TBR in Sunday Inquirer Magazine

Sunday, 22 February 2009  |  Press

Guess who’s on today’s issue of Sunday Inquirer Magazine?

The article below is about how I successfully recruited hubby into the world of addictive running. Er, I mean, how running has become a part of our lives. Thanks to Joy Rojas (yes, of Takbong Pangarap fame) for the wonderful article…

Congrats to good friend Ben Chan (Photovendo) whose photos practically filled the entire magazine!

Fit & Fun Buddy Run on Inquirer Last Week

Wednesday, 12 November 2008  |  Press

Okay, this is doubly late news. I’m talking about The Robinson’s Fit & Fun Buddy Run that was featured in Maurice Arcache’s Without Batting an Eyelash column last Wednesday, November 5. It’s doubly late because we all know that the Buddy Run was held last July 27.


Here’s the funny thing: the hubby and I were featured!  Judging from our appearance below, this was definitely way too long ago—to be exact, a full 6 lbs. ago for me (as I had just returned from injury) and 7 lbs. for the hubby. We were not “fit”, but we were definitely having “fun.”


On Philippine Inquirer

While you were recovering from your Nike+ Human Race race a couple of days ago, you may have been sipping your morning coffee while browsing through the Sunday papers. If you had Phil. Daily Inquirer, you may have read Ms. Tessa Prieto-Valdez’s column which featured the race and the Nike Lunar Testing…



Zoom in on the photo above and you may just find a few familiar faces in there…


To Tessa Valdez, thank you for the feature! Best of luck in NY Marathon. And, if or when I see you in another race, I hope I’ll finally have the guts to say HI!

TBR in Phil. Star

Sunday, 17 August 2008  |  Press

Have you read the papers today?

Skip the headlines (nothing important for us runners there) and head straight for the Sunday Lifestyle portion of Philippine Star. Fellow Happy Feet member and Star columnist, Tanya Lara, features recently held races Milo Marathon, Feati, and Mommy Milkshake.  (Thanks Tanya!)


Jump over to Page H-3 and you’ll find my big sis and I there…(That sister of mine is my next target running recruit. Ssssh! As for the hubby, mission accomplished!)


This is the one I am most proud of: TBR on yet another special mention in the papers. (Click here for TBR’s “press debut”.) I just love it when TBR gets more attention than little ol’ Jaymie does.


Running PR

Monday, 28 April 2008  |  Press

Did you read the papers yesterday? Running was featured in two major dailies—Philippine Star and Inquirer. Running PR isn’t just about Personal Records anymore, but also Press Release!

This is good news to all of us Pinoy Runners (hey that’s another PR?!) who can only benefit from the growing popularity of running in the country.

Here’s the article on Star featuring Global City Run…


Then another article on running by Tanya Lara…


and another on Inquirer featuring Condura Race…


In the column of Tanya Lara, she features a friend, Mon Domingo, one of the forces behind Happy Feet running group of which I am a part of, together with Eduardo Padilla, the barefoot runner. I’ve known “Master Mon” for almost a year now but only learned through this article that he’s ran 19 marathons with a 3:50 PR in 2004. Congratulations Master Mon! Pa-autograph naman ng singlet sa next race!
