Running is life. Running, as a sports and fitness habit, was highlighted yesterday at the continuation of the Watsons Health Expo 2024 at the SM Megamall Megatrade Hall.

Popular running organization WeKenRun and TV’s sports and wellness aficionado Kuya Kim Atienza helped highlight Day 3 of the country’s biggest health and fitness expo that drew experts in various wellness as well as sports celebrities.

WeKenRun head coach Ken Mendola, who did a running demo among the participants says, “Running is making a comeback. Starting the previous year, races are in full swing already.”

Even newscaster and now fitness enthusiast Migs Bustos got encouraged, “Running is a mainstream sport already. I’m surprised to see a lot of running groups being formed. When I was starting out with running,I could only see a few running. But with the marathon that I’m doing, there are more than 5,000 participants. 

Participants enjoyed the running demo session

Patrick Rubin, WeKenRun member and founder of Run with Pat community, “There are a lot of things to discover among the runners that they can compete internationally just like Kenyan Marathon Star Elliot Kipchoge who’s only 5 ‘5. In running we don’t really need the requirement whether you’re short or tall, what’s important is the cadence.  

The third day was also highlighted with a segment by weather anchor and trivia man of Philippine TV, Kuya Kim Atienza with his talk, “Be your best with Vitamin B!” for Watsons Generics and immediately after, was a discussion about “Efficacy of Glutathione in Lozenge Form” by Thiocell Glutathione Lozenges featuring Dr. Catherine Porciuncula and facilitated by Ariel Aganon.

More celebrities flocked to the event, one after the other, with Jessy Mendiola adding luster to the event on her segment with Health Fusion where she talked about her secrets to her limitless beauty hosted by Monster DJ Gayle. She was then followed by yet another radiant celebrity, one of the successful actresses of her generation, Kristine Hermosa. Kristine had an alluring talk about her Japanese Collagen Experience care of SKJN Collagen, with the segment facilitated by Billie Hakenson.

And since this day focused on skin care from in and out, it didn’t miss featuring world-class and one of the country’s popular aesthetic clinic, the Belo Medical Group with a talk on “Beauty From Within: Glutathione & Collagen 101” with no other than Cristalle Belo-Pitt herself, the Managing Director of The Belo Group. Shortly after was another collagen talk with Watsons, featuring Cassandra Chan.

The start of a healthy skin care journey, starts with getting to know your skin. And acne might just be another enemy in the dark. A “skin talk” about acne, its causes, down to myths and misconceptions was held by Celebrity Dermatologist and Skin Expert Dr. Jarische Lao-Ang

The event fruitfully ended with a talk on Family Made Easy with Non-Acidic Vitamin C, Fern-C and another Zumba session!
