REXONA RUN 2012 SEPT 23, 2012



i've been out of the road racing scene for the longest time since i started running in 2008, primarily because, the races has been held in almost the same venue for more than 2 years already. one of the venues that i haven't had a race held in would be the MOA area. so when i was given the opportunity to join this run, i decided that this could be my come back race.

the past few weeks had been hard on my training schedule, primarily because of the bad weather.

well well well, i guess the running gods heard me (na hindi pa ako 100% ready)

for those who haven't heard or seen the tweets since last night, please see press release below regarding Rexona Run 2012:


Rexona Run 2012 Postponed

In its commitment to give the best running experience to its runners, the Rexona Run
2012 slated this Sunday, August 12, 2012 at the Mall of Asia grounds has been postponed.

Due to the extreme weather that is hitting Metro Manila and other parts of the country,
Rexona, together with RunRio, has decided to move this much-anticipated event to a later
date to ensure that the logistics are fully in place to give participants a safe and enjoyable
run. This will give the race officials and participants who are affected by the heavy rains and
flooding time to recover and recharge before the run.

Now on its third year, the Rexona Run has become one of the most anticipated
running events. This year, participants will prove their mettle and get a chance to win cash
prizes, medals and bragging rights in the 21K Solo, 21K Relay and 5K races. Flat screen
TVs and mobile phones will also be given away to lucky participants.

The top 3 finishers in the 21K Solo take home P7,000, 5,500, and 4,000; while
P5,000, 4,000, and 3,000 will be awarded to each member of the top finishers in the 21K
Relay division. Finally, the top three finishers in the 5K category bring home P4,000 for first,
3,000 for second and 2,000 for third.

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.…
