RUN United Leg 3: Running the Afroman Distance the Second Time Around

Courtesy of JpegMendoza and Deemenrunner The Afroman distance was one of the races I looked forward to running this year. Completing the trilogy was no longer my goal since I already did that in 2010. And as race date got nearer, I couldn’t contain my excitement. Well, it has been months since my BDM 102Continue reading “RUN United Leg 3: Running the Afroman Distance the Second Time Around”

A Greek Goddess at the Adobo Run after Dark

When this event was launched, I knew then that I wanted to try joining, this time running in costume.  Haven’t done this before, you know.  But my dilemma is finding the appropriate costume.  Appropriate means a costume that’s not hard to put on when running or worn over a running gear.  The first thing I did wasContinue reading “A Greek Goddess at the Adobo Run after Dark”

Nike We Run Manila: The Reds

After such a long hiatus from racing, it was a comeback for me to run in short distances such as the recently held Nike We Run Manila 10K.  My goal for this race was to test whether my speed work training has improved my running pace.  Running in ultra distances has changed my pace sinceContinue reading “Nike We Run Manila: The Reds”

Runner’s Blues, of Being Slow, and Running the Takbo.ph Runfest

A few months back I already notified my good friend Queenie, fondly called “Que”, that I would not be joining the Takbo.ph Run Fest.  Not because I didn’t want to.  Just not having the same zest to run after finishing the BDM 102K Ultramarathon sometime in March.  Yes, it has been over three months yetContinue reading “Runner’s Blues, of Being Slow, and Running the Takbo.ph Runfest”

Newbie 101: The 5K Run

Running in a 5K race in 2007 after a year of hiatus from training, mind you, I could hardly reach the finish line.  Without proper training, a five-kilometer run wouldn’t be that easy.     Recently I came across two websites that discuss how the 5km races help one’s fitness and motivate runners to trainContinue reading “Newbie 101: The 5K Run”

Urbanathlete Diva

After a two-month hiatus from racing, I’m back into racing mode by joining this year’s Men’s Health Urbanathlon 10K race. I was really apprehensive whether I could finish this or not considering my fear with climbing up an eight-foot wall and going down on the other side. Plus, there was this high hurdle that IContinue reading “Urbanathlete Diva”
