TBR Dream Marathon 2018: Week 12

December 24, 2017

It’s so goooood to be back! Apologies to my avid readers who constantly check on updates on fitness-related goodies and gym reviews. I have been quite busy training for this full marathon, so as you know, I haven’t been writing recently. Again, pardon my blogging hiatus.  All right! Let’s get on with the good stuff now, shall we? In exactly 8 weeks, I’ll finally be able to check this one off…


TBR Dream Marathon 2018: Week 4

October 28, 2017

Good morning Philippines! It’s been 3 weeks since my last post and boy I can’t tell you how phenomenal training has been! The weather wasn’t very cooperative, one day your skin gets burned, one day huge blocks of rainwater pierce through your scalp. I initially thought there’s no way I could train if this keeps on. Well, that ship has sailed. Thanks to Anytime Fitness Shaw, I could do some…


TBR Dream Marathon 2018: Week 1

October 8, 2017

It has been quite a busy week for me work-wise since I’ve changed my job description (from operations to sales), though I still work with the same spectacular company (I just love Sun Life). What I did was a tough decision for me but it appears to be best one nonetheless. That being said, we can’t ignore the fact that the Dream Marathon is still happening regardless of my adulthood crisis!…


TBR Dream Marathon 2018: The Journey Begins

September 21, 2017

And here we are! Just a few weeks ago, I registered for the 2018 TBR Dream Marathon that will be held in Nuvali, Laguna. Luckily enough, I was chosen to participate in the most anticipated marathon for first-timers (and second-timers).  Just to give you a background on my running portfolio: the first fun-run I joined was the G.O.O.D. run in 2011 (I think), the longest run was 16K (FrancisM Run) and I…


A quick interview with Jaymie Pizarro

June 19, 2017

A few days ago I’ve had the pleasure of interviewing “The Bull Runner” herself Jaymie Pizarro, about running and life in general. In this quick interview, I had hoped to address typical “newbie” questions and debunk common misconceptions about running.    1. People who are aspiring runners are afraid to try the sport because they fear they might injure their knees in the process. What’s your response to this? I…

How Muay Thai made me quit smoking

February 17, 2017

It was a gloomy Saturday afternoon when I was eating my pre-workout meal. I loved the aroma of the spicy pancit (canton) with a touch of sweetness that is perfect with fried eggs coupled with a strong black coffee. Just right for a robust, tenacious boy that is me. Kidding aside, I was just an average work-out-twice-a-week corporate employee who also loved outdoor activities. It was my rest day from a week-long excruciating graveyard shift that most of…


What is the Gym Review section about?

The Gym Review category on my blog is about my personal experience on a particular gym that offers non-contact or full-contact sports training. Ex: boxing, Muay Thai, circuit training, cross-fit, etc.  In this section, I highlight the gym’s location, place, price and promos (if any), my experience, my opinion on the value that I received from their service and my recommendation based on the whole experience.  I also take photos…
