Since the dawn of time, men and women have always loved competing to find out who’s better in doing a variety of tasks. Who’s better in cooking, who’s better in driving, who can party harder, etc. Though this blog might not be able to answer all these questions, it can at least answer one, “Who’s the faster runner?


In last year’s Battle of the Sexes, the men outrun the women! Truth is, the girls just didn’t want to bust the guys’ egos so we let the guys win. Yep, we love you guys so much!  (heehee) Seriously though, the first to finish last year’s run may have been the men, but the real winners were the children of Virlanie Foundation who came out with 755,000 pesos more thanks to everyone who registered! You think we can do even better this year? I’m sure we can!
