15% off New Running Shoes Thanks to my NYC Hangover & The Brick

Friday, 19 November 2010  |  Gear + Gadgets

I confess. I’m still on vacation/recovery mode.  That should explain why I haven’t even blogged about NYC Marathon. Why I can’t write much about running (it’s the last thing I want to think of right now).  Why I’ve only run 5k since the marathon yet I’m not complaining.  And, why I haven’t told anyone I’m back in Manila…even if I arrived last Monday.

I loved everything about the trip.  It wasn’t just about realizing my dream of running NYC.  It was the freedom I had from all responsibilities, pressures, and worries.  It was much needed and, must I say, well-deserved after months of 24/7 work.

I’m not ready to go back into the real world just yet.  But, today is the deadline I gave to myself.  By Monday, it’s back to reality for me.  I have to work again, go out for meetings, tear off a new sheet of paper and start a new to do list which will fill quickly.  And, worst of all, I have to stop eating chocolate.  Good bye mint M&Ms!

As a celebration of my month long vacation which I still wish would never end, I’d like to share this little gift with you:  Thanks to The Brick Multi Sport Store , we’re offering 15% discount on Asics, Mizuno, New Balance, and K-Swiss running shoes from today until December 5, 2010.  Just print out the coupon below and present at The Brick.  For inquiries or clarifications, contact Leroy at The Brick 985-4890.


Happy shopping!  I’ve done more than enough while I was away.

Now Open: The Brick Multi-Sport Store

Monday, 9 August 2010  |  News + Promos

Last Saturday, I visited McKinley Hill twice. The first was at 6 a.m. as part of our 15k run with hubby around the area. Second was later in the afternoon for the opening of The Brick Multi-Sport Store.


– Part-owner top Philippine triathlete Noy Jopson welcomes guests –


– Running priest Fr. Robert Reyes blessed the store (and Noy too). I regret being too shy to ask for a photo with Fr. Robert…ack. –


– Fred Uytengsu of Alaska and Ironman Camsur and Harry Tan of Cobra cut the ribbon –

The Brick has a wide array of shoes and apparel, a treadmill for shoe testing, bikes, watches, bags, gels and many many more.




The Brick Multi-Sport store is now open at Unit 1, Woodridge Apartments, McKinley Hill, Taguig City (across Venice Piazza, just at the bottom of that deadly hill we all dread at races!)

Open Mon to Sat, 7 am to 9 pm
