Belated Happy Easter! How did you celebrate easter? I started easter morning, as I’ve done every year, with a long run with friends. I covered 21k, my 2nd to the last long run before Boston Marathon, and I must admit that I’m soooo looking forward to tapering next week. I usually love long runs preparing for a marathon, but the heat and humidity the past week has just been excruciating! If you’re dreading the summer heat like me, here are 10 cool tips for running outdoors… (more…)
We’re thrilled to finally have the inaugural Nike Women’s 10k Manila on 9 May 2015 at Filinvest City, Alabang!

We worked through three drafts of this video before the final product. And, each time, I got teary-eyed seeing our runners cross the finish line. Prepare some tissue before you press play.
Thank you to Digitank for the awesome video!
