I keep coming back …...

It has been a while since I ran the streets of Metro Manila. It brought about a sense of nostalgia – training again where you learned that you can actually run long distances; and of course, nothing beats the scent of Manila Bay plus the polluted air A lot has changed since then – new structures that have improved the landscape and the not so good ones as well. The development in the MOA area is really good, when I last ran this route , the Solaire Casino wasn’t there yet. I enjoyed the 26km run I did last Saturday since I was more interested in exploring what has changed in my “play ground” so much that I forgot that I was already tired. I personally think that Roxas Blvd looks better without the restaurants in the Bay Walk area – better for the environment too. It is good tho, that the air in the province is still fresh, thereby making our day hike to Mt. Batulao a refreshing break....

Lately, I have returned to sedentary-overworked individual mode. There were no regular training runs save for a few like the back to back weekend when I did a 21k on a Saturday and  then a day hike in Tarac ridge in Bataan the day after.  Should I mention that I slowed everybody down?   Thanks to Jeff for the photo I took a 2 week break afterwards before running again due to an ankle injury.  You see,  I wasn’t supposed to run yet but I was able to acquire a GPS watch ….. Timex Speed + Distance A bit cumbersome, don’t you think ? I think I have aggravated the injury, oh...
