Alaska IronKids Aquathlon – RACE and PLAY

Last February 9, the first for 2014 leg of the Alaska Ironkids events was held at the The Village Sports Club in BF Homes, Paranaque.

As in every Ironkids event, this one was kinda a family bonding activity, where almost all members of the family came to cheer on their little participant. What was different for this year was that apart from the events thrust of helping kids develop the values of discipline, hard work, integrity and determination via the race, an option to”race” or “play” was also provided to participants. These means categories under “RACE” are for our competitive little ones who thrive trained to race and enjoy the challenge of competition while categories under “PLAY” are for those who just want to participate mainly for the experience or to enjoy doing the sport without the pressure of competition.

So whether your kid is who loves to compete or one who is fairly new to the sport and would not want to be intimidated by competing participants, there’s a category perfect for them at this year’s Alaska Ironkids events. Main difference for the “race” and “play” is the absence of the awards and rankings for participants of the Play category, it being a non-competitive category.

Meanwhile let me share to you various snapshots taken from the Aquathlon event last Feb. 9. Enjoy!

See you on the next event, the Alaska Ironkids Triathlon happening on April 13 at the La Stanza, Marikina

The Alaska Ironkids is a series of races involving triathlon, aquathlon and running, which aim to promote a well-balanced and healthy lifestyle for children ages 6-14. For more information, log on to www.ironkidsphil.com or at www.alaskamilk.com and follow us on twitter @AlaskaSportsHub

ADIDAS UNLEASHES EXPLOSIVE ENERGY WITH SPRINGBLADE

PRESS RELEASE:

ADIDAS UNLEASHES EXPLOSIVE ENERGY WITH SPRINGBLADE
The only running shoe with innovative blade technology designed to help propel you forward

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Manila, February 2014 Today adidas launches Springblade in the Philippines, the first running shoe with individually tuned blades engineered to help propel runners forward with one of the most effective energy returns in the industry.

Unlike standard EVA midsoles that deliver energy return in a vertical direction, Springblade features 16 forward angled blades made out of a high-tech polymer.  The highly elastic blades instantaneously react to any environment, compressing and releasing energy to create an efficient push-off that feels like you have springs under your feet.

“Springblade’s progressive look and blade technology are radically different than any running shoe ever created,” said James Carnes, global creative director of performance at adidas.  “At the same time, adidas’ goal is to create a beautiful performance shoe designed to be simple and intuitive.”

Carnes continued, “Every aspect of Springblade is engineered to reflect extensive athlete insights to help make them better.  For design inspiration, we drew upon everyday objects that deliver explosive energy return – everything from springboards to pole vaults and motorcycle suspensions.”

Each blade is precisely tuned in geometry, thickness and position for each phase of a runner’s stride to provide support and a full range of movement. Additionally, Springblade’s flexible construction was designed to hug the top of a runner’s foot, locking it in to harness the energy returned from the springs on the outsole.

“adidas is continuing to develop new innovations based on what athletes not only need but demand,” said Mikal Peveto, director of running at adidas America.  “We know we have something special with BOOST cushioning introduced earlier this year and we’re confident Springblade will set us apart from the competition once again.”

Peveto continued, “Six years in the making, Springblade provides one of the highest energy returns in the industry.”

aIT (adidas Innovation Team) tested hundreds of materials to ensure each spring produced maximum energy efficiency with every step and conducted rigorous ballistics tests to maintain long-lasting durability.  For top performance in all environments, Springblade is seven times more temperature resistant than shoes with adidas’ standard EVA cushioning.

Springblade is available for Php 8995 on February at adidas Bonifacio High Street, Mall of Asia and Planet Sports Power Plant (Rockwell).

adidas running innovates high performance footwear and apparel with easy to understand benefits to help athletes of every level get faster and better for their sport.  For more information visit facebook.com/adidasPH.


Ready? Restart, Reboot, and Refresh in time for Summer

PRESS RELEASE:

Ready? Restart, Reboot, and Refresh in time for Summer

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Summertime is about planned getaways, scheduled leaves, and organized itineraries. But the season, just like the weather, is often unpredictable, and the key to enjoying the heat despite its unpredictability is being prepared with whatever comes your way.

These three Rs will definitely help you ride through life with a smile on your face.

Restart

When something unexpected comes up, it’s important not to panic. Whether it’s bumped off flights or full hotels, take a deep breath and simply restart. See what went wrong in the situation, and then decide what steps to take next. By restarting, you are giving yourself the chance to see it from a different perspective.

Reboot

After you’ve evaluated the situation, you can now see how you can make the situation better. Rebooting your summer plans means making better choices in travel companions, hotels, and even locations. As you open yourself to the possibilities, you become intimidated by the situation you are in, and start enjoying the change even more.

Refresh

Sometimes, all it takes to be ready for any challenge summer throws your way is by simply resting. All it takes is a break to get ready to enjoy the heat again. Instead of going full force into organizing yet another trip, take a break and just stay in on weekends with friends while munching on your favorite treats.

A drink that will definitely refresh you in all the right places is Nestea in a Bottle. Making a comeback from the 90s, the well-loved drink that is available in three flavors, Lemon, Apple, and Lemon Ice, makes it easy to take the plunge anytime, anywhere.
