If there is one thing that an athlete should aspire is to better himself in the sport that he loves, and if there is anything else my brother and I share than the interest in music and running, it would be the joy of reading how Filipinos are able to conquer trials from day to day work to international competitions.
Was checking my mail, received an email from Arra Galang of Media Contacts Inc., and read about the news of our fellow Filipinos joining the Xterra Tri-Outs, World Championship, in Maui!
As found in their website, “XTERRA Trail Runs remind you it’s more fun to run off-road. Hop across rocks, soar across streams, zig-zag your way along a mountain trail. Be a kid again and rediscover your super-charged sense of adventure and wonder. XTERRA hosts Trail Run races in major cities across the country. Proceeds from each benefit local charities.”
For them to be sent there and represent our country makes me definitely more proud to be a Filipino! Check out Redg Plopinio, Hector Yuzon, Noy, Matteo, and Drew below and a closer look at the Sterra Tri-Outs World Championship through a video link of their journey from Training to Competing in Maui.
Last, but not the least: I would also like to say that Xterra reminds and encourages us to trail run and have fun. The most important part of it is for us to live more. Yeah!
