Pilipinas Trail Running Camp

Sunday, 12 February 2017  |  Running + Triathlon

For the longest time now, I’ve been wanting to get into trail running.  I’ve joined trail runs in the past and I have always loved it.  For someone busy like me and with kids to spend time with on weekends though, I can’t seem to bring myself to take off for half a day to run outside of the city.  I guess I’ll have to wait until the little ones are a bit older.  If you’re one of the lucky ones who can escape to the mountains to run in the great outdoors, here’s a trail running camp you can join:

Trail-camp

Pilipinas Trail Running Camp provides an experience that helps ignite one’s passion for trail running or running off-road. It’s a series of trail-running learning weekends that aims to introduce new and aspiring runners to the sport and also for the seasoned veterans to get equipped in their approach to training and preparing for races, local and international. Runners will learn from and run with the trail champions and veterans together with sports experts and specialists. It’s a five-month program which includes two stay-in weekends of training and a culminating intimate race. It’s the perfect time to take advantage learning from the best and the brightest in the community – trail running techniques, uphill/downhill running, nutrition, training plans, heat/hydration management, yoga, etc. (more…)

I wake up each morning (except Monday rest days!) to workout after dropping the kids at school and before heading to work. I try to eat clean, drink lots of water, and keep stress at a minimum. I pretty much think that I live a healthy and clean life.

But then I read about the health risks that our gadgets and electronics can bring us and I suddenly question how safe I am. According to experts, our mobile phones, televisions, ipads, laptops and other electronics deregulate the bioelectric flow in our bodies and can leave us feeling dull and tired.

What can we do to protect us? That’s where Artificer, a line of innovative accessories with patented AERO technology, comes in. They say it aids in rebalancing and regulating the body back to its most effective and natural state. (more…)

Gerald Anderson to Go Like Never Before

GERALD2

As we all waited for celebrity Gerald Anderson to appear onstage during the presscon of the new Skechers Performance campaign Go Like Never Before, they played videos of the previous year’s Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon on the screen and I sat there like a little girl envious of everyone standing on that starting line.  Then, they played videos of my all time fave runner, Kara Goucher, along with other Skechers ambassadors like Meb Keflezighi, and I was in awe.  Maaan, Skechers, you sure know how to get a runner excited lol.
