tri-kenkoy's wishlist

they once said that running was a 'cheap' sport.

that i have to disagree.

but now that i'm venturing into multi-sport, i do believe that this one is NOT a CHEAP sport.

other than having to focus on three sports, you also have to focus on having the tools to help you get better in all three aspects.


here are some items i want :)







bike jersey 
(i prefer something 'unique" so that it's easier to identify me from the group, be it in pictures or attendance check)


cushioned bike saddle
(for those long rides which at times make your family jewels feel numb)



cyclo computer
(for those lonesome rides where you don't want to count the number of loops for the total distance travelled)


blue helmet 

pedals 




road/ tri bike shoes
(for a more efficient pedaling)



tri-specific/recommended running shoes
lighter and has built-in 'drainage system'
(for those "i'm-tinatamad-na-to-run-but-i-have-to" moments)


gwapo shades
(to cover the pagod eyes and to disguise the hilo look from the photographers)



tri-specific goggles
(or any swim goggles that will protect your eyes from the water, fingers, paddles or feet while being in the washing machine)


there. a list of the things i want/need.
basing it from the pics themselves you can see that there are a lot of ways to burn your money by joining these type of sports. nonetheless, it's addicting!


*please take note that all of these items are NOT requirements for venturing into multisport, i just like to have them, for both perform and japorm :)

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.…
