PDI List of Top 15 CEO Runners

Tuesday, 15 March 2011  |  Press

Wow. Huge thanks to Philippine Daily Inquirer for including little ol’ me in their list of Top 15 CEO Runners.  I am thankful. And, oh boy, I am so not worthy.

By the way, they said my 10k PR is 40.57 mins.  It’s a typo (although I seriously wish it wasn’t!).  Add 6 minutes to my 10k PR which is 46.57.

Guess who’s on today’s issue of Sunday Inquirer Magazine?

The article below is about how I successfully recruited hubby into the world of addictive running. Er, I mean, how running has become a part of our lives. Thanks to Joy Rojas (yes, of Takbong Pangarap fame) for the wonderful article…

While you were recovering from your Nike+ Human Race race a couple of days ago, you may have been sipping your morning coffee while browsing through the Sunday papers. If you had Phil. Daily Inquirer, you may have read Ms. Tessa Prieto-Valdez’s column which featured the race and the Nike Lunar Testing…



Zoom in on the photo above and you may just find a few familiar faces in there…


To Tessa Valdez, thank you for the feature! Best of luck in NY Marathon. And, if or when I see you in another race, I hope I’ll finally have the guts to say HI!

Running PR

Monday, 28 April 2008  |  Press

Did you read the papers yesterday? Running was featured in two major dailies—Philippine Star and Inquirer. Running PR isn’t just about Personal Records anymore, but also Press Release!

This is good news to all of us Pinoy Runners (hey that’s another PR?!) who can only benefit from the growing popularity of running in the country.

Here’s the article on Star featuring Global City Run…


Then another article on running by Tanya Lara…


and another on Inquirer featuring Condura Race…


In the column of Tanya Lara, she features a friend, Mon Domingo, one of the forces behind Happy Feet running group of which I am a part of, together with Eduardo Padilla, the barefoot runner. I’ve known “Master Mon” for almost a year now but only learned through this article that he’s ran 19 marathons with a 3:50 PR in 2004. Congratulations Master Mon! Pa-autograph naman ng singlet sa next race!
