Nike+ Run Club Manila (NRC) Celebrates Its First Anniversary

image

Nike+ Run Club (NRC) Manila, part of Nike’s largest and fastest growing global services platform for athletes, celebrates its first anniversary of bringing the best of Nike+ Running services and programs to athletes and runners of all levels.

“NRC connects runners of all levels to expert NRC coaches, pacers, training plans and NRC community members,” said Patrick Reyes, Country Marketing Manager, Nike Philippines. “The Nike+ Run Club Manila inspires and enables more runners to join the global running community, and is designed for first time runners, daily runners as well as race-day competitors.”

With over 13,000 runners who registered in its twice-weekly sessions, the NRC community continues to grow significantly. Led by NRC Coaches Ian Banzon, Rio dela Cruz, and Ico Ejercito, and supported by NRC Pacers, NRC sessions take place every Tuesday and Thursday, 7:34 PM, in front of the Nike Park store in BGC.

Runners must register for NRC Manila sessions prior to each running session as there are capacity limitations. NRC Manila is open to both men and women. Runners can register online for NRC sessions at nike.com/manila.

The Nike+ Run Club Philosophy

  1. We are all meant to be runners. Running doesn’t turn away anyone at the door. If we want to bring out the runner inside us, we just have to lace up and get out
  2. We are not just runners. We are athletes. It takes more than a pair of legs to be fast. It takes our entire body, mind, and unbreakable spirit.
  3. Every run has a purpose. Some days we’ll feel pushed. Some days we’ll push back. Find the meaning in every mile.
  4. Respect every workout. Fear no workout. It’s going to be hard. That’s why we love it. Respect is earned from doing the work. So get out and get after it.
  5. Embrace your weaknesses. Then erase them. With regular and consistent work, our weaknesses can become our strengths.
  6. Measure success in as many ways as you can. Not every run will be our farthest or fastest, but every run is an achievement and should be seen as such.
  7. We believe in you, even if you don’t. On days when we feel less than our best, we can always seek motivation from our community. Nike+ Run Club is here to remind us that our best is always within our reach.

My 7-Eleven Run Adventure

From the successful Run 800 in 2013, suceeded by 3 more years of fun and eventful races that attracted more fitness enthusiasts, competitive and seasonal runners; another very succesful 7-Eleven Run was staged last Sunday, February 5, 2017, that invaded the Skyway and Filinvest City.

I regret to missed experiencing last year’s super fun Run 2016.  So this year, I make sure that I would not miss the fun.  Despite of enduring knee pain for the past few weeks, I decided to run the 21K category.  

Race Day 

Excited as I was, together with my blogger friend Rolly Pangilinan, we arrived early at the race venue.  The village was already open, some tents are already serving breakfast and I love the lugaw. 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

And off we go…

At 2am, the first wave of 21k runners was deployed.  Me, Marinelle and Rolly were at the tje last wave and were deployed at 2:30.  I ran with Marinelle doing easy pace as I’m being careful with my stride and taking care of my left injured knee.  For the first kilometer, me, Nhel and Rolly are running togrther but at the 4th kilometer I am running by myself.  Running alone makes me more keen on my pace and how’s my left knee doing.  Fortunately, the route was perfectly planned – hydration every 1.5 km with overflowing water, Pocari, Gatorade and bananas.  One big help for the runners are the marshalls situated every 2 kilometers (I think), offering liniment spray for those who need them.  Kudos to the organizer for that.  That’s a really big help to us.

At the last 6-km mark, I am feeling a little pain from my knee coming up at the side of my hips.  Luckily, I bumped into Nhel again.  I decided to do a run-walk system.  Gladly, I’m wearing my Nike Zonal Strength tight and Under Armour Charged Bandit running shoes, they really gave me proper support and comfort throughout the race.  I was already limping in the last kilometer but hey, I have to smile as there are photographers along the last 200 meters.  We crossed the finished line tired but happy.  What a well-planned race route.

At the event village

After we crossed the finish line and got our finisher’s loot bags, I look for Rolly and met some of my friends and we rome around the village.  The village is full of happy people despite of being tired from running, especially the 24K runners.  We are the happiest runners that day.  We swam on freebies – tumblers, biscuits, juice, donuts, ice cream, etc, etc, etc!

Top finishers won cash prizes and medals for the winners,  and also the chance to join an international marathon in Asia. But the the rest of the runners, including me, are all winners.  Winner to the max sa freebies!  

I really had a blast despite of suffering ITBS.  I am so happy to see all my friends.  

Thank you so much 7-Eleven Philippines for such a wonderful race.  You made all the runners happy.  Congratulations and more power.
