2013 is a milestone year for the island of Corregidor as far as races are concerned: it will be host to back-to-back “twin” races that is the Corregidor Marathon (CM) and the venerable Corregidor International Half Marathon (CIHM). Here are the details:

To those running long distances (usually half marathons or longer) energy gels serve as a very convenient source of nutrition: they don’t spoil easily, comes in a minimal packaging, and provide an energy boost without needing to chew. All brands available in the local market is imported, until now, as Unilab introduced the first Philippine-made energy gel simply known as Active Health Sports Gel.

I consider myself a “recreational runner” in the sense that I incorporate running into my lifestyle because aside from its health benefits, it’s fun! I don’t do it as a profession, for prestige or bragging rights, or anything remotely in that direction. As such, I do have a very long list of dream destination races around the world I would like to join in. But if I have to trim my list to five items, here are the ones that would come on top of my mind as of the moment (in no particular order).
August 17, 2008—five years ago when yours truly got introduced to running, and the rest as they say, is history. And instead of my usual nostalgic thoughts about that milestone, I thought of sharing some information that may be useful to other runners out there. And because it’s my fifth running anniversary, I didn’t just thought of sharing a list of five items I liked—I’m sharing five lists of five items each!
