Get Ready to Run in Color for a Mission This November

Color Runs or a fun run wherein runners were sprinkled with color powder after the race are now popular nowadays. Different types of this run were conducted more than thrice a year by different race organizers. Which among these color runs have you already joined? Well, if you ask Runner Rocky, I've already joined twice. First was last year in a night race  held in Filinvest Alabang while the second one was last June 12, 2016 in the Colors of Freedom Run!  

This November 2016, get ready for another color run. But this time, it will be held in Guagua, Pampanga and it is a color run for a certain mission!

Orani: The Untold 'Love' and Run Story

Unstoppable rain, floods, traffic, and storm warning signals... these are the things that threatened the Orani Half-Marathon 2016. Because of these occurrences, runners like yours truly thought twice not pursuing the run in Bataan. And yes because of these, my mother wasn't anymore allowed me to go to Bataan. Runner Rocky's supposed to be first half-marathon in Orani, Bataan was not anymore pursued!

But my running group, the Team Run Direction took the courage to surpass the storm. With their determination to run and to help, they were able to successfully surpassed the challenges of a rainy Saturday morning. And one of my friends and teammates Ms. Raegina Atienza Galera or mom Rej (for short) shared her inspiring story in this event.

The Moments We had Together as One...

The Group Enjoyed a Happy Lunch with "Alimango" and "Binurong Kanin!"

Mom Rej is known to be a "Trail Race Queen" because most of her runs were mainly in the trails and in the mountains. And did you know that this Orani Half-Marathon 2016 was her first half-marathon?! That was a big wow for her taking the courage to run in the rain in a running event outside the Metro! And this run even made her believe that there's forever! :) Let's find out why. Here is her story:

My First Half-Marathon
By: Raegina 'Mom Rej' Atienza Galera 

Thunderstorm since Monday until Saturday, I can't hide the feelings I am worried and anxious if the event will push through or not. I kept on praying to give us fine weather on Sunday.

With heavy rains and thunderstorm we travelled from Manila to Orani, Bataan. Nothing will stop me to run in my first ever 21K marathon. 

At last we arrived in Orani safely. It was awesome and we felt right that moment  the warmed welcome of Orani runners. Since it was cold we need to get warmed, we headed to the small carinderia and ate the yummy Batangas Goto and Lomi Special  and to our surprised the Orani Team prepared a delicious  lunch for us alimango and the binurong kanin - maximum carboloading. 

After our lunch we headed to Vista Verde where we made our reservation. We prepared ourselves for the next activity the Lapis at Papel Project of Teacher Amz Albano in cooperation with Team Run Direction. It was successful, we were expecting it will be around 10-20 kids but it turned out a total of 35 kids. All were given foods, singlets and freebies and we had this "alamusa". 

Spearheading a Charity Program Called "Lapis at Papel" Before the Run

Team Run Direction Gave Back to the Orani Students

And the most awaited day has come August 14, 2016 Orani 360 Half Marathon - Everyone's ready and me - i am anxious, nervous and excited at last "this is it!". 

I decided not to compete but to enjoy the route, the beauty of Orani. Me, Amz and Lee enjoyed the scenery and made a joyful run-walk-walk pace with the Sweeper Fer De Leon. 

There where we met the Pacer Forever Ayeng Justine Ko with his Team Hugot. And from that moment the  #benteserye fever started.

That Thing Called #Benteserye - May Forever Sa Orani!

Happiness Filled the Finish Line!

Approaching the Finish Line we hear them cheering and all the cameras are on us. It was an epic finish for the three of us. 

The time was not impressive but the experience and the memory of Orani 360 will remain in my heart forever. #mayforeversaOrani360 #benteserye.

Thanks for sharing your story Mom Rej! This really made me missed those interesting moments in the event. But glad that you really had fun at the same time, you were able to help the students amidst of the heavy rain. Will definitely won't miss it next time!

By the way, I love to taste the alimango and the binurong rice since I'm a seafood lover! And Mom Rej, you will also share your whole #benteserye love story soon right?! Haha! Will definitely wait for that! Again congratulations to all the runners and finishers of this running event! Kudos to sir J'ner Manalang for making this happen! I salute you all! (Runner Rocky)

Unlimited Will: Get to Know the Athlete Kyle Maynard and See How He Achieves his Goals Despite his Condition

Yours truly Runner Rocky and the well-known sports apparel brand Nike continuously give you inspiring stories of the different athletes, players, runners, celebrities, or even ordinary people. Yes, I very much salute Nike for sharing us their "Unlimited" campaign paying tributes to extraordinary people! I admit, I can relate with them since myself is already a living proof of they so-called "Unlimited" people.

Today, let me share with you another part of Nike's "Unlimited" campaign called the "Unlimited Will." In the film, it features a man with a rare condition call quadruple amputee. Let us define first this condition - quadruple amputee is actually a person who has lost all or part of both legs and both arms.   

The “Unlimited Will” film is the final installment in the Nike "Unlimited” Campaign, which includes the "Unlimited Courage" film, “Unlimited You" film, Unlimited Youth film and the company’s recent series of athlete shorts. It hails both the everyday and champion athletes who regularly push their limits — and who are poised to prove their unlimited potential this summer and beyond.

“Unlimited Will” celebrates an extraordinary athlete, Kyle Maynard, and his determination to surmount any challenge in his path. 

The Kyle Maynard Story Proves that There is No Boundary if You Want to Achieve Your Goal 

“The defining, life-changing moment [for me] was making my first tackle in football, just taking my helmet and smashing it in another guy’s shins as hard as I could,” declares Kyle Maynard.

30-year-old Maynard describes himself as a climber, author, athlete and speaker with a "general life philosophy of specializing in not specializing." He’s also the first quadruple amputee to ascend Mount Kilimanjaro without the aid of prosthetic.

Born in Washington, D.C., with a rare condition known as congenital amputation, Maynard made that critical football tackle in middle school then switched to wrestling in high school. ”I lost 35 times in a row in a year and a half,” he remembers. “I just kept failing and failing but then finally figured it out. And then by the time I was a senior, people were saying that I was unfairly advantaged.”

“Sometimes when we look at an athlete who has done something in a different way, done something big, done something unique, and we only see the successes.” Maynard adds. “We don’t see the countless hours of failure that go into it. That failure set us up for the success because we know what we needed to change.”

Here is the said "Unlimited Will" film of Nike featuring Kyle Maynard. Let's all watch this:

Maynard applies this same try-until-you-achieve attitude, alongside a signature “No excuses” maxim, as an internationally competitive jiu-jitsu fighter, world record-setting weightlifter and mountaineer, who beyond tackling the pure physical challenges of summiting Africa’s tallest peak had to devise his own equipment. Though he now uses an elite custom climbing system, Maynard initially wrapped towels around the end of his arms, securing them with tape.

“If you’re doing something first, you don’t have that path laid out for you so you just have to go and figure it out,” Maynard explains. “You learn how to use your mind. You learn: How do I not fall apart when I have something bad happen to me? How do I get through and overcome bigger challenges? How do I adapt? The lessons that you learn in your sport can transcend into every area of your life, in your relationships and in just any dream that you have.”

Great one Kyle Maynard! You really inspire us! (Runner Rocky)

Wanted: 'Running Addicts' to Fight Against Illegal Drugs!

The fight against illegal drugs becomes more intense when the former Davao mayor Rodrigo Roa Duterte took a presidential seat. Several campaigns emerged involving force and blood.

But this October 2016, another form of campaign will take place. But this time instead of blood, sweat, fats, and perspiration will come out! Addicts, or should I say running addicts are you ready?!  
The Philippine   National   Police (PNP)  through  the   Police  Community   Relations Group, in partnership with Pinoy Aspiring Runners (PAR) will be organizing a "Takbo Kontra Ilegal Na Droga"  Fun  Run dubbed  as  "The  Running  Addict."  This will be on  October  16,  2016 (Sunday), 4:00 AM  at the CCP Grounds  as a part of the advocacy  of the  PNP to promote the PNPs' drug awareness campaign in line with the advocacy of the current president on the war against illegal drugs.   

Here is the official race poster of the fun run detailing the event:

The Official Running Event Poster of The Running Addict

Yup, as I revealed on my previous post, you will have the chance to run with the #Gwapulis and international male pageant winners Neil Perez (Mister International 2014) and Don Mcgyver (Manhunt International 2015-2016).

There are only three categories in this run - 3KM, 3KM Barefoot, and 5KM. But there are obstacles that will challenge your limit!

In terms of the registration venues, there are three in-store registrations namely SportsHouse, Garmin, and Camp Crame. On the poster above, you may see the branches of these stores as well as the registration fees.

Now let's take a look at the medal and event shirt designs below:

A Police Badge-Inspired Finisher Medal for All Categories

A Police Uniform Theme Event Tech Shirt

And look, BIBs were also cool:

A 3KM BIB Design

A 5KM BIB Design

And of course, here are the race routes:

The Fun-Run  intends to gather  support from  the community  relative to the agenda of the PNP to eradicate drugs through an intense drug awareness campaign.

The  community  at  large  is  the  victim  of the  illegal  drugs,  and  it  is  important to educate them on the ill-effects  of drugs and to encourage them to report any illegal drug activity and crime to the police.   This activity will ultimately develop strong partnership between the PNP and the community.

Part of the proceeds of this event will go to the PNP's program for the rehabilitation of those drug addicts who surrendered.

This is really exciting! PNP and policemen were really trending topics today - in the pageant and modeling we have Neil and Don, in the TV series and entertainment we have Cardo (Coco Martin) in "FPJ's Ang Probinsyano," and of course in the running community, we have now "The Running Addict!" 

So what are you waiting for? Register now and run with us! Runner Rocky is one with this advocacy! See you on the road! (Runner Rocky)

Anton Del Rosario to Runner Rocky: "Fitness is a Lifestyle, Once you Get into It, You will Love It!"

When the runner bumped into a football player...!

If I'm not mistaken, this was my first time to meet and talk to one of the AZKALS favorite players, Anto Del Rosario. Yeah, I admit, Runner Rocky is really a huge fan of AZKALS since 2011. And Anton, a center back football player is one of my idols along with James & Phil Younghusband, Neil Etheridge, and Misaghh Bahadoran. Except for Neil and Anton, I already met before those players in various sports and lifestyle events. And last Sunday, August 15, 2016 at the Sofitel Manila Hotel was my time to meet Anton! 

Cool, kind, and approachable... these were the three words to describe my first impression to Anton. He is easy to get along with. We talked a lot about sports, fitness, his latest activities, and his newly invention, a mobile app called "LARO."

The Sports Blogger / Runner and The Football Player - Rocky and Anton #TeamFit

According to Anton, they train daily for football. He go to gym three times a week to keep his physique and muscles.  

And aside from football, did you know that Anton also loves other sports like basketball, tennis, and golf?! "Growing up in states involve you more in sports," Anton shared to yours truly.

Well in terms of food and diet, did you know that we have the same principle - to whatever you wanted to eat! "We got the license to eat what we want," Anton revealed!

Here is my exclusive video  interview with Anton sharing his sports, fitness, and healthy lifestyle:

In my video interview, Anton even shared his upcoming events. Yes, this Sunday, he will be running in the Sofitel Manila Half Marathon 2016 for the benefits of the Virlane children. He appreciated when I shared to him that I already ran for two consecutive years (2014 and 2015) in the said Sofitel Half Marathon. 

Meanwhile, Anton even introduced to me his latest brainchild, the mobile app called "LARO." LARO, a name derive from the Filipino word for play is actually a social mobile app intended for the sports-minded person. He launched this app more than one month ago. In our video, he further explained about this app. This app will track all of your sports (for instance your running activities) and will give you metrics on your games.

"American Ninja Warrior," The Most Watched Sports Competition Back on AXN

Yours truly Runner Rocky is excited and always ready to join different obstacle runs and obstacle courses. I have already conquered some like the Guerilla Race, Men's Health Urbanathlon, and SynchRUNize. And yes, I was able to pass all the challenges their brought! I even love to watch different reality shows or competitions with action themes. And I love to do action films or TV series in the future if given a chance!

Inline with this, a US reality sports show competition now premieres its new season. Definitely, just like me who loves action, sports, and obstacles, you too are also excited for this!  

American Ninja Warrior, one of the most watched sports competition series on television, returns on AXN for a sixth season. 

As in previous seasons, hundreds of contestants from all over the United States will test each other’s strength, stamina, and endurance as they hurdle the challenging obstacles of the qualifying rounds in the regional competitions to be held in five locations: Venice Beach, California; Dallas, Texas; St. Louis, Missouri; Miami, Florida; and Denver, Colorado.

Are You ready to be an American Ninja Warrior?! How Far Can You Surpass the Obstacles?!

The top 100 competitors will vie in the national finals in Las Vegas, Nevada, where the U. S. version of Mount Midoriyama, the grueling obstacle course in Japan, has been constructed for the finals course of the competition.

Competitors should complete the first three stages consisting of a total of 23 obstacles before advancing to the finals stage where they attempt to climb the 8-story Mount Midoriyama, a 75-foot rope climb in 30 seconds or less.  The winner receives US$500,000 and the coveted title “American Ninja Warrior.”

Unlike any other competition on television, American Ninja Warrior was nominated as Favorite Reality Show in the 2015 Kids’ Choice Awards and as Favorite Competition TV Show in the 2016 People’s Choice Awards. This year, as proof of its growing popularity among viewers, American Ninja Warrior has been nominated for Outstanding Reality-Competition Program in the upcoming 68th Emmy Awards.

American Ninja Warrior Season 6 is again hosted by American actor and comedian Matt Iseman, former NFL football player and sports analyst Akbar Gbaja-Biamila, and ESPN sportscaster and model Jenn Brown as the sideline reporter.

American Ninja Warrior Season 6 airs Tuesdays-Thursdays at 7:55pm First & Exclusive on AXN. (Runner Rocky)

Unlimited Youth: Meet "The Iron Nun" Sister Madonna Buder

Being an athlete or a triathle has no age limit. As long as you are strong and you can conquer different challenges, you can still be like one of us!

It's good to know that there is a nun at the age of 86 years old who is still active in triathlon. She already conquered 40 IRONMAN races! And Nike via their latest Unlimited campaign pays tribute to this extra ordinary athlete via their newest "Unlimited Youth." 

The “Unlimited Youth” film is the latest installment in the Nike "Unlimited” Campaign, which includes the "Unlimited Courage" film, “Unlimited You" film, the company’s recent series of athlete shorts and more, with more to come through the month of August, hails both the everyday athletes and the champion athletes who regularly push their limits — and who are poised to prove their unlimited potential this summer and beyond.

“Unlimited Youth” celebrates an extraordinary athlete, Sister Madonna Buder, and her determination to defy conventional conceptions of age.

When Sister Madonna Buder needed a little extra oomph to complete her first IRONMAN® World Championship triathlon in Hawaii, she predictably channeled the divine. “I thought of the finish line as the entrance to the final finish line, into the Pearly Gates,” she recalls. “That’s what drew me to [it].”

Sister Buder completed that race in 1985, at the age 65. At 75, the American nun became the oldest woman to ever complete an IRONMAN triathlon. At 82, she set a world record as the oldest IRONMAN triathlon competitor. Today, at 86 years old, she has completed over 40 IRONMAN races, each comprising of a 2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike and 26.2-mile run. Her steely resolve has earned her the epithet the “Iron Nun.” Along the way she’s had some setbacks — missing a race finish by a matter of seconds, multiple broken bones, wetsuit issues — but, she proclaims, “The only failure is not to try, because your effort in itself is a success.”

Here is the new video of NIKE featuring the story of Sister Madonna Buder. Let's all watch this:

Sister Buder’s introduction to sport came just seven years before her first race in Hawaii, when she attended a workshop on the Oregon Coast that was led by a priest who championed running as a way to harmonize the mind, body and soul. Sister Buder took this creed to the extreme, burning out on the sport before discovering the variety of the triathlon. “That was the salvation,” she declares. Her physical endurance she attributes to listening to her body and maintaining a positive mindset. 

“You carry your attitude with you,” Sister Buder elaborates. “You either achieve or you self-destruct. If you think positively, you can even turn a negative into a positive.” Along with this spiritual guidance, she imparts simple, yet easily applicable performance advice to younger athletes: “One step at a time makes a marathon.” (Runner Rocky)
