A race to remember with Derek Ramsay and Century Tuna

January 30, 2010

It’s not that often that I get to be invited in an upcoming race’s Press Conference, and I was fortunate enough to be invited to one. It’s Coach Rio’s first leg of his RunRion Trilogy, the Century Tuna Superbods Run 2010. The Media Launch was held last Thursday, January 28, 2009 at the National Sports Grill. Eager and not wanting to be late, I left early for the venue, since I’m not that particular at Makati Area. I arrived a minute early, saw friends and bloggers at the site.

Here are some details about the run:

“The Superbods Run, organized in collaboration with the country’s top running coach Rio de la Cruz of RunRio, promises to be a most exciting way to get fit and healthy! Participants will get to run with the country’s hottest celebrities, win great prizes, raffle treats, freebies and a lot of other surprises! “

According to Angela Gamboa, Century Tuna senior product manager, this year’s event is a great way to communicate to consumers that fitness is a way of life that one can adopt regardless of the season and setting. “This year, we decided to hold the Superbods event in Manila to prove that being fit and healthy is a choice, no matter where we are. We can all choose to be fit the whole year through, not just during summer, whether we’re at the beach or in the city.”

On top of the big cash prizes, all top finishers will receive special prizes from Century Tuna, Nike, Timex, and Nature Valley, plus RunRio Finisher’s shirts and medals.

A highlight of the Run is the Superbods Go-See, where race finishers 18 years old and above with fit and healthy bodies can get a chance to become Century Tuna’s next image models. Two males and two females will be picked as the new Century Superbods and win P100,000 each.

Exciting activities such as capoeira and yoga exhibitions await the runners after the race. Everyone can also enjoy delicious Century Tuna recipes and try out the delicious corned beefy taste of Century Corned Tuna.

The event will also feature a raffle-for-a-cause, where participants who present as many Century Tuna labels at the drop-off areas at registration venues and at the event itself get to win big prizes. For every label dropped, a corresponding donation will go to the UNICEF and the WWF.

So run for health and for a good cause! Join the Century Tuna Superbods Run 2010 at the Bonifacio Global City. Registration is until February 8, 2010 at the following venues: Timex Shops at SM Southmall, SM Mall of Asia, and SM Megamall; Nike Park at Bonifacio High Street; and Second Wing Running Store at 88 Maginhawa St., Teachers’ Village, Quezon City.

It’s my kid’s turn

January 18, 2010

Last night,my husband registered my kid at the Alaska IronKids Run Race which will be held on February 28, 2010 at the Manila Polo Club. And just yesterday both of my kids learned how to ride their bicycle without training wheels. At first Erick and I were afraid that they might fall and get hurt,but you have to give your children the encouragement they needed. I remembered that it was at the age of 15 when I learned how to ride bike compared to my kids who have recently turned 6years old. I’ am a proud parent.

We are encouraging our kids to be physically active, since it gives them discipline and healthy body. As of now we are trying to find a swimming club that my kids could possible join and maybe in the near future enroll them in Coach Ani De Leon’s Kid’s Tri. 🙂

Someone Righteous! (Reminder:This is a political post)

January 15, 2010

This is a political post – read at your own risk! 😀

This is an out of the ordinary post that I usually put here. I would just like to be heard, I want to be counted. Election here in the Philippines had been about political machinery, whether or not a candidate has the money, people and connections had been the measure if someone is capable of running and winning the election.

This post is about my President this coming election, someone who I truly believe that if the people permit would be a good leader. He’s a righteous man before us and God, one of the qualifications I really admire is him being God-fearing which should be the first qualification someone should have before he/she can serve the people.

My vote belongs to Bro. Eddie Villanueva. I’ am not campaigning nor endorsing Bro. Eddie and persuading anybody reading this blog to change their vote and I hope that you would not judge me for voicing out my opinion. This is a free country, I have the right to post my political views but not to the point of pointing the wrongs of other who wish to serve the people. I believe is Bro. Eddie’s vision and I believe Him who is beside Bro. Eddie all the way. I do hope that you pray for God’s will to rule over your decision on whom to vote.

Let us pray that we would have a peaceful election, and may the right person win. May God be with us always. 🙂
