shaved or not?

there are rumors that real men shave their legs.

in high school, i had a classmate who was part of the track team and he said they were somewhat required to shave their legs in order to be faster. this i am not sure how the leg hairs affect their speed.

in biking, the same thing has been rumored to be true. i have read from a veteran biker's recount on this concept.

it has been a long time since my leg was "shaved," and the time i  had my legs shaved was not because i "wanted" to go faster. it was because they needed to.

this was taken a long long time ago, 2004 to be exact.

well actually, my leg was not shaved literal, it was my knee area. given that i'm into this biking thing, and is still new with the cleats, i still have tendencies to fall/ semplang, and one of the most-hit area are my knees, or legs. 
now it seems more logical too, to shave my legs for a faster, easier tocino cleaning :)
check out their legs,smoothly shaved!

hmmmm, now i'm thinking, shave or not?

does this also cause drag in my swim? hahahahaha

ayot? apir!


  1. Track and field players shave? Now that is a first.

    I know swimmers shave, and this is to reduce drag/ resistance to the water.


  2. when i was in hi school . i use to shave my legs. thinking i could cut my time. i think it worked :-) - patrick concepcion / runningshield

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.…
