Rexona Takes Music Powered Run to The Next Level

On October 26, immerse yourself in a trail of pulsating beats and scintillating visuals that will push you to go further into running euphoria at one of the most sought-after runs in the calendar, the Rexona Run To Your Beat 2014.

Taking Rexona’s Do More philosophy to the next level, Rexona Run To Your Beat 2014 will once again challenge you to stretch your limits at a music powered run that pushes you further while you stay fresh. Mar Corazo, Rexona Brand Manager, says, “We are always finding ways to make the Rexona Run more exciting than the last. This year, we wanted to take the Do More philosophy into higher gear with stimulating visuals to match music from different genres, as interpreted by some of Manila’s top DJs.”

This year, Rexona has chosen to collaborate with the Republiq group and the top DJs in the Philippines to fuel your run with live music. Pushing runners to the finish line will be DJs Ace Ramos, Mars Miranda, Deuce Manila, Martin Pulgar, Euric, Motherbasss, and MC Pao.

To make things even more exciting, Rexona introduces three new tunnels with varying themes that will make the music come to life. At key points during the race, runners will be able to experience the Retro, HipHop and EDM themed tunnels that will have different features, from roller bladders to disco balls, street art to laser light. But of course, only those who can do more can enjoy all three tunnels. 5K and 10k runners will go through two tunnels, while 21k runners will be able to experience all three!

Gun start for 5k is 3:45 AM, 10k 3:30 AM and 21k 3:00 AM. Interested runners can register online at www.runrio.com/rexonarun starting September 8, today, until October 12, 2014. In-store registration will also be available in Toby’s MOA, RUNNR Store or Move in Bonifacio High Street, Toby’s SM North EDSA, The Block and Toby’s Robinsons Galleria starting Friday, September 12 until October 19.

To prepare individuals for this much-awaited run, Rexona will be holding running clinics from

September 16 – October 23. Led by Coach Rio, in collaboration with 360 Club Fitness, the clinics will be twice a week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 6-9PM at the Fort. The clinic is open to all interested individuals, but priority will be given to those who have registered for the Rexona Run 2014. Sign up for the Rexona Run running clinics now at the Training Camp tab on the Rexona Facebook page.

Stay fresh as the live music pushes you further at Rexona Run To Your Beat 2014!

Carbo-loading, Italian-Style at La Piadina

Last Monday, wife and I were invited for a food-tasting night at La Piadina, a cozy Italian restaurant in Legaspi Village, Makati Central Business District. Their branch at Solaris-One Building is very accessible, Dela Rosa is just a parallel street with Ayala Avenue, and parking is available nearby. In my opinion, I can say that Italian cuisine is healthier, compared with other European cooking, theirs uses a lot of healthy oils, tomatoes and herbs. Long-distance runners and athletes may want to try carbo-loading, the Italian-style at any of the two La Piadina branches. Did I mentioned great pizza and pasta?

La Piadina at One Solaris Building, 130 Dela Rosa Street ,Legaspi Village, Makati City

We were welcomed warmly and assisted to join other blogger-friends inside and were immediately served with red and white wines. We tasted samples of new entries in their menu starting with appetizers, Spinach souffle with cheese sauce (Sformatino di spinaci e la salsa formaggio) and Egg plant tart (Tortino di melanzane), followed by Fresh homemade potato dumplings in cheesy tomato sauce (Gnocchi alla sorrentina), Penne pasta with ricotta cheese (Pasta “Cacio e pepe”) and Crepe with ricotta cheese mushroom and minced meat (Crespelle di ricotta, funghi e carne macinata).

For the main entrée, Italian-style rice with fresh mushrooms, parmesan cheese and truffle oil; Seared chicken fillet in orange sauce; Pork fillet in herb salt; and Grilled fish fillet with cherry tomatoes, olives, capers and fresh thymes were served, finished with a dessert, Chocolate souffle with creamy white sauce. I love the bitter-sweet taste with the right moisture of this cupcake, complemented with sweetness of its creamy white sauce.

And finally, what  really made our tummies full is  a delicious shrimps pizza on a thin and crispy crust that tastes like a veggie cracker! Though this is not new in their menu, one of their hosts offered us to try one, hmmm, yummy!

Seafood Pizza (La Pizza di Mare)

The food-tasting event highlighted the 10 new dishes of La Piadina’s creator and head chef, Giorgio Matera, who is on a brief visit to Manila. Chef Giorgio is taking time off from his Aoyama (Piadina store) in Tokyo to introduce to Manila a new and exciting set of dishes that best capture flavourful identities of the four select regions in Italy – Puglia, Emilia Romagna, Piemonte and Toscana.

All their food is prepared and cooked in each of the outlets, NOT precooked and transported from a central kitchen. The Piadina stores are at  the 2nd Floor Glorietta IV, Ayala Center, and Ground floor Solaris One Building, 130 Dela Rosa Street, Legaspi Village, both in Makati City.

 

Alaska IronKids uphold the meaning of a true champion

DCIM100GOPRO

Cebu, Philippines- August 1 was a memorable day for our Alaska IronKids as they participate in the Alaska IronKids support Gatas for Breakfast, a practice run for a good cause. It was an enriching experience for the IronKids participants as they not only practiced running with the Ironman Pros like Pete Jacobs, Caroline Steffen, Belinda Granger, and Alaska Tri-Aspire Team Coach Mat O’Halloran, Banjo Norte and Jenny Guerrero, they also shared a nutritious breakfast with milk to  over 1,500 young students of Mactan Elementary School. This effort to foster a healthy consciousness among individuals and families—through the combination of exercise and proper nutrition—is Alaska’s way in helping fight against the increasing number of overweight and undernourished children in the country. Having a healthy and active lifestyle does not only involve physical activity but also proper nutrition, living up to Alaska’s key meesage, Nutrition.Action.Champion.

Salice Eyewear: Italian craftsmanship on Philippine terrain

salice

There’s a new style that’s been making waves and ruling the podium of late, and its name is Salice!

Designed and crafted in Italy, Salice (“Sa-Li-Che”) combines function and fashion in a distinctly European look. Local athletes that have been seen sporting a pair include Filipino Elite Triathletes August Benedicto and Kim Mangrobang. Known international product ambassadors include the likes of professional cycling world champion Alberto Rui Costa, cross-country skier Renato Pasini, sprint canoer Antonio Rossi and former professional cycling champion Alessandro Petacchi.

The backstory of Salice’s performance lenses is one of time-tested durability. In 1919, the Italian company initially manufactured heavy-duty goggles and sunglasses for industrial and military use. As the popularity of Vespa and Lambretta motorbikes grew in the post-war years, the expanded demand prompted the company to launch its own line of glasses for bikers and skiers.

The Salice range currently includes sport-specific models for motocross, skiing, cycling, running, triathlon, and many other adrenaline-intensive activities, as well as leisure-oriented models for more laid-back pursuits.

 

All Salice models are built to withstand hard training, with all lenses having 100% protection against  UVA, B, and C rays that easily penetrate regular lenses and cause severe damage to the eyes.

Aside from the UVA400 rating, the lenses come in a range of colors that merge aesthetics and added function. The Polarflex lens, for example offers greater visual contrast while the Chromolex lens changes color to sync with the surrounding light conditions. Even the basic lenses are mirrored, wide enough to block out grit and dust, and have anti-fog vents.  Salice frames are characterized by a wraparound design with a soft nosepiece that firmly keeps them in place even during intense activity.

Salice eyewear is priced from P4,800 to P14,800.

Test this piece of European craftsmanship on Philippine terrain yourself! Salice is available at The Brick Multisport Store (McKinley Hill; Cebu), Bike King, R.O.X., Primo Cycles, Secondwind Running Store (Greenhills; Ortigas; Quezon City), Specialized Concept Store, RUNNR (BHS; ATC; Toby’s MOA; Toby’s Shangri-la), Planet Sports (BHS; ATC), The Athlete’s Foot (Two Parkade), Epic Cycles Alabang, Nothing but Water Boracay, and Bike Town Cyclery.

 

Zensah Compression Gear: A Runner’s Best Friend

ZENSAH LOGO 1

Manila, Philippines / July 9, 2014 – As the demand for quality sports wear increases, runners and athletes of all ages are now on the look-out for new and effective ways to improve their performance, whether it’s by using specialized running shoes or by donning ultra-aerodynamic garments. But now, with the introduction of seamless compression gear from Zensah, one of the world’s leading compression sportswear brands, runners from all over the Philippines can now enjoy the full benefits that quality compression gear has to offer.

ZENSAH SHOOT (4)

For many runners, injury and muscle fatigue can be a problem, especially when they’ve been training long and hard for events like 5Ks and full marathons. Despite having the energy and the willpower to go on running, sometimes the pain can be too much, which is why having the right gear is of utmost importance. As the old adage goes, “The best defense is a good offense,” and when it comes to keeping you injury-free, compression gear is your best bet.

For the uninitiated, compression garments provide support for the body by applying varying degrees of compression to it. It keeps the muscles warm, thus preventing strain and muscle fatigue. And by wicking moisture away from the skin, it also effectively prevents chafing and rashes, that can cause blistering, which can slow you down.

So, whether you’ve just started the habit or are a lifelong runner, here are some things you should know about how Zensah compression-wear can benefit you:

Improves blood circulation - For more than half a century now, compression garments have been used in treating illnesses like diabetes, edema (swelling of the ankles, feet, and legs), and deep vein thrombosis by improving blood circulation, bringing valuable oxygen to those hard-working muscles and increasing blood flow.

Reduces recovery time - By improving blood flow, compression gear speeds up the removal of metabolic waste, thus reducing the presence of lactic acid in the body. If you’ve ever experienced pain and cramping the day after a particularly grueling workout, lactic acid is the culprit. It’s a by-product produced during exercise or any kind of strenuous activity that contributes to muscle soreness and fatigue. Zensah compression leg sleeves effectively decrease the dreaded delayed onset muscle soreness or DOMS, so you can hit the pavement when you want to, without having to wait for muscle fatigue to wear off.

Prevents injury - Compression leg sleeves support the calf in a way that regular socks don’t; through graduated compression, the muscles in the calf and shin are compressed, reducing the damage caused by continuous movement and impact from long-distance running. Shin splints are a common injury for many runners. With Zensah leg sleeves, you’ll be able to get instant relief from a debilitating, and inconvenient, injury.

Provides the perfect ergonomic fit - Zensah leg sleeves are engineered with chevron and micro ribbing which provides support for the calf muscle and minimizes fatigue, while Zensah Tech+ compression socks employ ultra-zone ribbing that improve ankle and arch stability ensuring a better, more comfortable run.

Zensah compression leg sleeves and Tech+ compression socks are the ultimate in athletic apparel, and are guaranteed to keep you comfortable and injury-free throughout every run.

Zensah compression-wear is now available in the following outlets: Runnr, Planet Sports, R.O.X., Arena.
