Whats the Difference between a 5k Finisher and an Ironman Triathlete?

My answer: Everything…and Nothing. (more…)

JOMO: The Joy of Missing Out

Are you constantly checking IG on Sunday to check out all the post race photos of a race you didn’t attend?

Do you peek at your FB wall all day at work to see who ran X number of kilometres and with whom and where?  Then you half wish you could change into run gear already?

Are you finding it hard to check your Twitter account even while you’re running at 5:30 km pace?

If you said yes, then you may have FOMO.  (Relax, you’re not going to die.) (more…)

Boo to Bed Rest

64BEDREST

Last Sunday, my alarm clock rang at 2:30AM waking me for the early call time of World Vision Run. I registered for the 21k.

As I rolled out of bed, I knew something was wrong. The room was spinning around me. I slowly made my way towards the bathroom swaying from side to side like a drunken person (which is just the same as me having only 3 sips of wine!) After I splashed water on my face, the dizzy spells disappeared and, being the naive and somewhat cuckoo runner that I am, I proceeded to prepare for the race by preparing a light pre-race breakfast of coffee, apples, and peanut butter.

Change is Good!

Friday, 13 June 2014  |  Bullish Insights

For 2014, I told myself I wouldn’t resist change, but I would embrace it.  Well, it looks like I went a bit overboard!

Tonight I am launching the new The Bull Runner logo and TheBullRunner.com layout.

SCREENSHOT

This is the first redesign of the TBR logo ever since I designed the original identity on a whim, in 15 minutes, when I created this blog.  I thought it was about time that I made it look more contemporary, strong and simple, yet striking.

As for the layout,  I believe this redesign comes after over 3 years using the old layout which I felt was cluttered and confusing (much like my life then! LOL)  Every year, I would dream of creating a new fresh look, but life always got in the way. This time, I committed to working on the design bit by bit whenever I had spare time from work or training (i.e., on long flights, while waiting at doctor’s clinics, sitting in the car in traffic).  With the help of my fantastic web designers (and TBR Dream Alum, mind you) Marc and Gail Villanueva of Intuitiv Solutions and Cres Yulo who shot my photo in all of 15 minutes right in her condo, I was finally able to launch this little part of me on the world wide web.  Thank you Marc, Gail, and Cres!

For this year, I have bigger and more exciting plans!  Hope you can join the journey with me!

What do you think about the new layout?  Any new topics, articles, or features you’d like to see on running?  Just let me know!

See you at Km 0 for 2014 Run United 2!

Are you joining 2014 Run United 2 tomorrow? I’ve signed up for 21k.

Tonight, I’ll be on my knees praying that the weather cooperates tomorrow. I’m hoping all 10,000 plus runners do the same so we have greater chances haha!

I’m looking forward to the new race start at Km 0 in Luneta Park. Traffic may be a bit more difficult, but I think it’s great that we experience new race starts with the opportunity to improve our races every year.

While I may not get that great looking medal for 32k finishers, I’m pretty excited about the 21k Finishers’ Shirt. Love the design!

See you at Run United 2 tomorrow, runners!
