It was a busy, busy time for TBR Dreamers!  Just a few days after our 3rd Bull Session, runners met up once again, but this time for our free running talk: Bull Circle 4 entitled The Doctors Are In: Biomechanics and Hydration for Marathoners held at Ortigas Home Depot just across our sponsor, Secondwind Running Store.

– Full house! –

Our speakers were orthopedic surgeons Dr. George Canlas, officer of the International Olympic Committee Oceanian Medical Mission and Gatorade Sports Science Institute advisor, and Dr. Randy Molo, member of the Philippine Center for Sports working with RP athletes and the Azkals.

Before the talk, Thorlos had a brief presentation about the importance of using the right socks for runners.  Runners were also treated to an inspiring talk from TBR Dream Marathon alumni, Jenny Agahan, who shared her experience running TBR Dream Marathon and gave practical tips on how to run the marathon strong.

Coach Lit Onrubia led our 3rd Bull Session, free run clinics based on TBR Dream Marathon training program, at Track 30th in Bonifacio Global City last December 1.  Runners ran for two hours around Bonifacio Global City with various groups depending on their run-walk intervals and paces.

According to Coach Lit, “This Bull Session was a crucial step in the TBR Dream Marathon training process as the body typically reaches a new level of endurance once one breaches the 2-hour mark.”
