Why do you RUN?

I run because...

when I run my mind is empty and I focus only on the road ahead.

Share your reason for running.
Comment. Thanks.


One of Cebu's Triathlon teams needs sponsors. The Team is composed of 4 males and a single female runner, swimmer and cyclist. They are TEAM REBORN. (for the complete list of team members click HERE)

The team was recently blessed when one major sponsor offered to provide the entire team with uniforms. FRS Real Energy Supplement , which the team frequently uses, offered to sponsor the team and help promote the healthy and active lifestyle. Their brand / logo will be clearly visible in front of our uniforms. But our trisuits are still empty. We need other sponsors who want to promote their products which are consistent with the ideals of a healthy and active lifestyle. Sponsor products will be promoted in all running and cycling races in which the Team is participating and during team training.

If you want to have your products / services promoted, contact Raymund @ (0922) 826-6865 or email me at reelraymund@gmail.com.

With all the weekly running races scheduled in Cebu it is not unusual that many will want to experience other forms of endurance sports. Some swim while others Bike. A few do all three. 
Modern Triathlon started in California, USA however was made famous in Hawaii when an argument between who has the most endurance was started. Navy personnel suggested to combine all 3 long distance races in Hawaii into one big event. They merged the 3.86Km swim of the Waikiki Roughwater Swim, 185Km bike of the Around-Oahu Bike Race and the 42.195Km run of the Honolulu Marathon. They then called the first person to finish the course "The Ironman".
Not many athletes start out good in all three sports. Training, for all three sports, is not only strenuous to our body but demand so much time as well. 
This coming Sunday, Danao City will host another triathlon race. Cyclists, Runners and swimmers will join and race alongside Filipino Ironman Champion Noy Jopson and other elite triathletes. Most will join and complete the course individually but some may team up and carry out separate tasks. One will swim, the other will Bike and another will run. Not only will it be a new experience for all three members but will be a test of each others bond. 
Join a triathlon race as a RELAY TEAM. Rally up your friends who can swim, bike or run and experience another rush of excitement. The TEAM can choose between 2 distance events. The Sprint distance consist of a 750m swim, 30Km bike and 7.5Km run while the Standard/ Olympic distance will cover 1.5Km swim, 40Km bike and a 10K run. 
Register on-site starting at 6am at the Danao Fish Port where all the events start. The race usually starts at 7:30AM in the Danao Pier. The Transition zone will be at the pier as well as the finish line. 

See you this Sunday!!! And do not forget to enjoy the Race!!!

Become a Hero

Running has many purposes. Many run to stay healthy. Others run to lose weight. Some run to reduce stress. Few run for publicity. Rare is the runner who do it for others. 
(Ken during his missions in Iraq)
Army officer Kenneth Tenebro runs for his U.S. Army brothers. Wounded soldiers need constant financial support and Ken helps them by running for charity. How? For every kilometer ran others donate money. The more he runs races across the world, the more money he provides for his wounded brothers. That is why Ken runs a full marathon every month starting last year. He is a Hero. 
(Ken during the L.A. Marathon)
We now have a chance to help those who are in need. A chance to be called a Hero.

Run for charity. Whether it be for Bebe who is fighting Nasopharyngeal cancer. Or children who can not afford shoes. Or the homeless Children. You choose.

Run for Bebe

34th MILO Marathon

Be someone's Hero. Run for a Cause. 

See you on the Road.

2XU Calf Sleeves... My Tights Replacement

Are you a convert? Have you witnessed the difference of running with tights? Do you still have leg or knee pains during and after your runs?
Running Tights improve circulation to the muscles thus providing more energy for activity. It also helps maintain proper alignment and form during runs therefore reducing the risk for injury. In cold climates, it helps warm the exercising muscles. Some tights are also more specific in function. Recovery Tights help muscles recover after a hard run. Some enhance muscle power during races.

The problem with tights is that most men think its used only by women. Some are also embarrassed to wear them during runs because of the form or shape. To avoid feeling awkward during runs, some wear shorts on top of the tights.

I was recently asked by a runner/ friend on knee and calf pains. He would regularly have calf pains during or sometimes after runs. I advised him on proper running techniques and physical therapy. I also told him to use calf supports to promote better circulation and recovery.

During the Looney Tunes Run, I wore a 2XU calf support instead of my racing tights while I was pacing for a friend. I see many International triathletes wearing these supports during events and was curious to know how it feels. I also wanted to know if these supports can be used instead of my tights.
At first glance, these calf supports looked funny as they resemble knee high socks frequently used by high school girls. While I was waiting for the event to start, the supports kept my calves warm and ready for the run. These also gave me the same calf compression I feel when I wear my tights. Stirrups provided also ensure that the sleeves do not move during activity or running. I can also use these during cycling for my triathlon training. When used together with my 2XU Tri Top and Tri Shorts I look like a member of the X-Men. Cool. 

See you on the Road.
