Blas invited me for a dinner with some runner bloggers and some people from other industry for press release of this sugar alternative- Suchero. It was held at Red Crab restaurant located at Plaza Venice. Meeting with some friends, they notice that I gained weight, plus having a longer hair this time, I look like Niño Muhlach na daw (I swear I look like Aga Muhlach now!Pwde nba?). Blas organized this press and I’m really surprise my friend was able to pull this off. Well the foods were great, there were fun games where you’re entitled to win something (the luckiest one was Jazz for winning another runner shoes and Rico for some hotel accommodation somewhere in Bohol. There was also this speech of Joey Villa (Churner Group big boss) about the benefits of Suchero, the sugar alternative. Well, I was really keen on listening to him, as diabetes run in the family, I’m pretty sure its just a matter of time before I myself suffer from some type of diabetes if I don’t check my health and control my sugar intake. Anyway, see the official info below for Suchero which is already available in the market: The Search for the Best Sugar Alternative An organic certification provides assurance that no chemical food additives or processes that may prove harmful over the long run were used to produce a sweetener Unwanted pounds, obesity, and diabetes are some good reasons to avoid sugar and to find

Almost two weeks ago, I went to Mizuno main office to get some documents signed for my other business. The day coincides with the official press release of Mizuno BE where I was also invited to marvel at their new creation. I don’t have a pair yet so there’s nothing to review, but to give you a clue what is, Mizuno BE is patterned after a Japanese sandal called Waraji. Here’s a photo: If you look closely above, you better expect a minimalist shoes coming from Mizuno. However, here’s a caveat, its not made for running, you cannot use it during your training runs, tempo or worst use it when you feel like racing. Weighing only 7 ounce, the shoes main selling is point is you can use this to help strengthen and activate your lower leg and foot muscles to improve running performance. So you can probably use this when you’re walking around your house, mall or when you’re doing yoga. However, I won’t be surprise if I see “minimalist” runners running on this shoes. Here are some photos: And since I feel like being Santa Claus today, I’m giving a way a voucher which entails the winner to get the shoes for only php1995 (SRP is php 3995). To join, simply comment below and let me know why you deserve it
I went to St. Lukes BGC last Monday for a checkup with urologist. After several days, I finally have the courage to have a doctor checked my condition. What made me decide to finally see a doctor was because of the same issue I encountered before, pee on my blood after running or work-out. It was Friday the previous week when I did a light and 30 minutes of workout at Slimmers World Pasay road branch and after the work-out, I saw blood again in my pee. That was enough to scare the hell out of me that I finally decided to visit a hospital. You see I don’t like hospitals. The only time I have to go to hospital is when I have to be with relatives or my love ones confined in hospital and I have to be around to be the errand boy, give moral support, courage and financial assistance (lol). Anyway, so the doctor asked me a couple of questions and I told him my situaion. I didn’t want to tell him that I’m spending php1,200 for a few minutes of chat with him just for him to confirm my own diagnosis. So he requested me to go for ultrasound (KUB) and urinalysis. You know what I hate most about the ultrasound? The nurse/doctor required me that I fill my bladder with water such that my bladder is about to burst through my penis, before they
I haven’t been running for almost a week now. But I just did 2 hours ago. I was puffing every 500 meters that I have to stop, catch my breathe, walk then run again. I only manage to finish 6km. Looking back, I was wondering how I manage to join and actually finish that 102km race that I joined 2 years ago hahahaha! I need to get back my old fitness level. I need to cut my carbs and get back my optimum running weight (that is 130lbs, but I’m 160lbs now damn it!) I need to run more because that the cheapest fix I know of. If I don’t run, my relationship with people, friends and family will be hell. Running keeps me sane, helps me stop taking some medicines to deal with my internal demons and makes things easier for me. I need to run more….now when should I start
I just ran minutes ago and I confirmed that the cause of blood on my pee during my run a week ago was caused by an empty bladder. I ran 3 times for the past 6 days and in all those runs where I drank 1 glass of water before the run, the color of my urine looked normal. So there you go, no more worries for me. My next worry is my weight, it must go down!
