Multisport 101: Swim Bike Run Series

Multisport; (wikipedia) is a family of athletic competitions in which athletes race in a continuous series of stages or legs, and rapidly switch from one athletic discipline to another in order to achieve the best overall time. Most multisport events are endurance races, consisting of aerobic activities such as cycling, running, kayaking and cross-country skiing.

The most common multisport event is the triathlon. An event involving the completion of three continuous and sequential endurance events.

Merrell Barefoot Collections: A New Approach To Minimalist Running

There’s a new sports craze that has running magazines, websites, and bloggers talking – barefoot or minimalist running.

Barefoot running is not as far-fetched as it sounds. This running technique is so effective that it has enthusiasts and serious athletes trying out “barefoot” or “barely there” running shoes.

This type of footwear allows people to get back outside and reconnect with nature every step of the way. Its lightweight yet protective design allows wearers to get a feel of their surroundings and develop better flexibility, balance, and awareness. No more waiting in line at the gym or fancy equipment for a day of fun and adventure outdoors.

Merrell’s Barefoot collection is comfortable enough to let you run and play outside with the kids, cruise the farmer’s market, or complete an urban road race. Merrell also partnered with Vibram to ensure that each Barefoot shoe model is durable and gives that unique feeling of being almost barefoot.

Unlike other minimalist footwear styles, the Merrell Barefoot collection is super lightweight, flexible, low profile, beneficial, and stylish. Its ergonomic designs also strengthens feet and legs, realigns posture, and stimulates the senses. All of these benefits in one pair of shoes.

Go on a Merrell Barefoot adventure now. Try the Merrell Barefoot collection at Merrell concept stores and outlets nationwide.

Click on the photos for a larger view.

The Barefoot Collection for men includes the Trail Glove, True Glove, and Tough Glove. All three styles are extremely lightweight and versatile and can take you from the trail to walking around town.

Ladies will take a liking for the Merrell Pace Glove, Power Glove, and Pure Glove. All shoe models follow the Merrell’s credo “Performance Made Beautiful,” because they fit well and look good at the same time.

This new footwear style helps create a more natural stride because it encourages a forward momentum and mid-foot landing. It also provides a lower impact and an aligned and effortless gait. The Merrell Barefoot Collection is designed to stimulate different muscles, strengthen the core, and improve agility.

Walking, running or going around barefoot is usually a unique and pleasurable experience for everyone. People love being barefoot because it creates a connection with nature and what they’re doing. But since most people aren’t willing to go to work, hike a trail, or ride a bike completely shoe-less (not to mention most restaurants and shops won’t let you completely barefoot), this new shoe styles are ideal for people who are looking for that connection.

Try the Merrell Barefoot Collection now at Merrell concept stores and all leading department stores. Go outdoors with the Merrell Barefoot!

Goldilocks Fun Run

Who would resist a sumptuous viand of puto paired with dunuguan on a merienda; pork barbecue and kare-kare with laing during lunch, and a serving of cathedral window for dessert. These are just a few of pinoy's favorites from goldilocks aside from their array of all-time favorite cakes. This year is goldilocks' celebration of it's 45 goldilicious years.

A brief history: Goldilocks traces its roots to the collaboration and complementary talents of the women, whose collective love for good food fueled what has been transformed into the global enterprise today. In 1966, two sisters Milagros and Clarita, and their sister-in-law, Doris, decided to open a small bakeshop along to the Pasong Tamo Street, Makati. The sisters have already been dabbling in the business for some time -- Milagros, by supplying chiffon slices to a number of Manila’s canteens, and Clarita, by baking and decorating cakes during special occasions in Bicol -- when they decided to take their hobby one step further. A third sister, Maria Flor, suggested that they name the enterprise “Goldilocks“, after the character in a fairy tale, aiming to make it easier for children and their mothers to remember its name; and because it suggested luck and prosperity. Over the years, Goldilocks did prosper, but not due to mere luck. The sisters’ dedication, hard work and business sensibilities led to a second branch just two years after the pioneering outlet began operating. Read here.

Now on its 45th year, Goldilocks is throwing out a race dubbed as the Goldilocks Fun Run. This is the first of RunRio's races for the Running for Love Series. The event will be held on May 15, 2011 at Bonifacio Global City.
