Meet Benjamin Alves, the newest endorser of Brooks Running Philippines.  Better known as the nephew of Piolo Pascual, himself an avid runner, Benjamin is slowly making waves in the local showbiz and modeling industry and curving a name in this very competitive and volatile field. And like his uncle, he too is an avid runner making time out of his hectic work schedule in order to run for 5K. Sometimes he does this going to work or right in the middle of an engagement in place for a siesta break.


Here is a video he made for Brooks: “Why Do I Run?” where he shares the reason why he loves to run. Shot in one of the running havens in the metro, Bonifacio Global City, this shows Benjamin in various running sequences as well as gym workouts as he enumerates his reasons for running and what it brings to him. “… Makes you feel better, makes you go to work easier…. I get excited when I run, I have more freedom with whatever I wanted to do”, he quips. “You don’t know your limits and you should not quit.” He added as his parting statement.


Be inspired by the local showbiz’s current toast and run!  Might as well do that in the brand of running shoes awarded for several years in a row as the Best Running Shoes by the authority in anything and everything running, Runners’ World Magazine.
