Today is the First Day of the Rest of Your Life

Monday, 17 October 2011  |  Bullish Insights

October 17 is DAY ONE of the 22-week TBR Dream Marathon Training Program.  For all 600 of our TBR Dream Marathoners, this could very well be the first day of the rest of your life.  You turn a new leaf.  You embrace new challenges that will make you a better, stronger you.  And, last but not the least, you take that first step towards achieving your marathon dream!  (Yeah!  Wasn’t that an Oprah moment?)

– You should have reviewed this TBR Dream Training Program included in your registration kit. Better yet, you should have made copies and posted them all over the house and at your office! –

Remember: we won’t run all your training runs together.  That is YOUR homework.  We expect full commitment and dedication from you.  We will, however, be together twice a month for our Bull Sessions and Bull Circles.


Our first Bull Session is this coming Saturday, 22 October 2011, in front of Krispy Kreme in Bonifacio High Street.  Our head coach for all our Bull Sessions will be Coach Lit Onrubia, certified Chi Running Instructor, together with Edward Kho who will assist us.  This will follow our training program which requires a long walk of 45 minutes.

Date: Saturday, October 22, 2011
Assembly time: 5:30 AM
Start at 6:00 AM
Venue: in front of Krispy Kreme, Bonifacio High Street
Programme: Short talk on Chi Walking followed by long walk of 45 mins. Those who want to run may do so.
Why should you attend?

  • If you are a new runner, start with walking to gradually introduce your body to running
  • If you are a runner who plans to use the RUN-WALK sequence in long runs/marathons which we recommend and we’ll apply in all our long runs, this talk will teach you how to walk efficiently with less fatigue
  • If you signed up for TBR Dream 2012, just show up to meet your batchmates!  It’s going to be fun!


We just finalized all 600 runners last week.  This week, we shall be sending out emails inviting you to join the TBR Dream E-group.  Please accept the invite to stay updated on our upcoming events.  This will be the primary way we’ll be getting in touch with you.

We will be sending via this email group the benefits of the TBR Dream Card which you received during registration.


Within the next couple of weeks, you’ll be receiving invites to join the TBR DM FB group.  Please accept this as well.  This is an exclusive group for TBR Dream Alumni and current runners.

That’s it for now!  Remember: do your homework runs and we’ll see you on Saturday!  I shall leave you with more Oprah-ish quotes to start your training week right: Live your best life NOW!
