Are You Ready to Chase the Sun?

Are you ready to chase the sun?  It’s just a week away…

You know how it is,  fair-skinned people want to tan and darker-skinned ones want to be fairer.  Haaay, a case of people always wanting what they don’t have.

I used to be a sun-worshiper in my youth.  I would play tennis at noontime and lie-down on the beach for hours hoping to get dark.  I used tanning lotions instead of sunblocks.  You see, I’m one of those who doesn’t get dark that easily so it really took a lot of effort on my part to get a really nice tan.  Anyways, those days have long been over for me. I have learned long ago to be comfortable in my own skin, appreciate it and protect it.

Taking up running as a sport however again exposed me to the harmful rays of the sun in training and in races.  I’ve since learned to use sun-block lotions to protect my skin.  I sure wouldn’t let the sun stop me from training now.  So, I’m chasing the sun again!  See you at the race!

Opposites do attract.  It’s the other way around for me.  The sun has always been chasing me and with good results.  Look… it does show!  hahaha

I always have fun under the sun.  So run I will and let the sun chase me.  Don’t forget your sunblock!  I know I won’t.

Here’s official press release furnished us by Finishline:

Chase the Sun at the Neutrogena Run!

A true runner will never let the intense summer heat get in the way of a good workout. But let’s face it. It would be a lot safer for her skin if she had something to protect her against damaging UVA and UVB rays. On Sunday, May 16, 2010, 4000 runners will finally get the chance to run under the summer sun with maximum sun protection. The Neutrogena Chase the Sun Run in Fort Bonifacio is the first road race organized by a beauty brand. A tribute to the woman who can sport beautiful, summer skin and strut her stuff as an active runner, the Chase the Sun Run will give runners the chance to experience firsthand how Neutrogena takes care of their skin.

For all their sun protection matters, runners need only look for the Neutrogena Ultra Sheer product line. This line of lotions and moisturizers offers runners superior sun protection through the Neutrogena-patented Helioplex technology. While other sunblocks are only effective in blocking out UVB rays, Helioplex technology delivers photo-stable UV protection that blocks both burning UVB rays and cancer-causing UVA rays from penetrating the skin. The Ultra Sheer product line comes in two convenient variants: Dry Touch Sunblock SPF 50+ and Waterlight Lotion SPF 50+ PA+++. Dry Touch Sunblock quickly gets absorbed into the skin, and its waterproof and non-pore clogging features are perfect for the active runner. Waterlight is an incredibly lightweight facial sun care product that is easy to spread, velvety, not greasy, and not shiny.  At the Chase the Sun Run, all runners will get the opportunity to sample both Ultra Sheer products, and testify to the superior sun protection that only Neutrogena can provide.

Runners can register at R.O.X. in Bonifacio High Street until May 12. Registration fee for the 3k run is P400.00, and only 1000 slots are available. Registration fee for the 5k run is P550.00, and 1250 slots are available. P600.00 is the registration fee for the 10k run, and 1000 slots are open. Finally, P650.00 is the registration fee for the 15k run, and this leg is open to only 750 runners.


In addition to the Chase the Sun singlet, runners can also look forward to a filled-to-the-brim Johnson & Johnson lootbag and an awesome finishers’ shirt made exclusively by Team Manila. Furthermore, cash prizes await the winners of each distance from the male and female categories. But the gifts don’t stop there! Upon finishing the run, participants, friends, and family members can spend the morning treating themselves to activities and games sponsored by participating Johnson & Johnson brands, Carefree, Modess, Listerine, Johnson’s Body Care, and of course, Neutrogena.

For more details, runners may visit or call 703-1736.

On Sunday, May 16 at Fort Bonifacio, get ready to Chase the Sun with Neutrogena!
