Le’Dawn 10-in-1 Coffee

This day of May, I with my loving wife became a Dealer for Le’ Dawn Coffee.

By God’s grace, we have decided to make it our business.

With a 5 x 5 Marketing Scheme as Business Model – I believe it will work. All that is needed is a P 200.00 for the purchase of the product (1 box of 10 sachets).

I get to use for my own consumption the one I bought, I could also sell to anyone,ย  and/or help others by making them my dealer. It’s a good business – if one would just work for it.

May the Lord bless the work of our hands.



An organic-based herbal coffee with a fine taste.

Not sweet nor bitter.

Creamy even without so much Froth.

Health is a choice.

Being healthy is.

Healthy eating habit, (in this case, a drink) is best combined with a good exercise routine of at least 30 minutes per day.

One may never enjoy the future without a good health.

It’s never too late.

We can all start with a cup of coffee.

The Funniest Day

…so far, for this year!


I went to bed early the night before and woke up early for my FBS, Cholesterol and Bone Density Exam. I am amazed at how the technology improved this time. Results readily available in minutes. Your guess is right. I will reveal it later!

I was surprised at the result too…well, not much. Since January, I was able to complete only 1 21-km event and 1 10-km race. The last Ultra distance is February – then, no more.

I only have the following mileage for the last 5 months:

January – 192 kms

February – 133 kms

March – 66 kms

April – 352 kms (the Team Cavite ESE Challenge really does make wonders)

May – 74 kms as of this writing.


So, I really have slacked a lot.

I ate the same amount of meal – with less workouts.

I have a recurring cramps in the left midfoot.

And the most puzzling – a recurring heel pain that swells a lot. This is also the reason why I have a very low weekly mileage.

Just last Friday, I was able to log a sub-17 minutes 3-K. ..and that’s it. Saturday, Sunday, Monday – no run. The heel pain is very pronounced and the swelling is much too obvious. It’s just a 3K! I would have made it a 5K or 10K but I have no time then. I ended up missing a race last Sunday due to this same reason.

But then, I find it all funny.

I ran midfoot to forefoot. Why is it that my pain is in the ball of the heel and it is swollen? ๐Ÿ™‚

I wanted to run daily. I am now reduced to at least every 2 days.

The funniest now –

I have a borderline cholesterol count of 198!

The HDL is very low, while the LDL is super high!

Bakuman - 19 - Large 32

The doctor even immediately prescribed Atorvastatin to me.


Been there before in 2008.

I dare not take any medicine or prescription drugs. I just run daily – a daily 5K. ๐Ÿ™‚

I guess I’d go back to that, and supplement myself with a Coffee that could lower a cholesterol.

I’d be seeing the clinic again after 2 months for a lipid profile.

Until then, we’ll see who beats who.

God is in control.

Our God reigns.


I believe so.

What Keeps You Busy?

I wonder.

I work Mondays to Fridays from 10:00pm to 6:30am.

Almost always too sleepy after a duty.

I don’t get to run as often as I used to.

By the time I get home, I would normally go straight to bed.

But this is a not-so-good time to do that here in Manila. It’s just too hot!

You’d be bathing in your own sweat if you are not in an air-conditioned room. An industrial electric fan is not enough – since the air it be blowing you is also hot. ๐Ÿ™‚

It is a matter of getting-used-to-it now.

Who can make me stay awake when I am all too sleepy?

Not the city noise. Not even the heat.

But sometimes, it does.

I would always schedule an afternoon run at these times but still, I fail to execute.

The heat of the sun even at 5:00 pm can still sting. 4:00 pm is worse – unless you really want to sweat a lot.

The week is about to end.

I only have 13 kilometers to boast now. Way too low and below my average.

But the 2 sessions I’ve had are good ones. I’m proud of my progress – no matter how little it may seem.

I just don’t get to find the good time to run more and longer now.

I really am short of time due to my changing work schedule.

Next month is a different story. I’ll be back to a 2:00 pm work schedule. Mid-shift has a lot of open time to insert my jog-walk-run. ๐Ÿ™‚

Looking forward.

Thanks be to God!

This is my favorite shoes for daily running.

Quadrant #3 = Inov-8 Roclite 243

Mileage to date = 272 kms

Takbo sa Pagbangon ng Leyte

I left home earlier than usual.

I intend to walk and warm-up before it starts.

Good decision! ๐Ÿ™‚

With almost no sleep I proceeded with the plan of making a 1-hour or sub-1 time. I just wanted it that way.

Looking back to my last official 10-km race, I recorded a time of 59 minutes and 35 seconds. It was also too long ago – July 14, 2013 at the Takbo.Ph Runfest! The week before this event, I managed a good 57 minutes and 6 seconds at the adidas King of the Road race, 7th of July 2013.

It’s really that long. I have gotten used to starting a race early and above 50K, but I do run a lot of any distances below 30 kilometers.

Going back to the race –

I did enter the chute and positioned myself at the back since the road will open on its own after about 2 kms. I just continue with my ups and hips rotation until the gun start.

I did start fast.

5 minutes 30 seconds for the 1st kilometer. While I am chasing no one in particular but my goal – I find it a bit too fast for my own good.

I immediately slowed down for the 2nd kilometer just to be sure, and pick-up a pace I can sustain from there.

Found it.

5:40 – 5:48 is a lot easier, with occasional burst to 5:00 and 5:30.

I just needed to maintain a good average pace of 5:40-5:45 and I will be hitting my goal for sure. ๐Ÿ™‚

So I kept the pace and maintained it to the best of what I can.

Im so glad that things turn-out better than expected. I don’t feel tired at all and I am enjoying my pace. I clocked at 28 minutes sub 29 at the 5K turn-around. It was all the more reason for me to feel better…

I was thinking that even if I stayed at 6 minutes per kilometer after the turn-around, I will still be at a sub-1-hour finish. But then I felt good. So I pushed further. No hard effort – but some easier approach to the finish.

Last 1.5 kms to the finish line, I raised the tempo from my fastest easy to something that will require some effort. I switched to longer stride, faster turn-over and more on forefoot. It’s a bit of a risky thing to do then – since I have spent an entire month and more to running flatfoot.

Anyways, last 800 meters, I switched back to flat foot and hit it fast to the finish line. It was a good glide, I thought. Effortless-seeming-flat-foot-run to the finish line…

Hitting a good 56 minutes 46 seconds. ๐Ÿ™‚ a good average of 5 minutes 39 seconds per kilometer. I even stopped 5 times to grab a water to drink.

Such blessing from God!

Glory and honor to Him who is Almighty!

Thanks to PDIC for this event. It’s for a noble cause – worth lauding!
