ULTRASWIM for the benefit of CARA Welfare Philippines June 15 2013

CARAposter

On June 15, 2013 Hanna Sanchez will do the unthinkable. She will be swimming the whole day for 12 hours and target a distance of 22,500 meters. At first I thought 2.5Km ? which is doable for most …but then again I stand corrected..uh…its 22.5Km!  More than our 21km in running, she will be swimming. Thats a total of 900 laps in a 25 meter pool. What a challenge.

Hanna Sanchez is a writer, swim coach and a member of Endure Multisport. She would be totally against me posting this, being the humble person she is, but then again its free information in endure multisport site so its going to be my call to post her sports accomplishments (sorry hanna! but im sure readers wanna know =)

Coach Hanna Sanchez

Coach Hanna Sanchez

I was really curious how one prepares for this. Im a runner and a swimmer as well. But ofcourse ive done longer distances in running and the preparation and training for longer distances should be gradual and involves multiple muscle groups. What more in swimming? The Longest ive ever swam was 3.5km  and I was in my fitness peak. When we asked her what her training regimen was

“I just swim. Swim for as long as I can. This is my goal for the the event. To swim as far as I can with the given amount of time.”

 I was expecting more of technical training programs, but get to think of it, it do boils down to just spending time swimming and COMMITMENT. She is definitely committed to this!
As Ive shared my personal longest swim was 3.5km and one of my challenges even in training is WHAT TO THINK of while your swimming. As for me I just try to focus on my swim strokes, but im not that consistent, my mind would tend to wander off, to work , to music, to training, to my family, friends, food, anything under the sun really or on water..until I get totally lost. So when we asked her what she thinks of during her swim?

“hmm..Tricky part. I usually think of eating. haha. Kidding aside for this event, I will just think of all those animals that were not treated properly. Money is needed for what CARA does and I will not those animals down.”

When asked what made her want to do this, Hanna Replied..

“I am thinking of a way to support CARA’s endeavor but I do not think that I would last running the whole day. I want to do something that will signify my support to the organization. Since I am not reach and I cannot donate a lot of money, I thought of this event. I asked my friends to help me with organizing. CARA helped with the posters. I really want to help those animals that have been abused by people and abandoned by owners. They do not deserve to die or be on their own. They deserve another chance. They shouldn’t be maltreated. I want to do something about it with the help of CARA because they cannot protect themselves. My heart rips apart whenever I see animals that have been unintentionally hit by a car or drowned by people who do not know better. ”

This got me to look more into CARA Welfare Philippines. Upon checking their website, I found out that CARA was formed in the year 2000 by a dedicated group of animal lovers determined to help the plight of animals in the Philippines. They are a non-profit, non-government organization that receives no government funding and rely solely on private donations.

CARA Welfare Philippines Mission and Vision is as follows
Reduce pet overpopulation through our low cost spay/neuter clinic
To promote Trap/Neuter/Return
Provide veterinary consultations for low income pet owners/li>
Educate citizens, organizations & barangays about animal welfare and the rights of animals
Promote compassion for animals and responsible pet ownership
Prevent cruelty and abuse to animals
Provide caring and responsible homes for our members rescues through our adoption program

Hope you guys get to find it in your hearts to support this cause as well and pledge financial support for the benefit of CARA Welfare for the animals. Donations will go to the care of animals.

The ultra swim event will happen at YMCA Binondo on June 15, from 7am to 8pm. Interested people can either donate any fixed amount or pledge per lap (at least a peso per lap).

First they need to fill up the pledge form (https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B4n4dTsIu-r7WWotd1hOaDcyTlU/edit)

The Great Bank Family Fun Run July 21 2013 Aseana City (w/Dog Run Category)

The great bank family fun run

The great bank family fun run

How fast  time flies and its already been a year since the last Great Bank Family Fun Run:  Run for Savings Consciousness.

Truly that was one blessed day since a typhoon was scheduled, all the rest of the run races were cancelled, except ours and we were blessed with wonderful weather and a wonderful running crowd as well.

487668_477045508972803_1817362404_n

I hosted the event and most memorable moment was this. It was already late (for a fun run at least) it was 9am and most have gone home but still a big crowd gathered. We were announcing everyone to claim the bag at the baggage counters because it was time to pack up and close. So I read the bag tag number for the last bag to be claimed. Out of nowhere, Mars Callo (one of the familiar fun running figures) was screaming and running crazy, shouting me me me! We just finished the raffle, then it hit me! She thought she won the raffle! So she came up the stage really excited! So i said… “Mars, pinili ko number mo at hindi ka nakikinig… eto premyo mo! Bag mo mam i-claim mo na at mag clo-close na tayo!” We all laughed it off.  Syempre may palo galing kay Ms. Mars!

Pompono Fish in Clear Broth (Tinolang Pampano)

My mom is ilongga, hailing from a small town called Murcia near Bacolod. Its only now that I get to really appreciate the simple yet savory, not to mention healthy cuisine they cook up there.

When fresh fish is available, and I mean fresh,( just caught transported brought in the wet market and not yet frozen), tinola or clear broth is the way to go. Most would shy away from this or just opt for the usual sinigang in masking or eliminated the “fishy” taste and smell of fish. It all boils down to how fresh your ingredients are, the fresher the ingredients the less you should mess with it.

One of the fish and sea food capitals in the Philippines is in Capiz and over centuries they would find ways to cook bounties from sea. Tinola is a way of cooking seafood in broth / soup that has made its way to neighboring provinces as well.  In Manila, the tagalog (taga ilog) are used to eating chicken tinola. In visayas, tinola is referred to as seafood broth.

For this dish there are no soy sauces, no fish patis sauce, not even instant broths knorr maggi etc,.
