To celebrate International Women’s Month this March, Under Armour invited women for a day of workouts and massage at EDSA Shangri-La’s Chi Spa last March 21. (more…)
Marathons are such a big part of me that I can’t imagine going through life without running one or two in a new city every year. It’s what keeps me motivated to train even through the hot or tough days; it’s what gets me excited for the months ahead; and, last but not the least, it’s what makes me absolutely happy… next to my kids, of course.
For this year, I’ve finally set my race calendar. Just thinking about it (especially Florence…aaah!) makes me giddy like a school girl. Here’s my race calendar for 2017 (excluding local races I’ll run for training):
May 1: Vancouver Marathon (Photo courtesy of www.runvan.org)
June 12: VIP Swim Challenge 2.5k (Photo courtesy of Betsy Medalla, Swim Junkie)
November 27: Florence Marathon
How about you? Where will you be running this year?
More and more women are getting into running. It’s not just evident here in the Philippines but it’s noted worldwide. Even better? Sports companies have noticed. Not only are we getting more support and more hype but we’re getting actual products designed especially for us! (more…)
Last February 21, 2016, 619 runners became marathoners at TBR Smart Dream Marathon 2016! After 22 weeks of training since August, attending our monthly Bull Sessions and Bull Circles together, and bonding as batch mates, our runners experienced the culmination of all their hard work when they crossed the finish line of their first 42k at Nuvali. After 7 years of organizing this event, I will never tire of taking runners on this marathon journey and seeing the look of triumph and joy when they conquer their dream.
Here are just some of the photos from TBR Smart Dream Marathon 2016. To follow are photos from our inaugural TBR Dream Half Marathon held on the same day. All images courtesy of our official photographers: Photo-Ops.
42k race start of our Dreamers!
Our volunteer Dream Chasers go all out supporting our Dreamers! Are they blessing her or imparting more energy upon this runner? Your guess is a good as mine lol
So proud to be working with these guys! Host Ton Gatmaitan along with TBR Dream Team: Mike Janeo, myself, Coach Francis Diano, Jun Cruz, Macel Janeo, Coach Lit Onrubia. Missing: Jim Lafferty whose flight was delayed from Egypt so he missed the race and Neville Manaois who was busy checking our course.
Our Dream Chasers: the real heroes of this event
Our last runner who makes it before the cut off with the Dream Chasers behind her
TBR Smart Dream Marathon wouldn’t have been possible without the support of a great number of people. I would like to thank our Dream Chasers who are the real heroes of this event, TBR Dream Team who work tirelessly to ensure we put out a great event, family and friends of our runners who went out there to cheer for our runners, and, last but not the least, our sponsors who provided the generous support to make the entire event possible…Thank you!
Yay, the Mommy Milkshake Run is back! This run is a breathe of fresh air for the competitive runners. It’s a run for the entire family (even preggies and babies) and it’s all in good fun. I’ve never missed a Mommy Milkshake Run, not just because my sis Mommy Mundo organizes it (lol) but also because it’s a chance for me to bond with the kiddos. Here’s how you can join too. Hope to see you there!
Press Release – Mommy Mundo advocates a healthy family life and finds different avenues to create unique activities where families can bond, interact and create new memories together.
