Want it ASAP? Look for Meyrick and Perl

Registration for the Mizuno-Asia Miles Sinulog Half-Marathon ’09 is now on-going. Apart from the Cebu City Sports Center and Sug-Angan Restaurant, two other registration centers have been added: the Mizuno shop at the SM City and the Holiday Gym & Spa in Banilad. Two categories are offered: the 5K Fun Run and the 21K Half-Marathon. Either distance is perfect. For those wanting a quick sweat under one hour, the 5,000-meter run is ideal; for those seeking a long-distance workout of two or more hours—go for the Half-Marathon. Scheduled next Saturday, January 17—the morning before Sinulog—the start and finish lines will be at the Asiatown IT Park. This event is organized by the Cebu Executive Runners Club, headed by its president, Jesse Taborada. But, being part of the CERC, I’d also like to commend the help of the co-organizers of this run: Meyrick and Perl Jacalan.

This husband-and-wife duo (who, respectively, ran the 42K and 21K at last month’s Singapore Marathon) are energetic, brimming with ideas, and indefatigable. They’ve scoured for sponsors (which include Mazda and Holiday Gym & Spa), created the logo, designed the eye-catching posters, prepared the singlet designs—they’re the perfect partners to collaborate with for an event. Best of all, they work quick… as in, ASAP. Which doesn’t surprise me considering that the company name of Meyrick and Perl is, yes, the aptly-named, ASAP Advertising
