sawa ka na ba

sa races na paulit ulit lang ang venue?

sa mga route na dun at dun lang din ang tinatakbuhan ng karamihan, to the point na pwede ka nang tumakbong naka pikit dahil memorized mo na ang bawat pasikot-sikot ng dinadaanang karera?

kung gusto nyo ng bagong pwedeng matakbuhang karera na hindi sa kadalasang tinatakbuhan ng madlang tao, sali na sa



ano bang mapapala nyo dito sa karerang to to start with?

other than ang route nya is hindi yung usual na BHS, MOA, UP, etc, this one would bring you to the newest hotspot in town Newport City!

actually, maganda itong route dito sa karerang ito kasi dito rin kami nag long run last year while training for Condura Marathon.
isa pang maganda sa karerang ito, ANYONE can join. if you are eyeing your family to get into a healthier lifestyle, i do believe this race would give each member of the family a chance to be exposed to running. meron 1K, 3K, 5K at 10K! hindi naman sinabi na kailangang harurot ka sa 1K eh, or sa 3K eh, basta bottomline, tumakbo ka (o…

where it all began...

it has been quite some time since i've with the pioneers of takbo.ph. the last time i remember hanging out with all the "oldies" of takbo.ph, it was the Rizal Day Run held last 2009. since then, a lot of things have changed. in two years, a lot of things happened (all of which are positive naman).


(my first takbo.ph banner group pic c/o Nuttybunny4 / doc Marvz)
from this "small" group, a lot of things have changed. back then, we "dreaded" the "long distances" which at that time (for us) meant more than 10K. I remembered those days when we were all enjoying the fun runs (literally and figuratively). running back then was simple and enjoyable. you run. you have fun. you eat afterwards with your RuBus, spend the whole Sunday afternoon with the same people you were with that same morning, only this time, its either eating, or drinking, or just plain old hanging out with them.


from the group above, different groups emerged, focusing on different f…

back to basics.

now that i have actually participated and finished my first ever multi-sport event (a mini-sprint triathlon at the recently concluded Speedo National Age Group Triathlon), some of my friends have been joking me that i would now have to change my handle name at takbo.ph's forum to either of the following : inTRImmyd8, TriTimmyd8, trikenkoy, mulTIMMY, or anything that would reflect my transition from being a runner to a multisport athlete (in this specific instance, a TRIATHLETE).

these thoughts actually were playing in mind as the race drew near, most specially whenever we have our Thursday Night Swims at the Army Pool. After learning how to bike through Project Training Wheels, friends from takbo.ph called me Kenkoy Biker. After learning from teammates and friends on how to improve my swim (and eventually "wow"-ing them with my vast improvement), they eventually called me Kenkoy Swimmer.

as the race day grew closer, i was really bent on thinking (and eventually choosing)…

thoughts for tootee

a friend shared this quote to me this morning.

"Love your
 Whatever type of Bike you have,

(RJ's mountain bike)
(PapaPIO's mountain bike)
 it's important to remember that unlike a car, the bike itself will not make you go fast:


YOU ARE THE ENGINE...
(let's go tootee! hataw mode!)
With a basic racer that fits properly and has decent wheels and tires,
if you have the will, you can beat the world.

The rider counts for far more than the bike"

(the quote was from Cycle Racing by William Fotheringham)

from blue to green

nope im not switching sides ;)

last year, i was excited to join the inaugural QC International Marathon (half marathon distance for me) but as things turned out, I wasn't able to join as i got sick literally a couple of days before the main event :(.


this time, i would like to make sure that i will not have the same dilemma again.
I would like to try and join this race (to make up for the 21K i missed last year) and afterwards, will join the numerous takbo.ph peeps (from Team Boring, Endure, CB, Ungas, Powerpuff Boys) who will support the following on their first Full Marathon



 Support extra-ordinaire , Margababes/ Margalicious 

and 


team CB owner Chelly da Belly /Tonya 


let's gow sagow!

ayot? apir!

training starts now :)

i have two hands...

the left and the right elbows go high  so clean and bright stroke them swiftly (breath) one, two, three clean little hands are good to see

 paddle drills help me strengthen my stroke and make it polished to make it more efficient in time for NAGT :)
