Happening this August 26, 2017 at Nuvali, Sta. Rosa, Laguna, the R.O.X. Bike for a Cause aims to engage the biking community in a meaningful and charitable biking event.

Presented in partnership with Bikes for the Philippines, a non-profit foundation which aims to provide bicycles to disadvantaged individuals in the Philippines, together with Heroes on Wheels, an assistance program of the Center for Outdoor Recreation Expedition created in the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan in 2013, the proceeds for this year’s Bike For A Cause will go to the Talahib Pandayan National High School in Batangas City and Heroes on Wheels program.

Together, Bikes for the Philippines and Heroes on Wheels aim to strengthen the support networks of poverty-stricken communities by providing proper outdoor equipment and transport that will bridge the gap between inaccessible areas.

41st Milo Marathon: Who’s Joining?

Saturday, 22 July 2017  |  Race Announcements

I’ve signed up for Milo Marathon 21k this coming July 30 in Manila.  Who else is in?!!

For some reason, I guess since this is one of the more popular races in the city that almost everyone gets excited about, I always thought I had joined quite a number of Milo races in my running career.  I browsed through my archives and realized that – gasp! – my last Milo Marathon 21k was way back in 2010.  That’s 7 years ago!  I was much younger then and hitting a 2:03 for 21k was effortless at that time (so different from how it feels nowadays lol).

I got really sentimental browsing through these photos. The running community was tight knit and quite a happy bunch.  This is a photo of Jun, Jay, and I, my closest running friends during that time and, of course, we’re still in touch

Hamming it up for Photovendo of Ben Chan!

For this coming July 30 at Milo, it will be my test race before my Ironman 70.3 relay with the Sun Life tri team the week after. I haven’t been racing much lately so, at this point, my body cooperates running at such an early time again.  Apologies for the Tita speak lol. (more…)
