TEAM CB on Blog

a year ago, a not so serious running group was formed, accidentally named under cherry bautista who happens to be the only sea nymph, among the three mermen, "the argonaut", "the artist" and "the gramps" training for condura marathon 2010.
the founders
a month after, a force recruitment was happened. running friends who are closed to our heart were invited for a 7.5k race challenge which was successfully held in tiendesitas, now known as the "team cb's home court".

the group continues to grow and grow. new members have joined, declaring that they are part of the team. yes, we don't recriut, "ikaw ang magsabing team cb ka".
team singlet launch w/ freshmen, september 2010
some of the members were engaged in different multi-disciplinary sports such as ultramarathon, aquathlon, duathlon and triathlon. others remain as they were. silencer, cheerer, photographer. thus, team's effort to train together exists. play and work is the key why the group keeps on going.

few weeks ago, launched their "write-ups about running groups". this is where they feature a running group here in the philippines on their blog. whew! lucky enough that my team, Team CB was second in the row. thru the effort of argo and mardiol, Team CB history 101 has been FINALLY documented.

check for the buzz behind the name TEAM CB !
acknowledgment to for recognizing the team. maraming salamat!and GodSpeed!

Men's Health Urbanathlon & Festival 2010

URBANATHLON [ur-buhn-ath-luhn] (n) - from the words urban (cities) + (dec)athlon (which is commonly used to combine a multi-disciplinary sports). It is a multi-stage of race that involves running, jumping, crawling, skipping, climbing and having a lot fun being held in the metro.(lolo's definition few minutes ago).

October 11, 1415h. I received a message from a good friend, Argo  that he endorsed me to Georgia of Summit Media to be part of the Men's Health Urbanthlon 2010 Bloggers' night. I was surprised because I have never attempted to write anything about the upcoming race events neither promote my blog. I seldom sync it in my fb account

October 11, 1746h. Got an email to confirm my attendance, nice! free race kit baby. It made me sing, And I say, "Yes, I feel wonderful tonight." - Eric Clapton.

October 13, 1900h. The bloggers' conference dinner was held at Itallani's BHS at The Fort. Great to see my fellow runner friends which I haven't seen for a month. Crossed-over w/ Ms. Donna Fuentes, project manager of the said event, which I learned that she was my high school-mate. Wow, I am mr. popular, aren't I?.


I registered for a 5k race last year but failed to join as I got an emergency call from the office. Heard great reviews from my friends who joined the race. Now, it's time for me to experience it.
