Running Clinic @ Head Office, APL

25 08 2009

This time it was at the Head Office of the American Presidents Line (APL) located in one of the corporate buildings at the Mall of Asia (MOA) Complex. This was our 8th Running Clinic to the different Corporate Offices situated in Metro Manila.

The first part of the Running Clinic was a Lecture at the Conference Rooms of APL. It started at 3:15PM of August 17, 2009 and finished at 5:00PM. The lecture was followed with an Open Forum and there were lots of interesting questions from the participants. The questions were answered and Coach Titus Salazar initially conducted a portion of the practical exercises to be done by the participants.

The second part of the running clinic was the practical application of the basics and principle of training in running. The practical part was done at the beachfront/Seaside of the Mall Of Asia Complex. The session was led by Coach Titus Salazar and was assisted by the members of the Elite Team Bald Runner. Warm-Up and stretching exercises were done before the group was made to jog a portion of the Seaside Area. After the drills were introduced and done, the participants were made to group themselves for a team shuttle run competition. The exercises made each of the participants perspire and shed some calories. They were even taught how to pick-up/grab water cups and drink while they are on the run, a good starter for future runners joining their first road race.

 Lastly, my team encouraged the participants from the Head Office of APL to form and organize their Corporate Running Team so that they could train as a group and finally join the different weekend road races in Metro Manila.

To the APL group, thanks for the hospitality and the “freebies” you shared to the Team Bald Runner.

You know Sir Jovie, it’s getting to a point that you should have a logo to go on those shirts of yours. You are getting more and more exposure these days through the workshops and events. Always out and about and always seen.

rick, thanks for the suggestion. actually, i have a logo which is printed in my tarpaulins but your suggestion gave me the idea to have this logo printed on our shirts and the “1,000-Km Club” Finisher’s Shirts I’ve been giving away. thanks again!

Hi, Sir,

I am Pia Manzano from SPi, a Global Business Process Outsourcing Company with over 7,000 employee world wide.

In our Paranaque facility, there is a growing number of running enthusiasts in and so we, from the Employee Council and Mountaineering Club, would like to invite you to conduct a Running Clinic in our office.

We are setting up a fun run for November 8 (tentative date) and would really appreciate having a learning session before the run so the runners can have a better understanding of the sport and be properly prepared for the run.

We learned that you are also part of the rubber shoes-drive, which we would like to be a part of through the Company’s Corporate Social Responsibility arm.

Hoping for your positive feeback on this.

Thank you!

Maria Pilar R. Manzano
