Guam Ko’Ko’ Road Race Half Marathon and Ekiden Relay 2015 – My first half marathon (21K) experience!
Just a couple of days ago, I, together with two buddies of mine – Victor Basa and Jeff Lo – traveled to the beautiful island of Guam to join the annual Guam Ko’Ko’ Road Race Half Marathon and Ekiden Relay 2015.
This was to be my first ever half marathon (21K), so what better way to kick off the next phase of my enthusiasm and passion for running than by joining an international competition and doing it abroad.
As cliche as it sounds, I cannot stress enough how true the saying is that “Health is wealth”.
As a family man who watches over my wife and two teenage kids, it is important to make the health and welfare of my loved ones a top priority. I make sure that junk food is kept to a minimum, physical activities and regular exercise are incorporated into our lifestyle, and proper hygiene is practiced at all times.
As much as possible, I try to lead by example so as to encourage my family to do the same.
Traffic. Stress. Deadlines. Or just plain bored. There’s really nothing a good time with barkada over a couple of drinks, food and laughter can’t fix.
That’s why my wife and I make it a point to spend some R&R (that’s “Rest and Recreation”, in case you didn’t know) with close buddies and family.
Whenever fun and drinks come to mind, one of the first places that is immediately suggested is Dencio’s Bar and Grill. Of course!
Dencio’s Bar and Grill has been the go-to destination of barkada and office buddies as far back as I can remember. Chalk it up to a great festive ambiance, tradition, or maybe because of their ever popular and insanely delicious sisig!
Whatever the reason may be, Dencio’s Bar and Grill is always top of mind.
If there’s one thing I truly admire about the people in Korea, it is perhaps in how they love their culture and care for their national heritage.
You can sense the kind of pride Koreans have when it comes to their nation’s history and humble beginnings.
During my South Korea trip, the wonderful people of the Korea Tourism Organization took us to their Korean Folk Village in Yongin, located in the Gyeonggi Province. The (roughly) 40-year old place is a very popular destination for both locals and tourists.
Just last Thursday, Vida Nutriscience, Inc. revealed to the media (as well as to the public) the newest brand ambassador and face of Snow Caps – Alden Richards. Alden is better known as one half of the tandem that makes up “Aldub”, the phenomenal love team that has taken social media and the online world by storm.
With much anticipation, the media waited with bated breath, eagerly awaiting the big reveal at Plaza Ibarra along Timog Ave., Quezon City.
Finally, after a good while of waiting, all speculations and guesses were put to rest as the partnership between Snow Caps and Alden Richards was finally announced.
