Share your passion for fitness: Promo for the Amazing Pinoy Run

One of the goals of the Amazing Pinoy Fun Run is to get more people in the road to overall fitness. Chris and Andrew (first name basis?) emphasized that they wanted to promote fitness so they came up with this race. The Amazing Pinoy Fun Run is a mixture of fun run and Pinoy themed challenges aimed to excite regular and newbie runners.


In line with this goal let me first address a question from fellow blogger Michy.


Michy asks "how does a newbie start running?". I am no expert on running but I will answer this question based on my experience. I started running by doing walk-runs for 30 mins. As my body got used to running, I do less walks and more runs. (E.g.: I start doing 1 min walk and 1 run intervals. After a week, I progress to 1 min walk and 2 min run interval) I did this until I am able to run for 30 mins. If you are already doing regular exercise, you could skip to longer run intervals.

Here is a link to a newbie program to your first 5k run: Couch to 5k program

On April 27 May 25, Amazing Pinoy Fun Run will happen at BGC, Taguig City and with the help of Event Logic, we are giving away 2 free race kits.

To qualify for this promo, just tell us how you shared your passion for fitness on the comments section. Then, put your name, address and preferred race distance (2k/5k/10k).

I ran alone in all my races last year. After losing 15 lbs., I was able to convince my brothers-in-law to also try running. Just last month, they have finished their first 16k.

I was so sickly and overweight before, and after a friend of mine advised me to try running as a form of exercise, I was hooked. Right now, I am more healthy and faster than before. I always tell my friends and officemates to join me in my fun runs because of it has changed me big time. :)
