Style Weekend’s Women Who Wow

Tuesday, 25 March 2014  |  Press

In celebration of Women’s Month, Manila Bulletin’s Style Weekend featured 7 Women Who Wow on its anniversary issue last March 14, 2014.  The Women Who Wow were Sarah Geronimo, Marina Benipayo, Bianca Gonzalez, Amina Aranaz, Kate Torralba, Gaita Fores, and yours truly!  It was definitely an honor to be recognized along with these accomplished women.

Last March 19, I slipped out of my running shoes and stepped into heels (Yeoouch! This is tough when you’ve got sore feet) for the Women Who Wow party at 71 Gramercy.  It was great to meet and chat with all the other Women Who Wow.

– Invite to Style Weekend’s Women Who Wow –

– with Marina Benipayo, Liza Ilarde, Gaita Fores, and Bianca Gonzales –

The best part of the evening was when Liza Ilarde, editor of Style Weekend, presented each one of us with checks to be donated to our chosen beneficiaries!  How cool is that?  I chose Hero Foundation, our beneficiary for all our TBR events, as our beneficiary.

Thank you to Liza Ilarde, Style Weekend, and Manila Bulletin for the recognition and the support for Hero!

You know how it feels when someone you admire acknowledges you and your work, like a well-esteemed professor giving you an A+ or your boss tapping your back for a job well done? That’s how I felt when Marie Calica, Editor-in-Chief of Runner’s World Philippines, invited me to be on the cover of Runner’s World Philippines’ Oct-Dec 2012 issue.

Whenever I recount my story of how I started running in 2006, it always starts with an 8-week beginners’ program that I downloaded from Runner’s World.  From then on, Runner’s World became my source for all things running.  At that time, I didn’t have anyone to ask nor were there many local running blogs or websites to read, but there was RW!  It was my running bible…and it still is.

Aw, Runner’s World, it’s an honor to be featured on your pages.  Thanks for allowing me to share my story and, um, how I’m “Stub-born to Run.”  Now you know that you’re partially to blame for creating this bullish runner.



Runner’s World is out.  Get your copies in bookstores and running stores now!

Runner’s World Phils – April-June 2012

Saturday, 28 April 2012  |  Bullish Insights, Press

I got myself a copy of Runner’s World – April-June 2012 with teammate Ani de Leon-Brown on the cover.


There’s an article entitled “Best of Running”…


Aaaaw, TBR made it to the list of Most Popular Local Running Blogs.  Thanks RW Philippines and those who mentioned TBR, especially those who unfailingly continue to read about all the crazy stuff I get myself into. Congrats to Bald Runner and Jinoe and Que of Takbo.ph too.


Oh, and if you do get your hands on a copy, don’t forget to read this hilarious article of Lit Onrubia, another crazy runner who ran Condura Marathon even if he was sick. Hats off to RW illustrator who gave us all a good laugh with this red-nosed caricature of our friend talking into his phone haha!…
