Random Shots at Unicef Heroes for Children Run

I’ve been telling a lot of runners to check this site for pictures of them that might be included for posting. Whenever I’ve been asked: “Saan po makikita yan?” (“Where can I see the photo?”), “This is for Gatorade documentation, but you can visit my site to see if your photos will be posted.”, is my repetitive answer. Apologies to those runners who really wanted to see their pictures but found nothing here. As mentioned in my “About” page, I’m a very busy singing daddy of four children, with sideline jobs to make both ends meet. In as much as I would like to please you, I have too little time left everyday to edit, resize and upload great number of photos to your pleasing.😦

But wait, luckily, I have free time just for now after a combined 2 weeks of rigid technical training and certification and some subject tutorials for my kid here and busy relocating to our new office there. After baking our food and having dinner, I will upload some photos before I go to bed. Actually, I’m lying on my bed now. Thank you for your understanding. We might see each other again on Run United Philippine Marathon and Gatorade Run. See y’all!

 Press Release:

Manila, August 2016 – U.S. high performance sports apparel label Under Armour celebrates U.S. National Basketball Association (NBA) superstar Stephen Curry’s outstanding season performance and second consecutive Kia NBA MVP Award with the Curry MVP Back 2 Back Pack, containing a re-release of the Curry One MVP and a new Curry Two MVP colourway.

Curry’s impression on the sport of basketball is a lesson in the power of perseverance, through sheer will and hard work. In the 2014-2015 season, Curry impressed all by being the first player ever to hit 300 three-pointers in a season. He claimed the 2014-15 Kia NBA MVP Award for his performance and earned his first Larry O’Brien World Championship trophy. Following that, in the 2015-2016 season, he helped to lead the Golden State Warriors to the single-season record for wins, shattered his own three-point record of 400 three-pointers in a season, led the league in scoring and joined the prestigious 50-40-90 shooting club.

For his outstanding achievements, Curry earned the 2015-16 Kia NBA Most Valuable Player Award. He is the 11th player (third point guard) in league history to earn the award in back-to-back seasons.

“Stephen Curry’s impact on the game of basketball is immeasurable,” said Kip Fulks, Chief Marketing Officer, Under Armour. “His game and will to dominate is unlike anything we’ve ever seen in the NBA, and his cultural reach off the court is equally transcendent. At Under Armour we are thrilled and humbled to be alongside Stephen on this journey, and look forward to his continued perseverance in making himself a better athlete every single day.”

Commemorating the signature footwear Curry wore in the back-to-back MVP seasons, the Under Armour Curry MVP Back 2 Back Pack has sleek gold colours and design elements, reinforced by Under Armour’s innovative technology. It echoes the relentless strength and tenacity demonstrated by Curry, whose ability to hit shots off the dribble, in traffic and from incredible distance took the world by storm.
