Back when I had just started this blog, my friend Vince Golangco of When In Manila asked if I were interested to do a group photo shoot with some other top and up-and-coming bloggers in Manila. On the roster were Hannah Villasis (personal and travel), Kring Elenzano (humor and entertainment), Ken Tan (business), and Nina Terol-Zialcita (activism), aside from Vince himself as well. I agreed to be the sporty blogger among them; as it was, I was the midget among these blogging giants.

It was only a matter of time before I got suckered sucked into the world of multisport.
And so, after four weeks of training, I found myself in the De La Salle Zobel pool last Sunday morning about to start my first triathlon. Continue reading “NAGT: Enter the Multi-Kikay”
Due to my cramming for a triathlon this weekend, I’ve sorely dropped the ball on marathon preparations. Fortunately, the last leg of the RunRio series is around the corner, and my desire to do the 32K Afroman distance will be enough to kick me back into action.

There are so many races to choose from in this last quarter of the year. After having had a full slate of races in the last few months, most of them happening at Bonifacio Global City, I feel a hankering for a different race experience. The Men’s Health Urbanathlon 2010 on November 7 might just be the ticket to break up the monotony.
