38th National MILO® Marathon Finisher

27 July 2014 — Joining the MILO® marathon this year was not part of my game plan.  But I guess fate intervened when I suddenly found myself invited during the event launch and signed up for the full distance.

Takbo.ph Runfest 2014 Race Report

13 July 2014 — When I looked at my mobile phone clock it said it was 3:24 AM and I have a race at 4 AM.

I arrived at the race venue with just 10 minutes to spare. From afar IContinue reading “Takbo.ph Runfest 2014 Race Report”

Ecstatic with Unexpected Podium Finish

12 January 2013 — On my way out, a light rain began to fall and the sky was overcast.

18 March 2012 – I arrived at the venue very early, with enough time to leisurely walk towards the starting line. Along the way I passed lots of runners.
