Who is RunningAtom?

RunningAtom Logo
My real name is Alfredo Vedarozaga - more commonly known as "RunningAtom" in the running community. Blogging has become my literary outlet of my unspoken ideas and some of my personal activities and experiences whenever I have time to blog.

I am a Programmer by profession and outdoors is my first love when I was yet a small child, bearing the heavy weight of asthma. Thus, it is also the outdoors that greatly contributed to my well-being.

With my small physique and being asthmatic, any physical sports and activity was a great challenge back then. There have been a lot of times that I have dreamt of myself in a coffin during an onset of asthma attack. I've also been dragged down by a buffalo, a cow, and even a goat from the top of a mountain down to the streams!

It was so, not until my first fun run participation in exchange for an exception from the Physical Education 1 (PE1) Midterms exam. It was then that my physical life had greatly changed from an asthmatic, weak, and feeble-looking guy to an athletically-slimmed, toned man (except still for the height)!

From then on, I started participating and enjoying my new found love for sports such as Tae-Kwon-Do, Table Tennis, Hiking, Mountaineering and Running. On my corporate 8-to-6 office-cubicle life, I take a joyful step with weight lifting to compensate my small physique (and height) and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Billiards, Badminton, Airsoft, Bowling, and other sports have also become my past time after a stressful office day.

My favorite distances are 10-km and 21-km, and I enjoy doing these under the mud and uneven dirt surface that we call "trail". In contrast, I have also raced longer distances from 32-km, to the full 42-km Marathon, and with my longest distance to date of a 50-km Ultramarathon. Right now, I am slowly evolving and embracing the Multisport scene, starting from Duathlons, into Aquathlons, and short-distance Triathlon.

My most recent races are obstacle run from the inaugural race of Spartan Philippines Sprint. Doing calisthenics as preparation was the great contributor for me to be able to take on and finish this very challenging and strength-draining race.
