I’m Back!!!!

April 29, 2011 Leave a comment

Not that I’ve been gone.

I was browsing through my posts and parang medyo naging serysoso ata ang mga naging posts ko for a long time. Compared to my first posts na parang wala lang, parang kwentuhan lang ng magkakaibigan na ako lang ang dumadaldal. Bwehehehe…

At meron lang nag-pakilala sa akin na, “eto ser, si rod, comedy ang blog nito”. Hmnnn… oo nga ano, “comedy” dati ang blog ko. Bakit ba naging serious…

Siguro I’m trying too much to please my supposedly target readers (mga seryosong mananakbo). But then again, naging komedi, naging korni, sumubok maging seryoso na naging korning seryoso… eh wala pa din naman ata bumabasa ng aking mga posts (maliban lang sa mga kaibigan ko *aylabyuol!)

Eniweys…. Basta ang alam ko, I’m back! Mahirap ang serious masyado! Nakaka-stress lalo!!! Bihira na nga makatakbo, tapos seryoso pa???

Tara FUN RUN tayo! Fun Run tayo ng 50K!!! woot!!!

Are you all in? adidas launches registration for ALL24
adidas brings you Philippines’ first epic 24-hour celebration of passion

MANILA, Philippines, April 8, 2011 – Hot on the heels of the launch of its milestone global brand campaign entitled “adidas is all in”, adidas is kick-starting the summer with an epic 24 hour-long celebration of sport, street, and style that is now officially open for registration for interested participants and adidas aficionados.

Titled ALL24, the 24-hour event is part of adidas’ latest groundbreaking campaign, which celebrates the all-embracing passion for the love of the game. To go ‘all-in’ – as an athlete, an artiste, and even as a supporter—ALL24 has been organized as a platform to encourage people to come and celebrate their passion in the grandest scale imaginable, whether it may be sport, music, dance, fashion or art!

Taking place in six cities across the region including Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Singapore and the Philippines, ALL24 will be held at the hippest youth hub in the metro, Eastwood City, Libis on May 14, from 10pm to 10pm the next day.

To keep the energy flowing, popular DJs will be spinning their unique brand of hip-hop, house, and electro beats. Round the clock, top athletes, football stars, professional runners and skateboarders, graffiti artist groups, famous dance crews and celebrity dancers, and the movers and shakers of the fashion industry will be showcasing their love and support for adidas. The adidas family will not only showcase their talents, but will also bond and support young hopefuls as they go all in at ALL24.

adidas is calling on all interested participants to join in on the various activities. Fusing the worlds of sports, music, and fashion, adidas invites young individuals to go all in, whether their passion is basketball, football, running, skateboarding, graffiti, dance or fashion. The ALL24 event is designed to showcase adidas’ distinctive presence across different sports, cultures and lifestyles.

Sports categories
During the 24-hour event, individuals interested in basketball can participate in free-throw and 3-point shootouts, while groups of 3 can join the 3-on-3 competition, with the longest surviving team winning the top prize. For football, players can engage in the 5-on-5 competition—again, with the longest surviving team taking the top prize. Runners, on the other hand, will get their adrenaline pumping for a one-of-a-kind relay race.

Street categories
Skateboarders of all skill levels are encouraged to come down and celebrate their love of the sport. For the contest, skateboarders will need to exhibit their best tricks and stunts in order to be number one. In celebration of street style, graffiti artists are called on to register and create on-the-spot masterpieces in designated areas of the ALL24 event. Dancers get the opportunity to show off their skills whether with their crew in the street dance challenge or on their own in the B-boy/B-girl battle.

Style category
Finally, up-and-coming fashion designers are encouraged to participate in a fashion design competition to display their creativity around the theme of “Passion- The Things that Excite You the Most”. Incorporating the iconic adidas 3-stripes, each piece should celebrate individuality, whether it’s casual contemporary, street sleek or spory chic. The competition will be judged by a panel of well-known industry players and the top creations will make their way to the catwalk on the finale.

How to join
Interested participants can log on to Competitions are open to 14-25 year-old participants. A screening process will be conducted and a minimal joining fee of P240 is required per participant. Competition winners will take home adidas products and cash as prizes. Participants and even supporters at the actual event automatically have a chance to win adidas products, limited edition ALL24 memorabilia, and other amazing freebies.

For supporters and spectators, get 2 tickets for every purchase of adidas products worth P2,400 from April 8 to May 15. adidas will also hold a special 24% discount on any purchase from May 13-15.

frontRUNNER Magazine – The Valley Trail Challenge

April 19, 2011 Leave a comment

I am a newbie in the world of ultra-marathons… after finishing 4 ultra distance races and dnf’d on the 1st 100 miler in the country. I think it’s about time to rest my knees from the pounding of the cement… And that is why I’m going to try the trail…

The Valley Trail Challenge @ Nuvali, Sta Rosa, Laguna

Nagsawa na ba kayo sa paulit-ulit na kalsadang tinatakbuhan ninyo dito sa Metro Manila? Batung-bato na ba kayo sa tigas ng sementong kalsada?

Di ba’t panahon na para subukan ninyo ang ibang klaseng kalsada, ruta at mga bagong tanawin?

You are cordially invited by frontRUNNER Magazine, Ang Pambansang Babasahin ng Mananakbong Pilipino, to the The Valley Trail Challenge that will be held on June 18, 2011 at Nuvali, Sta Rosa, Laguna.

For those who have done the marathon, don’t you think it’s time to test your feet for an ultra marathon? And for those who simply love the outdoors, a 25-kilometer category awaits you.

The route is generally runner-friendly, having a rolling but mostly flat terrain(single and double track dirt roads), and only around 5% will consist of concrete roads. This route offers reprieve from constant pounding on hard surfaces. One loop will consist of 25 kilometers with the start and finish lines situated at the vicinity of the Evolving Center. The course will bring runners to the peripheries of the NUVALI complex which will offer participants majestic views that only nature and NUVALI can offer.

And in the true tradition of trail and ultra running, this race will be a no frills, all thrills race where runners, despite the presence of three aid stations (at Kilometers 9, 20 and 25 – first aid, water and electrolyte drinks), are strongly advised to be self-contained and sufficient, meaning, runners are required to carry their own hydration kits and nutrition supplies. Additionally, it is also recommended that they bring their own first aid kit (cotton balls, antiseptic solution, band aid strips and anti-biotic ointment).

A final briefing and race packet distribution shall be held on June 14, 2011, 6pm at ROX, Bonifacio High Street.

Experience the peace and serenity of your run without the distractions of pre and post-race fanfare.

We hope to see you share the trails with us.

Bring your cameras too!

May 1, 2011 – World Youth Day Fun Run 2011

April 16, 2011 Leave a comment
The Archdiocesan Commission on Youth and Archdiocese of Manila Biblical Apostolate, Archdiocese of Manila invites you to the first ever WORLD YOUTH DAY FUN RUN, happening on May 1, 2011, 5:00AM PICC Grounds, Manila.

This event is a fund raising project in support of the Archdiocese of Manila’s preparatory activities for the upcoming WORLD YOUTH DAY gathering in Madrid, Spain on August 2011, as well as for various formation programs that we have prepared for our young people this year. In addition, we hope to raise enough funds so we can send at least twenty (20) committed and dependable youth delegates to Madrid (Php. 130,000.00 for each delegate), who will in turn echo their experiences and learning’s to the youth in the Archdiocese.

There are at least three major events that the Church has lined up for the youth this year – 2011 as the Year of the Youth, WYD 2011, and beatification of Pope John Paul II.
