Congratulations to friends, Cebu-based triathletes Noy and Amale Jopson, for their awesome feature on Runner’s World Philippines’ January-March 2012 issue.
When the hubby and I ran The Great LapuLapu Run in Cebu last 2010, it was Noy and Amale who took care of us and even found a babysitter for our kids while we ran.
It was also Amale who encouraged me to run California International Marathon with her last December. I remember her telling me in Cebu a year before CIM: “Let’s go, Jaymie! No husbands, no kids! Just us!” Woah, I was thrilled with the idea and registered for CIM a couple of months after. Amale went on to finish CIM with a jaw-dropping time of 3:46 for her very first marathon. Amazing!

In the same issue, Runner’s World featured running bloggers in the article: Run, Blog, Inspire. Thanks to RW for including me in the lineup. Thanks to Monica Barretto too for the fun shoot.

RW featured other running bloggers: Dennis Ravanzo (Running Pinoy), Pat Concepcion (Running Shield), Noelle de Guzman (Kikay Runner), one of my dearest and most kulit friends Vima Mendoza (Kulit on the Run), one of the most humble running bloggers I know, Rene Villarta (Jazz Runner), Jinoe and Que Gavan (takbo.ph) and Cheryl Golangco (Little Running Teacher).
The feature that surprised me and I was most thrilled about was this:
– TBR Dream Marathon on RW’s Marathon Guide 2012 –
How cool is this? For my little baby, The Bull Runner Dream Marathon, to be featured alongside big names such as Milo Marathon, Condura Skyway Marathon, Camsur Marathon and more made me feel like a proud mama. (Tears of joy, baby!)
Thanks and Congrats to Runner’s World for this fantastic issue!
