akalain mo yun....

a fellow runner from takbo.ph celebrates his 1 year runn-iversary today, Aug.17,2009. when i opened his blog, i saw that his first run was with Men's Health Miracle Run last year.





tapos napaisip ako.



teka, hindi ba ang unang beses kong tumakbo eh nung unang Miracle Run din?

kung tutuusin, nung umpisa pa lang akong tumakbo eh, feeling talaga ako, hindi ako nag practice, feeling ko ang lakas ko kasi nag babadminton ako, pero sa totoo lang eh mahirap pala yun! hindi naman ako gumamit ng hindi running shoes talaga. in fairness eh ginamit ko ay tunay na running shoes, tipong lumang luma na sha, na out of retirement na eh binuhay lang ulit. eto sha oh :)

naka lagay sa time ko sa 10k was, 1:19 daw, wahahaha pero sa totoo 5K lang un (talk about super bagal and super taba diba?)

hahaha hassle diba?

after nung miracle run eh di na muna ako tumakbo. so kumbaga sa relationship, eh cool off muna kami. and this cool off would last sobrang tagal, tipong the next race i was aiming was, the next miracle run (which was slated ng march 28, 2009 diba ang tagal!) feeling ko kasi sobrang ang hirap ng 10k, so dapat ganon katagal ang pagttrain ko dapat.

so far ok naman ang experience ko with running :)

after that i told myself, 2009 im going to change, im going to be more active, and incorporating running in my regular routine. medyo nag serious lang ako ng december when i gifted myself a new pair of serious running shoes.

after that, i tried looking for RUBUs (running buddies), which then led me to takbo.ph.

joining that forum led me to seriously train for races which started with the March 8 LSD.

more and more friends were gained during the Condura CLP and Condura Run mismo, and also the Miracle Run. sobrang addictive to the point that we had an SSD the day before the Miracle Run mismo.

isang patunay ng sobrang ka adikan eh itong feature sa akin sa taho.ph.

marami pang mga sumunod na karera, takbo, inom at kung anu-ano pang masasayang bagay at realizations while running, during, before and after races, pero bottomline, this addiction will not stop. may pauses at times, pero wala na atang titigil dito :)

dati ganito lang ka konti ang mga kasama kong tumakbo


take note, mga officemates lang yan (well, more on ex- officemates na, kasi wala na sila sa Summit, ako andito pa rin).

ngayon ganito na ka dami.


(pero konti pa yan sa totoong group pics. for more pics from the different races, click here. and here.and here.(these are JUST some of the pics taken during numerous running events and other running related events.)

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.…
