Christmas Wish list 2014

I just started my christmas shopping so I might as well share my wish list so my friends and family will give something useful for me... hehehe

And my wishlist includes:
  1. Power Ranger Shirt (Size: Small to Medium)
  2. Black Chinos Straight Cut (No to loose or slim fit... I hate the new clothes line's design... I have legs, designers and I am aiming to eventually make them bigger aka YES to leg day)
  3. Polos or Long Sleeve Shirts (I have enough but more variety wouldn't hurt)
  4. Wrist wraps
  5. Hand Wraps (Wag Red... Meron na ako nuon.. Wag din pink... Ang weird lang!)
  6. Body Spray (Para I could use more kapag cologne kasi tipid... No particular scent pero useful kapag panlalaki.. hahaha)

Generally, Food and other useful items are greatly appreciated, as well. I'll be (eeehh) appreciative of running stuff too but I am not active as I was compared to the last 3 years so those won't probably be put to use unless it can be used in the gym, as well.

Lastly, Gifts to Prok are different from my gifts. Put one item for me and one item from Prok in your list. (hehehe) Although Prok may be the grinch, he still likes them gifts. Here is his wish list:
  1. Dog Toys (Stuffed Animals with no small buttons or anything that can cause him to choke on that thing; Squeeky Toys, Tug of War Toys as he destroyed one of these kind of toys already)
  2. Dog Treats (He likes veggies. He'll eat a veggie flavored bone over a beef flavored one. Suggestions: Pedigree Dental Stix, Chlorophyll Flavored Bone) 
  3. Dog Food (Eukanuba or Vitality for puppies only)
  4. Dog Clothes (He has a 11" neck, 16" chest and 16" long. His sizes are usually medium but small in some stores like Arf Arf Love)
  5. Dog Shampoo (He stinks)

adidas’ Dennis Kimetto Uses the Energy Return of BOOST™ to Run the Fastest Marathon of All-Time

Press Release

MANILA, Philippines - adidas’ Dennis Kimetto ran the fastest marathon in history wearing adidas BOOST™ at the 2014 Berlin Marathon.  With a time of 2:02:57 Kimetto shattered the previous world record by an astounding 26 seconds wearing the super lightweight adizero Adios BOOST.

“Dennis’ world record breaking performance while wearing adidas BOOST demonstrates the result of elite athletes using industry leading innovation to achieve unprecedented feats,” said Adrian Leek General Manager of adidas Running. “We continue to push boundaries by working closely with our athletes to develop the best products running has to offer.”

adidas BOOST was also on the feet of second place men’s finisher Emmanuel Muthai who joined Kimetto in breaking the previous world record. The top two female finishers Tirfi Tsegaye and Fayse Tadese were also wearing Adios BOOST as they triumphantly crossed the finish line in Berlin to provide adidas with a dominating presence at the podium.

The results in Berlin contribute to a long line of success for Adios BOOST following its introduction last year including former world record holder Wilson Kipsang running a course record at the 2014 Virgin Money London Marathon.

The adidas adizero Adios BOOST shoe has an MSRP of Php7995 and is available at leading adidas and Runnr stores in the Philippines. Featuring hand crafted design, by legendary adizero pioneer Mr.Omori, the adidas adizero Adios BOOST incorporates five key benefits to deliver more speed than ever before:

  1. BOOST ™ technology – provides a higher Energy Return than any other foam cushioning material in the running industry.
  2. Microfit upper – a breathable, contoured mesh that makes each movement natural
  3. Continental Rubber™ outsole – a high performance rubber outsole that grips the ground for better traction and a powerful push-off.
  4. Torsion system – delivers optimum transition and stability
  5. adiwear material – for ultimate durability

Three tunnels, three musical genres, and 12,422 thousand people running to the beats of the top DJs in the metro– last October 26, at the Mall of Asia grounds Rexona brought the music powered run to the next level in Run To Your Beat 2.

Taking Rexona’s Do More philosophy to the next level, Rexona Run To Your Beat 2014 challenged runners’ limits through music, while also keeping runners fresh. Mar Corazo, Rexona Brand Manager, says, “It was an amazing run, and I truly believe that music does push all of our runners to beat their personal bests.”

Collaborating with Universe and the top DJs in the Philippines, from the first gun start at 3:00 AM to the finale runners hit the pavement entertained by visual and auditory experiences, and music zones that featured live DJ performances, lights, and three themed tunnels.

Deuce Manila kicked off all categories at the gun start. 5k and 10k runners went through the Retro and Hip Hop tunnels with DJ Euric and Motherbasss accompanied by MC Pao respectively. The tunnels featured roller bladders, disco balls, street art and laser lights. 21k runners experienced all three tunnels, which included the EDM tunnel with Martin Pulgar.

Personal: Things I should be looking for in my next job.

As of now, I decided that I shall go through with the project I just transferred to. I could go on and on about the things that are not comfortable about this job and this responsibility but I am already here. I might as well, get it over with.

Time goes by fast anyway and the challenges will be interesting so better just enjoy the journey.

But after this one, I am almost sure to move on to another job. This new job should be or should have:

1. A salary higher than my current salary or salary greater than my last job. It should only make sense that I get more.

2. A work schedule from 9 to 6 or midshift. Night shift is a big no-no and It was the major decision maker to leaving my 6 year stint at my previous company. If the office says that night shift might happen. I will have to say no.

3. The office should be in Makati City so the job ad should more or less say "Willing to work in Makati". Working outside of Makati is a mistake. I have to travel long hours that I could have been using to do other stuff or take care of other things. Working in Makati has allowed me to go to the gym. My home is of close proximity to Makati so heading home is at most an hour away.

For the work, I really don't care. It doesn't matter if I maintain the title or degrade to being a programmer as long as these 3 conditions are met.

In the meantime, please wish me luck.

Titan Games

The Titan Games is the Philippine's First National Strongman Competition, a multifaceted fitness event that combines physical challenges with a time element. This event is made for every FILIPINO who want to change their lives for the better, through fitness and  health. The Titan Games seek to build TITANS – iron-willed individuals with a strong in mind and body.

This year, Titans will clash in the concrete jungle. Witness steel, wood, and rubber crash against each other as 6 winning individuals take all in this 2 division challenge. On November 09 2014 at The Camp, Taguig, this whole-day event will feature challenges, mini-challenges, and a spectator-friendly event every person can enjoy.

The Titan Games wants every Filipino. We want a Fitter Philippines. But we also want our participants and spectators to have an awesome experience. So we’ve made 2 divisions that are as far apart in difficulty as you can imagine - a beginner's level, Novice division for the everyday person, and a difficult Advanced division for the serious athlete.

          This is for the EVERY man and the EVERY woman. This is for those who occasionally exercise, the sports enthusiast, the casual (insert sport here). Whether you play hoops with your friends on the weekend, stretch out and find your center every morning, love bicep curls and dancing, or a walk-a-thon junkie posing as a hardcore commuter, this is YOUR event.

          An immovable object. An unstoppable force. Many are strong but only a few can be called TITANS. This division will reveal who are worthy of that title. If you’re part of your country’s elite fighting force, an athlete that has been training since Day 001 on Earth, a gym junkie who does not exercise but trains, or want to challenge your human limitations, then we invite you to clash against other TITANS.

CHALLENGES will be FOR TIME,  to finish the required movements  while following the scoring standards in the shortest time possible. There will be 4 main challenges with 5 minute time caps, where all participants can compete. Each challenge has a unique name connoting to the tasks to be accomplished. Only the Top 5 strongest Males and Females in each division will make it to the 5th Challenge, the Clash of the Titans! Winner will be the one with the shortest total time of all 5 challenges!

1st, 2nd, and 3rd place will be awarded to each top male and female competitor in each division. Prizes from GNC, BeyondRaw, Fit Miss, Ensayo Gym Equipment, Gatorade, Quest Bar, Fitaid, Battle Brew, Progenex, Goat Tape, Brofit and WOD Nation are up for grabs! The advanced division male and female champions will be awarded the 2014 Titan Games - Titan, and they will become GNC's BeyondRaw and Fit Miss next brand ambassadors!
