Stepping up and running further

This run is a challenge to myself to step up from 12K and step closer to my goal of finishing a marathon. I believe that I don't tire easily and that I can run long distances. This was further reinforced during my first 12K runs. Before, I just used to run towards the finish line and still make good ... Read More

Hahaha. Chill sa siguro ta oi. Unya mag training na kog tarong.

Ayaw kalimot ugma tol.

Of the 1100+ 21k runners of yesterday’s Milo run in Cebu, 850+ finished within the cut-off time. That's about 77%, meaning only 23% did not reached the cut-off. At 2:35 cut-off, then it comes close to the flat 20% who did not reached the cut-off.

Imagine that, 900 people ran a very fast half-marathon yesterday. I wonder, what's the data in the past years. I wonder, what will be next years? 1,500??? Bring it on!

Never pace someone who runs faster than your pace .. or else ..

I have been inviting a fraternity brother of mine for quite some time to run an official event no matter what distance it is. I've run with him and saw that he is more than capable of running up to a half-mary. At last maybe he bit the bait this time. But there's a catch. He'll run it if i pace him. ... Read More

It's a 'lil bit tricky to run on KAI especially if you're still a newbie(just like me). Blisters might be a sign of improper foot landing,over-striding,or too-tight tying. It's still possible to run on KAI with less slapping sound though. Just need the right running form(I'm still practicing it). But overall, I have much fun running in KAI sandals than in shoes.

Good job mate! Keep Running on KAI. Hehehe.

Here's an example of a famous and very fast Huarache Runner. I really like his running style...


Koyomi Araragi (@bujoc) September 24, 2013, 4:41am

thanks for the advise @john .. wow pat really does have a nice style. i can only do some stretches where my heel never lands but maybe soon. one thing i cant do is have a stride as full as what pat and other runners have. i have a knee ligament injury (acl or mcl) and that has stopped me form even trying a full stride. so now on kai i try the short but fast ones. a little more tiring than the usual.

its my first time to have that blister near the strap. i think its because of the faster than usual pace that i had to maintain during this run. but yes i hope to improve it as i rack up some more miles on these kais. thanks again john.

Rose Buenconsejo (@owrange) September 24, 2013, 3:43pm

aguy. i can sense! careful2x @giovanniruiz1925 coz u might end up in some longerrr distance =)

Soybitz Rebojo (@vissueloreobojo) September 24, 2013, 4:41pm

wooott.... bro Koyomi it may help if you'll apply Petroleum Jelly. Or change the strap into shoelace. :)
Congrats bro and to your brother! ^_^

Koyomi Araragi (@bujoc) September 24, 2013, 6:18pm

tnx @vissueloreobojo ! yep tig-gamit ko petroleum jelly but dili sa straps dapit. but after this race i learned i need to apply in those areas also specially for longer distances. learning stage pa ko on kai so still weighing what works and what doesnt. so salamat kaau for the advise from certified kai runners.. soon i-personalize nya ni nako.

Science and Running a Pre-race Story

When we run, our pace and endurance are influence with lots of things from physiological to psychological factors. During an intense exercise such as sprinting the demand for energy increases, glucose is then broken down and oxidized to pyruvate, and lactic acid is produced from the pyruvate faster t ...

Meanwhile, organizers of the Cebu qualifying race for the 37th Milo national marathon have extended their registration for the Sept. 22 race until Friday.

The race will start and end at the Cebu City Sports Center and is expected to have 25,000 runners.

Organizer Ricky Ballesteros said the race features the men’s and women’s 21K, 10K, 5K and 3K divisions, with the 3K and 5K already sold out.

“The 21K and 10K slots are still open but there are only 100 slots,” said Ballesteros.

One of the sidelights of the race is a cheer dance competition for elementary, secondary and t

ertiary levels.

Ballesteros added that they will still be using the same race route as last year.


The route map is very misleading... It says, the second turning point of 21k is near Cafe Alde but that is not Cafe Alde but that is near Leonas. Cafe Alde is somewhere near mabolo church. Pls. clarify this. Thanks.

Rose Buenconsejo (@owrange) September 21, 2013, 11:43am

@Junry last year, it was up to cafe alde.

malapit na mga kalaro ko sa 21k -----21years ngayon pa ako nakabaik sa pagtakbo my last entry is 20K Magnolla International marathon Quirino Grandstand M.M.

Edge Ramas (@edgenike) August 11, 2013, 2:48pm

agree with this one. dali ra bitaw na mahurot ang 21K... Last year, I only ran 5K coz wala ko practice at that time coz I was in Manila for more than one month before the run...

thank you @runfest . called CCSC earlier and said it's okay to bring the small sachets, provided that it accumulates to at least 300grams

. Interested participants are required to pay a non-refundable entry fee plus
one (1) MILO® 300g empty pack alongside the accomplished and signed
official registration form. @twinkle047

do you guys know unsa nga mga milo sachet sizes kailangan ihatag upon registration? para maandaman na. thanks

ok kaayo kay firsttlme pako makadagan diha sa cebu city hehehehe

also, guys, lahi ang quality sa singlet sa 3/5k ug 10/21k. the singlet quality last year was very nice sa 10/21k =)

oopppsss. sorry, that was last year. they increased na diay this year. @twinkle047 bytheway, previous years, they require runners to bring empty packets of milo upon registration. so start saving your milo packets. =)

uhm P100 lage sa 5k? and P75 for students...

milo is not really strict on implementing it. =) but for those in 5k/3k category, which reg fee is only P50, we somehow owe Milo to wear the singlet -- it's marketing after all =)

@edgenike - hi Sir, this is posted from Milo site, mao man ilang rule. And this is implemented man pod dugay na. :)

hmmm kailangan pa jud magsuot sa Milo singlet? I think dili necessary mag suot og Milo singlet but racebib hinuon is a must.
