FRUIT? WATER?

An insider's look on behind the Secondwind Zone in the recently concluded The Bull Runner Dream Marathon.

a week has passed and there have been a lot of stories shared on the newbies experiences on their first marathon. we runners know that euphoric feeling that we experience upon completing our runs, much more if it is our first marathon. people say that you would never forget your first time.

this event was also a first for most of the second wind guys. for most of the races, they are the ones who are receiving support from the different races' marshals and their own support crew. this time, the guys support ALL the TBR marathoners and pacers, etc.

Here are some of the people you might have met during the TBR Bull Sessions, and during the marathon itself.

Team TAMA!
A group of girls (and boy) who dreamt of pursuing their dreams of having their first full marathon. Headed and coached by Hector Yuzon & Mikey Macainag, the group is composed of tambays at the shop.  This group…

what motivates YOU?

a friend twitted this link, and it got me thinking how should companies treat their employees. I do believe that there are a lot of companies with old school thinking that MONEY is the source of all motivation. upon listening and watching this video, it made me realize WHY i am like this, why despite the salary, etc, there are still things that i would like to DO.


still not getting me???

watch this video  and you'd understand what i'm talking about :)

kapag tumibok ang puso.

after learning how to bike last week, the next most logical thing to do is to get my own bike (agree?)
so since my classmate ellen was not available for today's session, i opted to check out and look around for possible bikes.

prior to today, i've already asked around where to get built bikes, or even bike parts just so i'll know in case i do get to built my own bike. so i've asked around some friends if they can accompany me to cartimar to check out stuff there.

being a newbie, i needed someone who knows how to get to cartimar, and at the same time, thank goodness for Coach Pio (hehehe!) for giving in to our request so off we went to cartimar.

since it was my first time to go to cartimar, i was not sure what to expect, other than, puro bikes ung pupuntahan namin, and that i should be looking for a "cheap" starter road bike that i can practice on and at the same time use for competitions (pagka mahusay na ako). so yun. i was not able to see much nice road bik…

no more kenkoy runner...

after being egged on to try biking (or even to start learning how to bike), i finally did it :)
i was finally able to start the second leg of my three-step "diabolical plan" as tracy would state it.
after running for almost a whole year already, i've decided to try to study how to ride a bike.

you might be wondering how come i don't know how to bike, well, i actually don't know either hehe

anyways. here are some of the pictures from session 1 :)

this bike made sure we we're confident enough with out balancing skills before we moved up to the next level.
happy new riders
classmate ellen (aquathlete extraordinaire) and i finally enjoying our (borrowed) bikes :) thanks to papapio and coach rj :)
