Episode 17: MIND OVER MOUNTAIN!

Season 1, Ep. 17
Kristian Jorgensen ran his best UTMB performance to date at the TDS 2022, ranking 15th among his competitions. We might think it is because everything went well with his run but it wasn’t. He ran the first part of the race with a rolled ankle and at the halfway he rolled the other one, causing the event medics to almost force him to stop his race.This same horrific experience also happened with Kristian during his infamous balls incident during the Hongkong 4 Trails Ultra Challenge (HK4TUC). HK4TUC is a self-supported 298 kilometer challenge in HK where he finished first among fellow survivors in 55 hours, making him the 7th person to finish the whole route under the 60 hours challenge during that edition. He made a mistake of shaving a few days before causing him bad chafing at the first part of the race and to go on commando, literally just wearing the T8 Commando Underwear until it was comfortable enough wear shorts.For Kristian, his success is born out of his desire to RUN because he wants to RUN. He doesn’t consider his activities as training for a race or racing to podium.He shared that he just keeps running since he started in the sports - his improved performance and elite looking physique and record breaking performances followed.Kristian is a Danish staying in the Philippines for more than a decade with his family and two kids. He love the Philippines so much and he wishes the Philippine trail running community unites and works together for improvement for it to flourish and bring out the better athletes in everyone.We enjoyed this conversation so much and got inspired to hop on to the nearest trails and just RUN.Join the Race Ya community at [raceya.fit](https://raceya.fit)For events and activities REGISTER (raceya.fit)For your sports needs: Home - Shop at RaceyayaKristian's TDS by UTMB Shorts and Commando is available here T8 - Shop at RaceyayaKristian's nutrition choice is available here Tailwind Nutrition - Shop at Raceyaya

Episode 16: FINDING GREATNESS THROUGH SPORTS

Season 1, Ep. 16
In this episode, we had a deep and exciting conversation with John Aguilar.John is a serial entrepreneur; a producer and host in CNN Philippines for the Final Pitch (The Final Pitch – The first business reality tv show in the Philippines.) as host and for Philippine Realty TV as producer. You can listen to his podcast at Methods to Greatness. He is also an author and is indeed a game-changer in whatever he is into.Sports, early on in his growing up years as an athletics varsity player later on as training pool for a potential stint in the SEA Games prior to retiring, taught John to take the cards we have to deal with and maximize that chance. This, he believes molded him into his own path to greatness. Even with a busy schedule as he started his media career and left the training team, John stayed the course and stayed active. He shared it’s all about balance and knowing that at some point there could be imbalance in your priorities.He recently bagged the bronze medal in the Ninja World Cup100 – Leg 1 by the World Obstacle Federation, organized by the Pilipinas Obstacle Federation - an event that is the first in the world giving its competitors a first-hand taste of the obstacles ahead. Competitors had to go through a 100-meter Ninja course with 15 obstacles.During the event, a penalty cost him around 20 seconds and he had to take a dive, executing a move called lachet that he hasn’t done in practice. This would make up and keep him in the running for a medal. He took the risk, faced what’s in front of him and nailed his spot in the podium.His recent performance showed how you can achieve greatness in sports. Always go for that chance; leaving you with no regret. And this applies as well to how you deal with the other aspects of life.In the episode, John also shared about how the sports OCR Ninja is growing and how it deserves to be given more attention with all the accolades it has achieved. Listen to this episode as John makes his Final Pitch for the sports of OCR Ninja.We hope you get inspired to find your greatness through sports in this episode, we surely did!Join the Race Ya community at [raceya.fit](https://raceya.fit)For events and activities REGISTER (raceya.fit)For your sports needs: Home - Shop at Raceyaya

Episode 14: YOU CAN RUN

Season 1, Ep. 13
Jaymie Pizarro, better known as The Bull Runner has (almost) run the world. Literally.  Being the first Filipino to complete the World Marathon Majors (New York, Chicago, Berlin, London, Tokyo, and Boston) and a total of 19 marathons and counting you would think she is a naturally-born athlete. But, for Jaymie, running happened only at the age of 30, then a young mom of two who was looking for ways to lose weight. She found herself and since then has not looked back.  As long as her feet will allow her, she intends to run and considers it her mission to help others find their own love for the sport.In 2008, Jaymie created a running blog called TheBullRunner.com which has since become the resource for most runners in the Philippines, including our host Tin when she started running in the same year. This eventually had a spin-off to a magazine which ran for a couple of years. In 2010, together with co-founder Jim Lafferty, Jaymie launched The Bull Runner Dream Marathon, the only marathon in the world that caters to first and second-time marathoners.   It has since then allowed dreamers to say, "I am a marathoner", at six thousand and counting todate. In the middle of the pandemic, Jaymie also founded TempoByTBR.com which is an online wellness platform that helps people live healthier, happier lives. As the pandemic restriction eased up, Jaymie has also launched the-omit Basecamp.  This program, a part of the TBR Dream Marathon University, takes participants to build their running base from zero to the state when they are ready to get started in their marathon journey. We had fun reminiscing about running in the Philippines, learning and getting inspired with Jaymie’s own running journey and feeling inspired on how she uses her platform to show everyone that they can run the world, literally and figuratively.
