Run Radio: Radio For Runners, By Runners
A radio show dedicated to running? Why not? =)
The first of its kind will be launched 2 weeks from now (to be exact, on July 24th) as a segment on the home of new rock, NU107, from 9PM to 10PM. It’s a good time for those doing their long runs on a Friday evening, especially if they deign to listen over their cellphone headsets. =) The show will be hosted by Jay Nacino and one of my running idols, Jaymie Pizarro, better known as The Bull Runner.
Of course, what would a radio show be without its guests? Some of whom you should listen to when the show debuts are: (1) Hector Yuzon, famed and respected owner of running store Second Wind; (2) Dr. Pio Punsalan, one of the hosts in Running Aid, a seminar all about running which was held (and which will be held again) at The Fort; and (3) Coach Rio dela Cruz, who has been organizing races in the metropolis in and out.
Tips, product reviews, upcoming running events (probably), talks on avoiding injury, songs to get your feet moving while running, even a 5K challenge to make individuals rise up from their sedentary lifestyles – all in one program. Incredible indeed. Running is totally being promoted not only as a sport, but also as a lifestyle that everyone should adopt.
So to all running addicts, running enthusiasts, and RUBUs (running buddies, hahaha!), make sure to listen to the first installment of the program on July 24th. Since I’m quite far from Manila now I’ll be listening to it over the web via eRadioPortal. Kudos to those who conceptualized this program! =)
