Rosalinda Ogsimer is a 69-year old ultramarathoner. She lives in Parañaque City, Metro Manila. She has a very supportive husband with whom she has four children. She did her first half-marathon at the 2013 Run United Philippine Marathon while her first full marathon was at the 2015 The Bull Runner Dream Marathon.

She was motivated by her eldest son who is a triathlete. Her first run was a 5K at Greenfield City back in 2012. Her training regimen includes running three times a week, 5K to 10K on weekdays and 16-21K on weekends. She also takes multivitamins, vitamin C, and B complex.

Her typical day starts by waking up at 3:45am especially every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.  Running 5K, doing exercise in her little gym at home, doing treadmill and bodycraft.  After that, she goes to work as an assistant to her husband’s clinic.  She sleeps around 10pm after watching her favorite TV series.

Her words of wisdom: “Determination, perseverance, and regular practice are important.”
