Bull Circle 4: Full House!

Thursday, 19 January 2012  |  Running + Triathlon

It was a full house at Fully Booked last night for our 4th Bull Circle for TBR Dream Marathon 2012.

– With exactly 2 more months to go until race day, our runners listened intently to our speakers –

– We filled the 5th floor of Fully Booked. Thanks for coming everyone! –

TBR Dream – Batch 2010 alumni Reylynne dela Paz shared her inspiring story on how she trained for TBR Dream (running around UP at 1 am!), how she finished it, and how far she’s gone since then (she’s nabbed her sub-4 marathon PR and is now training for Bataan Death March.)


Dr. George Canlas, orthopedic surgeon, head of the International Olympic Committee, and member of the Gatorade Sports Science Institute, talked about hydration for runners.


Dr. Randy Molo, orthopedic surgeon, member of Phil. Center for Sports Medicine working with RP athletes and the Azkals, consultant for New Balance, and member of Secondwind Multisport Team, spoke on biomechanics for runners.


I reminded everyone to show up for the next Bull Sessions and Bull Circles! Our next events will be exciting ones as the race draws near. The best is yet to come. Hope to see you then!
