ABOUT THE KENKOY RUNNER

i am not a clown.

i am not what you would typically consider a "funny man" to all types of people. 

why KENKOY?

in my earlier days of running, little did i know of the proper running form, etc, a runner-friend mentioned that i looked funny while running. my head was wobbling side to side like one of those bobble head animals you'd see in taxi cabs etc.

they found it as something "kenkoy," thus, the Kenkoy Runner was born.


i started seriously running start of 2009 to initially lose weight, but fell in love with running.

i enjoy running, not because of the competition, but more on the natural high i get out of running.

i am not a speedster, but can be if needed. (or if challenged).
i have tried long distance running and found it to be relaxing, most specially if it  takes one outside of the metro.

initially was focused on running, but was exposed to multi-sport through runner-friends.

learned how to ride a bike only in june 2010 initially as a cross-training while recuperating from an ITBS. got addicted to biking soon after.

still polishing my swim to be a more efficient swimmer.


i am a marathoner, and a newbie triathlete. 


feel free to read on my thoughts about running,biking, swimming, or about life in general. 


a serious person despite the kenkoy outlook in life.

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.…
