A 43 Kms Run For A Cause: “Run For Children With Cancer”

29 04 2012

Compassion is a call, a demand of nature, to relieve the unhappy as hunger is a natural call for food. -Joseph Butler


On Friday June 1, 2012…I will run a 43 kms from Naic Km 50 to General Trias km 28 and vice versa (Total 44 kms=43 kms) and when I reach the finish line, I will donate a certain amount for the benefit of those children suffering from cancer. I did the same thing few years back where I ran for the benefit of the ‘chosen children foundation’. And now, as a way of celebrating  life, I have plan to do this regularly once every 2 months. And this is my first major step.

This Run For A Cause will start at exactly 4am and cut-off time is 7 hours.

If you want to be a part of this worthy cause, you can donate in cash or in kind and all your donations will be given to those little angels. List of donors will be posted here. Update with pictures can be expected  after the event.

Email me fol.forever@gmail.com if you want to be a part.

Thank you and God bless.

Quezon City International 42k Marathon 2011 Edition

2 12 2011

“To run is to worship.” -Ronnie de Lara

This coming Sunday, December 4, 2011, I’ll be joining the QCIM 42K marathon courtesy of Mr. David de Leon who sponsored me and my running mate, Romy Irevera.  This nice fella was also our sponsor  last year. Thank you so much Sir David. : )

After the Nuvali 60K last June 2011, I joined  Milo 42K and Adidas 21K. Sad to say, I was not able to post the race result  here. I’ll try  my best to update my races the soonest time possible.

Special thanks also to Miss Issa of Adidas marketing for the sponsorship during the Adidas KOTR last October 2011. I owe you one Ma’am.

Although I’m not visible in majority of the races nowadays, I see to it that I do train regularly. I run on the road, off the road or in the treadmill rain or shine anytime of the day. For me, running is a form of worship. During this activity, I can sing spiritual songs, pray, intercede and talk to God. Nothing beats the feeling knowing that  you’re strong physically and  spiritually. Glory to God.

See you this coming Sunday at the starting line. I’ll update you with the race result ASAP.

Let me end with this quotation coming  from David Goggins, “I don’t stop when I’m tired, I stop when I’m done.”

God bless us all!

“If you can’t change your fate, change your attitude.” -Amy Tan

Last June 18, 2011 Saturday, I conquered Nuvali Sta Rosa Laguna 58 kilometers Ultra-Marathon in 10 hours and 17 minutes.

Let me share with you some pictures of that event:

It was a difficult but a very nice race. Recap to follow next time.

To all Ultra-runners who conquered the same distance that I did last Saturday, Congratulations.

See you in Manila International Marathon 42k this weekend.

25K/50K front RUNNER (The Valley Trail Challenge)

16 06 2011


My 3rd Race for this year will happen this coming Saturday, June 18, 2011. Let me post this:

frontRUNNER ‘The Valley Trail Challenge’ June 18, 2011 Nuvali, Sta Rosa, Laguna 25K / 50K …

For those who have done the marathon here’s a great time to try 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 Evoliving 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). Registration Fee: (Limited Slots) 25K – PHP 750.00 50K – PHP 950.00 (includes finisher’s shirt and token) Registration Venue: A Runner’s Circle – Aloha Hotel, RoxasBlvd.– 567-4786

See you there at the 50K category.

God bless.

Patakbo-Takbo Lang…

11 05 2011

“Running is a thing worth doing not because of future rewards it bestows, but because of how it feeds our bodies and minds and souls in the present.” -Kevin Nelson

Kahit na anong gawin kong pag-iwas sa pagtakbo, sadyang lagi pa rin akong dinadala ng aking mga paa papunta dito. Ito’y nasubukan ko ng di ako tumakbo ng limang araw dahil na din sa pagod at puyat (due to work of course) na sinamahan pa ng ulan dahil sa napakaagang pagdating ng bagyo. Nakakatamad kasing tumakbo pag basa na ang kalsada at medyo umaambon pa di ka pa man nakakapagumpisa…

Buti na lang at may ‘treadmill’ sa work station ko kaya yun na lang muna ang aking pinagtyagaan. Noong una, di ko sya pinapansin dahil hindi ako talaga sanay na tumakbo sa treadmill. Sa panahong wala kang ibang pagpipilian, tatakbo ka kahit saan at anong paraan. Sabi nga, once a runner, always a runner.

Sa darating nga palang May 22, 2011, kung kalooban po ng Dios, baka makasali ako sa 15K Brooks Run Happy na gagawin sa The Fort. Medyo mura ang Registration Fee P600 at kaya ng budget. Mamimigay daw sila ng authentic Brooks singlet at may timing chip pa. Tamang tama dahil maganda naman ang quality ng Brooks, may running short  nga ako nito na matagal ko ng sinusuot sa mga running practices at hanggang ngayo’y nagagamit ko pa. Magkita kita po tayo doon, kaibigan.

Hectic man po ang schedule natin, dapat di natin kalimutang alagaan ang ating katawan, at isang mabisang paraan ay ang pagtakbo. Kapag nag gym ako ngayon, kinabukasan naman ay tatakbo ako. At isang beses sa isang Linggo naman ang aking mahabang pagbibisikleta…

May mga nagtatanong nga pala kung di daw ba ako napapagod? Ang lagi kong sagot ay simple lamang…”Mas nakakapagod ang walang ginagawa.”

See you at the road and remember…God loves you always.

God be Praised!
