Grace to Finish - A Sweet Race around Cuenca Park

Ayala Alabang Village, the most sought-after residential subdivision in the Metro South because of it's prime location, first-class facilities, easy accessibility to the business districts of Muntinlupa, Makati, Pasay and Pasig and it's great reputation even after 30 years of its existence. Having the upper class people as its residents, this place has become a status symbol of the rich and the famous. It has an area of approximately 700 hectares, this sprawling subdivision is located in Barangay Ayala Alabang, Muntinlupa City bordered by (Las Piňas City, Paraňaque City, and Bacoor, Cavite). It is connected by a network of 70 kilometers of concrete roads. It is, by far, bigger than all the primary subdivisions in Makati City put together, and in this place also lies Cuenca Park.

I remembered the time I was around Ayala Alabang Village when we were shooting for the Audio-Visual Presentation of the MultiSport 101 Event Series, I had a chance to come across Cuenca Park. The park is so beautiful! with all the richness of nature abound. The huge shady trees, green grass and the recreational facilities like the playground is perfect for families who wants to have a natural outdoor experience. Who would have thought that in the heart of this prime residential village, there is this park that captures the tranquility of nature? Impressive!

So, you want to see it for yourself right? But why just see if you can experience running the route?

My Sweet Visit To Eat Pray Run, A Store For A Cause!

Last Monday, I was able to check my Facebook page and I saw a post from EatPrayRun. I am used to people posting on my page (The Sweet Life Runner) promoting runs and merchandise and I allow them to do so, but this one caught my attention since I've already heard and seen it from Kuya Zaldy.

I checked out the video posted and I must say I am impressed with the advocacy. I won't tell much because it's better if you watch the video yourself.

I recommend that you turn up the volume and open in full screen so you can read it clearly.

Impressed? I bet you are! So after I watched the video I talked to the owner of the store who happens to be Mr. Francis Razon.

After a long chat with Francis over Facebook, I was more impressed with the product. So I told him I'm gonna pay a visit to his store so I could learn more and see the product personally. I booked myself to visit his shop on Wednesday, April 20th.

I am so excited to come. I asked my best bud, Marie to accompany me to my visit. 

So finally, I met the brainchild of EatPrayRun in person and I had a great time with him. I asked him tons of questions in which he was so accommodating to answer.
So, what's EatPrayRun all about?

EatPrayRun™ is a limited collectible running gear. It may come as a t-shirt, singlet, running shorts etc. etc.

The period for purchase of every EatPrayRun™ edition is limited only for 2 months.

30% of EatPrayRun™ ’s net profit from every edition is dedicated to charity hence the wishes.

When you buy EatPrayRun™ you’ll be asked to make two wishes. A personal wish & a charitable wish.

After the closing of our edition sales, EatPrayRun™ will choose and announce the wishers and the wishes that he will be granting.

The chosen wishers and the provision of the personal & charitable wishes will be featured in EatPrayRun™ ’s website, facebook page & EatPrayRun™TV (Youtube).

The number of the wishers that will be chosen will depend on the edition sales.

EatPrayRun™ intends to grant many wishes as possible.

What's the Mission?
  1. To provide market competitive & high quality running gears to runners.
  2. To promote running not just as a sport but also a means to make a difference.
  3. To be the first Filipino running apparel brand.
  4. To be the first running brand that strongly promotes Charity & Friendship, the true spirit of modern running.
    What are the products you have at the store?
    • For now, we have dri-fit shirts for running and cotton shirt for after run change. We plan to have other running products after the success of this one.

    Can I have mine customized?
    • Yes! You can put your name on the sleeve or on the left shoulder of the shirt for a customized look. It's also a great gift you can give to friends!

    Can you tell me more about the Shirts?

    Here's the photos I took from the EatPrayRun Store:

    The Men's Shirt on display

    The Women's Shirt on display

    Mr. Francis Razon with me and the Shirt

    Modeling for EatPrayRun? Nah! Just trying it out if it fits ^_^

    My thoughts on EatPrayRun:
    • I love the advocacy!
    • The marketing strategy is catchy.
    • The shirt material is good, especially the dri-fit.
    • The fit and the length of the shirt is perfect for me!
    • I am already XL so larger women would opt for the men's size.
    • It'll be nicer if the print is reflectorized.
    • The design is simple but attractive. Very unisex.
    • I've already road tested the Dri-Fit Shirt on my LSD Run of 19K in 2 hours 40 minutes and I must say it's comfortable for long runs!

    What's with the Stick Man and the Alien Eyes?
    • You mean the logo? Haha! I made it myself. I used "Paint" (The application in Microsoft) in creating that. My aim is just to make a simple design that's why I came up with it. The alien eyes you are referring to is not really alien eyes, it's a heart. But when I made my trial print out, it looked so girly so I decided to make it more separated, that's why it looked like that.

    So, besides this, what are your future plans?
    • Like you, I also want to support runs for a cause. So given that idea I want to create my own advocacy of running for a cause and to write a blog as well. Do you think "Hope Runner" is already taken?

    My visit at the EatPrayRun Store was a great experience. Thank you very much Mr. Francis Razon for sharing to me your advocacy and for the great hospitality you have shown during my visit. Oh, and also for the free Dri-fit shirt and the fulfilling dinner as well. It is much appreciated!

    A view from the back...

    I hope runners will support merchandises like this. It's not like getting another shirt for running, it's about making your wishes come true and helping out those who are in need all at the same time. Sweet isn't it?

    Good Vibes everyone and Sweet Running! ^_^

      Run For Japan - My First Sweet Marshaling Experience!

      March 11, 2011 - I was so busy preparing all the necessaries for my Boss' race in Clark for the weekend when suddenly my Internet connection drops. My office mate turned up the volume of the television and everyone stopped and watched. A huge tsunami hits Japan!

      What we have seen is so shocking that I even can't believe that it's actually true. It's like I am watching a movie. The huge wave of water swept the houses, building and cars like trash. There is even a CCTV video from an office in Japan that showed the huge shaking effect of the earthquake that intensely raged at 8.9 magnitude. Article from CNN HERE.

      After that incident, we closely monitored the happenings at our hotel room in Clark whenever we come back after the race. The damage was so huge that Japan has become an instant disaster. I also texted my friend who happens to have most of his relatives from there, and I am glad his family was safe.

      So, after that devastating tragedy there were lots of campaigns to provide relief for Japan. One morning while I was browsing Facebook, I saw the Greentennial Run page sporting a Run for Japan banner. When I clicked on it, I saw my logo on the center part. I was so pleasantly surprised!
       My Logo circled in Red, My Team Kamote Runners Family in Blue! ^_^

      I immediately contacted the organizers and I told them that I will support the advocacy, not because my logo is sported on it, but because of the reason why they do it. I am very much supportive of events, ordeals and advocacy that is made or has an objective for a cause. I also run because I have an advocacy as well.

      I told them, "I will not Run for Japan, I will volunteer as a Marshall at Run for Japan".

      Having that said, I went to the volunteer's orientation together with my Team Kamote Runners Family and we were assigned in different points on the race route. I was places at the 38th Street loop for the 10K runners.

      Because of too much excitement, I wasn't able to get a decent sleep. Adrenalin rush is so active. I just waited for Ate Lori to fetch me up so we can go to the venue. We arrived there at around 3am and we prepped up, had a light breakfast and a cup of coffee and were off to our posts.

      The weather is so forgiving! given the fact that the place we are in has no trees and no nothing to shade us from the sun. After around 20 minutes of the 10K gun start, we already saw the first lead runners approaching. I got so excited! I was shouting and cheering for them. I'm surprised to see a Kenyan on this race. I though they are all for the prize, but this guy has a huge heart for charity. Kudos to him!

      Then after, the huge wave of runners approaches. Me and Ate Lori gave them our sweetest greeting of "Good Morning". I also greeted them in Japanese! "Konnichiwa!" (Good Morning!) and the runners will respond "Ohayou Gozaimasu!" (Thank You Very Much!). ^_^

      I brought my point and shoot camera because I want to take pictures of my runner friends but I ended up being an instant photographer. Someone waved his hand, a signal that he wants his pictures taken. So I just took his photo and then everyone else started waiving! If you ran 10K on this race, you might wanna see if I caught you on cam. I posted it on my page HERE. Please forgive me for the shots, I know its not that good.

      After all the runners has crossed the loop, me, Ate Lori and Kuya Bee ran back to the starting/finish line. They got worried because I recently underwent surgery but I can't fight the feeling of envy seeing other runners run. So we ran 4K easy and I was dripping with sweat! Another proof that hydration therapy is now working since I am not really sweating that much during runs. It was the happiest 4K of my life! We were so loud and hyper we always jump whenever we see the photographers and we are dancing our way on the last few meters to the finish line!

      Here are some of the shots from the event:

      My Logo! So Proud! ^_^

      The TKR Logo! ^_^

      From Left: Kuya KB, Me, Mommy Eve in Purple hair, Ate Lori and Kuya Bee!

      My thoughts on Run For Japan event:
      • The race is well organized
      • Few but great Marshalls (ahem!)
      • Water stations are placed well
      • Pocari sweat hydration station was overflowing with supplies!
      • Traffic is a bit uncontrolled. Cars run side by side with the runners
      • Absence of road cones
      • Use of straws as loop strings is not a good idea. It's hard to separate and distribute!
      • Presence of Marching Bands at the finish line is a booster
      • Photographers are everywhere!
      • Presence of water shower was enjoyed by the runners
      • Runners who prepped up in costumes were highlighted and enjoyed by fellow runners
      • Cosplayers supported the event 

      They won because of my loud shout! lol! ^_^
      I super enjoyed this event and given that it's my first marshaling experience and it is for a good cause, everything was all worth it! To think that everyone has accumulated half a million pesos that will go straight to Japan Red Cross, I am so honored that I was a part of it. The "Bayanihan" spirit of the Filipinos still lives on! I am so proud!

      The famous "Bulalo Ba?" pose
      Special thanks to my Team Kamote Runners Family for rendering their unselfish support for this event. To the Greentennial Run peeps and to Sir Rovic Canono for trusting us to be the Marshalls. The sponsors of the event, for their big contribution for charity and most especially, to all the runners who supported this event, all of you are heroes!

      The running community has become runners for a good cause. I am happy that we are running on the right lane. I hope this spirit continues to ablaze so that we can say that we are not only running to take charge of our health or to have fun with friends, we are also running for a cause, for a reason, and for love of mankind!

      Team Panatag! ^_^

       Good Vibes and Sweet Running everyone! ^_^

      On Endings, Beginnings and Something Sweet To Look Forward To...

      Life is full of wonderful surprises, and sometimes, the surprise comes in a very different packaging...

      On Endings...

      I've been encountering some problems with my legs for a month now and I have been blaming my shoes for that. I was about to buy a new pair of shoes but something came up, my tooth, particularly the right molar started to feel pain and it is gradually intensifying.

      It ofcourse affected me in so many ways so I decided to finally have it removed. Honestly, I was so afraid but the pain won't go away and I am really determined to get out of it the soonest possible time. So I called my dentist up and set up an appointment with her early the next morning.

      You might ask why am I so afraid of tooth extraction? Well, I am diabetic, and given that condition everything else becomes complicated. There is a high probability that Diabetics do not survive this kind of procedure. You might wanna check out an article HERE.

      So the day came in. I was at her clinic. The pain is acting up again. She has no option but to remove the tooth since there is already a huge hole on the crown and she said the puss inside is causing the pain. She checked my pulse and my blood sugar and it's fine. She asked me that this procedure is very sensitive and we both should be ready for what might happen. I breath in and told her "I'm ready".

      She began the procedure. I tried to relax to the best of my ability. I am not afraid of her devices nor on the injections because I am used to that. I am afraid of what I know about tooth extraction complications in Diabetes. These are the times I wish I was ignorant.

      The first blow to get the tooth out was unsuccessful. That's where I got the most intense pain of my entire life. I was closing my fists and my toes were so cold. I am closing my eyes to reduce the pain. She cannot take the tooth out by mere extraction. I need to undergo a minor operation in an instant.

      She tried to loosen up the tooth by inserting a sharp apparatus inside. I was in intense pain already, then the anesthesia started to weaken down. My eyes are all teary. I cannot endure the pain anymore. I think I was about to faint. I went ballistic when I saw the blood spilling out from my mouth. I even overheard her telling her assistant that I might need blood transfusion for later because of the blood loss. When she saw my condition she immediately took another shot of anesthesia and this time, she injected more. It did reduce the pain, but it didn't took it all away.

      Her second attempt was a success. But the 1 1/2 hours of struggle on that procedure was very strenuous and  painful. Losing the tooth didn't take the pain away. I was still in pain for the last 4 hours after the successful operation.

      I went home feeling so weak and until now I am still recuperating from that intense experience. Yes I survived! A simple tooth extraction became an orthodontic operation because of my condition. I almost passed out because of excruciating pain. Anesthesia failed to do it's job. I thought it's gonna be my last day on earth but surprisingly, I woke up. Another miracle! Thank God for the gift of life!

      The dark portion is where the puss started to mold. I took it as a remembrance, 
      or maybe I'll save it for tooth fairy so she can grant me a wish?

      On Beginnings...

      If you can remember I said a while ago that I have problems with my legs? Yes it's true. After a series of tests the Doctors found out that I have Peripheral Arterial Disease.

      So what is that all about? According to Medline Plus Website, "Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) happens when there is a narrowing of the blood vessels outside of the heart. The cause of PAD is atherosclerosis. This happens when plaque, a substance made up of fat and cholesterol, builds up on the walls of the arteries that supply blood to the arms and legs. The plaque causes the arteries to narrow or become blocked. This can reduce or stop blood flow, usually to the legs, causing them to hurt or feel numb. If severe enough, blocked blood flow can cause tissue death. If this condition is left untreated, a foot or leg may need to be amputated."

      Have you notice I haven't wore anything that shows my lower legs? though I am wearing shorts I wear long socks? Why is that so? Well, This is the reason why...

      These are now scars. But before they were fresh deep wounds, and they are painful!

      Yes, I have been suffering with leg ulcers for five years now, and I've been keeping it a secret to everyone. Though three years ago the condition of my legs were so severe I even had it evaluated for amputation but I'm lucky enough that they have revived my nerves. But this time I think a different condition has began. This PAD thing that is happening to me right now is the reason why I had so much pain when I start to run my first five kilometers.

      I have been expecting this but still bad news is bad news. What the Doctor told me is that because of this condition, I won't be able to engage into a strenuous exercise anymore. And yes, running is included on his list of prohibitions...

      I don't know how to take this new challenge. A new beginning of something that I need to face. I am known as a hardheaded person and I always have my own decision on things. I will still try to run but I will have precautions this time, and ofcourse I'll seek second opinion. Maybe another Doctor can shed a spark of hope for me. I am keeping my faith. I know I can still run, and I should run!

      Something sweet to look forward to...

      I just had my Graduation Pictorial last Friday. It was least of what I have expected. I'm glad that my professor and my good friend Sanjie agreed to do my hair and make up for the pictorial since I freaked out when I saw a schoolmate who posted his grad pic on his facebook account and he looked so, ugh! All I know is that I don't wanna look like that on my picture.

      I have entrusted to him everything and he never failed me. His skills are so amazing! He can transform me into a human being in less than an hour!

      No photoshop editions made on this picture. I look so pretty here. I'm so happy! ^_^ 

      So after that beautiful transformation I waited for my turn at the photo shoot. It took around 3 hours waiting time and I am already pissed off. But what should I expect? Its a public school and there are lots of students waiting in line just like me. So I just maintained my patience and waited until it's my turn. So while waiting I just took some shots from my camera with some of my classmates who were same as me, patiently waiting for their turn.

      Here are some of the pictures from my camera:

      with my classmate, Shiela

      Behind the scene shot

      Just playing up!

      Last night, I had a chat with my good friend. It was short but sweet. She told me she's so thankful that she met me, and I made a huge impact on her life. I got teary-eyed. I remembered the moment when we almost lost our friendship. She was very special to me, and I am glad that in the end we still have each other.

      My graduation day is on April 30th and I am looking forward to it. I owe so much to my Uncle Jojo who funded most of my expenses at school. To my mentor, Mam Lot who's always there when I need guidance. To my significant other, Enrico who's always there to back me up. To my son Ethan for giving me all the inspiration that's why I made it this far and ofcourse, to my ever dearest mother, Connie for all the sacrifices she has done for me. I could never get this far without them and ofcourse, with God's never ending love.

      It is indeed true that when something ends, something new will begin. May the surprise be in a sweet or bitter packaging, the important thing is how we see and accept them. Take every hindrance as a challenge to push further. I will still run, and I will show them that it can be done, that it's possible against all odds. The love of the running community gives me the motivation that I can. As they say, you are only a failure if you stop trying. I may end up losing this battle, but I'll make sure I'll give it a good fight...

      The Sweet Life of a Graduating Girl!
      Good Vibes everyone and Sweet Running!

      Iberet Multisport 101 Swim Bike Run Sweet Event Series

      I am a fan of MultiSport Magazine even before I got into triathlon. Yes, I am training for triathlon together with the Philippine Diabetic Athletes Inc. but for now I am focused on swimming. I can't do cycling yet, I'm saving up for one, and it's kinda expensive. Anyway, I find the magazine very informative. Not to mention that it is for free. I never ever imagined that one day I will be a part of the company who makes the magazine that I love taking out at a sports store.

      I was employed last March 7, 2011 as a Marketing Assistant for Hinge Inquirer Publications, the magazine arm of the Philippine Daily Inquirer and the makers of MultiSport Magazine. It's really a dream come true for me. Even if I will just graduate on April 30, I already got a cool job. So, when I came in as a consultant, that's the time that they launched the project: The Iberet MultiSport 101 Swim Bike Run Event Series...
      I am so proud about this project since I am one of the persons who planned and worked on this. I hope you guys will take advantage of what MultiSport has for everyone. It's high time we take running to the next level, and try other great sports like swim and bike.

      I can guarantee that this event is worth your subscription. We got the best coaches in town. Here are some trivia about them:

      Here is our schedule for the 11 legs of the clinics...

      So, how can you be a part of this event? Check this out!

      Just an FYI, Coach Patrick Joson is my run and bike coach while Coach Anthony Lozada is my swim coach. Both of them are so professional and skilled, so kind and so patient on me despite my slow progress. Thanks Coach! Much appreciated!

      We also got lots of raffle prizes to be given away at the event from our sponsors: ASICS, SOLEUS, ADIDAS, SPEEDO, SOMA, TIMESTUDIO and many more! First 200 registrants gets a FREE LIMITED EDITION MULTISPORT CAP! The one I use during races!

      Something to watch out for: We will be posting the Audio-Visual Presentation of this event before the first leg, featuring Miko De Los Reyes (Runner), Andy Leuterio (Cyclist), Ginny Summerfield (Mountain Biker) and Debbie Yabut (Swimmer). I'm so excited!!!

      So what are you waiting for? Limited slots available. REGISTER NOW!

      Good Vibes everyone and Sweet Running! ^_^
