I finished Chicago Marathon yesterday morning! It was my 11th marathon and my 5th World Marathon Major! 8 years ago, when I could barely finish 5k, who would’ve thought I would finish more marathons than the number of fingers on both hands?!! (more…)
Where did the time go? Wasn’t it only yesterday when I had weeks to go before Chicago Marathon? Now, I sit here at the Hong Kong airport typing away waiting for my flight to the Windy City. Chicago Marathon is on October 12, Sunday, just 3 days away. (more…)
I woke up at 3:00 AM with a splitting headache. Woah boy, not a great way to start the day especially when you’ve got a race to join. I popped a pill to address the headache and proceeded to prepare for my 10k run at Run United Philippine Marathon.
There was no way I was going to miss this race. It was my last Sunday run before Chicago Marathon. It was my way of supporting my partner, Unilab Active Health. And, last but not the least, who doesn’t join one of the biggest races of the country? (more…)
A gym membership is essential for a runner like me. 2 out of my 5 weekly runs are done on a gym treadmill. Treadmill runs are efficient, simple, and, they’re a lot more comfortable than suffering under the tormenting heat of the sun when my busy sched won’t allow for early morning runs.

No excuses. Just keep moving forward.
