Who’s running at the Globe Run for Home 4 this Sunday?

Posted in Other Sports

I’m taking the time off from volleyball for now after I injured my back last week with the Thursday Volleyball Madness group. It was so painful I couldn’t bend over to tie my shoe laces nor sit upright without grinning in pain. This scared me so I decided to go to the doctor at the Marikina Orthopedic Clinic. Fortunately, no fracture or anything severe. It was just a case of pulled back muscle or something. I just needed Cataflam and this other medicine that knocks me off in seconds, and a few weeks of rest = no volleyball.

Because of that injury, I wasn’t really able to do any serious practice runs in preparation for the first ever race event to use disposable electronic timing chipsGlobe Run for Home on July 19.

The Condura Run 2009: Run for the Whale Sharks

Posted in Other Sports

The Condura Run 2009 I have already done my water therapy the whole day today in preparation. Tomorrow, I’ll be running for the benefit of the whale sharks! The Condura Run 2009 is happening tomorrow (March 22, 2009 Sunday) at Bonifacio Global Open Grounds, Taguig City. At first I fancied joining the 21k half marathon main event, but just when I was about to complete the registration form and was about to check the box of my choice, I came to my senses. I figured I’ll be killing myself like what I did the last time just running the 10km event given that I’m as heavy as a whale shark. And so I ended up signing up for the 5-kilometer run instead. I’m sure the whale sharks wouldn’t mind.

Time for me to sleep now. Wish me luck. I’ll be race bib# 6791.

Hope In Motion Fun Run (and Fun Walk) on October 5, 2008

Posted in Other News, Other Sports

After playing volleyball in Club650 last Saturday (we lost to Team Rockwell), I got so tired I said to myself I gotta do something to get back in shape. It was a tough game but the problem was, I only played for a single set and yet, I felt so exhausted. So that’s why I’m trying to make it a point to run at least 3 times a week. Running is an excellent cardiovascular workout.

After completing my first 10k marathon during the Nike Human Race event last month, I’m itching to join another running event just for fun. So next weekend, I’ll be playing volleyball on Saturday then (if time permits) will be joining the Hope In Motion 3 event the following day.

One Child. One Friend. One Movement.

Hope In Motion 3 is a fund raising event for the benefit of orphaned and homeless children. This event is being organized by a non-profit organization called SOS Children’s Villages. Here are the details:

Completing my first 10K run at the Nike Human Race event

Posted in Other Sports

What the hell was I thinking when I decided to join The Human Race 10K event by Nike!!? I used to join fun run events back in high school but that was for 2.5 and occasional 5-kilometer fun run events only. Never did I expect to last a 10-kilometer race.

Jersey Haven’s “All-Star” Hoopla

Posted in Other Sports, Other Volleyball Sites

Okay, so I made a gamble when I ordered 3 Rachel Ann Daquis and 3 Charo Soriano authentic Shakey’s V-League Accel jerseys from Jersey Haven before V-League Season 5 started. I just thought of buying jerseys to raffle it off over here at Spikeithard just in time for the Finals. So back then I was hoping for an Ateneo-FEU finals. I guess we’ll have to hold onto the Daquis jerseys for now.

Will think of a raffle-gimmick first then blog about it maybe by tonight. So check back again here at Spikeithard.com blog soon. Will really, really also try my best to have the jerseys autographed by Ms. Charo Soriano herself first before we raffle it off. So who wants a Charo Soriano authentic Shakey’s V-League jersey courtesy of Spikeithard.com blog?

As most of you guys know, Jersey Haven is where you can get authentic Accel jerseys. They’ve got all the sports covered from PBA, UAAP basketball and volleyball, Shakey’s V-League, RP Team, and practically all other local tournament where Accel is the official outfitter.
