After the Storm…

IMG_5777– After my rainy run last Friday –

One of my favorite quotes from my high school days is this: “After the storm, comes a rainbow.” I jotted this down in my journal and would derive strength from it when faced with my seemingly catastrophic teenage problems.

Now, as an adult, and after having survived much bigger typhoons (or more like super typhoons) in life, I know this to be true: The rainbow doesn’t always appear. The rain does stop eventually, but don’t be fooled by the promise of a rainbow. Either it never really shows up or one just gets too busy with the realities of life to even spot it. (more…)

TBR08

I’ve been running for 9 years now. When I see twenty-somethings all giddy over their first 5k, I feel all sentimental about how I started running. But, at the same time, I can’t help but feel…shall I say it…old. Gaah. (more…)

As many of you may have heard over social media, our dearest friend, Leo “Toel” Tugade, was found brutally murdered near BF Alamanza.  The news has shocked and shaken many of us in the running community not only because of his violent death, but, because, if you were fortunate enough to have known Toel, he was just one of those cheerful, humble, generous, and all-around good guys who just didn’t deserve this.

Training

Last month, I received the biggest news of my running career: Gatorade had locked in a slot for me to run the prestigious Boston Marathon!

If you know me, you know that since I first run the New York City Marathon in 2010, my greatest dream has been to run the World Marathon Majors. In the succeeding years after New York, I ticked off those marathons from my list: I was fortunate enough to run New York City Marathon again in 2011 thanks to Gatorade, Berlin Marathon in 2012 courtesy of Unilab Active Health, London Marathon in 2013 because of Timex and Unilab Active Health, Tokyo Marathon and Chicago Marathon in 2014 with the full support of Unilab Active Health.
