I woke up at 3:00 AM with a splitting headache.  Woah boy, not a great way to start the day especially when you’ve got a race to join.  I popped a pill to address the headache and proceeded to prepare for my 10k run at Run United Philippine Marathon.

There was no way I was going to miss this race.  It was my last Sunday run before Chicago Marathon.  It was my way of supporting my partner, Unilab Active Health.  And, last but not the least, who doesn’t join one of the biggest races of the country? (more…)

BikeKing Multisport Race Calendar 2015

Tuesday, 30 September 2014  |  Race Announcements

I love how some organizers are releasing their 2015 race calendars as early as now to allow for early race planning among us athletes.  With so many triathlon events next year (I hear there are nine, yes nine, 70.3s next year!) it’s good that we can all choose the races that we’d like to spend our blood, sweat, and tears on.  Below is BikeKing’s Multisport Race Calendar for 2015.  TriUnited 2 has always been one of my fave triathlons!

The adidas Energy Boost 2 is a lightweight neutral running shoe for long distance running. While I would’ve loved to test this shoe for longer runs, I must confess that I couldn’t test it for runs above 10k because I’m a flat-footed overpronator who uses stability shoes. I will tell you that I was very pleased with it during my runs and, to be quite honest with you, it’s the best pair of adidas running shoes I’ve ever owned. (more…)
