post-baguio thoughts

the past few weeks prior to baguio have been a whirlwind of events which revolves around running, work, family and the balance i need to give to ALL these. so far, it seems like the most i've been giving priority/ attention to is my running. improvement in my running time has been greatly noticed by my runner friends , (even to the point calling me "hoff"). for me okay to, but then again, i realize that there are other facets of my life, facets that i tend to overlook at times, primarily because i've been focusing on my running.

at one time, on the way to makati, i was talking to a friend about this topic. I told her na parang i'm not being able to maximize my potentials anymore. knowing myself, i know that if i focus on it, i can do it. i can achieve my goals. no matter what other people might say to me, it will not deter me from doing what i set my mind into doing.

this made me think of what i wanna do in life. do i want to be in an office? do i wanna go out and explore the world? do i want to work in a sports setting where i can do both marketing AND at the same time immerse myself into sports further?

i do believe i need to re assess myself soon, actually SOONER. where do i want to go? who do i want to accompany me in my journey?

like what a friend replied to one of my blog entries, i need to enjoy this race called life.
yes, life is a race, actually, a series of races.

in this fast-paced mary, we need to ask ourselves on what is MY gameplan for this. what approach are you going to use, positive split, negative split, chill running, steady running or "WOW ___________" moments.

ang tanong ko now is, anong PACE mo? (how steady can you handle all the obstacles that we will face along the way? are you going to sit back and whine? or will you think of cheating the race?)

you tell me. :D


  1. apir!!!

    nakita ko ito sa isang billboard sa SLEX...
    "LIFE IS A JOURNEY... SIT BACK AND ENJOY THE RIDE!!!"kung sino man gumawa nun billboard na yun... pakisabi, masyadong malaki. nakaka-distract sa mga nag mamaneho. =)

  2. It's the journey, not the destination tim hahaha :)

  3. Steady or chill pace ako most of the time. Every now and then PR attempts and tempo runs. Minsan pag walang choice, bandit na lang. :-)

  4. isa lang ang masasabi ko tim... go!

  5. When you're young, you tend to relax your pace, thinking you have time in your hands. As you grow older, you realize there's not much time left and then you increase your pace. But no matter how fast your go, you WILL NEVER, EVER make up for lost time. Why? Because your body simply cannot do anymore what your mind wants it to do...its called ageing.

    I say you live life to the fullest NOW. Be at the fastest pace you are able to do.

    LIFE is a natural positive split bro. You start blazing and then lose steam on the succeeding kilometers...;-)

  6. My love for sports and my background in production has, surprisingly, turned into something lucrative. It doesn't feel like a chore, it is work, but it is something that I love. Even the stress that comes with organizing my schedule and staying up late is enjoyable. You'll find it too in the same way I found mine. :)

    Sports and marketing would be great!

Maximizing Potentials

Running has always been my favorite me-time activity. It does not only help me clear my mind, it also helps release toxins from my body. Even though running has been my 'sport' and therapy since 2009, I still have not maximized my potential with this sport.

Tonight, I tried to rekindle my love affair with running by jogging (yes, jogging, the slower version of running?) around UP acad oval. I said to myself, just one round of continuous jogging, and I'm done. Mahirap nang mabigla ang katawan, baka may sumakit pa kinabukasan, etc. So I did na my slow jog, and as I was getting into the groove of things, it slipped my mind that my intial goal was only to do one round.

Slowly and surely, the endorphins started kicking in, and I was trying to shuffle my feet faster, slowly increasing my pace, but still a managable one for someone trying to get my groove back. There have been times when I felt a bit of discomfort, maybe because it has been quite a while since I last had a decent…

why do i hate mizuno

Mizuno sucks. BIG TIME.

yup. you read that right. why?

point #1: they are not a mainstream brand.

mainstream in a sense that they don't even have well-known product endorsers unlike other sports brands around the world. i mean, how can they expect their products to sell like pancakes if they're like that diba?

point #2: they do not promote much of themselves.

not much print ads if you'd ask me. i work in a magazine publishing company and i don't see much of their products splashed all over our magazines. i don't see them having television ads too. not even in the newspapers does mizuno have anything that will lead people to buy their products.

point #3: the products are not that "fashionable."

as compared to other "mainstream" brands, you won't see your regular juans and marias wearing mizunos together with their jeans to the office. you don't see them usually wearing mizunos when they go around the malls, walking, shopping, chilling out. nope.…
