Takbo.Ph Night Fest

This is fun!!! A night race in Filinvest, Alabang!

The last time I ran that area at night was when Team Boring visited the Alabang group headed by Bb Nao last year. And there was this portion were I saw fireflies! How cool was that?! =D

But bring headlamps or flashlights as there are areas that are really dark. Hope that these areas will be well lit during the race. But still, be ready just in case.

The beneficiary of this race is Runners On A Mission (R.O.A.M.).

Registration is Php 650.00 for all distances.

Registration sites at Skechers Stores (Festival Mall, Glorietta 5, Market Market, Trinoma, Robinson's Ermita)

BDM Conversations (my BDM 160 Ultramarathon experience)

I first ran the streets of Bataan last year during the "Test Run" for the 2nd BDM 102 (CLICK ME! to read the story). As I said on that post...

  • Acknowledge the people who will greet you along the way
  • Give high fives or thumbs-up signs
Well I did those... but I forgot to mention to bring a lot of patience and humility too. Not because of the distance but because of the things you will hear from and conversations you'll have with the people along the route.

Along Km20
Manong1: "Boss, yan na po ba yung FUN RUN?"
Me: "Oho"
Manong1: "San ang FINISH LINE?"
Me: "sa CAPAS po."
Manong1: "Ang layooo!"

Along Km30
Manong2: "Bro, san kayo nag-simula?"
Me: "Sa Mariveles po."
Manong2: "Ang layo ah. San ang tapos?"
Me: "sa CAPAS po."
Manong2: "Nyaaaaaa!"

Along Km40
Kids: "Galingan nyo ha!"
Me: gave them high fives!

Along KM45
Truck Driver: "Hoy! Bilisan nyo, tanghalian na"
Me: x_X

Along Km52
Tricycle Driver: "Boss, sakay ka na para mauna."
Me: "Patay tayo dyan..."
Tricycle Driver: "Bakit, bawal ba mandaya?"
Me: "Kelan pa po naging tama?"

Along Km55
Manong3: "Boss, san pa po kayo galing?"
Me: ----
Manong3: "Boss, san pa po kayo galing?"
Me: ----
Manong3: "Boss!!! Huuuyyyy!!!!"

Along Km65
Me: (talking to the medics) "Boss, ako na ba ang last runner?"
Medic: "Yes sir."
Then after a few minutes, a runner passes by.
Me: "Ayos!"

To all the runners running this weekend for the 3rd BDM 102 Ultramarathon. Bring a lot of patience and humility! Good luck and God Bless you all!

This Is It!!!!

All Women's Run

Last February 28, Monday, I was invited to attend the bloggers dinner at the Stock Market, Highstreet, BGC for the Women's Health and Athena Milk for Women All Women's Run.

I was happy to see familiar faces as most of the bloggers/runners who also attended were my friends (Poj, Roselle, Rene, Rico, Bards, Earl, Carina, Noelle, Timmy, James, Kas).

Anyhow... after a few chitchat about the BDM 160 where I sucked for stopping at KM69. The presentation went underway.
