The Five Stages of a Runner

My friend, Ruth, told me that she borrowed two books about running from her boss. I thought it was merely to tell me that she’s back into running and is reading some materials about running. Few weeks after, I learned that she borrowed that for me so I can read them. Thanks Ruth for theContinue reading “The Five Stages of a Runner”

Happy Run, 25 Jan. 2009

What does it take to make some people to feel happy? First, find out what they appreciate. This requires attention to the other person. Second, take time to know what they enjoy. Sometimes it’s easy for us to get lost with our busy lives that we fail to notice it. It takes a lot ofContinue reading “Happy Run, 25 Jan. 2009”

Takbo Para sa Ekonomiya, 18 Jan. 2009

I missed running PSE Bull Run last year. I didn’t wake up on time. And most of my fellow runners raved about it. So, I said to myself, “I will not miss it the second time around.” I registered days before the Christmas holidays. I was told that race bibs and singlets were not yetContinue reading “Takbo Para sa Ekonomiya, 18 Jan. 2009”

Winter WonderRUN, 14 Dec. 2008

It was 6AM and yet it looked like 5AM back home. I shivered against the cold as I went out of the hotel. This was my first winter practice run. My route would be from my hotel to Nathan Road, the main thoroughfare in Kowloon, Hong Kong to Victoria Harbour. The harbour is simply theContinue reading “Winter WonderRUN, 14 Dec. 2008”

License to Run, 7 Dec. 2008

Woke up too early today. Excited? Not, really. Jitters? None. There must be a very good reason why am up early. I’ll be joining the 25th Executive Classic 10k event. This is the country’s only running event that is exclusively for executives, businessmen and professionals. Runnex is celebrating its 25th anniversary run and I don’tContinue reading “License to Run, 7 Dec. 2008”

East Practice Run, 30 Nov. 2008

East practice run is tantamount to seeing Hinulugang Taktak, a water fall in Antipolo City designated as a National Park by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources. The first time the invite was posted over our running e-group, my interest was sparked. Couldn’t make it though for two reasons. Firstly, I was not familiarContinue reading “East Practice Run, 30 Nov. 2008”

Christmas is in the Air, 22 Nov. 2008

That’s right! Christmas is fast coming. It is just around the corner. Christmas carols were heard on radio stations when the first ber month hit the calendar. Only in the Philippines, I guess. And there’s a lot of things to do. Get the tree and lights up, buy presents and who knows what else. SantaContinue reading “Christmas is in the Air, 22 Nov. 2008”
