We’re thrilled to finally have the inaugural Nike Women’s 10k Manila on 9 May 2015 at Filinvest City, Alabang!  Considering how more women are lacing up nowadays (it’s pretty obvious that there’s about a 50:50 split now among men and women running in Manila), it’s a good call for Nike to further grow that market.  Yahooo for us ladies!

Training

Last month, I received the biggest news of my running career: Gatorade had locked in a slot for me to run the prestigious Boston Marathon!

Must Watch Video: TBR ULAH Dream Marathon 2015

I’m proud to present the official video of TBR ULAH Dream Marathon 2015. It pretty much encapsulates the essence of TBR Dream when we first conceptualised it with Jim Lafferty 5 years ago. It was about first-time runners conquering their elusive 42k dream, volunteers coming together as one to support others, and ordinary people doing extraordinary things through running and transforming their lives.

We worked through three drafts of this video before the final product. And, each time, I got teary-eyed seeing our runners cross the finish line. Prepare some tissue before you press play.

Thank you to Digitank for the awesome video!
