Good Things Come In Twos

meBananarunning is Two!

Two – Marathons I raced this year; Two also – Marathons I ran as my long run this year. Funny thing is that I did better on the marathons I did as “long runs”.

Two – Kinds of races this year: with water and without water … you know. I always bring my own hydration in races over 10K. Saved me a lot of times.

Two – Things I learned too late in life. You can use math in real life and sunblock is really good for you.

Two – My favorite running frills – BodyGlide and GU Roctane.

Two – Ways this blog helped me give back and pay forward 

  • 1 – G and I picked a runner and we will be gifting the runner a new pair of rubber shoes and race reg at the end of the month. His grand gesture made me smile when I was really feeling down. Stay tuned. 
  • 2 – To date, the 5 teams in Nike+ Human Race Ph Ambassadors Challege (Bananarunning, Steadylang, Reema’s Road Racers, Tatanka and Weekend Road Warriors) raced and raised Php 91,638 for Gawad Kalinga’s ‘Walang Iwanan’ program. This will provide relief and clean-up work for the nine GK sites ravaged by typhoon Ondoy.  

Special mention to all runners who signed up under Team Bananarunning! You guys rocked and racked up kms for a good cause. (Help! I would love to put all your names here but I couldn’t access the full list. Help!)

Two – Exciting things coming up this year. December and January stay tuned!

Thank you all for dropping-by. Many happy runs to all!
