Eco-Trail Run & Tree-Planting at Bacnotan, La Union

January 30th, 2012 5 comments

I woke up with the view of the surfable waves at San Juan, La Union (Kahuna Beach Resort). The scene was so inviting for a quick morning run, but because I’m running late of our scheduled IT I wasn’t able to run. :(

I was still determined to run, so I made another plan to run. This time not on the beach but on the trail of our next destination- Holcim Cement Plant in Bacnotan, La Union. :)

Trail Run at Tibiao, Antique Foothills

January 2nd, 2012 No comments

I always get my blood pumping soooooo damn good when I run on trails, much more if it’s out-of-town.

Glad that I was able to recover the corrupt photo files from my SD card. I can now blog about my rave run on the foothills of Tibiao mountain in the province of Antique.

WARNING: This post is loaded with my photos (Well, this blog is mine anyway).

Where the is Tibiao, Antique? Thanks Google Earth!

I did an out-and-back run, started at Kayak Inn downhill towards the hi-way and back. It was a scenic Read more…

Late at Men’s Health All Terrain Race 2011

July 5th, 2011 1 comment

This is a late post thus the title but hey I learned during my elementary years that “better be late than never.

I'm still at Paseo de Sta.Rosa on my way to Nuvali at this time


I was also 6 minutes and 32 seconds late for the 5K gun start. Applying what I learned during my grade school years, I ran anyway. I don’t want to miss the opportunity of exploring the trails of Nuvali. Sweat began to flow after a mile, endorphins started working its way into my bloodstream and dirt was all over my shoes and feet. It was an awesome feeling after not running for so long.


I met familiar faces on the course but mostly are newbies in trail running. The course was really made for those who want to try the thrill of the trail for the first time and I bet that everyone enjoyed it. Nothing technical and the hardest part was the slight rolling hills on kilometers 2 and 4. On those hills I saw a lot of runners walk or slowdown. The huffing and puffing breath was music to my ears. I was amped!

If that's the trail, I have no problems with getting lost. I love the thrill of the trail!

These runners surely loved the trails. Have some trails sometime, huh?

I finished the race at 29:59 minus 6:32, making my 5K trail run time 23:27. Not bad for someone who hasn’t ran for some time because of the busyness of his travel schedules. And I think this is a PR for me as I don’t have an official 5K time yet.

Saying I enjoyed the race is an understatement. I was glad that I ran even though I was late.


Lesson: Run even if you are late (saying ang miles), unless it’s an hour late though.


My gratitude for Summit Media and Men’s Health for the invitation to run this race. Congrats to Leadpack for a very organize race.

I love trail running and I believe its a must for every runner to experience the thrill of running on the trails. My first race experience was last year’s Merrell Adventure Race where I ran 15K. As I said in the race review it was PUNISHING & HARDCORE (and I LOVE IT)!

Merrell Launches Barefoot Trail Shoes

April 19th, 2011 No comments

The long wait is over as Merrell takes off the curtain and launches its Vibram-soled Barefoot trail shoes. I was invited on the event that happened last April 8 at Merrell Concept Boutique, Market Market.

RUN, WALK, HIKE with Merrel Barefoot Shoes

Merrell offers 2 choices from their collection for both men and women trail runners.

Men can choose from Trail Glove or True Glove

Women have the Pace Glove or Pure Glove

I tried the Trail Glove and its like wearing a VFF Sprint with added cushioning. It felt great on my feet and I will definitely buy this one.

Some features of the shoes are:



Thumbie Remigio, a trail runner and trail run organizer said that “this is the best shoe he ever worn.” He wore the new Merrell Trail Gloves during the race where he finished strong at 3 hours 28 minutes and 38 seconds and placed 2nd in his age group and 8th overall. The Pilipinas Akyathlon required athletes to cover 21 kilometers of mountain trails 3,000 miles above sea level. He also plans to use the shoes on the his next international race event in Sabah.
