It was a full house at ROX last October 13, 2010 as over 200 runners showed up for the much anticipated BULL CIRCLE 1: THE MARATHON DREAM, the first of a series of talks in preparation for The Bull Runner Dream Marathon.
Speakers Neville Manaois, Coach Ige Lopez, and TBR Dream Marathon alumni Jun Bisnar, Mai Mai Lim, and Gene Tiongco engaged the audience with their heart warming and engaging stories of their own marathon experiences. Jun Bisnar also presented Hero Foundation, a non-profit organization which provides scholarships to orphans of soldiers, as the beneficiary of TBR Dream Marathon 2011. The talk ended with a Q&A where runners got to ask the panel anything and everything on their minds.
More than the talks, it was a chance for the new batch of TBR Dream Marathoners to gather together. We reminded them to look around and get to know each other as they would meet more often in the next 6 months. It was also my chance to meet the new dreamers!
– with TBR Dream Marathoners Mia, Jordana, and Mimi who have been genius enough to journal every step they take in their marathon journey. They started way back during registration. See Jordana’s photo below –
The next Bull Circles will get more technical as we discuss gear, nutrition, hydration, strength and conditioning, and many more.
