Runner Rocky on Its Fresh New Look

Yours truly's sports, fitness, and marathons blog Runner Rocky now sports a fresh new look! 

As I celebrate my second year anniversary in the running community and as I upgrade myself into the field of running and fitness, it's now time to upgrade my fitness blog as well!  

And yes, it now clearly defines its three major topics - sports, fitness, and marathons! And my fitness interviews with the different celebrities and personalities are also featured in this new website.

Check out below a glimpse of the new www.runnerrocky.com:




Green is the color theme of the new Runner Rocky. And different topics were also segregated in different tabs on the header.

We will be having a grand online launch of Runner Rocky's new website theme together with its new logo soon. 

What can you say on the new Runner Rocky? What other suggestions can you give?! (RCB)

Enjoying a "Move-A-Thon" Experience!





Have you experienced watching your favorite movies 24 hours at the same time dancing?! Well, we did... we did witnessed the audience watching and dancing at the same time! And we owed that for Star Movies who brought this one of a kind record-breaking event for movie marathoners! 

On June 27, 2016 at the House Manila in Resorts World Manila, yours truly together with my friends Miyo Briones, Vin Ello, and Gabriel Nico Los Banos had a chance to witnessed the 7TH Movie Marathon installment of Star Movies dubbed as the "Move-A-Thon." As the term suggests, "Move-A-Thon"  is a combination of movie marathon and dance moves at the same time. Hence, "Move-A Thon" or move (dance) + marathon. The event was actually a competition - a movie marathon that required non-stop dancing from contenders who wanted to be declared the Philippines’ ultimate film lovers. Groups of avid film viewers shimmied and shook their “groove thang” for up to 24 hours straight while watching the best and most popular movie musicals of all time—all for the chance to win the grand prize of PHP200, 000.  

This was not the first time that Star Movies spearheaded a movie marathon like this. Take a look in the following years with creative movie marathons from Star Movies:

2010 - Straight-Up Movie Marathon with Unlimited Food and Drinks
2012 - A Fitness Theme with Yoga and Physical Challenges
2013 - A Rigid Boot Camp Theme
2015 - "Scare-A-Thon" of All Horror Movies
2016 - "Move-A-Thon"


Since I'm a horror movies lover, I got interested with their last year's installment! In this event, 500 participants were required to sit completely still until one winner remained.

This year's "Move-A-Thon" was also the first time that the contestants formed a team. Contestants danced non-stop for an entire day while watching the most entertaining musicals in movie history, and because of the nature of the contest, Star Movies took the movie marathon out of the cinemas and onto the dance floor, holding it in the nightlife mecca of House Manila at Resorts World Manila. The channel and partner sponsors also provided contestants with food and beverages throughout the day.   

During our stay in the afternoon, we had watched two of the musical theme movies - the "Dirty Dancing" and the Disney's "Frozen." And yes, we also enjoyed unlimited food and drinks! The event also served as our hangout at the same time!







In the end, the team dubbed as The KPop Moveathoners composed of Regiely Prado, Rona Liezl Cruz, Paul Ian Lorica, Michael John Prado, and John Wilford Prado was hailed as the grand winner!

Sponsors like the Cadbury, Dosfenal, Listerine, and the Resorts World Manila itself gave their own special prizes as well!

This was such another remarkable and unique event from Star Movies for all the movie lovers! looking forward for its exciting edition next year! (RCB)

July 2016: "Work. Blog. Run. Repeat."


"Working, blogging, running..." These are the three verbs that describe my month of July 2016 keeping me busy on the start of the third quater. My calendar for the whole month was already blocked by different commitments related to the said three items.

Work - Yours truly is currently the Team Lead of our Project which is set to released on August. Well, I'm coordinating tasks, status, updates, issues, etc. to our onshore counterpart and leading the team here in Manila. 

Blog - Blogging is already part of my system. Everyday during my free time or before I go to sleep, I always ensure that I update my 4 blogs a minimum of one article post per blog. Attending events is also part of my blogging hobby

Run - My four Sundays of July just like last month were already booked by four major diffferent running events. Name it, I have it. And I feature those runs in my sports, fitness, and marathons blog Runner Rocky. Just like blogging, running then turns into my passion, my hobby, and my interest. 

Weekdays for work and blog, weekends for run and blog...and then the process repeats. That's how I manage for the meantime my month of July. And all the stories related to the mentioned three will be shared here (hopefuly all). So see you all in my suceeding posts. (RCB)
