Veteran runners Eric Panique and Luisa Raterta made headlines as they grabbed the top spots in the 42K centerpiece event at the 39th National MILO Marathon Manila qualifying leg on Sunday.

In the men’s division, Panique outpaced his rivals, beating them with a time of 02:37:44. Mario Maglinao (02:39:47) followed in second place, while Rene Desuyo (02:45:57) finished in third place.

Panique trained with 5-time MILO Marathon King Eduardo Buenavista in Baguio City to prepare for the race. Despite stiff competition from his fellow elite runners early on in the race, he persevered to move forward. “There were some runners ahead of me at the start,” shared Panique. “I increased my pace in the last six kilometers and thankfully, I was able to beat them. I am very grateful to the Lord for his guidance in helping me achieve this honor.”

In the distaff side, Luisa Raterta rose above her counterparts and topped the race with a time of 03:10:36. Rounding up the top 3 female 42K runners are Criselyn Jaro (03:25:03) in second place, and April Rose Diaz (03:34:02) in third place.

Whenever Raterte takes a break from her own personal training, she coaches aspiring runners and athletes on the street in Sta. Rosa, Laguna, to turn them away from bad vices. She revealed that she also trains her daughter. 13-year-old Leonalyn Raterta, a champion in her own right, won third place in the 5K category. “Leonalyn just finished competing in the Palarong Pambansa, and now, she won in the MILO Marathon,” shared Luisa. “She’s very dedicated to running. I always enjoy training with her and as her mother, I couldn’t be any prouder. “

The country’s biggest and most prestigious event was also graced by celebrities who are MILO Marathon regulars, including The Biggest Loser Pinoy Edition coach and MILO APEX founder Jim Saret and Toni Saret, MILO R2 ambassador and football star Tata Garcia-Long, fitness enthusiast and triathlete Kuya Kim Atienza, and avid runner Karylle Tatlonghari-Yuzon. “The race route was so beautiful because you could see the Manila Bay sunrise. The runners from the MILO community are also very friendly,” shared Karylle. “There was a group of students who stayed with me towards the end of the race. I was already a bit tired, but they waited for me to catch up and encouraged me to go on. The energy and support from everyone is the best.”

The National MILO Marathon is not only a breeding ground for local talents but also a program that empowers children nationwide. With the support of the Department of Education and the National MILO Marathon runners, MILO’s Help Gives Shoes advocacy will provide 10,000 underprivileged youth with brand new running shoes this year. MILO is working with DepEd in the selection of deserving public school student beneficiaries.

The race will resume in Calapan (August 2), before heading to Lipa (August 9), Naga (August 16), Lucena (August 30), Iloilo (September 20), Bacolod (September 27), Tagbilaran (October 4), Cebu (October 11), General Santos (October 18), Davao (November 8), Butuan (November 15), and Cagayan De Oro (November 22). The National Finals will be held on December 6 in Angeles, Pampanga.

39th MILO Marathon Balanga

MILO Marathon regulars Noel Fabros and Mary Grace Dela Torre topped the 21K centerpiece event at the 39th National MILO Marathon Balanga qualifying leg on Sunday. Over 8,000 runners joined the race, including Balanga City Mayor Joet Garcia who ran in the 5K category. This is the first year that the MILO Marathon came to Balanga, and Sunday’s running event established the record of the biggest race in the city, to date.

In the men’s division, 39-year-old Fabros beat his rivals with a time of 01:24:25. Harly Baguistan (01:24:30) and Gerald De Jesus (01:26:57) placed second and third place, respectively. Fabros, a security guard from Isabela who regularly runs with the Daruik Running Club, placed 4th in the 2013 MILO Marathon National Finals.

Fabros almost did not make it to the finish line. “At some point in the race, I felt cramps and I tripped. Everyone thought I was not going to make it,” shared Fabros. “I thought to myself, I can’t give up now, after all the training and everything I’ve been through. I pushed myself and thankfully, I won.”

In the distaff side, 19-year-old Dela Torre bested her counterparts with a time of 01:47:34. Vanessa Grace Reyes (02:10:59) followed in second place, while Lilibeth Castro (02:15:28) finished in third. Dela Torre, a varsity member of the Far Eastern University running team, was last year’s MILO Marathon Tarlac qualifying leg champion.

Both Fabros and Dela Torre have secured their slots in the National Finals and each took home the top prize of P10,000 in cash and a trophy. Both will go head-to-head with the country’s best runners at the National Finals in Angeles on December 6, where the MILO Marathon King and Queen titles are up for grabs. This year’s King and Queen will be sent by MILO to the USA on all-expense paid trips, for a chance to run in the prestigious 2016 Boston Marathon.

Sam Clayton share tips to an active lifestyle

Samantha Clayton, Herbalife’s Senior Director of Fitness Education and one of the world’s fittest mothers, and Chappy Callanta, Herbalife’s Fitness Coach, have shared during the recent Herbalife Asia Pacific Extravaganza 2015 some practical tips to overcome common issues of busy schedules and procrastination in order to kick start a healthy, active lifestyle

Get over your fear of exercise – Many people associate exercise with many negative things like sweating, exhaustion and muscle pain. The best approach is to start slow. By following a progressive approach to getting active, most will start to associate fitness with improved body composition, body confidence and feeling great.
Make it fun – When you decide that you want to start leading an active lifestyle, make sure that you choose activities that you find fun. Inviting your friends or loved ones to join the activities can make working out fun and help motivate you. This will keep you coming back for more.
Make it a habit - The amount of exercise each person needs varies but as a general guideline, in order for you to reap the simple health benefits associated with physical activity, you should aim to be active for at least 30 minutes on five days of each week.
Choose the right nutrition - Nutrition also plays a critical role leading an active lifestyle. There is a true connection between the nutrition you consume, your activity level and your overall health. A good balance would be 80% nutrition and 20% exercise.
Find a class or program - Sometimes it’s easier to stay consistent and on track when you have a structure – this can mean joining a class or group activity. At Herbalife, we have created the active Body Fit workout program – a series of exercise videos that provide repetition, gradual progression and periods of rest. You can visit these videos anytime online at http://www.herbalife24.com/active.

Whether you have five, or ten minutes, Samantha and Chappy advocate that you can kick start a healthy active lifestyle easily, with just small and simple changes to your daily lifestyle routine. Samantha and Chappy also demonstrated the following exercises, which you can complete in five or ten minutes, to keep your muscles active and in shape with little space:

Plank Walk Out: Take it down to the floor with a plank walk out – hinge at the hips then bend forward and walk out into plank and simply walk back up. Get down again, holding in plank – loosen off holding one knee to the elbows. Lift to the other side and come back up.
Opposite Leg Lifts: Come down onto the floor on all fours and make sure your shoulders are directly over your wrists, and your knees are directly under the hips. You want a nice flat back and all you are going to do is simply lift one leg and lift one arm up.
Tricep Dip: Place your feet shoulder distance apart – heels on the floor, hands behind. Lift your booty up off the floor and do a simple tricep dip by pushing the arms back. You can also do tricep dips on a workout bench, but if you are out and about, this is a great one to do because you don’t need any equipment.

39th MILO Marathon Tarlac

Eduardo “Vertek” Buenavista aced the 39th National MILO Marathon Tarlac qualifying leg on Sunday, where over 13,000 runners were present to conquer the roads. The 5-time MILO Marathon King and current MILO Marathon record holder posted a time of 01:13:19 in the 21K male division, besting his rivals Jessie Guiquing (01:21:01) and Jay Lomyog (01:21:29) who placed second and third, respectively.

In the distaff side, 26-year-old Cinderella Lorenzo, 7th placer in the 2014 MILO Marathon National Finals, proved that the intermittent rains were easy to overcome as she comfortably placed first with a time of 01:34:59. Shane Acosta (01:43:51) followed in second place, while Berna Pulmano (01:49:54) finished in third.

Both Buenavista and Lorenzo have secured their slots in the National Finals, and each took home the top prize of P10,000 in cash and a trophy. Both will go head-to-head with the country’s best runners at the National Finals in Angeles on December 6, where the MILO Marathon King and Queen titles are up for grabs. This year’s King and Queen will be sent by MILO to the USA on all-expense paid trips, for a chance to run in the prestigious 2016 Boston Marathon.

The Tarlac qualifying race turned out to be a meeting of generations of champions. The 36-year-old Philippine Air Force sergeant was not the only Buenavista who made waves in the Tarlac race. His son, 14-year-old Edward Josh Buenavista, showed that he is definitely following in his father’s footsteps as he placed third in the 5K male division. “Edward is excelling in running. As a father, I couldn’t be any prouder of him. He trains with me all the time. I coach him, give him advice, and he listens to me,” shared Vertek. “He’s a member of the University of Baguio running varsity team. Like me, he really loves running, but I always remind him that he has to balance his sports with his academics. He’s a good son.”

Former MILO Marathon King and Philippine National Team member Allan Ballester was also at the race to support his eldest son, 17-year-old Alex, who showcased his running prowess as he placed fourth in the 10K male division. The passion for running is truly in the genes of this family of champions, as Allan, the head of safety and security in the organizing team of RunRio, revealed that his five other kids are set to join the MILO Marathon Lipa race. “It’s amazing to see how my love for running has been passed on the the next generation of the family. They were always in awe of how much I have achieved through running, so they persistently asked me to train them. Our training sessions are also a fun way for us to bond, and training together has made us stronger as a family,” shared Ballester. “I always tell them that there is no pressure for them to win their races. They should just enjoy what they are doing and strive for the best result, and of course, they should not forget to do well at school, too. I will always be their number one fan.”

The National MILO Marathon is not only a breeding ground for local talents but also a program that empowers children nationwide. With the support of the Department of Education and the National MILO Marathon runners, MILO’s Help Gives Shoes advocacy will provide 10,000 underprivileged youth with brand new running shoes this year. MILO is working with DepEd in the selection of deserving public school student beneficiaries.

The race will resume in Balanga (July 19), before heading to Manila (July 26), Calapan (August 2), Lipa (August 9), Naga (August 16), Lucena (August 30), Iloilo (September 20), Bacolod (September 27), Tagbilaran (October 4), Cebu (October 11), General Santos (October 18), Davao (November 8), Butuan (November 15), and Cagayan De Oro (November 22). The National Finals will be held on December 6 in Angeles, Pampanga.

39th MILO Marathon Baguio

Runners prove they can overcome challenges as they conquered the wet roads at the 39th National MILO Marathon Baguio qualifying leg on Sunday. The rains were no match for veteran marathoner Julius Sermona and up-and-coming runner Gretchen Felipe, who placed first in the 21K running event for the male and female categories. The inclement weather did not dampen the spirits of the almost 7,000 runners who joined the race.

Philippine Air Force member Sermona bested his rivals, finishing with a time of 01:18:44. Michael Tolac (01:19:14) and Modesto Estoesta (01:22:07) followed in second and third place, respectively.

In the distaff side, Felipe, a Cordillera Career Development College freshman, posted a new personal record as she secured a comfortable victory with a time of 01:39:46. Second placer Jessica Hieras (02:00:38) and third placer Rashel Pena (02:02:37) completed the top 3 winners.

Sermona and Felipe secured their slots in the National Finals and each took home the top prize of P10,000 in cash and a trophy. Both will go head-to-head with the country’s best runners at the National Finals in Angeles on December 6, where the MILO Marathon King and Queen titles are up for grabs.
