Holiday Gift Guide 2015

I know this is a bit late for some holiday shopping. Let's admit it, there are still those holding on to their hard earned money and still haven't decided which one to get. Perhaps, like me, you are also waiting for a post-holiday sale which can slash prices from 15% to 20%. Even more. Let me warn you though, you may have already noticed based from the images alone, this list revolves around shoes that I personally handpicked. Not a mishmash of things thrown at your face just to put up some lame gift guide. You know what I'm talking about. This list is better than many, but by no means the best.

The list followed some criteria. First, it must be light. You don't want to go 'round the track on some lead boots. Second, the heel stack height should be less than 30mm. I know that this is too thick and against my philosophy but I wanted a gift guide that would also appeal to those who needs more under their feet. If you want something minimal, go and grab Merrell's Vapor Glove (6mm stack height). Or one of those running sandals. There I said it. Can we now move on? Third, heel to toe drop must be 6mm or less. With that, let's get on with the list

Nike Free 3.0 Flyknit (PHP6,000+)

Asics Gel-Hyperspeed 6 (PHP5,000+)

Skechers GOrun Ride 4 (PHP4,000+)

Puma FAAS 300 v4 (PHP4,000+)

Saucony Endorphin Racer (My fave!)

LG and ONE Championship Unite for Charity

Consumer electronics giant LG Electronics teamed up with the world’s most exciting mixed martial arts (MMA) organization, ONE Championship to bring about the intense “ONE Championship: Spirit of Champions” match to the SM Mall of Asia Arena.

Headlining the much-awaited Heavyweight World Champion Division were top-ranking heavyweight champions, Brandon “The Truth” Vera versus Paul “Typhoon” Cheng. Vera conquered the octagon and was thus crowned as the ONE Championship Heavyweight World Champion. LG also presented the Flyweight match between Ana Julaton and Irina Marzepa, with Marzepa emerging as the winner.

Prior to the match, LG Electronics and ONE Championship visited Pangarap Foundation in Manila. This foundation provides shelter and care for underprivileged children, as well as livelihood training programs to ensure a self-sufficient future. Pangarap Foundation kids were thrilled to meet MMA legend and ONE Championship Vice President Rich Franklin, who taught them the basics of dodgeball, an American schoolyard classic.

After a fun afternoon of play, LG unveiled another surprise for the foundation: a premium Smart TV, with free access to epic ONE Championship matches and thousands of other materials, set up in the facility’s common area. Access to the LG Smart World App Store will greatly contribute to the kids’ recreational and bonding activities.

Poliquit, Tabal defend crowns in Pampanga

Defending MILO Marathon King Rafael Poliquit and MILO Marathon Queen Mary Joy Tabal successfully held on to their crowns in the National Finals of the 39th National MILO Marathon held in Angeles, Pampanga on Sunday, as they beat fierce opposition in the 42K centrepiece event. Almost 14,100 happy runners enjoyed the scenic route, and despite the challenge brought about by the rain, the race was very safe and successful.

Tabal joins the league of National MILO Marathon female legends who have won three consecutive championships namely: Arsenia Sagaray (1992, 1993, 1994), and Christabel Martes (1999, 2000, 2001), while Poliquit clinched his second consecutive MILO Marathon King title. The champions received PHP 150,000 in cash and a trophy each. Tabal received an additional PHP 250,000 for placing second in the 42K female open category. Both will also be sent by MILO to the USA on all-expense paid trips to represent the Philippines in the prestigious 2016 Boston Marathon, the world's oldest annual marathon.

It was a tight race at the top, with back-to-back champion Poliquit finishing first with a time of 02:36:12, relegating rival Juneil Languido to second place with a time of 02:36:21. Maclin Sadia (02:37:43) followed in third. Poliquit, who was last year’s surprise winner, shared that being able to defend his title is definitely special. “It’s such a blessing to win my second title in a row,” said the 26-year-old Tagum City native. “I can’t explain the feeling. I’m proud because all of the hardships and the challenges I faced during my preparations are worth it.”

In the distaff side, three-time MILO Marathon Queen Tabal ruled with a time of 02:48:24, with Mary Grace Delos Santos (03:02:21) and Christabel Martes (03:02:29) placing second and third, respectively. Tabal shared that she was under so much pressure coming into the race, because everyone was expecting her to win again. “I couldn’t help but cry when I crossed the finish line,” said the 26-year-old Cebuana. “I’m so happy and relieved. I wouldn’t have achieved this without the help, prayers and support of my family, friends, and my coach Philip Duenas.”

Kenyan runners dominated the 42K open category, with James Tallam (02:20:10) leading the male category, followed by Josphat Kiptanui (02:20:49) and Julius Keprotich Seurei (02:21:54). In the female category, Elizabeth Rumokol (02:43:45) led the ranks, with Mary Joy Tabal (02:48:24) and Margaret Wangui Njuguna (02:49:32) completing the top three. Runners of all ages joined in the 3K, 5K, 10K and 21K divisions, and well-known personalities, including Yayo Aguila, Ara Mina and JC Parker, also joined in the grand finale.

MILO Sports Executive Andrew Neri expressed his heartfelt gratitude for another amazing marathon season. “We at MILO would like to thank all of our partners who supported us at the 39th National MILO Marathon. Today’s successful race is testament to our runners’ passion and dedication to move forward in their champion journey,” said Neri. “Next year is the 40th year of the MILO Marathon, and we would like to invite everyone to join us in celebrating this very important milestone. Congratulations to all and see you next year!”

20th Alaska Football Cup Championship

Two decades of commitment with the world’s most popular sport, Alaska Milk holds the 20th Alaska Football Cup at the Alabang Country Club in Ayala Alabang Village for a three-day event on November 28 – 30.

The biggest football event for young athletes attracted players of all ages, from as young as six years old. They have gathered in one venue to participate in one of the longest-running and most successful grassroots-development programs in the local football scene.

“This marks another monumental event for Alaska. We have 410 teams and a total of 6,150 football players together in one venue, all united by their love for football,” shares Wilfred Uytengsu, President and CEO of Alaska Milk Corporation. “It is of great pride to witness how the Alaska Sports Program has engaged young athletes into this kind of culture, and how they live by the values inherent in sports,” he further adds.

The Alaska Football Cup is one of the highly anticipated annual football tournament for today’s young athletes. The weekend event will be played with more than 800 seven-a-side games, in 29 football fields, and officiated by over 168 game officials.

School teams and football clubs from all over the Philippines including Masbate, Baguio, Negros Occidental, Cebu, Davao, Palawan, Legaspi, Laguna, Batangas, Bukidnon, Zambales, Pampanga, Tarlac, Ilocos, Bicol, Romblon, Davao Sur, Compostela Valley, Quezon, Cavite, Albay, Pangasinan, Bacolod, Iloilo, Mindoro and Metro Manila will participate.

Alaska on developing the child’s “winning form”
Alaska Milk encourages sports engagement, as it instills the values of determination, discipline, hard work, team work and sportsmanship during the early stages of a child’s life. Participation in sports like football helps them achieve the “winning form”, which has been Alaska’s goal for children since it launched its first football cup tournament in 1995.

Football provides an active alternative for children in place of passive activities such as watching television, surfing the Internet, or spending too much time on social media. The National Nutrition Survey of the Food and Nutrition Research Institute (FNRI) reported that health issues are best addressed by adopting an active lifestyle along with healthy diet, and regular drinking of milk, at least twice daily.

Sports tournament like this develops the athletic and social skills of participants through healthy competition among the same age group, while it boosts physical and mental development. Become an inspiring athlete too and join Alaska’s sports programs - NUTRITION. ACTION. CHAMPION.

With this new venue, runners will be able to get a chance to enjoy being away from the hustle and bustle of Metro Manila, with less traffic and pollution. “The National Finals in Angeles is a fresh and exciting challenge our participants can look forward to,” said MILO Sports Executive Andrew Neri. “The MILO Marathon is all about bringing new and electrifying experiences to our runners.

In addition to the prize money and trophies, 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 world's oldest annual marathon. One of the six World Marathon Majors, the Boston Marathon ranks as one of the world's best-known road racing events. It is considered as the Mecca of all races, where the best of the best runners compete.

To further inspire the 42K homegrown runners to push their limits and help champions move forward, local runners who finish amongst the top winners of the open category will also win the prize for the local category corresponding to their respective ranks. Bonus prizes will also be given to the first runner who breaks the 2:15:00 invisible time barrier (Php 100,000), the first male runner who breaks the 2:18:53 men’s course record of 5-time MILO Marathon King Eduardo Buenavista (Php 50,000), and the first female runner who breaks the 2:48:00 women’s course record of back-to-back MILO Marathon Queen Mary Joy Tabal (Php 50,000).

Well-known personalities have also booked their slots in the grand finale, including Kim Atienza, Yayo Aguila, Ara Mina and JC Parker. The nation’s best sprinters will be up against each other to win the biggest title. NMM regional winners and qualifiers will also be on their toes, especially elite runners Eduardo Buenavista, Cellie Rose Jaro, Ireneo Raquin, Mary Grace Delos Santos, Julius Sermona, Lany Cardona and Crestabel Martes to compete the full marathon race.
