Powerade Runner

For the Goldilocks 45th Anniversary Run at Bonifacio Global City, Powerade sponsored my run! I was officially 1 POWERADE RUNNER for that event.  I love having my runs sponsored! If you need somebody to run for you, contact me! (^o^)/

Probinsyano moment kicked in when we had to put on a chip on our shoes to record our time.  This is how the chip tag should look on your shoes.  

Now what's really impressive is the loads of data that this running chip can provide after the run.  For the most obvious use, the organizers put up a site where you can check your running time (gun time and chip time) and see how you ranked overall.   

The chip can also provide you your SPLIT TIME and AVERAGE RUNNING SPEED.

With the aid of a good computer software, you can also compare your location with that of a fellow runner on a specified time.  The picture below depicts my location when the Overall Winner finished the race!  

With the aid of the chip, displaying each runners pictures would be very convenient as well.  They just match all pictures taken during the time you crossed the chip sensor's line.
But unfortunately, these databases are also good stalking devices.  Like here, I was able to search Gabby Eigenmann's name and see results of his run.
