I was fortunate enough to be featured in Southern Living magazine, March-April 2009 issue. The title of the article was “Ahead of the Pack” and they called me the “Speed Mom,” which I initially reacted to with a burst of laughter, followed by a “Hmmm, I like!”

I believe this was the first article on me that featured my life as both the pioneer of Baby Sign Language in the country and as the The Bull Runner. Those two worlds never seemed to merge, save for a couple of people who knew me as both. But, now I’m realizing that I can’t keep them so separate anymore.
At first, I thought they depicted me as more active and busy than I really am. But, upon reading it again, I realized it was pretty accurate covering my hectic but happy life as mom, entrepreneur, and overly obsessed runner slowly making my way into triathlon. They misspelled my last name and gave out the wrong blog address, but after calling me “Speed Mom” those are non-issues to me!
The magazine also featured a friend, Patrick Joson, a running coach who trains in Alabang. I first met him at the Takbong May Yabang race in Cuenca Park last year. Since then, he has been inviting me to run with them at the Ayala Alabang golf course and, with the improving foot, I hope to do so soon.

Note: Yes, I know this is old news as it was the last two month’s issue. But, it took me quite a while to post this as my scanner died last month. Hence, the slightly hazy images above using my digicam.
