What we have accomplished in Phase 1?

Here are the testimonies of aNR-BHS.

"aNR helped me have a "scientific" approach to my runs. Before I just run without any other knowledge about it but ever since joining aNR I learned different techniques on how to improve my running. The Team Leaders being an Ultramarathoners or Triathletes also gave me so inspiration that I can achieve those things in the future." - Mark Leonard Manalo

"When I joined the aNR training. This is where I found out about training from not only a single type of training that there was a couple of different training in running (from circuit to speed to name a few). It made me more prepared to run my first Marathon this year, to learn what to expect in a run and best of all less injury when I found out about your stretching techniques. Now I approach running differently it has more purpose and prepares me to set new goals every time we train and run." - James Rosca

"Running on the treadmill became unbearable and utterly boring, so I sought out for running buddies. I found adiNation of Runners BHS. But I got more than just company. I found expert coaches, dedicated runners, and cheerful friends. - Francis Fermin

"Before joining ANR I didn't have any formal training or joined any running clinic. My goal every run is just to cross the finish line; I was also not familiar with some running terms; I only get to understand some when I started joining the running clinic of Adidas. At ANR I was able to get myself familiarized with different terms and how I will apply them during training. I could also remember my time with Natures Valley RunRio Leg2 was 2hrs 39mins 21secs. I run another 21km at Rexona and all the hard work paid off and I had good PR there of 2hrs 16mins 37secs." - John Tigno

  1. Being part of this group gave me more reasons to run. Initially, I run simply because I needed it. But now, I am running for the love of it. Enjoying the freebies are one of the perks but this running group offer so much more than that. Thank you aNR! Looking forward to the new phase.

  2. I really had a great time running with you guys last Phase I and I can't wait for Phase II to start.

    Excited for the raffles and private sales too. Heheh :D
