Skechers GoRun (1 & 2)

Filed under: Gear reviews

(This is a 3-way review by the 3 members of TPB that currently own and run in the Skechers GoRun shoes; Joey having the original version and Mark & Kat running in version 2. Although the shoe has changed between versions, many characteristics stayed consistent and also hopefully this gives an idea of how the shoe has evolved.)

Potsdam Schlösserlauf 21K

Filed under: Race reviews

As I’m currently the only member of TPB to be residing in Europe, my race review comes from a totally different place than the others…namely Potsdam Germany. A little backdrop: I moved to Berlin in February of this year, and since then have slowly been getting back to my old running form again. It was really tough at first, since finding motivation to run out by yourself in -5 degree weather is not simple. But since then the weather has improved and I have come across a whole group of very enthusiastic, friendly and FAST (mostly ex-pat) running buddies.

Adobo Run After Dark 2011

Filed under: Events

Adobo Magazine’s annual nighttime run returns this year, once again promising lots of fun and a wide and wacky variety of Halloween costume-clad runners. A few members of TPB took part in this event last year and were even caught on camera. Look for SuperJixee, Indorock the Last Airbender, and “Salbabida” Brando (winner of Best Costume award!)

Race Review: Octoberun 2011

Filed under: Race reviews

Although TPB was initially created to compete in the 2010 Chris Sports Epic Relay, we did not manage to come home with a 1st place victory, which left the boys wanting redemption. So when MLB Road Race Specialist announced that they were reviving the October Fort Running Fest after a hiatus of 4 years, the Team was excited at the chance and determined to put forward a strong team. Because of the size of the team needed in order to compete (25), this also signaled a sudden and big growth spurt from the original 10.

UPDATE FROM RACE ORGANIZER: Due to conflicts within the race calendar, the team component of PRCC has been postponed until summer of 2012. We were looking forward to this race, but at least we will now have a few months more to train!


The first ever Pilipinas Running Clubs Challenge is coming to Baguio in November, and Team Powerpuff Boys will be there! This is a group run which will cover 21 kilometers of hilly Bagiuo roads.

New Balance Minimus Road

Filed under: Gear reviews

Following a somewhat annoying and tiring rollercoaster relationship with shin splints and calf pains for the past few months, I started having a sneaking suspicion that it might be time to replace my favourite pair of mid- to long-distance runners. My trusty and comfy Adidas Adizero Adios have pulled me through 420km of pavement pounding. That’s practically 10 full Marathons. Incidentally, my very first (albeit unofficial, during a training run) Marathon was run on these shoes, as well as my fastest 21K and 10K so far, so they do hold a special place in my heart. But the pains in my lower legs wouldn’t dissipate, no matter how much I rested, iced, or stretched them. Could new shoes be the answer?
