My Human Race

On 8/31/08, I already planned to run on Calauit Island for my 10k Nike Human Race. One good thing about the Nike Sports band is that it is light and you can wear it like a watch. I own a Garmin 305 and a Nike Plus iPod Kit but I find the Nike Sportsband to be traveller friendly.

The Nike Human Race 10k — Represent the Philippines and Join a Million Runners for a worldwide 10 Kilometers run on August 31, 2008, Sunday!
I love Nike+ ever since it motivated me to run my first 42k Marathon. One of the things I love about it is that I can join any race virtually as long as I have my Nike+ to record my runs.

Rogin-E Update: Progressing Slowly


It is very hard for me to provide an update on the Rogin-E challenge because I’m progressing slowly. … That is a significant personal achievement for me because after 5 years, I am going back to the gym again. … This gives me a motivation to continue with my goal even without this Rogin E challenge.

This is a major development backbone in the Central Luzon Area that connects Subic Freeport and Special Economic Zone and the Clark Special Economic Zone, and the Central Techno Park in Tarlac.

No More Excuses…


Rogin E Blogger Challenge Update: I’m already tired of making excuses to myself on why I’m still far away from my 6-pack abs goal in 2008. My strategy is to do it the right way with a determined mindset, regular workout and eating the right kind of food. … I can start to feel the impact of Rogin E because it is giving me the energy to survive my hectic schedule nowadays.
