Accomplished. Successful. Driven. Oozing with charisma. A man of substance. These are the traits of a Rogin-E Man. He leads an active lifestyle. He has a successful career. He is driven to excel in everything. He indulges in recreational activities. On top of all these, he finds time for his family.

On February 18, Rogin-E will hold the first-ever ManCon at the Metro Walk Tent in Pasig—a whole-day event especially geared for men who want to stay on top of their game.

Think cars and motorbikes for men who love speed and mobility; sports activities for those who want to stretch the limits of their physical strength and power; fashion and grooming for those who know that appearance counts; and a selection of toys and hobbies to engage a man’s mind and body.

Announcement: Legion Run Philippines

Hi!

It is with a heavy heart that we wish to inform you that Legion Run Philippines is CANCELED.

The success of Legion Run relies heavily on the obstacles that have been civil engineered, blueprinted and built by licensed contractors. Unfortunately, these need to be shipped from Bulgaria. We have bumped into a shipping problem and determined that it would be impossible to have the container vans arrive in time for the March 4 event in Greenfield City.

We are saddened that Legion Run won’t push through, but we hope you’ll support us when we’ve sorted things out and hopefully be able to return at a future time.

Twenty six miles in seven weeks

What did I get myself into this time? Proving that 2017 will be my comeback year, I volunteered myself as a pacer for a full marathon event. It was a decision I made roughly 10 weeks ago. I was thinking back then that I had plenty of time to safely rake in the mileage that I needed. I had 15 weeks! More than sufficient. Half of that went by with minimal training, now I have to accomplish something really, really difficult. (Kids, don't try this at home) My mission is to increase my mileage exponentially and be able to get my speed back without hurting myself doing the process.

At the time I am writing this entry, I know that it is an impossible feat however I still want to pursue this goal with the time that I have. Heck I wouldn't know if I don't try, right? The key element here is understanding my limits and if it is no longer fun then I know that I should call it quits. I know my running buddy will be disappointed if I'd back out especially that the event is just around the corner and knowing that it will be his first doing a full marathon. His spirit won't be crushed, I know that much, but it will be a huge letdown. I have a 21-mile run scheduled 3 weeks from now. That race will serve as a barometer if I am still up for the task.

Since it a race against time, I already started the year with a 6-mile run. After the run, I could already feel it in my left hip. I will be needing help and improve my biomechanics. Keeping my finger crossed that it will not burn a hole in my pocket. I have been ignoring my weak gluteal muscles and tight hamstrings, and the timing couldn't be better. Our bodies take a lot of beating during long distance running. Correcting my gait will definitely help me log more miles and improve my overall health. See you all on the road!
