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. Missing to do a long slow distance (LSD) the other weekend, I made up for it last Sunday. Meanwhile, the day beforeContinue reading “One Fine Sunday Morning Run”

Another 5K Race (for me) at the FIC Run Event

25 March 2012 – Personally busy with other things and for some reason, I totally had forgotten about checking the time for the 5K race. I blogged about this event yet here I was not remembering either the assembly time or the gun time, oh well, my bad, I said to myself. Based from previousContinue reading “Another 5K Race (for me) at the FIC Run Event”

Bumping Into Coach Titus One Fine Sunday Morning

11 March 2012 — Sunday was the perfect day for long run.  My training program indicated that I need to run 25-36 kilometers.   But with the errands and other activities I did the previous day, the half marathon race held the previous Sunday plus feeling a bit exhausted, I chose to run whatever distanceContinue reading “Bumping Into Coach Titus One Fine Sunday Morning”

Tanay Revisited

Three months have passed since I first set foot in Tanay, Rizal, a place where some of the country’s serious athletes train and the first 50K Philippine Association of Ultrarunners (PAU) race was held.

Running Calamba City to Sta. Cruz, Laguna

It all started with an invite from Joseph aka Prince asking me to join a long run in Laguna together with some Takbo.ph runners. I decided to go for two reasons. First, it fitted my marathon training schedule. Second, though I’ve visited some of Laguna’s municipalities before, it was a good chance to see andContinue reading “Running Calamba City to Sta. Cruz, Laguna”

Time is Running for Recovery Run

Running a marathon can really drain one’s energy. That is, if it’s your first. Well, you don’t have to agree with me. There are those who are just too blessed with strength to run back to back marathons unscathed. I finished the full marathon injury free and I wanted it that way. L-R: Anton, ownerContinue reading “Time is Running for Recovery Run”

A Swarm of Yellow Runners

I experienced running my first half-marathon during the Adidas KOTR last year. This year, I signed up for another 21k KOTR race with the objective of beating my previous PR and treating it as a long run (adding 5k before the race and another 5k after). With fellow KOTR finishers from Takbo.ph and Happy FeetContinue reading “A Swarm of Yellow Runners”

A Sneak Peek of the QCIM Route

Thankful that Supertyphoon “Pepeng” (international name: Parma) cut across northern Luzon with little damage, I joined the QCIM long slow distance or LSD last Sunday, Oct. 4. I arrived at the University of the Philippines (UP) Oblation, the assembly area, at ten minutes before 4:30AM. More than 60 runners joined in this simulation run. (IContinue reading “A Sneak Peek of the QCIM Route”
