If you have the chance to go, don’t forget to bring with you your running shoes and your favorite pair of shorts and tee-shirt so you will be ready just in case. Here are my 5 reasons why I prefer running in France, in the home town of my dad (Périgord). Continue reading My 5 Primed Reasons Why I Prefer to Run in France “Périgord Région “!

With the 38th Milo Marathon this Sunday the 27th of July 2014 I wanted to share the many lessons I have learned in my previous 13 marathons. This will be my 4th Milo Marathon and I am glad to support the race knowing that it has been such a well respected race in the Philippines.
One day I hope to have run 65 marathons like my friend Willy Yao and I am sure I will still be learning valuable lessons then too.
13 Marathons – 13 Lessons
Marathon 1. You Have To Be Well Nourished Before and During the Marathon
I went into my first marathon with total ignorance and paid a heavy price. The Subic International Marathon 2009 (4 hours 31 minutes) was a lesson in nutrition for me as I did not eat a proper lunch before the 4pm start. I was top 30 after 32km and then I hit the wall. I did not even have any food or cash on me that day but I always do now.
Marathon 2. It Is More Fun and Rewarding to Share the Journey
I ran the Great Wall of China Marathon in 2010 in 4:49:39. We joined a Filipino contingent and made some excellent friends and had the time of our lives. Realizing how great it was to be part of a large group helped sway us to join the Melbourne Ironman 2014.
Carbonara Sauce, who does not like this classic sauce? I am sure that no one I know doesn’t enjoy the smokiness of the bacon, the earthy flavors of the mushrooms, the richness of the cream, egg and Parmesan!
All of these flavors make one of the most famous worldwide dishes …. oops did I forget to mention the pasta? Yes I did, because today it is a carbonara without the pasta. I am making it primed for you guys.
Carbonara without pasta is a dream come true for those people who want to avoid pasta?
Please, let’s get ready in your kitchen, it’s going to be fun.
“A hero is somebody who is selfless, who is generous in spirit, who just tries to give back as much as possible and help people. A hero to me is someone who saves people and who really deeply cares.”-Debi Mazar
After the heroic feats of the German World Cup football team it is time to reflect on our local heroes. They look like you and I but they are selfless and always think of others first.
Ok, I confess, I loved beer.
Previously, I could not have imagined a life without beer. Seriously, that is how much I loved the amber ale.
