A Year of Running

My first recorded run was last February 12, 2011. It has already been a year since then.In one year of running, I had joined four running events and finished my first 3k, 5k, 10k and 16k runs. The results of these runs can be found here. Based from my Daily Mile statistics, I had ran a total of 241 kilometers and burned 6 pounds in doing so.
This year, I am hoping to finish the three legs of Runrio Trilogy. I had already registered for Run United 1 on March 4. By next year, my goal is to finish my first half-marathon (21k). For now, I should maintain that I run at least once a week.

Pinoy Jokes Android App

Sometime late 2011, I have been looking for a jokes app on the Android Market, specifically a Filipino one. I found only one and before you can read jokes, you have to pay. I wanted to make one but I did not have much time to code for it then.
Last weekend, while waiting for my officemates to get back, I planned to spend some time developing an Android App. I checked the Android Market and found out there are still no new Pinoy jokes apps so I decided to finally develop it. I used HTML5, CSS, Javascript, JQuery Mobile, and of course, Java and the Android SDK.
After a few hours, the result was Pinoy Jokes Android App. Its initial version was uploaded in the Android Market last January 30. The day after, I also did a quick presentation of the app in the show-and-tell meetup of GTUG Philippines. The latest version of the app now allows users to view random jokes and share jokes.
To download the app, go to the Android Market or scan the QR code below:


Pinoy Jokes Android App also reached the following accomplishments: Top Free Apps #15, Top Free Applications #7, Top New Free #5 and Top Free Entertainment #2.
