About

Hello, my name is Noelle De Guzman, and I am the Kikay Runner.

OK, wait. What does that mean, exactly? Well, it means I’m a female recreational runner who, aside from being interested in all that sports science has to offer when it comes to helping me run faster, also likes looking good while doing so. *wink*

The story behind this: I got into running in July 2009, and pretty soon my friends and I were joining races and I was buying new gear. I’ve been blogging since 2001 and I’ve always been in the habit of writing about things I’ve done or discovered, so my personal blog In My Pocket was soon overrun by running-related posts.

In 2010, my friend Joel proposed that we work towards doing a marathon by the end of the year. Now I, being the reckless Kikay Runner I am, decided to take the plunge and thought keeping a running-specific blog would help keep me motivated. I also acquired a Garmin Forerunner 305 and called him Kiko.

I ran my first marathon on 4 July 2010, the 34th Milo National Eliminations — and also my birthday. I was excited and scared, but I think I looked damn good while doing it. Ü I also competed in my first triathlon on 17 October 2010 and absolutely loved it.

I’m the resident fitness expert on Xpert.PH and contribute articles to Solar Sports Desk.

I’m a member of Team Endure Multisport and Team MaccaX. I’m also a brand ambassador for Mizuno Running, Ceepo Bikes, and Lightwater.
