Re-post: Making Things Happen as a PF Community-JeepneED

As a proud PF community member, I would like to share/re-post this article from the website.


Last August 2011 when Pinoy Fitness launched the first version of the Technical Shirt aimed to support education, we decided to support JeepneED! Now after 3 months I am very proud to show you guys the Jeep that we all together funded!


The Jeep was for Sarangani and the symbolic key was just recently been turned over (Nov. 14, 2011) to Governor Migs Dominquez by Shaina Tantuico (left) and Erika Pineda (2nd left) at the flag racing ceremory at the Capitol. You can check out the full story at the Official Website of the Province of Sarangani.


Now look at how nicely the Pinoy Fitness logo was placed at the side of the Jeep! But more importantly it’s going to be a symbol how each and everyone who supported the tech shirt helped and will continually help to uplift the education of the students in Sarangani.


This Magic School Bus is equipped with 10 netbooks, 3G hub for internet connectivity, printer and scanner, projector and other basic science materials for a community of five public schools in the province!

This might not be as big as Cleaning the Pasig River or Saving the Dolphins, but it’s a start right!? As a small community we can make a small difference, imagine what we can do as we grow bigger. Hoping for everyone’s continuous support!

My Advance Birthday Gift - NB MR770 Running Shoes!

Last October 20, 2011, I purchased my advance birthday gift for myself at New Balance Shangri-la Plaza Mall. And it's an NB MR770GR running shoes!

This is stability shoes because I am an overpronator. I got a 9 1/2 size so that it can give enough room for my toes, my regular shoe size is 8 1/2- 9 inches. I just still have some problem with my wide feet.

Since purchased, I have already accumulated at least 50 kilometers mileage with my new running shoes. Longest of which is during the 21K/32K LSD run organized by OK OK Runners last October 30th at the Kilometer Zero, Rizal Park to MOA and into the old walled city of Intramuros.

During that LSD, I still suffered some runner's toe injuries but I am hoping that as I use more my NB's I will get rid of that kind of toe injuries.

As also I will be using my new NB's in my upcoming 32KM run at the Run United leg 3 on November 13th, and also for my upcoming full marathon which maybe next year.

My special thanks to Roxanne for the NB gift voucher which gave me 1000 pesos discount. And to all who have supported my love for running through the years.

See you on the road guys and girls!
