Before I noticed it, Run United 2 came, and while I survived, I can’t say I was quite prepared. Not only was it my longest race thus far, it was also one of my slowest race ever. Here’s my Run United 2 story.

Time flies when you’re having fun, and also when you’re quite busy. Being a one man team at work made me forgot all about the rest of the world and before I noticed it, it was just a week before it’s time for my first 32K of the year, Run United 2 (due this Sunday!).
AyalaLand will be having a trail run very, very soon (as in Saturday, June 08, 2013) to be held for the first time in Porac, Pampanga, called EXPLORAC Invitational Trail Run. More details to come very soon!
I’ve always loved Saturday night races: there’s no risk of a sunburn and there’s absolutely no need to wake-up early! As such, I was really excited with my first night race of the year, Energizer Night Race Manila.
Filinvest City is known for its business district and the nice community surrounding it but to those who don’t know the area that well, who would’ve known that Filinvest City boasts of great bike/trail routes?
It’s been quite a while since I last joined a night race so I’m quite excited with the upcoming Energizer Night Race Manila 2013 on May 04, 2013. Here are the event particulars:

Like many Filipinos, I commemorated this year’s Holy Week with a visit to various churches. I realized that I wasn’t able to do this last year, so this year it’s a must that I outdo the shortcomings of the previous year.
Hamilo Coast is just beautiful, but hiding behind its scenic coastlines and terrains lie some of the toughest trails I’ve ever been to, and the recent Salomon XTrail Run was just one of the toughest trail runs I’ve ever had.
Time flies so fast and before we know it, it’s already the middle of March! New Year seemed like yesterday and with all the crazy work that I have in the office I didn’t notice the first leg of the Run United 2013 series coming. Of course I wouldn’t just let RU1 slip just because I got “lazy!”
Last February 23, 2013, yours truly alongside with other runner bloggers and the members of the media were invited by Salomon Philippines to have a sneak peak of the trails of the forthcoming Salomon XTrail Run to be held this March 23, 2013 in Hamilo Coast, Pico de Loro, Nasugbu, Batangas. If you plan on joining this race, you absolutely must see this post before picking your distance!
