Yoga Wednesday

16 Apr

20140416-163019.jpg
I woke up late for the gentle yoga class today. To make up for it, I did an easy 60min vinyasa using Nathan Johnson’s podcast. Very relaxing.

I really needed it coz I did weights Monday and Tuesday and my whole body felt really tight.

If you’ve attended a few yoga classes already, Nathan’s podcasts are really easy to follow. Love it.

You can check it out here or search him in iTunes.

Have a meaningful Holy Week!

Jr NBA Selection Camp

2 Apr

20140402-074144.jpg
400 young girls and boys showcased their basketball skills during the Jr. NBA/Jr. WNBA presented by Alaska in Iloilo last Mar. 15 & 16. 6 boys and 3 girls were the top pick to join the National Training Camp in Manila on April.

The Food and Nutrition Research Institute (FNRI) study revealed that obesity, which can lead to serious heart problems and diabetes at a young age is becoming one of the most prevalent nutritional problems of Filipino children and adults.

Given these growing issues on health, Alaska continues their partnership with Jr. NBA this year to nurture young boys, and girls, become better individuals and encourage them to embrace a healthy lifestyle not just by drinking milk but also by leading an active lifestyle through sports.

The 2014 Jr.NBA presented by Alaska, the international youth development program of the NBA, formally launched last January 18. School clinics were conducted allowing aspiring champions in the country to be part of NBA’s international youth development program. Young girls were given the same trainings and opportunities as Jr. NBA participants because in these modern times, girls are just as interested in sports, especially basketball, as the boys. Led by some of the best local basketball coaches, like Jojo Lastimosa, PBA legend and Alaska Head of Basketball Operations, together with the NBA coaches led by Sefu Bernard in travelling all over the country to conduct school clinics for coaches and players.

Our aspiring champions will again undergo series of trainings at the Regional Selection Camp (RSC) in Surigao, Iloilo, Cebu, Dagupan, Palawan and Manila. The RSC is where the best of the best players in key cities will be selected and asked to participate in the third and climactic part of the program – the National Training Camp (NTC).

The 10 young boys and 5 young girls of Jr. NBA/Jr. WNBA presented by Alaska All-Star Philippine Team will be chosen at the end of the NTC. These young champions will then be given the ultimate NBA experience by getting the chance to watch a live NBA game and meet the NBA players. Last year, the Jr. NBA All-Star Philippine team watched a Los Angeles Lakers home game against the Memphis Grizzlies at the Staples Center and met NBA superstar Kobe Bryant.

The Jr. NBA/ Jr. WNBA presented by Alaska, is just one of Alaska’s Sports Development Program that inspires children to become future champions through teaching them skills to play the game while incorporating the values of determination, hard work, teamwork, discipline and sportsmanship.

Become a champion too and join Alaska’s sports programs now!
Come out and play!

Outbreak…I’m afraid!

2 Apr

J wanted to check out the Outbreak Manila mania so we all decided to join her. J and run are words only strung in a sentence when accompanied by the words DON’T, WON’T and CAN’T. So when she asked us to join her immediate said yes. Until she said zombies.

Nah, I’m not really afraid of them. But I don’t like getting startled and chased. I hope I don’t smack any of them.

Btw, just heard that you are in the first 2 waves, you’re in for a small treat. Read on.

20140402-072019.jpg
Zombies will once again invade the metro, this time inside the walls of the majestic Intramuros. Touted as Operation Stronghold, the mission of this Outbreak is to free Dr. Alfonso Adarna from the evil fanatical band of brothers. It’s the familiar fear but with a whole new level of terror presented by the brotherhood, all within the intricate interiors of the famed walled city. It’s an Outbreak like you’ve never seen before!

Giving runners the hydration to help them complete their mission is Summit Natural Drinking Water, while Nestea in a Bottle will be there to refresh the first 2 waves of the run.

Reserve your strength, save the date, and sign up for the mission, happening on April 5. For more information, visit http://www.outbreakmanila.com and like Summit and Nestea Philippines on Facebook

What if everybody ran?

Day 27 : Ran

Ran to SM Aura today to register for NatGeo run. It was cool today. Left the house at about 7ish so I knew I had enough time to get to Aura before reg booth closes at 9pm.

Easy and relax run for me. Registering was easy as well. And they take your photo pa after.

I heard some people asking for the longer distances. I know, I know…longer distances are way sexier and better for bragging rights plus you get a cool finisher’s shirt pa.

But …

If there is one race that you should consider stepping down to 5K, I say this is it because…

In 2014, NGC promises to raise money for WWF’s Bancas for the Philippines project. This project aims to train fishermen affected by Typhoon Yolanda last November 2013 in making and using fiberglass boats for artisanal fishing. These boats are designed to withstand the onslaught of typhoons to ensure that the fishermen can continue with their livelihood.

They still need our help. Just because it is no longer in the news, it doesn’t mean that all is okay and back to normal. Let’s all do our share.

So tara, 5K na tayo!
