Sunday Morning with Piolo and Manny at the TIMEX RUN, Sunday afternoon with family at the Global Pinoy Bazaar

One of the perks of being a Timex athlete, aside from getting really cool Timex gear, is meeting other Timex athletes!  Me and my gal pals Tessa Leana Lara and Lea were bent on having a blast for this particular run, and we did…. and we even saw other Timex athletes on the road, like Team Timex, Coach Rio, Polo Tri, and, ahem.. Piolo Pascual.  Not a bad deal eh?

To make the morning even more awesome, we watched the Manny Pacquiao-Miguel Cotto fight in the Timex tent with other runners.  It was my first time to watch a boxing match with so many other people, I didn’t realize how much fun it was!  Met new friends as well, like DJ Hilary of 88.3 and Leo, whom I always see running in Ultra but was never introduced to.  Manny outdid himself and claimed his seventh world title, and I could feel the whole tent bursting with Pinoy Pride.

After this I crossed EDSA to meet up with my family at the Global Pinoy Bazaar at the Rockwell Tent.  It was a great collection of Filipino Made products at bargain prices.  Kudos to Yabang Pinoy for putting up a splendid display!  Pinoy Pride, indeed was the order of the day. I love it!

TIMEX RUN 2009 UPDATE

Hello Timex Runners! With the holidays fast approaching, more and more events are being scheduled in Bonifacio Global City. Based on our recent meeting with Fort Bonifacio Development Corporation, we have been advised that fun run events scheduled in the next coming months will have to be slightly relocated in order to accommodate other events. In line with this, we would like to inform everyone that there will be some minor changes with regards to the location of the start/finish area and the 3km race route of the 2009 Timex Run. Please take note that the start/finish area has been moved from 8th Avenue to 28th Avenue. This is the same set up as the Adidas King of the Road held last October 25. Rest assured that although there will be some rerouting with regards to the 3km race route, this minor adjustment will not greatly affect that of the other distances. To view the updated route maps for 3km, 5km, 10km, and 21km, please visit http://www.runrio.com. Our apologies for any inconvenience this might cause. Thank you for your kind understanding. Sincerely, Coach Rio
