Men’s Health November 2012

Men’s Health encourages you to face your fears
in its November 2012 issue.
       
This November, Men’s Health dares you to face your fears in an issue packed with tips on how to do just that. On the cover is actor and sport climber Paulo Avelino, who despite his fear of heights, faced it head on by climbing atop outdoor rock formations.
“It doesn’t mean that if you’re afraid of heights, you can’t do rock climbing,” says Avelino who got introduced to the sport in 2007.  At first, he trained indoors to build his endurance and rhythm. Then he pushed himself further by taking his climb outdoors with more experienced climbers.
Surprisingly, Avelino shares with Men’s Health that another element that he likes about the sport is the very thing he fears. “I enjoy reaching the top but falling. I can’t explain it. When you fall, you fall sa pinakamalapit na sinabitan mo. The fall makes you feel alive,” he quips.
In the same issue, Men’s Health features five men and women in uniform who bravely faced adversities in fulfilling their duties as civil servants. Awarded as outstanding Policemen and Soldiers by the Metrobank Foundation, they share their personal stories of bravery despite the life-threatening situations they were in.
The November 2012 issue also has an extensive article on do-it-yourself guy food. The recipes are quick and easy to make. So if it’s cooking you fear, Men’s Health will help you cover that base with ease.
Read more about these by grabbing the November 2012 issue of Men’s Health featuring Paulo Avelino on the cover. It’s now available in newsstands and bookstores nationwide.

ALMOST

Para magka-idea lang. 🙂

Ganda ng statistics ng run. Simula yan sa CLARK to Sapang Uwak. Kaya naman pala wasak na wasak ang calf-muscle ko.

(click nyo lang ang Yellow Pin para makita ang detalye)

Nagsimula ang takbuhan (lakad for me!) @ 4:07am. Nakabalik ako ng Clark after 10 hours 2 minutes!

Kors rekord ko ito. LOLs

Ako ang pinaka-huling natapos at nakabalik sa finish line.

Napakaganda ng ruta. Maraming flat…

…flat ako sa lupa at hindi makatayo sa tindi ng cramps.

Salamat kay Harold at Mike Flores.

Salamat sa HYDRITE ni Mike at sa tungkod ni Harold.

Salamat at di nyo ako pinabayaan…(hinintuan ako ni Harold at inunat ang daliri sa paa. Si Mike naman ay bumalik pa kahit nasa kabilang bundok na.) #nakahiga kasi ako sa daan at namimilipit sa sakit #humihiyaw ako

Naghanap na ako ng masasakyan pabalik ng Clark pagkatapos ko uminom ng tubig at mountain dew sa GK Village kasama ng mga batang Aeta. Kaso wala palang byahe dun. Special trip na daw ako pag nagkataon. Almost DNF.

So, lakad. Chasing Ron and Philippe. 🙂

Solong solo ko ang Lahar River..

naka tungkod pa…:)

Nakuha sa tiyaga. Nilakad ko lang ng nilakad hanggang makayanan ko na mag.jogging.

Isa na namang Special Day para sa isang ordinaryong tao. 🙂

Salamat sa Diyos!

Last Runner to Finish. 🙂 4:07am to 2:09pm. with the RD.
