But Wait, There's More... #betterforit

What's the surprise? :)

Hello, victorious ladies! Hope you didn't throw away that little white card that came with your Nike Women Victory Tour 2016 race kits, because these are the stuff you can get as a half mary finisher. Woot!

Post-Nike Half Marathon Freebies

A pack of candy (motivation to burn off those sweets. Haha), neon pink laces, and a shoe ID (in either silver or gold color) with WMN engraved! So you'll always be reminded of your aewsome run along the coastline. You go, girl! ;) 

Oh, and wear your Nikes when you pass by to claim them. Commonwealth is giving your hardworking shoes a good shampoo scrub on-the-spot! Too bad I wasn't wearing one.

Been There, Done That? 

If you weren't able to see your name (or even the wall) at the Nike Race Village last Sunday, you can try looking for them here if you want. :)

Commonwealth Sneaker Studio is located at the Ground Floor of SM Aura Premier, Taguig.

A Good Kick

Coffee Bean GK Cup (Summer 2016)

Some of my favorite things in the world, all together in one glorious afternoon... Coffee, Football, and GK. Now this is what a good kick looks like! :)

Oh, if only I was 10-12 years old! (Yes, I would sneak a sip of coffee from my mom's mug even at that age! haha)

Minimalist Shoe-oops!

Insta Minimalist Shoe? :(

Soooo, I went trekking over the weekend and wore my trusty old running shoes (instead of investing in trail appropriate footwear), and this happened. :( Yikes, how embarrassing. 

The trail was a bit rocky, but good thing the ground was dry, so that saved me from a dangerous situation of slipping on the rocks. Our guide was ready to patch it up with duct tape, but I insisted that I was fine. Since the shoe was sewn as a whole, it just felt like a bootie once the sole fell off. It helped that I had insoles as well, so that cushioned the walk. 

I wasn't so bad, I guess. I had a glimpse of how barefoot running must feel like. In fact, I kind of like the feeling of having a constant foot acupressure every time I landed on a rock. The little pebble-sized ones hurt though.

Tell you all about the trail soon! That part was fun. :)

Eco Warriors Slash Runners (Nat Geo Earth Day Run 2016)


I was supposed to run at the half marathon category, but decided to downgrade to a 10K instead. Good thing I did, as I really enjoyed the leisurely run, especially since we've been drowning in sweat these past few weeks. Is is just me, or is this summer especially scorching?

I must say though, I'm glad that the organizers had the foresight to make the gun starts earlier. Though it's not unusual for the full or half marathoners to start madaling araw, I appreciate that the 10K category started earlier than usual at 4:30 AM, which saved us runners from the extra hot morning. 

I even finished the run early enough to enjoy the runner's village with no lines at the booths. Little victories. haha. I felt bad that I wasn't able to line up to drop my "I am running for the..." stub my chosen beneficiary's drop box though. I kinda forgot 'coz I was busy checking out all the booths. For the record, I am running for the Irrawaddy Dolphins!

All in all, I think the Nat Geo Earth Day Run 2016 was a success! Thousands of people joined (I think they even added more race bibs), not only in the Philippines, but also simultaneously across Singapore, Hong Kong, Shanghai, and Taichung. And what's good is that I saw a lot of runners bring their own water bottles to help minimize the disposable cups at the water stations. Good job, eco-warrior runners! :)

Nat Geo Earth Day Run 2016 Results here.

10K Starting Point at BGC

Rockstar mascot!
Didn't know who he was.
I heard someone say he's the Meralco Man, but it turns our he was the Cherifer Boy. ;) 


Kalayaan bridge.
Look at that sky! How do you even describe that? Cotton candy, maybe. :)


A kilometer away from the finish line at McKinley Hills.


Congratulations, eco warrior finishers!

Betadine game. Steady hands (not mine).
I won a bunch of sample packs here.


A new muscle spray player in town. All natural ingredients and all the way from India.
Bought a can, since it's only P120 introductory price here at the run (from P400 original).


A Starbucks booth at the runner's village.


I probably deserve this Frappuccino, right? ;)


All natural brewed tea by homegrown brand, Bayani Brew.
The teas were brewed by nanays from Gawad Kalinga.


Ice cooooold iced tea!

Thank you for the race kit, Takbo.ph (Jinoe & Que). :)
