A new year, a new life, a new team…

I am on the other side of the world right now, and when this happens I have this rare chance to stop and reflect on my life from an outsider’s perspective…sort of, as I am removed from my usual routine.  I guess there are some significant changes I have been going through, including but not exclusive to: getting married, moving out of the city, and starting the season with a new team.

Sometimes I wonder how I ever got so lucky–blessed with good health, family, friends, work that I actually love.  Now I have the chance to be part of  Timex Multisport Team and all I can say is that IT IS AWESOME!!! I showed up at camp a rookie and not knowing anyone in the team except for kiwi Keegan Williams but he wasn’t even able to make it to NJ as he was racing (he won 1st overall btw!).  Before meeting everyone I had this insecurity of not being good enough for such a solid group of athletes and a real winning team…but I was reminded by Tristan and the other girls at camp that we were chosen to be Timex Ambassadors for various reasons, athletic performance being only one of them, so I relaxed a bit more.  Timex took such good care of us (i.e. we were well-fed) and the venues we had were topnotch…Timex Performance Center and NY Giants Stadium–seriously!

Leaving the camp, I wrote an email to everyone in the group, wherein I said:

….I would just like to say thank you to Timex and the entire team for such an incredible weekend!  I must say that I was not really sure what to expect coming here and on my looong flight back home i hope the passengers beside me will be asleep as I will be smiling to myself the whole time (this, and maybe inspecting some of my swag) recounting the whole camp experience in my mind.

I am very happy to be a new member of this family, and if any one of you ever considers racing in my part of the world, you have a homestay with us. Have a safe trip back home everyone!
Love Ani

Special thanks to Gemma, Avi, and Jewel of Timex Philippines for helping me get in the team and supporting me always. And to Princess and Neville + et al for taking care of the Ironkids Run Race on my behalf and to my sister Sinag and Waya for taking care of wedding stuff while I was away. Pasalubong for you guys!  And to Dan–on my way home soon, promise!

SUBIT 2010 Subic International Triathlon

I love Subic, I have so many memories here, both good and painful… it is a place special to Filipino triathletes, it has seen the sport grow so much throughout the years. Subic International Triathlon is part of the ITU Asia Cup Series and hosts the Age Group Team Championships.  Am super happy to report that my age group team, Fitness First has won the coveted crown again!  It was really fun to see all the team colors on the race course though, and at the end of the day you do end up cheering for each and everyone of your friends regardless of affiliation. What a weekend!!!

Photo Credits go to JC Manas, Doray Ellis, Redg Plopinio, Timmy de los Reyes… and if for some reason I grabbed your pic from Facebook and forgot to acknowledge it my apologies!!!
