Dont Worry, Run Happy

I love the song "Dont worry be happy" by Bob marley. Night before my runs, I always make sure to put that song in my ipod playlist. I felt relaxed when I listen to his song while running.  I also felt that Im temporary away from my problems and anxieties.

Many friends had asked me, What makes running a exciting and addicting sports for me.

As all  we know, running is painful, tedious, and exhausting exercise. plus, you need to skip friday night gimmiks to have enough sleep for weekend race events. I think the hardest part is, you have to wake up early in the morning just to run.

So, why do so many people addicted it?

People run for obvious reasons like to increase performance, to release stress,to stay in shape,
and to reach an ideal body weight. But for others, there is a certain feeling that they are addicted to.

Most of runner says that euphoria or so-called "runner's high that comes after a run is what motivates them most, They have experienced a happy feeling during and after the race called endorphin rush .

Endorphins are natural hormones that your brain releases when it senses happiness. These endorphins give you a sense of happiness, satisfaction and well-being. It is released during long, continuous workouts, when the level of intensity is between moderate and high, and breathing is difficult. This also corresponds with the time that muscles use up their stored glycogen.

During a release of endorphins the person may be exposed to bodily harm from strenuous bodily functions after going past his or her body's physical limit. This means that runners can keep running despite pain, continuously surpassing what they once considered to be their limit.

On May 22, 2011 Let us release your Happy Hormone called Endorphins and join Brooks Run Happy!

Registration Fee:

Php 500.00 for 3K and 5K

Akyat Pinatubo Climb For A Cause

It was June 15, 1991 When Mt. Pinatubo eruption happens. I was only 9 years old then
and I remember the times when everyone in our neighborhood were busy removing ash falls
in their roof.  I was very happy that time because of one week class suspension. But, when I watched the news and saw what happened in barangays in Tarlac and Pampanga, I felt bad and
realized that it was a serious matter.

It was the second largest eruption of the 20th century. Mount Pinatubo Volcano had been dormant for 400 years.

The effect of erruption was very devastating and it destroyed Irrigation systems, water
service facilities, power transmission and lateral lines, roads bridges and other
infrastructures were damaged mainly by lahars while houses and public buildings
collapsed from the weight of accumulated ash deposits.
Those were the memories of  Mt.Pinatubo 10 years ago. I cant imagine how can they can recover from such disaster. But, Nothing is impossible with God.  The nature recovers itself and bring back its beauty.

After a decade, Mt. Pinatubo became one of the tourist spot in the Philippines. I dont want to miss the opportunity to witness the beauty of Mt. Pinatubo.

I already climbed 2 mountains this year (Pico de loro and Mt.Maculot) and Mt.Pinatubo would be my Third.

On May 28, 2011, There will be an event named Akyat Pinatubo" Blogger's climb for a Cause. Organized by Let’s Go Sago! Travel Club. The proceeds of the event will be go to Tahanang Walang Hagdanan.

Goldilocks Fun Run

For the most Filipinos, the Goldilocks fairytale has two versions: a golden-haired lass who encounters the three bears, and the bakeshop that has become an integral part of the Filipino way of life.

Now on its 45th year, Goldilocks remains that company and more. At the forefront of its industry, the company enjoys a substantial lead over competitors in all aspects of performance. National consumer surveys have consistently identified Goldilocks as the landslide winner in customer satisfaction indices such as Awareness Conversion (the ability to translate brand awareness to actual trial) and Share of Heart (the emotional approach to measuring preference).

Most Filipinos consider Goldilocks not only a brand, but also a Filipino Institution. In fact its popular tagline, “How thoughtful, how Goldilocks” has evolved over the years into “How thoughtful, how Pinoy (colloquial for ‘Filipino’)”, and later to “Ang sarap magmahal ng Pinoy!”, embracing a culture and tradition that goes beyond the name.

Through the years, Goldilocks has made significant contributions to the upliftment of the lives of Filipinos. With the company’s commitment to its continuing Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) efforts, the Goldilocks Fun Run will also be a fund-raising activity for the benefit of the Goldilocks Foundation and its F.E.E.D. (Feeding Program,Education, Environment, and Disaster Assistance) initiatives.

The Goldilocks Fun Run is sure to be a memorable event not only for running enthusiasts
but for the whole family. We hope to see you there, and here’s to a Goldi-Good run!

Sunday, April 3, 2011


When I was young,  I ran away from doctors when I saw them because I am afraid of injection.
But on May 1, 2011 ( Labor day ) at SM Mall of Asia, I will run with Doctors.

Being with the doctors outside the clinic and the hospital where they are just like everyone else is an occasion for fellowship and glee. Health assumes an equitable face: health as actually practiced in contrast to health as advised. The doctors may use the chance to compare with each other their levels of fitness; the public may want to see how they fare versus their doctors, or simply spend the time with them on a Sunday morning.

The number of doctors who have taken up running not only as a form of exercise but as a lifestyle has increased tremendously over the last several months. They have joined a bandwagon of Filipinos who now apply science in the activity. The health benefits of running come with the right pair of shoes, the fit of the clothes, the proper way for the feet to hit the ground, the appropriate pacing, and the adequacy of hydration. When doctors learn the science, expect them to do it quickly and with confidence.

Running gives a high that is good and healthy for both the doctors and their patients. On May 1, 2011, approximately 1,000 of the 5,000 doctors from all over the country who will be in Manila for the annual convention of the Philippine College of Physicians will spearhead the RUN WITH DOCTORS as a fund-raising activity. The doctors are inviting their patients and the public to join them at the SM Mall of Asia Complex. They may participate in the 3K, 5K and 10K categories.

Registration will be from March 24 - April 25, 2011. For inquiries, please call 703 – 1736 or 910-2252 – 54 or visit

The Tale of the 3 Marathons ( The Mango, The Dolphin, and The Bull )

Cebu International Marathon

TBR Dream Marathon 2011 was supposedly to be my first marathon, but Cebu International Marathon accidentally opens a window for me. When Wesley Oraña  got injured in Rizal Day Run, he asked me if
I want to replace him.  Since I was already booked in Cebu that time and registered to run for 21K category, I decided to give my racekit to other runner and take the shot to run my first marathon in Cebu.

I already build a good base of mileage last december and I am confident that I can finish the race.
Cebu International Marathon is a well organized event. They have sufficient hydration stations,
Sponges, Banana, First aid, and Cebuano Cheerers singing sinulog theme song.

I experienced difficulty in my  run  in Cebu because of the scortching hot and very humid weather.
Upon reaching KM32,  My energy began to deminished.  It was 9:30 in the morning but It feels like
I was running during 2:00 in the afternoon ( Now I know what it feels to be a danggit or dried mangoes).

I was able to cross the finish line at at 7:14:00 and I do not experience the emotional feeling
that most of the first timers oftenly said.  I realized a lot of things during the race and my trainings, LSDs, and all the friends who gave moral support to me flashes in my mind.

My hardwork paid off!


Condura Skyway Marathon

After a month. Condura Skyway Marathon comes very fast. Many of my runner friends were already registered. A week before the race, I saw the post of Aileen Piacos of Hungout Buddies selling her 42K racekit for a chep price of Php900. At first, I was very hesitant to join Condura Marathon because of its high registration fee.

During the race, I paced with Gary Chua is a marathon first timer. We did a 10:1 Galloway
at first few kilometers and then change our running plan. We decided to run during downhill and just
walk during the uphills. I really appreciate the cold weather during the race because of what I had experience in cebu.  The event is well organized like the previous Condura races.  The route is awesome, Its feels like I am Son Gokou running in the snake road in Dragon Ball Z.

Upon reaching the 21K turn around point, we are still doing good.  Not until,  Km32 when Gary Chua encounters knee pain. We walked for about 4Km  until we reached Ayala area.  It was in  Km40 when I asked him if we could sprint the remaining kilometer but he said that he cannot manage to run anymore. He told me to go ahead, so I ran as fast I can. It was a strong finish for me, I sprinted the last 100 meter stretch to the finish line. I finished at 6:18:00, 56 minutes faster than my cebu marathon.

After I got my medal, I joined the Team CB in the finish line. We wait for other team mates to finish the race and have our lunch at Chowking. That day I decided to join the team officially  and said
"Team CB ako".



TBR Dream Marathon

After a month again,  March 2011, The Bullrunner Dream Marathon is coming like a raging bull. The latter is the first marathon under my name and I have no reason to mess it up. But a lot of  things happens to me before the race. I was not able to attend the final long run of TBR Bull session because
I undergo tooth extraction and my dentist did not let me run for  a week.

I only have a total of 25Km run for the month of march. I have 0 mileage for 2 weeks before TBR Dream marathon. It seems that I am not excited or prepared for TBR marathon. Two days before the race, I attended the BDM Victory/TBR Send-off party of Team CB and we got home around 2:00 in the morning. The next day, I woke up late and felt a little hangover.

To compensate my sleep, I slept again afterlunch and woke up at 4pm. I met Jay Samson and Cousin Rose Marie in Mercury Drugs munoz and then we set off to Nuvali Sta rosa Laguna. Thanks God because of the breezy weather that night. Gary Chua and Mich de Ocampo were supposedly  my running buddies that night but something happens.  We started running as a group together with Team CB pacers Wesley and Rodel Argonout Cuaton. At the second drinking station, Coach Argo and I grabbed a cup for a while and then suddenly we lost them.

With Coach Rodel "Argonout" Cuaton
We saw our fellow TCB team mates Doc Art, Daie, and Bills and joined them. We are doing a 3:1 Galloway until we reached KM 10.  Coach Argo told me to go ahead if I wanted to break my personal record. I do not have GPS watch so it is hard for me to monitor my pace. So I asked him if he could pace me and he immedialy agreed.

So the show just get started. We ran a  8 min/km steady  pace and 5:1 Galloway.  Coach Argo asked my
10K and 32K PR and then Voila. He already conclude that I can finish the race by 5:30:00.  Upon reaching KM 19 we already overtaken our fellow TCB Gary Chua and Wesley Oraña .  

At the 21Km turn around point, I experienced a slight muscle cramps in my right calves. I popped a capsule of salt stick to reduce muscle cramp and It did. But, the sad part is that gave me a water retention because of the salt. I felt heavy (Bloated)  because I already loaded a lot of sports drinks. I try to pee a few times but I couldnt release any fluids.

KM 39 I encountered leg cramps again. We can not help but to stop in the nearest station to seek first aid. The medical assistant gave me a calf stretch and massage.  When Coach Argo saw his fellow pacer Earl and KB runner going near with us he said to the medic "Pwede na yan!". 

My pace began to drop and my legs muscles were already tired. My pacer said to me "Hindi na kaya ang 5:30 at malabo na tayo mag sub 6hrs". I replied "Ok lang coach" and he said " Hindi pwede yun! tara takbo!".

300 meters away the finish line, I already heard the music from the stage. I saw a lot of friends cheering me and taking pictures. The pain and the fatigue just went away like magic, I got excited and I already feel the second wind but I encountered a leg cramps again.  Beeps Santos was there and paced me for a  few meters.

When I saw the finish line and the time, I dont know what happened but my energy came back.
I sprinted all the way to the finish line having an adrenaline rush like Ultimate Warrior. It was a sweet victory for me placing ranking 136  over 313 finishers.

I will never forget the TBR Dream Marathon.  Even though, It is already my third marathon but
TBR Dream Marathon's aura makes me feel that it was my first. Everyone is emotional and
satisfied with the event. I feel the marathon drama somehow. :)

Special Thanks to Marvin Pangan, Athan Manas and Kat Orbista for the photos
amd Madelin Galvez  for some grammar correction.

It is impossible for me to finish the three marathons without the encouragement, advices, and support  of my running groups.

What is AACE-PC?

The American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists-Philippine Chapter (AACE-PC) is a professional organization of physicians specializing in the art and practice of endocrinology.

The AACE-Philippine Chapter was established in 2006, as the third international chapter of AACE and the FIRST in Southeast Asia.Members of AACE-Philippine Chapter devote a significant part of their career to the evaluation, treatment and management of patients with endocrine diseases. They are recognized clinicians, educators, writers and researchers, many of whom are affiliated with medical schools and universities; and community leaders who are pillars of endocrinology in their home turf.

What is endocrine system?

The endocrine system is made up of glands throughout the body which regulate the function, growth and development of tissues and organs by releasing chemicals called hormones directly into the bloodstream. Endocrine disorders develop when a malfunctioning gland secretes either too much or too little of a hormone due to illness, surgical removal or natural causes.

Who are Clinical endocrinologists?
