A Race to Remember, 16 Nov 2008

The 7th New Balance Power Race at Clark, Pampanga I registered for the New Balance (NB) Power Race during the Run for Hope fun run two months ago. As race day got nearer, the more apprehensive I became and couldn’t help thinking whether I could make it to the finish line or not. Just aContinue reading “A Race to Remember, 16 Nov 2008”

VSO Kabahagi Ako Fundraising Run, 9 Nov 2008

This is it! The most awaited first 15k run. I made sure that I sleep early but maybe due to excitement, I didn’t sleep well… again! This has been a problem ever since. Though the race started late but the weather cooperated. To top it off, running inside a cemetery is a different experience. TheContinue reading “VSO Kabahagi Ako Fundraising Run, 9 Nov 2008”

Isuzu Shake, Rattle and Run, 31 October 2008

Halloween (or Hallowe’en) is not really a typical Filipino tradition. In the 19th century, Irish and Scottish immigrants brought this to North America and was embraced as a holiday celebrated on October 31. It includes activities such as trick-or-treating, ghost tours, bonfires, costume parties, visiting haunted attractions, carving jack-o’-lanterns, reading scary stories, and watching horrorContinue reading “Isuzu Shake, Rattle and Run, 31 October 2008”

Renegade Runners during the 4th October Run

I was grounded for five days for being sick. Having cough and colds, didn’t stop me from doing my usual practice run. I’ve heard of the October Run but didn’t register. I had to follow Coach Joar’s advice, that is, to rest. I felt better today, so, I stayed at Ruth’s place so we couldContinue reading “Renegade Runners during the 4th October Run”

Paabilisan Road Race Series, 19 October 2008

Just an easy practice run for me after running my first 21k the Sunday before. Can’t push myself even if I was told by a fellow Happy Feet runner to aim a sub 1:00 time. I had a slight fever the night before but I wouldn’t want to miss this run. In fact, I lookContinue reading “Paabilisan Road Race Series, 19 October 2008”

New Balance Raising Hope 2, 21 September 2008

I decided to join the Raising Hope 2 Fun Run in Rockwell, Makati City instead of the PMI Run in UP for some good reasons. Firstly, I did remember that i missed this run last year due to a previous commitment and I didn’t want to miss it once again. Secondly, the venue of theContinue reading “New Balance Raising Hope 2, 21 September 2008”

Mamang Pulis Subic Legacy Run feat. a Happy Feet’s Late Evening Marathon Experience, 7 September 2008

For the second time around, I ran Subic Legacy Run. This time with a different atmosphere as most of the runners were from our very own Philippine National Police force. I learned that there were over a thousand runners who participated the run, including PCSupt. Samson R. Tucay, Race Director and who retired last SeptemberContinue reading “Mamang Pulis Subic Legacy Run feat. a Happy Feet’s Late Evening Marathon Experience, 7 September 2008”
