Globe Adventure Taal for Cleanwater: Bike, Kayak, Run

October 31st, 2011 4 comments

And so i thought that SWIM-BIKE-RUN is so cool, this BIKE-KAYAK-RUN race is cooler for me. AWESOME!

Yeah, if I have a bike for racing in a tourney like this, I would love to join. Just the thought of doing this and finishing is already an achievement for me.

But I think the chances are lean now. Let me just promote this event for adrenaline-junkies like me:

Run United Iloilo: 21K for only 20 Minutes

October 6th, 2011 No comments

This is my fastest 21K finish and I just walked!

How would I explain that…

So I went to Iloilo (from Manila) for the Run United Iloilo 21K. I even stopped partying at 1am so I can still take a nap before the gunstart only to find out that the race was cancelled.

Oh oh…

STARTING LINE:

 

Starting Line, 5:09am

 

FINISH LINE:

 

Finish Line, 5:29am

 

I’m so sad… But I understand their reason, the winds are so strong it trampled everything in Iloilo Sports Complex. They say its for our own safety…

I just hope that Run United Bacolod would have a nice weather.

 

No run today, just get back to sleep James...

 

Here’s what I read from Sir Boy Ramos from Unilab Active Health and RunRio (via takbo.ph):

Dear Ilo-ilo runners, we from Unilab Activehealth and Runrio Inc. regret to inform you that today’s (Oct2) RunUnited Iloilo event is CANCELLED. This is due to the fact that the hard rainfall and strong winds pose great risk to both kids and adult runners. We have gone through tremendous lengths to prepare for this event but we have decided to prioritize the safety of the runners. Kindly await for the rescheduled event date of RunUnited Ilo-Ilo. Thank you for your understanding.
