Filinvest City Endurance Weekend 2014


The city trail of Filinvest, Alabang will be busy again for the hosting of the 2014 Filinvest City Endurance Weekend. I was a participant of the last year's event in the Endurance Run category. Since I was training for a mountain/trail run to be held two months ahead of it, I made this event as a measure to test my endurance, particularly in rainy situation, and it worked. I was able to cover 71.3km, or about 25 loops during the event finishing (maybe) in the top ten.

The trail route is good considering it's location which is at the heart of the city. For those who want to convert from road running to trail running, this is a good headstart. And for those who want to venture into long distance running, carry-on, push yourself to the limits at the Filinvest City Endurance Weekend. 

You can view my album from last year's episode here.

Alaska IronKids Uphold The Meaning Of A True Champion


Cebu, Philippines- August 1 was a memorable day for our Alaska IronKids as they participate in the Alaska IronKids support Gatas for Breakfast, a practice run for a good cause. It was an enriching experience for the IronKids participants as they not only practiced running with the Ironman Pros like Pete Jacobs, Caroline Steffen, Belinda Granger, and Alaska Tri-Aspire Team Coach Mat O’Halloran, Banjo Norte and Jenny Guerrero, they also shared a nutritious breakfast with milk to over 1,500 young students of Mactan Elementary School. This effort to foster a healthy consciousness among individuals and families - through the combination of exercise and proper nutrition - is Alaska’s way in helping fight against the increasing number of overweight and undernourished children in the country. Having a healthy and active lifestyle does not only involve physical activity but also proper nutrition, living up to Alaska’s key message, Nutrition.Action.Champion.
