Donate to Yolanda Victims through The Foreign Runner & Secondwind Running Store

Monday, 11 November 2013  |  News + Promos

There are just no words to explain the devastation brought about by Yolanda to our country. At this point, each one of us should really do our part to help out.

Some of you may know Philip Leroux, a runner, triathlete with the Secondwind Triathlon Team, and running blogger (The Foreign Runner). Philip is a missionary based in Cuyo, Palawan. He’s a good friend of mine.

Philip posted this call for support on Facebook and, as relayed by Hector of Secondwind, I’m sharing the message to anyone who would like to help. More details below on where and when to send your donations:



  • Clothes, foot covering, food, and medicine
  • Cash – please seal with signature and indicate how much and donor


  • Now until November 29, 2013
  • Philip arrives nov 21, 2013. Secondwind will collect and centralize donations for him until November 30, 2013

Secondwind Running Store Opens Its 3rd Branch in Greenhills

Wednesday, 4 April 2012  |  Gear + Gadgets

Secondwind Running Store opened its third branch in Greenhills!

Address: Unit 107, G-Strip, Greenhills Shopping Center, San Juan

I just love Secondwind’s new campaign: IT’S ALL YOU. In running (and in life), there’s really no one responsible for your triumph or failure, but yourself. Your coach, teammates, friends and family will be there to support you, but, at the end of the day, it’s all you. That medal around your neck was borne out of your hardwork and perseverance. Conversely, struggling to make it to the finish of a race is also because of your lack of training and preparation. It’s all you!

Or, could they also mean that the store lives and breathes for its customers. It’s all us?! Hey, that works for me too!




Here’s the location map:


Secondwind has two other branches:
Ortigas: 914-0283
QC: 238-4005

Secondwind’s 2011 Runner’s Choice for Shoes

Sunday, 1 January 2012  |  Gear + Gadgets

Secondwind Running store has just released it’s “2011 Runner’s Choice” – a comprehensive list of the top 3 choices for running shoes made by their customers for each category of running shoes: Beginner’s, Trail, Neutral, Neutral (Cushioning), Stability, Stability (moderate), and Lightweight/Racing.

As for the Best Shoe of the Year for Secondwind, guess who won…the KSwiss K-Ona.

Best Lightweight/Racing shoe for women was my very own pair: the KSwiss Kwicky Blade Light. This was my shoe for 2011 too.

– the 2012 Kwicky Blade Light for Women that I currently use –

What running shoes will we see next year and what shoe will stand out?  Let’s wait and see.  Just another reason to get excited about 2012!
