I’ve heard about rock concerts for a cause. And almost all of us have run for a cause. BUT…what if we have both? As in, ROCK and RUN for a CAUSE? Now that’s the best of both worlds, don’t you think?

Check out this blog this week on a new concept in road racing that’s sure to rock your world.

Chase The Sun on May 16, 2010

Thursday, 29 April 2010  |  Race Announcements

I love the name of this race: CHASE THE SUN: THE NEUTROGENA RUN. It’s all about summer running and not being afraid to enjoy the great outdoors, which is exactly what I’ll do that weekend: saturday at the beach, sunday at the race. Ooh I can’t wait!

Hope to see you at the race!

NOTE: Race day is SUNDAY, MAY 16, not May 15 as previously announced


– Hmmm…runner here looks familiar. She looks exactly like me, but with 10x more make up on –

Get Out and Run Fat Ass!

Monday, 4 January 2010  |  Race Announcements

Got a fat ass after Holiday bingeing?  Then, the Fat Ass Run is the perfect running event for you.

The Fat Ass Run is NOT a race; it’s a long run for everyone to burn the extra pounds without having to deal with registration or pre-race jitters.  Here’s more info for those interested:

WHAT: Fat Ass Run

WHEN: Jan. 9-10, 2009

WHERE: Clark Parade Grounds

DISTANCE: More or less 2.2.KM loop around Clark Parade Ground (yes, you read it right!)

TIME: 6, 12, 18 & 24 hour time event

START TIME: For 24 hours, the start is 8AM of Saturday, 18 hours – 2PM and the 12 hour at 8PM. This way everyone will finish about the same time (8AM) of the next day (Sunday) and thus, more festive and everyone can have a BEERday and BBQ!

WHY “FAT ASS”: Click here to read how the idea came about in the U.S.A.

Click here for more race details.

Basically, runners will run 2.2km loops, counting the number of loops they make until they reach their goal time. Runners can take a break, eat, or even sleep.

You know, running loops was never my thing, but with a good crowd, the cool weather, plus a whole lot of food around, this event sounds like it’s going to be a lot of fun.  Too bad I’ll be in Cebu Marathon. No worries, I can still be a Fat Ass runner next year, if there’s a repeat.

REGISTRATION: Post your name, chosen event (time category), email addresscontact number and blog name on this LINK

Joy Rojas Runs Across America

Friday, 18 December 2009  |  News + Promos

Joy Rojas is back! It wasn’t too long ago when Joy announced her daunting dream of running across the USA after running across the Philippines in 2005.

Now, Joy Rojas can proudly say she is the first Southeast Asian woman to run across the USA!  She ran 16 states in 169 days, from Los Angeles to New York, running over a marathon daily, covering 5,000-kilometers for Takbong Pangarap Trans-USA Run 2009.

I was fortunate enough to be one among the many friends, family, and press invited to welcome her back from the USA yesterday.  Truth to tell, I was eager to hear about her experience and share this on the blog, but I really came as one of her biggest fans who just wanted to give her a big hug and tell her how much of an inspiration she is to everyone, myself included.

I’ll be posting an interview with Joy soon about her Takbong Pangarap Trans-USA Run 2009. Check this blog again in a few days.
