Running after Dark

Last night, I was treated to my very first night race. The Adobo Run After Dark. I really don't know how to prepare for a night run, since morning runs have you a bit groggy and sleepy before the race starts, while night runs have you tired and exhausted before the race starts.

So yeah, there I was, after MBA Classes and  basically lifting my trusty Celtics backpack with 30 pounds worth of stuff through various trips at the LRT and MOA. Also, the driver forgot to bring my gym bag containing important stuff like the Hydration belt, Petroleum jelly and Bodivance. At the venue, they gave us Iced coffee before the race. I was a bit weary  because I just drank Sting Lime  a few minutes ago. When the event finally started, there was a festive carnival-like entrance to greet the runners, I was surprised that the 3k had already started. We then lined up for the 5k run, had a few speeches from the beneficiaries and ran. The fatigue from the day's work clocked in a bit and there was a little bit of cramping and stomach cramps. After a while, the pain disappeared and I was able to catch up towards the last 2 kms.

In the end, I clocked in at 29:35. a bit far from my PR last April but still good to finally break the sub 30 for 5k . I still don't know my rank but it was enough for the top 500 finisher's medals.

As a bonus, before coming to the race, I was able to cop some good reads from the Sale at NBS and Fully Booked MOA branches.

Bow Down to the King!

King of the Road
Just finished the 16.8k distance of KOTR yesterday (I did not use the singlet because I did not like the color). I finally got my 12 medal goal for the year. But since there's still more than 2 months left, I signed for 3 more races (2 of them half Marathons).

The good points of the race

- UP Cheerios

The bad points of the race

-Initial offer of credit card / online transaction exclusive payment
-Inability to Select preffered Singlet color (Dumb Move)

DLSU Centennial Jackets, Adidas vs Nike

Today, we take a look at the 2 DLSU Centennial Jackets made by two of the world's leading sporting brands. Because, at the midst of its centennial year, the Shield of green and white switched sides from the 3 stripes, to the Swoosh.

Nike DLSU Centennial Jacket


The DLSU Nike Centennial Jacket was not released commerically but made available only thru its varsity players. The design is similar to the Commercially released 2010 Smart Gilas Team Pilipinas, 2010 USA Fiba Worlds, 2010 Ateneo and 2010 FEU Jackets. It features a Square outline pattern which runs from the sleeve area up to the chest. The upper chest part bears the school logo and the swoosh mark.


The back design bears your generic placements of the Green Archer logo just under the nape area and the big script seen at the back. What makes this different from the other UAAP/ National Team Nike jackets is the sublimated patch at the back which also bears 3 additional logos.


The logos contain the School seal and the two centennial logos, a text based one, and a silhouette of St, John Baptist De la Salle. The Sublimated Patch is then sewn at the back.


Adidas DLSU Centennial Jacket


Unlike the Nike Released Counterpart, The Adidas DLSU Centennial Jacket was commercially released with most of the sizes completely sold out. As of now, there were still some which made it to the markdown, Albeit with extreme sizes such as Women's XS and Men's XXL Left.


The Jackets were released in cream white and green colorways and featured the centennial logo proudly displayed at the back. The print is big and occupies at least the lower 3/4 of the jacket.


The front design features the Adidas logo and DLSU Star. Side Design is made up of the trademark 3 stripes and followed by black accents at the neck collar, sleeves and the waistline.


Overall, the 3 stripes win by a hairline.

Classic with a Modern Twist


A beloved classic will always stay relevant, but with the way the world is moving forward, even classics need a makeover now and again. Converse is definitely not sitting on its laurels as it presents a new look for an old favorite!


Think flight when you lay your eyes on the newest style to come from the creative minds of the Converse shoe laboratory as they are possibly the lightest shoes in the world at 7.2 oz!


Breathable and lightweight, the all new Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Modern features an aero-dynamic look complete with a streamlined all mesh upper, color-coordinated toe caps, two toned outsoles and the undeniable Chuck Taylor detailing that generations spanning more than a hundred years had, and still, love. Clean and crisp, released in vibrant hues of runner yellow, victoria blue, classic green and high risk for the more adventurous, the eye-popping combination of black/purple, charcoal/pink and white/high risk for the fashion rebels, and the classic black/white for the diehard fan all for P 3,150.


There’s more to love as the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Modern also comes in nylon and suede combination uppers featuring more laidback colorways for the executive who wants to rock their Chucks at the office. Choose from the combination of black/egret, candied ginger/dress blues, dress blues/egret, and dusky olive/egret for P 3,150.


Dress creatively, mix fashion and function and let the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Modern be the next staple in your wardrobe. Find these and more hip styles only at Converse and don’t forget to look us up on Facebook (Converse Philippines) or visit our website at

PBA Atin to Retro Jersey Launch

Last September 30, 2011 at the Robinsons Galleria, The PBA finally launched its limited edition retro jersey line for the fans. Legends, Current Players, Jersey collectors and longtime fans flocked the sports loop. All 25 greatest players of the PBA were immortalized thru their jerseys during the event.

While the designs were still open for improvement and  It really took a long while before the PBA finally produced the Jerseys Albeit, in limited numbers. It is a big step for the underground basketball jersey collectors and longtime fans of the PBA alike.


I really wanted to cop the Aerial Voyager's 1995 Sunkist Jersey, Sadly they did not have stocks available. Instead, I grabbed Ricky Brown's Great taste Jersey.


Legends were there to sign autographs for the fans.

Mission Accomplished!
