where it all started.

coming home from a chill 2K run early tonight, Endure teammate and fellow takbo.ph pioneer Carina bbm-ed a message about Rico's blog for Condura 2011.

I went to my pc and opened his blog and read his article. It was plain and simple, straight to the point.

It briefly narrated how a brainchild of Jinoe Gavan was able to gather a group of enthusiastic runners, both newbies and  veterans alike, to celebrate the joys of running.

from that simple idea, the thought of gathering people together to get to know each other, to be able to put names with their takbo.ph handles, was what started the "evolution" of running groups in the Metro. It revived the camaraderie of runners from all walks of life.

Reading Rico's blog reminded me what made me want to join other races.

It was because of the people I was with that time when I had my

first LSD,

 
my first CLP,


and my First Condura.







ayot? apir!
sa uulitin!


See you at the Skyway! :)

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.…
