I know. I haven’t run races lately. Not even a practice run. Well, after finishing the Bataan Death March 102 Ultramarathon two months ago all I wanted to do is just rest. And rest for me is savoring sleep and eat what I want. No run and just doing what I love doing, that is, visiting other places this summer.
Roxas City, Capiz: Seafood Capital of the Philippines
|Sta. Monica Church (circa1698) is made of coral stones|
Guimaras Island: A Visit to Trappist Abbey, Guisi (Nueva Valencia) Light House and Guisi Beach
|In this place, one can truly hear the sound of silence.|

|Guisi Beach Resort|
Calamba, Laguna: Birthplace of Our National Hero, Jose Rizal

Intramuros-Fort Santiago, Manila

I did run. Once. But seeing three stray dogs barking along the road in Roxas City, I had no recourse but do a quick U-turn. And there’s work. Yes, just plain busy this past month. But in time I’ll go back to training and may be joining a race next month. I just need to shed a few pounds though. This will be a lot of hard work, especially, in the core area. Oh well, that’s the price one has to pay when one gets lazy.
See you at the starting line soon!
