Commonwealth Avenue has been famous (and also infamous) for numerous accidents that happen there due to the rampaging buses at the middle of the night, and also the numerous rallies that plagued this major thoroughfare whenever something controversial hearings happen at Batasan, or if there are strikes from bus & jeepney operators due to oil price increase, etc.

Last Sunday, December 5, 2010, another concept of freedom has been achieved.

There have been a lot of people from takbo.ph who've had experience the support and care from our beloved Margababes/Margalicious. Marga has always been one of the first (if not the first) person to volunteer whenever support crews are needed, or whether there are banner-making sessions needed for first-timers (be it for a 21K, 42K, ultra-marathons, triathlons, duathlons, etc). Marga has always been there.

Last December 5, 2010, Marga was able to break free from her 'demons'. She surpassed them all.  

Marga was able to break barriers, and stereotypes when she finished her first full marathon.  Here's her own account of her first full marathon.

guess who's the first timer here.

Marga has always been an inspiration to all of us.



QC incorporated last Sunday's race as part of the city's 71st foundation/ anniversary, but at the end of the day, takbo.ph peeps celebrated and welcomed one of our own into the rosters of MARATHONERS.



MARGA UY BAULA, you are now a MARATHONER!


 
si piolo, nag hire pa ng bodyguards pag tumatakbo, sayo, sila pang nakikipag unahan para mag hagad sayo



oh ha, may sarilin aylab banner!


 kung wala ka mang inabutang FINISH LINE, yung iba naman walang ganito

you are one heck of a big person inside and out, and you proved to us all how sheerwill, determination, love and support reciprocates a thousand fold :) no medal or banner can ever trump that feeling of being able to help the person who's selflessly gives herself whenever the opportunity rises :)

thanks marga, for letting us be your support this time around.

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.…
