Bull Circle 1: The Marathon Dream

Thursday, 27 October 2011  |  Bullish Insights

It was a full house last night for the 1st Bull Circle entitled: The Marathon Dream at ROX, Bonifacio High Street.



I started with a talk on my life as a runner, mother, wife and my journey towards my first marathon. I also shared the story of how the concept of The Bull Runner Dream Marathon was born.



Neville Manaois, team principal of Team Pinoy Ultra Runners, co-owner of Secondwind Running Store, and the guy who paced me in the last 10k of my first unofficial marathon, gave a great talk on the history of the marathon and the reasons why thousands of people all over the world are enamored by it.


TBR Dream alumni Bic Ferreria and Ton Gatmaitan shared how they despised running in the past and ended up loving the sport. They shared their experiences running TBR Dream in 2010 and 2011 and gave tips on training for the big day.



Fitness couple Armand and Mitch Mendoza gave a brief introduction on the free TBR DM Weight Management Program that 100 TBR Dream Runners will undergo for free while training for the marathon.


I had a great time meeting some of our runners face-to-face and seeing the excitement and thrill in their faces. Until the next time, TBR Dreamers!
