Got an Energizer® EnergiStick earlier. 

I’ll be testing it on the road come BDM 160 on January 28-29, 2012. I’m hoping that this will add extra battery life on my Garmin 305.

The battery of my Garmin 305 died on me after covering 80.57km or 13hrs48mins on the road during BDM 102 last March 2010.

I’ll make a review after the battle this weekend. Cheers! (parang robot lang… o_0)

Hanggang Sa Muli

Mula ng sumali sa mga patakbo
Ikaw na ang madalas na kasa-kasama ko

CONDURA RUN 2009 (1st 21K)

Ilang giyera na ang ating nilabanan
At ni minsan di mo ako iniwan

Nagalusan, napunit, nasugatan
Hinintay maghilom para muling makasama sa bugbugan

MILO MARATHON 2009 (1st 42K)

Nakasama sa di mabilang na malupit na karera


BDM 102, 2010
Ngunit tingin ko kailangan na natin maghiwalay
Hindi, huwag ka mag-alala, wala tayong away

Bugbog na bugbog ka na kasi sa giyera
Panahon na upang ika’y magpahinga

Alam ko na pwede pa kitang asahan
Malamang sa hindi, ikaw ay aking babalikan
Maraming salamat sa pagsama
Hanggang sa muli, mahal kong Shorts… 
Dahil ang haba na ng aking drama. =p 
Basketball shorts na ginawang Running shorts (Since 2009)

New Year, New You with Riovana

January 9, 2012 Leave a comment

It’s that time of the year again when we come up with our new year’s resolutions.

With all of us wanting to be better versions of ourselves, we then establish several goals to help us achieve our own personal nirvana.

Part of this self-improvement is our health and how we can continuously maintain it at its peak.

We all contend to the fact that the holidays, with all the festivities and the good food, has packed us up with calories and excess pounds.

The new year then presents a new opportunity to turn a new leaf and start exercising once more.

A good way to start losing those extra pounds is to start running, which proves to be a fast-burning, high calorie exercise, not to mention a very fun one to engage in.

Jumpstart your running resolution by visiting Riovana, Sole of Running; the newest haven for Runners and enthusiasts alike.

Founded by one of the institutions in the running industry to date, Coach Rio De La Cruz, Riovana aims to provide each and every runner a heightened experience by giving them the proper tools, knowledge and skills to reach their own running nirvana.

For the record, the store’s name itself came from the owner’s (Rio) and nir(VANA) which connotes a state of enlightenment and transcendence.

Take a Sole Journey inside Riovana. Go Sole Running and find out the perfect pair for you by using the Gait Analysis, a 3-cam set up that helps determine which pair of shoes fits your foot type and running skills.

Enjoy the various shoe brands, apparels and accessories which the store has to offer, guaranteed to fit all types of budgets and needs.

Go Sole Searching with other runners and enthusiasts at Riovana. Utilize Riovana’s very own locker/shower rooms and member’s lounge with free internet access so you can bond with others and share stories while enjoying the relaxing environment before and after the run.

Afterwhich, try out Sole Healing, a sanctuary for post-run treatments and pampering which guarantees a most pleasurable experience to relax your body and soul.

Fulfilling your new year’s resolution of being healthy was never this easy and rewarding.
