About DATC

DATC is a 30-something couch potato who accidentally got into running primarily because of the cool gadgets that could measure heart rate, distance, speed, and pace all while playing his favorite 80’s new wave music.

  1. I love the gadgets too… feel a bit like batman with a GPS, mobile phone, ipod, four drink canisters, Polar HRM, Apple footpod on right, Polar stride sensor on left and a small can of mace. Top it off with sunglasses and a hat, and I feel I am off to battle…

  2. I know the feeling! The Nike+ kit is a great motivational tool. Say…you’re not Simon Climber on the Nike leaderboard, are you? I guess you’re the only Simon who would come up with that nickname 🙂

    I recently got the GF305 too and I’ll be writing up a comparison soon.

  3. GF 205 or 305 are cool. i think thats the best running gadget ever invented for us runners asides from the Asics 2130.

  9. Dear Runner and Blogger,

    Ateneo’s Collegiate Society of Advertising (COSA) will be having its first-ever Fun Run on January 24, 2010 (Sunday) at the Ateneo campus grounds called, “RUN AGAINST THE ELEMENTS: Ateneo COSA Fun Run 2010” (3/5/10K) with our slogan: Stand Up to Climate Change. We have partnered with social entrepreneur, Illac Diaz, who started “Design Against the Elements.” This is an international design competition that responds to the call for social and climate adaptation by building sustainable homes. This was launched to international architects last June 16, 2009 at the Institute of International Education (IIE) at the United Nations Plaza in New York with the support of the IIE, the Philippine Consulate, Gov. Lray Villafuerte, Gawad Kalinga, United Architects of the Philippines and My Shelter Foundation.

    We are going beyond the spirit of volunteerism. By choosing Design Against the Elements as the cause for our fun run, we will also be promoting its anthem, “Stand Up”, a collaboration of 50 of the Philippines’ finest artists like Kjwan, Cookie Chua, Karl Roy, Jett Pangan, Noel Cabangon, Barbie Almalbis, Migs Escueta, etc. We are asking for your help in the simultaneous online release of the video we (Ateneo COSA) are creating for the song. This unreleased single will be launched online via a video which will be sent to you on TUESDAY for posting on your blogs. TUESDAY (OCT 27) is the targeted date, so if you would like to help us promote this global campaign and fun run event, please do post this video on your blogs.

    We hope you help us in promoting ACTION against and not just mere AWARENESS regarding climate change. Climate change is here and now—we want to be able to properly handle another calamity like Ondoy next time. Don’t we?

    We look forward to hearing from you.
