Yesterday, I received an email from Karina, a friend from Chinatrust, inviting me to register and join the Alaska World Milk Day Run scheduled for June 9, 2013 at Bonifacio Global City.
- Bicolano Penguin
- I am Vicente M. de Lima II. My family call me "Vicboy" but here in Manila, my nickname became "Macky". Why Bicolano Penguin? I am a Bicolano by birth and choice. By any standards, I am a slow runner, but I like it that way. I like to read books, too. The writings of John "The Penguin" Bingham, Jeff Galloway, and Christopher McDougall have inspired me. Local running blogs that I follow have been instrumental in encouraging me to run more. I look at running as a healthy and exciting way to make a difference. Together with my fellow runners from Ateneo de Naga HS Class of 1983, First Balfour, LCA 8379, and Bagobos83, hopefully, we use running to give back to the community.

"Going against the grain."
This phrase defines the contrarian, a person who takes up a position opposed to that of the majority, regardless of how unpopular it may be at the start.

My nephew Stefan and niece Mai Mai just got back from their week-long vacation in Japan and they gave me a pasalubong I truly like and will use in my running adventures in this tropical and humid country of ours.
Our string of good fortune in Minalabac last May 4 did not end with the adventure run to the white pebble beach of Bagolatao.

In one of my very first articles(http://www.bicolanopenguin.blogspot.com/2011/11/our-bicol-our-home-our-un.html#more)in this running blog, I expressed the "commitment" to run as much as I could in my native Bicol.

Friday is a favorite day. It is the dawn of the weekend which embodies fun, play and rest. That is why we have the universal saying "Thank God It’s Friday."

Last April 24, I was again invited by “Kulit on the Run” (http://kulitrunner.wordpress.com/) to another Bloggers’ event at Bonifacio High Street in Taguig. This time it was about the launch of the Enervon Activ Hydration Belt Promo.

A day after our April 22 Boston Strong Muntinlupa run in Filinvest City, Alabang, I was informed by my fellow 83nean Ric Lozano that a trio of his running buddies (Joji Asis, Lito Atento and Gary Castillo) and he went on a run to show their support for the Boston Marathon.
1. The Claiming of Packets two days before the actual run of April 21, 2013 was hassle-free with a festive atmosphere. Plus Zoot and 2XU were selling items at discounted price. This was a case of good “foreplay.”
