Every April 9, Filipinos remember the brave men and women who fought
the invaders before the fall of Bataan and Corregidor.
And since I am not yet emotionally, mentally, financially, physically and spiritually fit to
run the Bataan Death March Ultramarathon, I always wanted to conquer the historic
island of Corregidor.
I am looking forward for this race.
PS: The woman in my photo is my maternal grandmother, Natividad Sontousidad Tancawan vda. de Arreglo. When we visited Manila last December, our tour guide/driver, Sir Louie, toured us to the American Cemetery just before we boarded our plane. Lola here was searching for the name of her cousin who died defending "the rock".
