Forty Freakin’ Two Shirts – 2018 Limited Edition

Saturday, 3 February 2018  |  Gear + Gadgets

What started out as a joke to have a “Forty F@c&#in’ Two” shirt was transformed into this and turned out to be a crowd favorite. It’s practically TBR tradition to have our Forty Freakin’ Two shirts every year… and we couldn’t let 2018 pass without one! This limited edition shirt was designed by our TBR Dream Alumni Ricky So and produced by Team Manila for us.

We’re super excited for its release on Feb 7 at TBR Sun Life Dream Marathon Send Off Party. They go on sale that evening for everyone to purchase. Non-Dreamers will be allowed to purchase too. If you can’t make it, have someone else buy it for you because we expect these shirts to go quickly.

Shirts will be sold online on this site the following day, Feb. 8. Stay tuned!

 

SBR.ph All Set for 2018

Wednesday, 31 January 2018  |  News + Promos

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. Now, almost a decade after, I’m happy to see how far SBR.ph has come.

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…)

17 Things I Learned in 2017

Sunday, 7 January 2018  |  Bullish Insights

Hey 2017, thank you for the injuries, disappointments, failures, and tears because, as much as I hated them, they allowed me to appreciate the triumphs, surprises, successes, and laughter this past year.  Here are the 17 things I learned from you:

1- Strength is determined when you achieve power and success, but more so when you rise again after failure.

2- There is no problem that cannot be fixed… even if it’s any of these B’s: boyfriends, bosses, bitches, or bunions. Never ever give up.

3- DNF is not a sign of weakness.  (Read exactly what I’m talking about HERE.)

4- Reading books bring so much more joy and intellectual stimulation than Instagram, Netflix, or men in most cases.

5- It’s okay to be offline. FOMO must not be feared in the first place.  BUT, it’s important to know what FOMO, TTYL and IKR lest you want to be called “Tito” or “Tita.”

6- Online shopping is the best. Except for running shoes.  (Lazada, I love you. Mwah!)

7- It’s never too late to fall in love with lifting weights and building muscle.  (Having said that, I would still prefer to run long and slow in perfectly cool weather outdoors than spend time with machines!)

8- I love protein. I love salmon. I love protein. Oh, did I say that already?

9- Intermittent fasting is liberating!  And, this is coming from an ex-breakfast-obsessed-person!

10- Everyone should travel alone at least once a year. It provides the same happiness as running. It is freedom, adventure and power all at once.

11- You experience the most growth when you experience (and overcome) the greatest pain, biggest failure, or toughest heartbreak… or all of the above at the same time.

12- Slowing down and being content with life is not a sign of aging; it’s a sign of confidence, acceptance, and maturity.

13- Live your own life according to your own rules. Do not settle. Do not compromise. Forgive, but don’t ever forget what that a$$@%# did to you!

14- Be kind. We’re all trying our best. Yes, even that idiot who thinks being a race bandit isn’t cheating.

15- There’s no excuse for being stupid, lazy, or rude.

16- Your children are your best teachers. They test your character the most and constantly inspire you to be the best person you can be.

17- No matter what the world tells you. You are enough.
