As the month of October (my blog’s anniversary-month by the way!), we all look forward to a race-packed November (as if October was not the same!) and most of all, most of us also look forward to participating in the third and last leg of the RunRio Trilogy – the Run United 3 race on November 13.

I will be raffling off (through  the online facility randomizer.org), FIVE (5) RUNRIO GIFT VOUCHERS which will entitle the bearer to a COMPLIMENTARY registration for the RUNRIO TRILOGY LEG 3, RUN UNITED 3 race. So how do we go about it? Read on for the contest mechanics:

aDIDAS King of the Road Race Results and Discussions

Hello folks! This post is not about the actual race results of the just concluded aDIDAS King of the Road Southeast Asia Championships. This post is more about letting everyone know that:

1. Race results will always be OFFICIALLY RELEASED by the Race Owners or Race Organizers first before any other entities. If somebody other than the two (race owner, race organizer) releases results way ahead of these two, more often than not, it is an empty post promising that race results will really be “available once it is released” OR there may be a link or downloadable results available but are unofficial. Isn’t it irritating to land on a page like this?

2. Blogging is not only about gathering hits. Blogging is a passion of sharing what you have experienced, your thoughts, your learnings and information you have fairly and justly gathered or provided to you by a reliable source. Once a blogger gets interested in gathering hits more than being able to be a positive influencer in the community, be wary because these kind will only use runners as proof of their so-called “reach” in order to make money out of blogging. There are other blogs though that really do earn but runners are enjoined to scrutinize those who are really credible running bloggers (they really are runners to begin with!) or those who pose as one (can’t even run a decent 3km).

3. Bloggers should be able to share credible information, promote goodwill, sportsmanship among runners and respect with one another. When one just let everyone act as if  they are free to turn the running community to be a marketplace then why is he/she blogging in the first place? Once a blog is opened to the public, it entails great responsibility. Therefore, blogs should be POSITIVE INFLUENCERS, one who promotes good values, help educate/re-educate its visitors/readers. 

These are perfectionist statements as it may seem but if all of us just first begin to respect one another and avoid resorting to dirty tactics, the running community will be a better place to linger in and running as a sport will not be considered as the “new badminton”.

Thanks folks for your time and let us all look forward to better options soon! 😉

Of adobo, Halloween Night Run in Costume and FREE Race Kits!

The adobo Run After Dark race event brings much to look forward to. Whether runners are in need of a smaller night run crowd, or in search of a really fun run with that exciting post-race entertainment (read:concert), or would like to see how they can run after GMA’s Cinderella, or find out how the Playboy Playmates will complete a 3km run in their Playboy Bunny outfits, or maybe, seriously, run to make a difference as this event has as its beneficiary Illac Diaz’ Isang Litrong Liwanag advocacy. Any reason one may have, the adobo Run After Dark is definitely one race to look forward to. 🙂

A good number of my chums will be running the 5km race in costume. Me and hubby will too, but haven’t gotten to deciding which costume to don in! But nevertheless, with or without a costume, everyone is welcome to take part in this Halloween Night Run.

And because I want everyone to have a chance to experience this one of a kind race happening on the 29th of October at the Aseana Business Center, and  because I just remembered that this month is my blog’s anniversary, I will be giving-away THREE (3) ADOBO RUN AFTER DARK RACE KITS (race category of your choice!)!  So how do we go about it?

1. Post as a comment your answer to the question: “If you will be given a chance to run in the ADOBO RUN AFTER DARK  race, what do you think will a good costume be and why?”.
2. In the spirit of fairness, I will be accepting only ONE ENTRY PER PERSON.
3. There will be no wrong answers but the TOP THREE creative answers, which will be voted upon by THREE JUDGES (me, the adobo Run After Dark Race Director and another blogger) will each get to WIN  a FREE RACE KIT.
4. This contest will be open from today until midnight of Wednesday, October 26.
5. Winners will be announced on the night of October 27  to enable winners to claim their kits at ROX on October 28.

Good luck everyone and I look forward to seeing you at the race! 🙂
