I got this from my email. I think this is a good road race to join, not that expensive, and a "different" route from the usual BHS or MOA races. 
Read up to learn more about this race  from the emailed info below :) 

ProNation is an annual fundraiser and fun run activity of the John Gokongwei School of Management (JGSOM) Management Engineering Program and the Ateneo Management Engineering Association (MEA). Your participation will help MEA, in coordination with JGSOM, raise funds for the Ateneo Scholarship Fund that will enable underprivileged but deserving students to have a quality education and continue the proud tradition of the Ateneo.

ProNation is composed of three distinct competitive races: a 10K Open race (Men and Women divisions) for serious distance runners, a 5K Team race, as well as a 3K race for recreational and first-time runners. All races are open to all competitive and casual runners and walkers. It is the honor of ProNation to be organized by Mr. Rudy Biscocho, organizer of big running events such as MILO Marathon, Mizuno Infinity Run, Condura, Clark Freeport International Marathon, DZMM’s Takbo Para sa Kalikasan, and The Philippine International Marathon.

It will be held on February 20, 2011, Sunday at the Ateneo de Manila University, Loyola Heights Campus. All races begin in front of the Blue Eagle Gym.

All winners of the 10K Open for Men, 10K Open for Women, and the 5K Team Run will receive cash awards and trophies, while winners of the 3K Fun Run will receive special awards.

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.

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.…
