Hi to all! Welcome to jazzrunner!
My name is rene and welcome to my blog, jazzrunner. Love the sport of running and i’m also as passionate about jazz music. I did most of my running during the running boom of the 80s and early 90s and completed 4 full marathons and countless other races of shorter distances. Running had to be temporarily shelved during the mid 90s when work and family had to be given priority. Returned to running last March 2008 mainly to loose weight again, maintain physical fitness and run another marathon or two. i’ve been pounding the streets ever since.
I have been to jazz music since high school when the craze then were Joe Zawinul, Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea and many other jazz-rock groups. I’m at present into avant garde jazz but still dig be-bop, post bop, mainstream, jazz vocalists and big band jazz. I have in my collection about 1,200 cds, all of them jazz music. My present favorites include Kenny Wheeler, Keith Jarrett, Cecil Taylor, Marilyn Crispell, Paul Bley, John Abercrombie and many others.
At present, i am a member of the Executive Runners Club of the Philippines (RUNNEX). Also, I am Head-Team Leader of the ADIDAS Adination of Runners, University of The Philippines Group and meets every Tuesday evening at 6:30pm.
