For years now, I’ve been dreaming of having an online shop for our TBR Dream merchandise. Thanks to my great husband-wife web team (who are also TBR Dream alumni), we finally launched our online shop today at our race website! Visit TBR shop by clicking: www.shop.tbrdream.com
We launched the site just in time for the online sale of our 2018 Limited Edition Forty Freakin’ Two shirts. These shirts are our annual tradition for TBR Dream Marathon, but each year, we try to improve on the quality and design of the shirt. I must say this edition is my fave! Forty Freakin’ Two shirts were designed by TBR Alumni Ricky So and printed by Team Manila. Grab your shirt now before they sell out!

Anyone and everyone who is into triathlon knows SWIMBIKERUN.ph or SBR.ph. I’m lucky to have met its founder, Carlos de Guzman, years ago when he paced his girlfriend (now wife) Aleta at our inaugural TBR Dream Marathon way back in 2010.

SBR.ph is the main resource for triathlon information and races in the country. It is also an online store that caters to the gear needs of tri-athletes and/or those that are simply into running, swimming and cycling. SBR.ph also has shirts, socks, caps, drinking bottles, monitor watches, goggles, support straps and such made available on the site. Carlos also supports some cyclist needs such as wheels. (more…)
