Rebuild Homes by Running: Race For Life

The past year has been so devastating for some Filipinos because of typhoons in our land. It became so often that those who just see these catastrophic events in the mainstream media became numb already and seemed not to be moved anymore. Now, who would't want to help  by just doing the thing that we really love to do? By simply running Race For Life, we could help people more than we could ever realize. The category we will choose will definitely go a long way for others who are rebuilding their homes from the ground up. So register and help BDO foundation, Inc. to rebuild homes our fellowmen.

At my age, bringing back the child in me is a big deal. LOL! Come March 10 2013, "the" new obstacle race will come in the city. Don't be left out! Register and be surprised to what Without Limits and Proactive are in store for us this time.

Congratulations Ryan for Winning Diadora Bag!!!

My family started this day by celebrating the holy Eucharist. There will be nothing better to do first thing in the morning than giving thanks for all the blessings we received. And since celebrating 7th wedding anniversary only comes only once in a lifetime (the next one would already be the 8th right? LOL!), I decided a week ago to raffle off one cool Diadora Bag today to express how grateful I am for all the blessings God has and continuously providing to me and my family.

PMMA FEST 2013 : Takbo Para sa Marino (5K Fun Run)

Just last year, China and the Philippines was locked on a naval stand-off. Our largest naval vessel was engaged with two Chinese maritime surveillance in a remote lagoon in the south china sea. Only then I realized how important the marines are. They are our first line of defense out in the sea, thus, its imperative to strengthen them or at least do something for their welfare. As runners, we now have a chance to look out on the welfare of those who are looking out for us and our sovereignty for almost two centuries.

Fun Run with Colorful Innovation

My wife and I had so much fun at Color Manila Run. Its my first race for the year 2013. Oooppss! Sorry, its not a race actually, its a 'fun run' reinvented with colorful innovation. Twas nothin like any regular races here in the metro. Its participants were not the regular runners we often see on running events. The starting line was like a time portal that warped me back to my childhood. It just brings out  the child in me upon transverse.
