I turned 40 this year and, while I feel like the years are slowly creeping up on me when I spot a strand of white hair, I don’t recover from a long run as quickly as before, or my kids make fun of me when I can’t figure out the settings of my iphone (grr!), I still do feel strong and fit enough to do the things I want. I guess that’s one of the benefits of living an active lifestyle.

So, when Fitness First invited me to try out BioScore, their new health and fitness assessment, which determines your biological or ‘fitness age’ compared to your real age, I jumped at the chance and squeezed it into my busy sched by dropping by the gym during my lunch break! Yes, it only takes an hour (if you go fast) to 1.5 hours. (more…)

Back in July 2013, as I was training for Ironman Cebu, I crashed my bike on Daang Hari Road. All I remember was wobbling on the bike. Next thing I knew I woke up after 2 minutes of lying unconscious on the open road and finally having my taste of what cyclists like to call “tocino” (or scraped reddish skin) on my shoulders, elbow, and calves. While I recovered fully from the crash and eventually completed the race, I still bear the scars on my arms and legs now. It’s the annoying “peklat” but seeing it each day also reminds me of how strong I was to continue the race despite the trauma. In the face of challenges, I just look at that scar and know I can survive anything. (more…)
