My #ActiveHealthRunnersSummit2013 experience

Unilab Active Health organized a series of seminars and talks that will supplement our running careers last August 17 at the Bayanihan Hall. This event had taught us a great deal of information to become better runners. In addition, we came home with lots of Unilab Active Health products and opportunities for big discounts from Riovana, Thorlos and Salice.


The day started with a hearty breakfast and a series of talks from UST Rehabiliation Science experts on how to properly warm up and prevent running injuries. They had us try out a few dynamic warm up exercises specific to running including high knees, butt kicks, inch worms, world's greatest stretch and a lot more. Then, we got into the detail on how to properly train with the right running technique and training.

Before lunch time, the PBA Legends had made a surprise visit to promote Alaxan FR. The event organizers provided us with a great lunch before we learned about the properly nutrition to make running a better tool for achieving our weight and running goals.

My favorite part of the summit was a talk by Coach Rio on how to attain your running goal. Everyone was engaged to listening on how he achieved his goals of being the top finisher in the Milo Marathon. It was extra special as he showed us how real running plans work with his experiences.

Kuya Kim closed the event by sharing how to be motivated to be a better runner. He shared his experiences and a technique to get great results to races.

Watch out for the next active health event

Attending the event is a great investment to become better runners. The next one will surely be better than this informative session. Even more helpful to our running careers so be on the look out at ULAH FB page.

Inspiring Future Champions: Alaska IronKids Philippines has become a training ground for young Filipino triathletes.

Press Release

Alaska IronKids Philippines triathlon started out as a Sunday fun run for kids but in just a short time, it quickly developed into a national sporting event that has nurtured and developed young local triathletes. Triathlon is composed of three disciplines: swimming, biking and running. Now on its fourth year, the event has attracted hundreds of young participants, all wanting to conquer the IronKids course, considered to be the junior counterpart of the prestigious triathlon event, IronMan.

According to coach and race director Ani De Leon-Brown, Alaska IronKids Philippines has become, in recent years, a training ground for the country’s aspiring young triathletes. It is part of the Alaska Sports’ Nutrition. Action. Champion. program, along with Alaska Football and Basketball Camps  and the Jr. NBA presented by Alaska. The program hopes to encourage children to play outdoors or get  into sports and learn the values of determination, discipline, hardwork and teamwork.  “When I was in the national team for triathlon, our main problem was the lack of depth in the talent pool. There were only a few young boys and girls, who wanted to take up the sport seriously and take it to the next level. But now, there are a lot of them because of events like these. I am very proud of the program. Through the years, you could really see the growth.”

Arno Baetz is one of those aspiring young talents. At this year’s Alaska IronKids Philippines Triathlon leg in Mactan Shangri-La in Cebu, Baetz dominated the 13 to 14 year-old boys category. Based in Hong Kong, the 13-year-old flies to the country every now and then to join competitions and to train, hoping to one day fulfill his dream of becoming an IronMan. The Filipino-German can’t thank his parents enough for supporting his dream. “In every race, they are there to cheer me on. Their confidence in me motivates me even more to do better.” According to him, getting into triathlon has changed his lifestyle a lot. “I eat healthier. I don’t sleep late. No more videogames for me,” says Baetz.

Judging from the parents, siblings and friends who came to support the participants in the Cebu leg, Alaska IronKids Philippines has become a family affair. Parents could be seen waving handkerchiefs and shouting words of encouragement. And what is great about the Alaska IronKids, there are no losers. All finishers are given medals as long as they complete the course.

Despite the spirit of fun, the race does honor the hard work and commitment to excellence of young triathletes who set aside time for training to develop their skills. Leading the pack at this year’s Alaska IronKids are Arno Baetz and Shaia Ruth Uy, who ruled the 13 to 14 years old category and Bambam Manglicmot and Lauren Plaza, who finished first in the 11-12 years old category.  Others who figured in the top three were Craig Uy and Nathan Nalo, Nicole Eijansantos and Samantha Borlain, who were second and third finishers in the 11 to12 years old boys and girls respectively. Justin Chiongbian and Brent Valelo, on the other hand, were second and third placers in the 13 to 14 years old boys while Alexandra Leather and Margarita Delos Reyes trailed after first placer Shaia Uy in the 13 to 14 years old girls category.

This year, more than 200 kids signed up for the Cebu leg. While the participants of the 13 to 14 years old and 11-12 years old categories were able to race, the races for the two other age categories: 9 to 10 years old and 7 to 8 years old were canceled due to bad weather. For the Alaska IronKids organizers, safety of the participants comes first.

Caroline Borlain, mother of Tara, this year’s defending champion in the 9 to 10 years old girls category, agreed with the decision. “We wanted Tara to race because she prepared for this and trained hard but Tara herself said to us, ‘It’s God’s will.’ And she’s right. The money we spent for the trip is nothing compared to the anxiety it will cost us if we let her race in that kind of weather. The safety of the children should be top priority.”

All is not lost, according to Borlain, because there is still another triathlon event coming up in October. Her daughters Tara and Samantha are already looking forward to the race.

The triathlon is slated on October 20 and will be held at the Palms Country Club, Alabang.  Children or parents who want to know more about the clinics or register for the triathlon race should check out the Alaska IronKids Philippines website at .

A Rainy Run Rio Run: Safeguard - 2XU Sole Racing Leg 2

Back in April, Runrio with Safeguard and 2XU organized the first leg of Sole Racing. On August 18, the second leg was held in SM Mall of Asia. Once again, I am honored to be invited to join the run event and to run alongside running celebrities, Ironman triathletes and some recreational runners. This newest addition to the Runrio series will have the next 21k leg at Nuvali on October 23 to be followed by a 50km ultramarathon on December 15. More details can be found in the runrio website.

Pre Race

I was pretty consistent in my training with maintenance runs and long runs. Last week, I ran about 25kms from CCP to Aseana City. But my original plan was to run more than 30kms which I failed to do so as I ran out of fuel with not enough carbo loading and no food during the run. But I forgave myself from missing a few miles and promised my vengence the next week. Luckily, I was invited to join this run so revenge was surely on its way. My 10km run turned to an official 21k without any excuses (since this is an official running event). I attribute this feat (At tuloy na tuloy ang bawi ko sa long runs!) to Coach Rio, Mommy Vimz and the rest of the Run Rio team.

Actual Race

I woke up an hour early learning my lesson from that RU1 experience of being late to a gun start. I also decided to ride a taxi which resulted from me being just in time for gun start. I arrived 3 mins before gun start, not enough time for a decent warm up so I used the first mile as warm up instead.

The night before the race, I was pondering whether to aim for a time or just test out my strategy for RUPM. As I was looking for a ride to the venue, I just wanted to finish without any time in mind and test out my RUPM strategy. I wanted to do 4-1 galloway for the first 10 miles and do magic mile until the finish line. I forego part of that plan to warm up. It was fitting as this intimate race had a lot of participants aiming for time so the slow crowd is minimal compared to other races.

a wet runner at MoA

At the 4th to 8th kilometer, the rain fell hard. I was in the route to CCP and Roxas Boulevard, then. We could see the big waves hitting the bay walk walls and felt the cold winds of a tropical depression, in addition we were soaked with rain making it a more challenging to run. I was soaking wet but I continued to do 4-1 galloway. The cooler environment was fun to run in but definitely more difficult. On our way back to the MOA area, my wet shoes started to take a toll on my foot strike as my wet socks made my foot fit differently to my shoes making it painful to strike with my right foot. I dismissed the pain on the way to Aseana City but on the way to the last u-turn, I couldn't ignore it any longer. I had to make additional stops to try wiggle my toes so my foot would  fit better in my shoes. It went away momentarily but it kept coming back. It was also around this time that I transitioned from 4-1 galloway to a magic mile run. I was doing it slower than I did on my previous training runs due to the pains I was experiencing. I also had to do more stops but I continued running. As this was almost the same route I ran the week before I found that I could control my pace better, especially to the last kilometer to the finish line. I made a mental note to try out the RUPM course sometime soon.

Ayaw kong tumingin sa camera
 running pose...

I finished at around 2:30. Then, I met some blogger friends on my way to claiming hydration and bananas to fuel me post run.

Post Race

After getting out of my wet running clothes, we made our way to the activity area to watch the raffle draws. Luckily, my number was called and I came home with a new Timex watch, which came just in time to replace the one that was broken after a battery replacement accident.


Then, my blogger friends and I went to a fastfood restaurant, had breakfast and bond.

Race Review

Just like the first leg, Safeguard/2XU Sole Racing was a great race. The hydration was more than enough. I had to tell the hydration folks repeatedly to not fill my tumbler with water or gatorade too much. The gatorade and water was cool and refreshing despite the challenges of the run. The race route was  mostly flat which was great for constant paces.

Post Run Breakfast with blogger friends

The race loot bag was great. I love my new Runrio visor. The water bottle was better in the first leg. I think the leg 2 water bottle is better with gym workouts and not long runs. I used my leg 1 water bottle in the race as the new one was too fat. It was great that this time they weren't so strict with the water bottles like in the first leg. The activity area was great. They had an instagram photo printing booth instead of a photo booth, which was sad for someone who can't have an instagram account (Damn, Blackberry!) Despite the unforseen "storm", the race was a fun experience and organized well.

Congratulations to all the runners who finished and brave the rains to reach the finish line!

Thanks to Runrio, Safeguard and 2XU for this memorable race.

Press Release


PHILIPPINES, AUGUST 2013—A new range of Nike apparel products assist the body’s natural ability to regulate temperature when running in a variety of conditions. The innovations are informed by Nike’s "Nature Amplified" design ethos — an approach focused on the body in motion and fueled by scientific data and athlete insights — to keep runners comfortable, protected and focused on performing at their best.

Nike designers and engineers worked with scientists in the world-class Nike Sport Research Lab (NSRL), and with members of Nike’s Advanced Innovation Team, to gain valuable information about how the body behaves in motion and responds to materials of varying weight, composition and thermal properties.

Nike’s popular Dri-FIT technology is proven to keep athletes dry and comfortable by moving sweat away from the skin to a garment’s outer layer. Now, Dri-FIT expands into new fabrications and apparel designs to serve performance, fit and comfort needs in a variety of conditions.

“Nike designers focus on solving problems to enhance athlete performance. We know that athletes want to maintain an ideal body temperature. They want quick-drying apparel and they want their clothing to move with them,” says VP of Design John Hoke. “Dri-FIT Knit, Dri-FIT Touch and Dri-FIT Wool answer these needs.”

Nike Dri-FIT Knit is an ultra-soft, lightweight fabric incorporating visibly different knit patterns to provide stretch and optimal cooling benefits. An open texture on the sides of garments promotes breathability in key sweat zones, and seamless construction ensures a smooth fit free of distraction.

The Nike Dri-FIT Knit is now available at Nike Park The Fort.

Second-skin fit and flexible sole deliver smooth, supportive ride for runners

PHILIPPINES, AUGUST 2013—Runners can now reap the benefits of natural motion found in Nike Free and the supportive, second-skin fit of Nike Flyknit in a single shoe. The Nike Free Flyknit unites two of Nike’s most innovative and popular technologies to deliver barefoot-like flexibility and a compression fit that locks the foot in place.

The Nike Free Flyknit is designed to flex with the foot in motion. It is informed by Nike’s "Nature Amplified" design ethos — an approach fueled by scientific data and athlete insights. 

“Nike Free Flyknit is the ultimate expression of natural performance principles, combining a supportive, sock-like upper and a flexible midsole and outsole that move with the body,” says Sean McDowell, Creative Director for Nike Running. “The compression fit brings the foot closer to the sole for enhanced lockdown and propulsion.”


A new, more compressive NIke Flyknit construction in the shoe upper secures the runner’s foot to the shoe platform. The unique zoned performance mapping pattern of the Nike Flyknit upper is derived from insights on how pressure is exerted on the top of the foot. Nike Sport Research Lab scientists employed pressure-mapping technology to locate stress areas, and designers used the data to inform the new upper. Zones on the top of the foot have engineered stretch built to enable natural flex, while a tighter weave at the perimeter stabilizes the forefoot and heel. Additionally, elasticized construction fits securely around the ankle for a comfortable, secure fit. By knitting a one-piece upper, Nike Flyknit construction reduces Nike's typical upper waste by an average of 88 percent. 


The advanced Nike Flyknit upper sits atop a Nike Free+ 5.0 midsole, which lies in the middle of the Nike Free spectrum, providing mid-range cushioning. (On a scale or 1-10, 1 is akin to running barefoot and 10 is comparable to a traditional running shoe.) The articulated Nike Free sole is flexible and moves naturally with the foot. Diagonal hot-knifed sipes (strategically-engineered flex grooves) through the arch help ensure natural movement in the mid-foot as a runner transitions stride.

The Nike Free Flyknit comes on the heels of decades of biomechanics research and design exploration with the intent of providing the best run possible. The breakthrough combination of a compressive Nike Flyknit upper with a highly flexible Nike Free midsole and outsole adds up to a running shoe that delivers a more natural ride, amplifying athletes’ ability to move quickly and comfortably over distance.

The Nike Free Flyknit is available at select Nike Stores beginning Aug. 1.

Four new innovations are designed to enhance the running experience

NIKE, Inc., the world’s leading running brand, today unveiled four new innovations at an event at the company’s global headquarters in Beaverton, Ore. The new products are designed to enhance runners’ natural abilities and were guided by Nike’s "Nature Amplified" design ethos, an approach that is focused on designing for the body in motion and fueled by scientific data and athlete insights. Two new running shoes were introduced  — the Nike Free Flyknit and Nike Free Hyperfeel — along with two new apparel technologies, Aeroloft and Dri-FIT Knit.

“Innovation is not about creating for its own sake, it's about creating something better, designing with a purpose. Running is the heart and soul of Nike and it’s the birthplace of a constant stream of new innovations that will drive the company forward,” said Mark Parker, President & CEO of NIKE, Inc.


·         The Nike Free Flyknit is the fusion of two of Nike’s most iconic footwear technologies — the compressive Nike Flyknit upper and the flexible Nike Free outsole. The Nike Free Flyknit upper features zoned performance mapping and a second-skin fit. The shoe provides the benefits of natural motion and a snug, supportive fit in a single shoe.

·         Designed to feel like an extension of the body by minimizing layers between the foot and the ground, the Nike Free Hyperfeel delivers a natural motion sensation for the runner. A drop-in insole made from Lunarlon foam allows the foot to have direct contact with Lunarlon cushioning. The ultra-thin waffle outsole uses strategically placed waffle pistons for grip and feel, allowing the foot to get closer to the ground.


·         Nike Aeroloft technology also debuted in the ultra-light Nike Aeroloft 800 Vest, designed to keep runners warm and comfortable in cooler conditions. Insulating down has been combined with precision ventilation that allows heat to escape the body so athletes stay dry. 

·         Dri-FIT Knit is an ultra-soft, lightweight fabric engineered to help athletes maintain optimal performance temperature in a variety of conditions. The technology employs visibly different knit patterns to aid breathability, while seamless construction ensures a smooth fit free of distraction.

“Nature Amplified means designing for bodies in motion and creating incredible new products that work intuitively with the human body,” said Trevor Edwards, NIKE Brand President. “The footwear and apparel we’ve unveiled today is based on insights from athletes and runners at every level, combined with extensive research in our Sport Research Lab. These innovations are data-driven, but body-led."
