Making the Lifesaving Choice


Colon Cancer does not choose its victims. It can hit anyone at any time, regardless of economic status, culture or education level. It does not even care if you are famous or not.

4 years ago, the country lost former president Corazon Aquino to colon cancer. Her daughter Kris Aquino stated that she was a healthy eater and had never been sick throughout her life. Despite that, around December 2007, Cory suffered from high blood pressure, breathing difficulties and fever which then led to loss of appetite and weight. After battling the disease for more than a year, the nation’s symbol of democracy died of cardiorespiratory arrest on August 1, 2009. 

Cory Aquino was just one of the many who fell victim to colon cancer. Other notable personalities with the same fate were beauty queen Chat Silayan and actor Charlie Davao.

According to the Philippine Cancer Society, around 8,000 new cases are diagnosed every year and are steadily increasing.

By definition, colon cancer is an illness wherein a malignant tumor develops in the colon. This tumor or growth may spread to other vital organs, rendering it fatal for the body. It may not be a contagious disease but it happens to be the fourth leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the country. Doctors have yet to discover its exact causes or why some develop this disease while others don't. 

The majority see colon cancer as an old man’s disease, since people ages 50 and above are more likely at risk of developing it. It is important to note though, that there are instances where younger adults and teenagers are also diagnosed. Risk factors include having a personal or family history of the disease, an inactive lifestyle, a low-fiber and high fat diet, and smoking habits.

The initial indicators of colon cancer are blood in the stool, constipation, inflammatory bowel disease, unexplained weight loss and pain in the lower abdomen. However, in many cases, the disease chooses not to show its signs and symptoms during the early stages. 

Nevertheless, there is still hope. Due to significant improvements in surgical techniques over the years, colon cancer is now 90% curable. The survival rate is high as long as the cancer is detected early. 

Since colon cancer usually produces no symptoms, choosing good screening tests like a colonoscopy exam can help determine the condition of the colon. In this procedure, a colonoscope is used to search the entire colon for polyps, or growths on the surface that can become cancerous.Finding and removing these polyps may reduce the chances of developing colon cancer. 

That is why the importance of colon screening cannot be emphasized enough. Regular screening can save lives from the disease, especially the lives of those who are 50 years old and above, those who have a family history and those who experience the symptoms.

To help in spreading this important message, a Lifesaver advocacy campaign was launched by the partnership of Dulcolax, the no. 1 prescribed laxative in the country*, and Carewell Community, a non-profit foundation that provides support, education, and hope to persons affected by cancer. The campaign highlights the fact that early and regular screening can save lives. Those concerned can visit the Colon Care PH Facebook page, which is one of the campaign’s programs. Here, you can find daily information about colon cancer and tips for dealing with it. 

Imagine if Cory Aquino’s cancer was discovered at an earlier time. It’s possible that her life would have been saved and she may still be alive today.

Indeed, colon cancer may strike at any time. That’s why in order to reduce the risk of being chosen by it, you must make the lifesaving choice and get yourself screened.

adiZero Primeknit now available in new exciting colours this season


Manila, October 15th, 2013: The new adiZero Primeknit 2.0, the first one-piece upper Performance running shoe, is being rolled out in new exciting colours this Fall/Winter season for both men and women.

Using the latest design tools with a new seamless engineering technology, adidas has created a first-of-its-kind running shoe. While traditional sports shoes are constructed from several different pieces, this breakthrough method digitally knits the entire upper in just one piece. Knitting fused yarn fine-tunes the exact amount of flexibility and support needed in every part of the shoe. There is no lining or reinforcements – the strength comes from the fused yarn, digitally-knitted in distinct grid patterns to provide ventilation. This all means lightweight comfort that wraps seamlessly around your foot, whilst fewer materials produce less waste.

James Carnes, Head of Design for Sport Performance at adidas, said, “We are constantly innovating to bring superior performance products to the greatest athletes in the world.  In designing the adizero Primeknit, our goal was to completely rethink how footwear is engineered, with a keen eye on sustainable construction.  This revolutionary design will forever change the way we engineer shoes, combining both premium innovation and maximum performance benefits.”

The adiZero Primeknit collection will be available at adidas Bonifacio Global City starting October 18, 2013 at PHP8295. A total of six colorways will launch in the Philippines, starting with the White and Pink models, followed by four more in November to January 2014.

The line focuses on the comfort, style, design and affordability that fit to the everyday lifestyle of every Filipino. Each clothing segment of Uniqlo represents a symbol for a specific use or style. So the next time you visit a uniqlo Store, you will notice square red symbol for every clothing project. Take for example, the HEATTECH.

My Run United Philippine Marathon Journey for 2013 is now complete…

Last year, I really felt so bad when I was not able to run at Run United Philippine Marathon - RUPM 2012. I was scheduled to go to Mindanao for a work-related trip and my return flight was exactly just a day before RUPM, practically just a few hours before gun time. So, when I left for Manila, I made sure to set everything in gym bag including my shorts, shirt, energy gels, race-bibs, etc. and I placed it near our door, so that upon my return, I will just rest a few hours and grab the bag and go. I even rehearsed that in my mind. But when it was time for me to go back home to Manila, the weather turned so bad that airport had to cancel all flights going to Manila. My flight going back was delayed for a day and my first RUPM experience was simply snatched from me by a natural calamity. A lesson learned. Never schedule a running event very close to work out of town trip.  

This year, after a couple of few marathons I did early this year, I thought I’m ready to do another one before the year ends, so I registered at the Milo Marathon via a group registration in our office. So confident that I’m secured for a 42k slot, I began to do some vigorous training. But after a week, just a few weeks before Milo Marathon, I was informed that my registration was down-graded to 21k, because there was no more 42ks available. It turned out that the liaison who supposed to submit our registration failed to submit it on time to RunRio. My disappointment lasted for a week. But then, I need to psych myself to positive vibes before a long run, even if it’s just 21k. After that, I thought, the last chance I have left this year is the RUPM. So, I made it a point to complete the first two legs of the trilogy so I can have the three piece medal. As a Runner Blogger, RunRio is so generous to grant us (media) with free race kits so we can promote the running event in the social media.  For three years running in Run United and blogging their events, this was the usual practice. 

As the days drew closer to RUPM, I was getting news that the 42k slots are running fast, I thought that maybe RunRio no longer need to promote it through bloggers since in the absence of it, the event was selling fast. So I thought, I have to register on my own before I run out of slots, again. But unexpectedly, RunRio announced a bloggers event for RUPM, just over a week before the race day. To our delight, most of my media friends, including me, didn’t bother to register anymore since every media event of RunRio, there are always a race kit prepared for us. And so I thought. The media event went through the usual program, a review of last years’ RUPM and some new elements Active Health prepared for this year, including the launching of the newest product of Unilab; the Active Health Energy Gel. In the launch, they even had everyone to get a first taste of the gel and invited us all to a blogging contest about it. 

Soon after the event was over, Coach Rio dela Cruz announced that the 42k slot was 100% sold out. So it means, there’s no more left for us. From that breaking news, everyone was bit disappointed, because even if we decide to buy, there was no more left for sale. So I guess this was another RUPM failure for me.  Exactly five days to go before the run, I accepted the reality that I’m not going to run on October 6. In desperate attempts, I even asked around all over social media if there was one who’s selling their race bibs for RU, but with no avail.  Surprisingly, just two days before RU, my running blogger friend Rene Villarta of messaged me about a RUPM race kit for sale. Without blinking an eyelid, I met up with him to buy the kit at P1,300 only. I’m so happy to get it at cost because he told me that there were race kits for sale in the black market in exorbitant rates ranging from P1,500 to P2,000 and they’re all selling like hot-cakes. And so, after several days of desperation, I finally ran in RUPM after all. 

Last October 6, 2013, I crossed the finish line with a brand new personal record for a full marathon; 4:39:25.

Run Untied Philippine Marathon. An elusive running event which I finally bagged and added up to my running list this 2013.
