Last November 23, 2011, Senator Pia Cayetano launched her book, My Daily Race, at the Arya Showroom in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig, Rizal. I had the pleasure of getting a copy of her book during the book launch.

Cayetano entertained guests from the media, close friends, and people who shared her advocacies.

Despite being a senator and a mother, she also spends time staying in shape as a triathlete. You might think she has enough on her plate, but Cayetano does not seem to run out of energy when it comes to things she loves most.

During the book launch, I had the chance to meet Senator Alan Peter Cayetano.

Guests were given gift packs from RUNNR, a company that produces trainers, shoes, and other sports merchandise. In fact, the 1st hundred purchases from RUNNR stores until the end of this year will qualify for a free book by Senator Cayetano. Cayetano’s book is available for PhP499.

I also had the pleasure of tasting a few gastronomic delights. I know, I’m supposed to be there to support Senator Cayetano and her autobiographical account, but I have a soft spot for food, especially when it comes with wine. Winking smile

During the book launch of My Daily Race, different types of canapé, mini cupcakes, peanut butter bites, and tuna salad on cones were served. Coffee, chardonnay, and sauvignon were available.

Unfortunately, I was too lazy to dress up that night. I had to settle for the first thing I saw in my closet. Thank God the guards let me in. Ha ha, kidding!

Cayetano is a runner, swimmer, and biker. She believes that sports should be part of any youth-based program as it encourages fitness, leadership, camaraderie, team work, and a sense of accomplishment.

Cayetano’s book discusses her many passions, serving as an autobiography. Her first book to boot, My Daily Race is a testament to the fact that accomplishments are founded on hard work. “A sleepy tri-girl is made, not born,” Pia mentions in her blog, which was then quoted in the sixth chapter of her autobiography. There, she discussed how being a night person made it hard for her to wake up early and start running. I’m sure a lot of us can relate.

Cayetano’s book, My Daily Race, is a compilation of 206 full-color pages. If you missed the book launch, grab a copy now and learn the art of multitasking, making time, and pushing your limits. That, I can definitely relate to.
