Being Champions in Life

You passed eight runners and no one passed you.

The finals was ran, the full marathon distance was won. Another milo marathon story unfolded. Two hundred thirty seven finalists braved themselves running the distance to carve their names unto the pages of the premiere running event in the country. This is the 33rd Milo Marathon Finals. This is one of the many stories.

you're on the gallery, witness some of the events here.

This notion of excellence was ultimately bound up with the notion of the fulfillment of purpose. You relied on the act of living up to one's full potential. You showed the courage and strength in the face of adversity. And it was what people aspired to. You showed superiority, you denoted nobility, you showed excellence.

That was arete; unleashing the champion within by being the best that you can be.


  1. Hi vener, congrats! we missed you you along lawton and bayani road.Swthrt and I were hoping to get a glimpse of you and take picture. You're really fast. Kaya nga you're an inspiration to many runners. Idol! Hope to see you soon! Goodluck to Xty on her marathon on Sunday.

  2. Congrats on another great run, Vener.

    And nice to finally meet you!

  3. Thanks Bro.J, pasensiya na if you didn't see me at the race route, it's because I downgraded my run and joined the 21km instead for the upcoming qcim. Milo can wait again next year. See you on sunday.

  4. Thanks Alfred, its good to meet you too. I bet it's better to run the finals than the elims, di ba? See you again.

  5. Hi vener, i just read the recap of jonel on the milo marathon. Dun ko lang din nalaman that you downgraded. The best ka talaga! More power to you!

  6. Thanks Bro.J. We will see you at the qcim. Regards to swthrt.
