Unilab Activehealth 2013 Calendar of Events

Plan ahead and make your training be in the right place. 

Putik Pare! Feel the Putik Pit!

The Putik Pare happening once again, this time in Clark Freeport, Pampanga on November 18, 2012, Sunday.  This is the third staging of the Xterra Putik Pare in the Philippines, after its successful events in Nuvali, Sta. Rosa, Laguna.

How the Putik Pare works?  It's a two-man team duathlon. With one member starting the race running and the other member biking. The two will then switch disciplines - the person who was biking in the first course, will run for the second course and vice versa.

For this year´s XTERRA PUTIK PARE, a new taste and feel as we discover Pampanga's best attractions! We promise you that the course will be both fun and challenging for newbies and experts alike.

The main highlight of this event, the Mud pit, where participants crawled to get to the finish line, Mud pit will be back with a fresh set of unique challenges and surprises.

Who is Angelo Ortiz?

I had no plan of going out on a gloomy Saturday. It's nice to just stay at home but I need go out to register for KOTR. So, I get up and pulled my butt in the bed and went to Greenbelt 3 where the nearest store of adidas is located. After I registered, I feel hungry. I was craving for lutong bahay and I end up in Sentro. I tried their vegetable kare-kare. It was good but the bagoong was  slightly overcooked ;) hehehe! But over all the food was fairly good.

I was so full and decided to take a walk for a couple of minustes. My legs brought me to G5. I heard a live music playing inside the mall. It was not an ordinary music we usually hear, it was a symphony concerto. I saw a guy on the middle at the piano and on his side were the wind symphony orchestra players. I stopped for a moment to watch and listen, anyway it's free. I took a couple of pictures of the show. I finished the whole performance together with a few people who love classical music. I would not be surprised why I love watching them. Music runs in the family. I have a sister who's a graduate of BS Music. Anyway, she used to perform in front of us especially if my deceased lola requested for her favorite classical music "Poet and Peasant" by Franz von Suppe. (don't you miss playing this sister? :-)
