Bataan Death March Ultramarathon 2013 Edition
- Dennis might have been DQed on the recent BDM 102 for not meeting the 17-hour cutoff, but I salute him for still finishing what he started. Next year, he'll have his revenge.
7. Kulit Runner
Measurement of a Celebrity
6. Pambansang Legs
- I remember the term "payola" being frequently mentioned by bloggers when I first got invited on running event launches. Eman wrote his sentiments on bloggers being accused of being paid just to attend.

4. The Bull Runner
- Jaymie Pizarro's post on the first ever TBR Dream Marathon. This inspired me to join and register for the 2011 edition, wherein I wasn't able to run due to a 3-month business trip. TBRDM became a sought-after event for marathon virgins and second-timers.
3. Life Begins at 50
Living the Dream in Nuvali (TBR Dream Marathon in Pictures)
Tokyo Marathon 2012
- My running idol, Patrick Concepcion, did the Tokyo Marathon last 2012. This post inspired me to push my luck this 2013 and run in one of the best marathon destinations in the world.
Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon: My 2nd Full Marathon
- Jinoe's blow-by-blow account of his Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon experience. By the time I got to reading the part when he was sprinting to make it to the cut-off, I was literally gasping for air. That's how effective his post was.
Thank God for bloggers who inspire!
