Pinoy Fitness launched its new event, Pinoy Fitness Kasama Run with Michaela, at a blogger’s event last week. Jeff Lo, founder of Pinoy Fitness, presented a heart warming video of runners (many of whom were familiar faces from TBR Dream!) talking about who they run with and why from best friends to couples to barkadas. We all run for different reasons and with different people, but at the end of the day, we share the same passion for running. (more…)
Last Saturday, June 11, my children and I woke up bright and early to join the Alaska Milk Day run at McKinley West. Now on its 4th year, Alaska Milk Corporation holds this annual event to celebrate World Milk Day. With the children heading back to school this week, I thought a fun outdoor family activity was a fitting way to celebrate their last weekend of summer as well.
Nutrition. Action. Champion. Those are the three words that Alaska wishes to instill in both adults and children in its advocacy to live healthier lives. It’s one that I personally share in my own life and in the way I raise my children. I felt fortunate to be part of this event. (more…)
After a run, I always look forward to a long, soothing shower. I want to immediately rid myself of the sticky, sweaty feeling and to relax my usually sore legs and feet.
After Sunday’s long run, I tried using Origins Warm Down Warming Lava Scrub on my calves and feet. The Warm Down scrub is a water-activated warming lava exfoliator which helps relieve DOMs (Delayed Onset Muscle soreness) and relax stiff, aching muscles. They say that the warm treatment helps increase blood flow and relieves tension from sore muscles. The scrub also contains an essential oil blend of Wild Mint, Spearmint, and Vanilla which is invigorating to the skin and the volcanic ash possesses antibacterial qualities that gets rid of bacteria from sweat. It’s perfect for active individuals who want to feel renewed after a workout. (more…)

I was asked to publish this article to share with you the other side of the story behind Mary Joy Tabal’s qualifying for the Rio Olympics. (See press release here.)
I hear that it’s a controversial topic lately among runners, but, quite honestly, it’s the first time I’ve heard about this so I don’t feel I’m informed enough to express an opinion. However, I do believe it’s important to share this article to help shed light on the issue and allow the public to decide for themselves.
Below is the article written by PATAFA marketing head, Edward Kho:
The Curious Case of Mary Joy Tabal
What it truly means for her to represent the Philippines in the Rio Olympics
The running community recently celebrated the success of Mary Joy Tabal hitting the Olympic standard for marathon. Joy ran a 2:43:30-hour marathon time at the 2016 Scotiabank Ottawa Marathon, beating the 2:45-hour standard for her to join the Olympics. While the running community celebrates, there are mixed feelings inside the Philippine Athletics Track and Field Association (PATAFA). (more…)
