Super League Hamilton Island Wrap-Up

It’s been a super-intense week of racing action — and I’m not even talking about how hard the athletes went during the three days of Super League Hamilton Island.

As part of the small but agile team running the show, I was tasked with ensuring we had high-quality content going up on the website and timely press releases going out to media. I also got tasked with odd jobs, like manning the VIP reception desk and putting together research about athletes and special guests for use on the television broadcast. It was a huge undertaking for all involved in its many different aspects, so we are super pleased that Super League Hamilton Island was as successful as it was.

A lot of my work was done off-cam because the athletes are the stars of this show, and I hope that the broadcasts really allowed them to shine through. They are all pretty awesome at what they do, and it’s high-time triathlon gave them the status and attention they deserve as the best in our sport.

Womens Summit
BDJ Women’s Summit

A few weeks ago I was invited to speak at the Woman Up! pocket event held by Belle de Jour Power Planner. I felt really recharged and inspired seeing so many empowered women in one venue. I was so happy when BDJ invited me to attend their second Women’s Summit “Women Can. Women Will.” happening on March 25, 2017 at the Samsung Hall, SM Aura.

The BDJ Women’s Summit aims to inspire and empower more women to become catalysts for change, and their list of invited speakers are heavy hitters in their respective fields.

Nike+ Training Club Manila Launch

Nike Training Club Manila launch

I’ve written about and mentioned Nike+ Training Club a few times in my blog. I first encountered NTC last year during Tights Night and Leap Year Day. I really enjoyed the circuit workouts then, so I downloaded the NTC workout app and began using it as part of my cross-training regimen. I also got to attend an NTC live session late last year.

The Nike+ Training Club relaunches this 2017! Starting March 4, NTC Live classes will be held on Wednesdays 8:30pm and Saturdays 10:30am at Kerry Sports Manila in Bonifacio Global City. You know what the really cool thing about this is? It’s absolutely free! Continue reading “Nike+ Training Club Manila Launch”

adidas UltraBOOST X Launch

Adidas Ultraboost X

When the PureBOOST X was launched last year, it was adidas’ first major foray into designing a shoe primarily for women’s specific needs. Since then it’s had a few iterations always featuring the adaptive (floating) arch that uniquely supports the female foot.

With the launch of the UltraBOOST X for women, the adaptive arch once again makes its appearance, but this time in a shoe that’s part of the hugely popular UltraBOOST running shoe line. Continue reading “adidas UltraBOOST X Launch”
