Women's Health- Athena Fun Run

saan ka namang nakakita ng karerang may ganito: 

 

ang kikay diba?

one night while i was in the MRT on my way home, i got a text from Summit Media inviting me to the Bloggers' Night for the Women's Health Athena All Women's Run scheduled on March 19, Saturday. weird noh? i was invited for a bloggers night, tapos pang ALL WOMEN pa yun run? so i texted back and said, diba pang girls yun? pwede ba ang boys dun? sabi nila pwede naman, so sige i confeermed my attendance. sakto lang din that was the day after BDM 160, so i can chitchat with other blogger-friends who might be there also.

since this is an ALL WOMEN'S RUN, shempre the free race kit is not for me, but for my girlfriend.

so there. to cut the long story short here are the details for the run.

the race is on the 19th of March, Saturday sa MOA. (okay dyan, flat course, so if habol mo eh maka PR, sakto ka dito) mapa anong distance ka man sumali, more or less eh flat yan. (kaya nga maraming nag bibike dito sa MOA twing umaga eh).



nung una kong malaman na may ganito (at malamang eh libre para kay gf ang race kit), naisip kong isali sha dito sa 3K lang, since medyo matagal na rin sha di tumatakbo eh. tingnan nyo naman ang ruta, simple lang naman diba, isang ikot lang. malamang maraming marshals dyan, so safe sha (at ang mga kasama nyang malamang sa newbies din).

pag dating ko sa Stock Market (ung venue ng Bloggers thingy), ang tumambad sa screen ay etong imahe na ito.



sa loob loob ko, aba, ang kikay naman ng Women's Health- Athena Run, hindi  medal ang pinamimigay, kundi FINISHER'S bracelet!  sabagay, kung ako naman eh sasali sa isang all-women's race eh malamang sa akma din sana ung pamimigay diba, so ok sa mga girls yan diba.

sabay naitanong ko sa mga kasamahang matagal nang nandun sa venue, ano yung sinasabi daw tungkol sa bracelet.  ang nabanggit naman sakin eh, para lang daw yan sa mga makakatapos ng distances na ito:





o kaya



hala! o diba, dapat mas mahaba sa 3k ang tatakbuhin para sa karerang ito.

so ayun, tapos na ung presentation, time to eat na ulit. (sobrang daming food! salamat Summit Media & Athena!)

so habang pinapass around yung mahiwagang IPAD registration ng mga Runrio team eh napaisip ako kung saan ko isasaling distance ang GF ko para dito.

buti na lang, si Rod Runner eh sinali nya si Mrs. Rod  Runner sa 5K, ayun, solb na ang problema ko. may kasama na si GF tumakbo, habang kami ni Rosgar eh mag iintay na lang muna. (tamang tama, may wedding kaming pupuntahan ni GF sa hapon naman). ayus diba? :)

kaya sa lahat ng babae diyan, sali na dito!

eto pala kasama ng race kits upon registering:





at eto pa pala!sabi sa CD na binigay ng Women's Health, para makakuha ng Finisher's Bracelet ang mga nag 5K at 10K ay dapat suot nila ang official singlet ng karera! take note, ang singlet ng girls eh literal racer back (tama ba ang spelling ko?) kaya ayun. ganon lang naman

eto ang sinabi oh

The race bag includes goodies from Women’s Health and Athena Milk for Women, and a specially-designed Women’s Health-Athena Milk For Women racer-back singlet that participants must be wearing as they cross the finish line in order to win and qualify for the finisher’s bracelets.

Registration for the Women’s Health and Athena Milk for Women All Women’s Run is ongoing until March 19, 2011. (mukhang pwedeng mag ONSITE registration kasi March 19 ung karera eh :) )

The registration fees for the respective categories are: P500 for 3K, P600 for 5K, and P700 for 10K.
-eto pa, since Runrio ang may hawak nito, kung gusto nyo ng murang race under ni Coach Rio, eto oh. sakto lang :) D-tag pa!

oh ayan ha, sa mga nag rereklamo sa mahal na races, eto isang ito hindi mahal, kaya lang pambabae lang in celebration of Women's Month (March).

kaya join na! :) (mga babae lang ha!)  (boys tambay na lang tayo, may tents naman ata dun) hehehe

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.…
