Road to SuBIT

And so we come to this: the last two days before the biggest multisport event of my life so far. The Subic Bay International Triathlon (SuBIT) is one of the country’s longest-running tri events, and I’m joining the Sprint category (750m swim, 20km bike, 5km run) for the first time. *gulp*

This April in Women’s Health

April is the month I’m usually away at the beach, and this year it’s no different. I’m so glad Women’s Health invited me again to their yearly Beauty and the Beach anniversary event in Boracay. If you’re in Boracay on April 16 and 17, bringing the April issue of Women’s Health to our venue in Station 1 in front of Havaianas will get you free registration in the fun group classes.

Also, you’ll get to see this inside the Women’s Health mag:
