Men's Health Philippines Urbanathlon & Festival 2008
Ahhh... The breeze of nature in the campus of UP Diliman. The place where the 2nd Men's Health Philippines Urbanathlon & Festival will be held. This is also my second participation in Men's Health Philippines' organized running event, and my second run since I've joined the corporate world. This time, I was able to form two groups with four members each, all composed of my officemates.
The Men's Health Urbanathlon & Festival is a one of a kind event, where not only your endurance limits is tested, but also your skills in surpassing the obstacles along the way. The obstacles includes the Road Block or series of obstacles with height of around 2 feet; the Car Traffic; Marine Hurdles which is around 3.5 feet in height; Crawl; Planks where you have to pass over it while balancing; Move through the parked Pick-ups by getting over; and the wall climb which stand around 8 feet.
The registration fee is only P300.00 with freebies such as a dri-fit shirt (with printed event name); knapsack bag; Cherifer premium vitamin sample; Snickers chocolate (though my kit doesn't have one, so unlucky). The freebies didn't end there since after the race, there's still a line of foods in the stalls free for the runners.

I belong to the populace of "Jack of all trades, master of NONE!". Blogging has become my literary outlet of my unspoken ideas and some of my personal activities and experiences whenever I have time to blog. I am a Programmer by Profession and a human at heart! Outdoors is my first love when I was yet a small child, bearing the heavy weight of asthma. Thus, it is also the outdoors that greatly healed my health burden. Now I am active in running, mountain climbing, biking, hiking, and some martial arts whenever time permits.
