wear stability running shoes some years ago because my foot strike needs to be corrected.  Selecting the right running shoe, which functions as your second foot by the way, requires a bit of skills and experience through trial and error.  It’s like, as what I have written before, a quest for the Holy Grail.  SoContinue reading “Zoot Women’s Ultra Kapilani Shoe Review and Giveaway”

An Award for this Blog!

This blog was meant as a vehicle to hone my skills in writing.  What better way to do it than by journaling something about that interests me most, running.  It never occurred to me that I could be a blogger since writing is my waterloo in my secondary years.  I tried to improve step-by-step, didContinue reading “An Award for this Blog!”

Ecstatic with Unexpected Podium Finish

12 January 2013 — On my way out, a light rain began to fall and the sky was overcast. Crazy it may seem, but I was heading to the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) complex at about 5:15 AM to join a one-kilometer run.  Yes, you’ve read it right.  One kilometer, not my usual race, uh, but “why this?”  SufficeContinue reading “Ecstatic with Unexpected Podium Finish”
