Retro Bikes

As part of my new way of exercise on how to conquer my diabetes i am including "biking" here in my running blog.

Last month, Sept. 29,2013 Pinoy Retrobikes member's gathered together to celebrate the 2nd anniversary of the group. It was held in U.P. infront of Palma hall. It was a show-off of a vintage bikes of all different kinds like road bikes, track bikes, mini velos, cruisers, and mountain bikes. Bike enthusiasts and members  shared each other on how to keep and preserve rare precious and odd parts not sold in our local bike store.

I should note that I am a complete novice to bike maintenance, vintage bikes in general, and anything much more involved that just hopping on a bike and going, for my main reason only is to conquer my diabetes. But that's maybe what intimidate some about owning a vintage bike- that it may require some keen know-how or involved understanding of how to fix old bikes.

If you're determined to ride and have a bike- any bike- that is reasonable fit, you should be able to hop on and go. And sometimes the bike you least expected to fall in love with might just end up stealing your heart.

Happy riding!

Condura Skyway Marathon 2013 - Teaser



I know it's too early to talk about Condura Skyway Marathon 2013. But i can't wait for that day which I still remember my first half-marathon which happened at Condura Skyway Marathon2011. It's a cause run for the dolphin then. Now it's a run for the mangroves and it will be held on Feb. 3, 2013.

This is the Official Logo of the CSM 2013
and this is the finisher's medal.
I definitely say that my whole Condura experience last 2011 was vastly different from my other run and more fun and inspiring!

Thanks to the Condura organizers for the good online registration, clean and comprehensive website, race kit which included safety tips and chocolates, a runner's e-handbook, attractive and high quality dri-fit shirt, wave start system, ample hydration, sponges and food, high quality medal, and personalized finisher's certificates. 

So get ready for another anticipated running event. 


Here are some memorable pictures of my past CSM 2011.

Hyundai Accent FREE Run – April 2, 2011



Almost forgot to publish my blog in Hyundai Accent free-run which was truly a great free fun-run with an enormous crowd gathered in the historic Quirino Grandstand. According to the report that it reaches 24,000 runners joined in this marvelous event.


 I belong to wave B and wore my nike compression short and nike cap but preferred to stick to my friends in wave C. The starting line was in Bahay Pambata across Kalaw st. U-turn for 10k was in Edsa and finish line in Quirino Granstand.

 Along Roxas Blvd. you could see a green marshals filing at the center of the boulevard and ample personalized bottled water in the hydration stations. You could also see the presence of PNP personnel, enough ambulance and medics.



                                                                                                            

Truly a clean and very organized run!
