First Ride on the Ceepo Katana

A few weeks ago I told you that thanks to Jerry Santos, the distributor of Ceepo here in the Philippines, I was upgrading my ride from a Mamba frame to something else. I asked you readers to guess which frame I was upgrading to.

The Ceepo Katana is what many of Ceepo’s pro athletes ride, and so it’s been my dream bike since last year.

Jerry had a few 2014 Katana frames lying around — the 2015 models have only just been launched in Kona this week, so it’ll take a while for those frames to get here. The only significant difference between the 2014 and 2015 Katana frames are the colorways, integrated top tube bolt bosses (for direct-mount bento box installation), and a QR Code sticker that provides easy identification for athletes in the event of an emergency.

I was able to take my newly-assembled bike for a first spin last weekend at Nuvali. Read more »

Spring Cleaning Swag Contest

The past year has been full-on training and racing for me, leaving little time for much else. Yesterday was the first time I got to sift through all the stuff that I’ve accumulated, and it’s time to let go of some things:

Spring Cleaning Swag Contest

  • a Tune Belt for iPhone 4 and 4S-sized smartphones (see my review here)
  • Berghaus Membership Card (10% off on in-store and online purchases)
  • FTX Fitness Exchange gift certificate worth P2,000
  • CW-X gift certificate worth P2,000

I usually give these things to my friends and family, but I decided to make things more fun by turning the giveaway into a contest! Just answer the form below correctly to get a chance to win. Contest runs from today, October 3, until October 10 12nn and is open to Philippine residents.

UPDATED: Contest is closed! Thanks for playing. Winner will be announced over the Kikay Runner On the Go Podcast.

My New Training Playlist on Spotify

Thanks to everyone who followed my Road to Roth playlist on Spotify! Those were the songs that helped me train for Challenge Roth and were a very important part of my journey.

But now that race is over and done with and it just didn’t feel right to keep adding new songs to that race-specific playlist. Thanks to Globe’s GoSURF data plan and the free Spotify Premium service that comes with it, I’ve been browsing all sorts of playlists and discovering songs that I love running and cycling to!

Because Spotify has a huge community of users who put playlists together, it’s not hard to find a playlist for any occasion. I usually hit shuffle, and when a song comes on that I like, I add it to my own playlist. Read more »

Mizuno Run Club, Revived

Long before the running boom, the Mizuno Run Club was created to help runners prepare for the first Mizuno Infinity Run. Many of the running community’s leaders were part of that first group of runners interested in serious performance.

Yesterday at Cuenca Park in Ayala Alabang, we began the revival of the Mizuno Run Club.
