UPDATED: takbo alimango takbo!

with all of the running boom lately, it's rare to see a road race labeled "correctly". a lot of fellow runner-bloggers have been berating hosts/radio and tv personalities mentioning races as a marathon, but in actuality, it's just a FUN RUN. what's the difference? basically it's just about the distance of the race. haha big deal no? being a marathoner is really a big deal, but for me, it's not a something that one should make a big fuzz out of.

anyway, i got a facebook invite to a crabby run, haha, crabby primarily because it is the Red Crab Alimango House Fun Run :) yup, fun run. and to make things more clear, it is a 5 kilometer fun run to be held at McKinley. For those veteran runners, we all know that McKinley is one hilly route. it's fun to do hill repeats here ;) sooo this fun run, it's really gonna be a FUN one :) hehehe.

Registration fee : P650 (race bib, singlet, finisher’s medal and our sumptuous breakfast!!!) 
Race Route: Piazza Venice McKinley Hill, Taguig on November 25,2012. 
Reg Period: October 1 to November 15, 2012 at any of our Red Crab branches. 

(i guess this is a sign to start eating hills for breakfast, or dinner?) 

will there be Mr. Krabs at the finish line? :) or will the medals be crab shells? (or aprons be awarded for that sumptuous breakfast? am excited!)

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.…
