Knowledge Channel’s Run for Knowledge 2010

October 18, 2010 2 comments

Knowledge Channel Foundation Inc. (KCFI) launches KaRUNungan 2010, which aims to help generate awareness and support for the continued resource and learning gaps in the Philippine education system. The funds it will raise through this campaign will be used to produce instructional shows in English, Science and Math, using “virtual” teachers on air. KCFI wishes to help the majority of elementary and high school students, who are still unable to attain adequate mastery of their lessons.

Through KaRUNungan 2010 and various running events, KCFI enjoins the growing
Filipino community of runners to champion the cause of Philippine education, and give Filipino students their second wind that will help them reach the finish line. As KaRUNungan 2010’s theme says, “Every Learner, A Finisher.”

Karunungan 2010 Manila will be held on November 28 at the Meralco Compound in Ortigas. A total of 5,000 runners are expected to join the event.

Sidebar on NY:

Runners taking part in the ING New York City Marathon 2010 can go the extra mile by dedicating their run to helping marginalized public school students. They can do this by asking friends and supporters to donate $1 for every kilometer they reach on November 7.

Why Do I Run, Again?

October 16, 2010 2 comments

Not that I stopped running. I’m just thinking, why I started.

You see, I’m not really much of a runner. My built is not that of a runner. I have big calves which I don’t see on fast runners.

Well, I walk fast. That’s it.

So, why did I start running? To lose weight. Period.

If I can be a fast runner in the process while losing weight then it’ll be a plus.

Why do you run again?

We Didn’t Start The Fire

October 11, 2010 Leave a comment

Yup, we never did.

But many of us helped keep the fire burning.
Now, the fire starter seems out of sight.
Da hu? Sorry, I can’t say.
People close to me might have an idea.
But i’m not telling.
I’ll treat this as a Note To Self post…
Let’s keep running.
Let’s keep our own fire burning…

Bakit Kami Malayo Tumakbo?

October 7, 2010 12 comments

Ilang beses ko na narinig ang tanong na iyan

Di ko alam kung kayo ay nasisiyahan
Alam ko na mabilis kayong tumakbo
Kitang-kita naman sa listahang ginawa nyo
Pero, kaya mo bang sumabay sa amin?
Try mo lang… Tignan natin kung iyong kakayanin.
Siguro akala mo kami’y mayayabang
Hindi po, ang mga pangyayari ay nagkataon lamang
Nagkataon lamang na mas masaya kaming tumakbo ng malayo
Kaysa sa makipaghabulan sa oras at makipagmabilisan sa maraming tao
Kami ay natutuwa sa narating ng bilis ninyo
Baka pwedeng matuwa din kayo
Sa amin na malayo ang tinatakbo
Hindi kami nakikipag unahan kanino man
Hindi rin naman kami nakikipag-paligsahan
Ang aming mga sarili ang aming kalaban
Kaya, utang na loob walang pakialaman
Pero, bakit nga ba maikli lang ang iyong tinatakbo?
Ikaw ba ay natatakot sa mahaba, at baka ito’y di makayanan mo?
Huwag kang mag-alala pag iyong sinubukan
Kami ay laging nasa paligid at handa kang tulungan
Hindi naman kami mga suplado
Kami ay handang tumulong, nakita mo na ba kung paano?
Tara na, sa amin ay sumama
Alam kong gusto mo din, kaya’t tama na ang drama
*Bow… aytenkyu…
