So it’s February already. I honestly have no idea where January went. I do remember making a mental note to post about my 2015 goals as I always do, but life got in the way and I’ve been going nuts trying to juggle race organizing, blogging, editorial work, graphic design work, running, working out at the gym, swimming and biking, and, last but not the least, caring for the kiddos, that I never got around to it.  Hopefully I jot down my goals before June arrives!  (more…)

Run with Dick Beardsley on 8 Feb 2015

Thursday, 5 February 2015  |  Running + Triathlon

DICK-BEARDSLEY

I’ve heard about one of the best races in marathon history. It was in 1982 at Boston Marathon between Alberto Salazar and Dick Beardsley. It was so huge that a book, “Duel in the Sun”, was written about it.  Well, instead of reading the book, we’re quite fortunate to hear the story from one of the men directly.  Dick Beardsley is in town now for a series of running and motivational talks thanks to one of his good friends, Jim Lafferty.

Dick was kind enough to share his precious time with us this coming Sunday, February 8, 2015, at 6:00 AM in Filinvest Corporate City.  This will be an informal event, just a short talk and a run around the carless loop.  There will be no hydration booths or baggage check ins.  It will be free and open to everyone.  Do come and join us.

Race Report: Condura Skyway Marathon 2015

Over 15,000 runners trooped to the South for Condura Skyway Marathon at Filinvest City last February 1, 2015. A whopping 5,629 participants registered for the 42km making this the biggest local marathon to date.  4,989 registered for 21k, 2,953 signed up for 10k, and 1,808 joined the 6k. With Hero Foundation as its race beneficiary, Condura Skyway Marathon aptly used the tagline: Run for a Hero. With the recent tragic loss of the 44 PNP-SAF in the Mamasapano massacre, it became, for many runners, a meaningful way to honor our fallen heroes. Some marathoners ran an additional 2k to cover 44km, other runners ran 44 minutes, and some simply offered the run for them.  The race was organized by Condura’s Ton and Patrick Concepcion at the helm and Runrio.
