Belated Happy Easter! How did you celebrate easter? I started easter morning, as I’ve done every year, with a long run with friends. I covered 21k, my 2nd to the last long run before Boston Marathon, and I must admit that I’m soooo looking forward to tapering next week. I usually love long runs preparing for a marathon, but the heat and humidity the past week has just been excruciating! If you’re dreading the summer heat like me, here are 10 cool tips for running outdoors… (more…)
It’s been over 2 months since I started circuit training with my Personal Trainer at Fitness First.

I’ve heard about one of the best races in marathon history. It was in 1982 at Boston Marathon between Alberto Salazar and Dick Beardsley. It was so huge that a book, “Duel in the Sun”, was written about it. Well, instead of reading the book, we’re quite fortunate to hear the story from one of the men directly. Dick Beardsley is in town now for a series of running and motivational talks thanks to one of his good friends, Jim Lafferty.
Dick was kind enough to share his precious time with us this coming Sunday, February 8, 2015, at 6:00 AM in Filinvest Corporate City. This will be an informal event, just a short talk and a run around the carless loop. There will be no hydration booths or baggage check ins. It will be free and open to everyone. Do come and join us.
It’s one thing to feel sad about the 44 PNP-SAF at the Mamasapano massacre and it’s something else if you do something about it. Here’s a note from triathlon coach Andy Leuterio about “Love our Warriors,” a fundraiser he’s organizing. Please contact Coach Andy directly at firstname.lastname@example.org for any inquiries. Hope you can make it. (more…)
