Check out Preview’s June 2009 issue. In its Body Works section, they featured Leica Carpo and I in an article on women runners.
The shoot was held over a month ago at the Polo field. I finally got to meet Leica Carpo and chatted with her about—what else—running just before she left for Boston.
It was a great experience. An eye-opener when it came to fusing fashion with running, a possibility that only crossed my mind when I saw all the cool apparel, shoes, and accessories brought to the shoot by the editorial assistants. It also further proved the point for me that running is indeed a booming sport, not just for Filipinos in general, but particularly among women. There are more women runners now than ever before and I only hope to see more of us running—and leaving, ehem, the men behind. (Sorry guys!)
P.S. Please don’t comment about the hair! My son said it looks like a “tarantula!”
