Runner’s World Philippines Now Out
“Welcome to the first issue of Runner’s World Philippines. Whether you’ve just started running or have been plodding on for years, you’re bound to have an obsession with feet…” –Maria Calica, Editor-in-Chief
The story behind my Runner’s World mag.
I was at the magazine section last Saturday when I saw a pic of Coach Rio on the cover. As a newbie runner I got interested. Then I learned that it was the 1st issue of Runner’s World. I’m not really a fan of magazine except if its free or from Booksale. As far as I remember the most expensive mag that I bought was P39. A Surfing mag as I am a “surfer” wannabee. But last weekend I found myself buying Men’s Health for P165. As I was about to pay I remember that my money is just enough for food while in Manila. Good thing that I can use my credit card in Fully-Booked so I got my own copy. Obvious that I’m a running addict already: logging 30-40 kilometers a week, wearing singlet when I sleep, eating pasta thrice a week, and buying a running mag.
When I took the jeepney, I immediately opened the mag and browsed it. When I got home I read every page (36 pages in all) from front to back (all ads and product sponsors and even the names of contributors).
Here are some of my fave picks:
- Rave Run (Can I submit a photo for the next issue?), pp.2-3
- Ask Miles (now I know…), p.6
- Use Your Noodle (Pasta 101), pp.12-13
- Fridge Wisdom (I will definitely try the shake, yum-yum), p.15
- Coach Rio’s Corner (preparing for the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil pala si Coach Rio), p.23
To get us more excited on the next issue, let’s guess who will be the next on the cover? My guess, its Piolo Pascual.
