This weekend, Cebu will be holding it's first ultramarathon. I have been running for 18 months already, but I haven't signed up for a single marathon, and have to complete my second Pikermi this January. The thought of conquering my first marathon is still quite daunting. But conquering an ULTRA, I must be insane by that time. 

Anyways, this post is dedicated to the brave men and women who will run from Mt. Manunggal (Cebu's highest peak) up to the Provincial Capitol. Good luck and Godspeed!
Oh, by the way, the next time I am going to meet the finishers, I have a monicker reserved for them...

Run for BB2-Run for Kids with Cancer

Dec. 5 must be the busiest day in Cebu's running calendar! Can you imagine there are SIX, as in 6 races will be held on this day all over the metro! I know most of you guys will either be in deep training for the January gig, or in Singapore or in Quezon City. But for those who want to join races on this day, it would be better to Run for BB2!

Why am I unabashedly suggested for anyone to join the Run for BB2? We'll this is a run for a cause! Proceeds for this event will help in the treatment for 7 kids with cancer. That will be great Christmas gift for these kids and their families. Second it has a great race course that included the dreaded hills of Banawa! Just take a look at the race map below. The course will provide a good quality workout for those preparing for their January gig.

 See, I hope I convinced you guys to join this! Don't be a grinch! Merry Christmas!

Haile's Back

I knew it! I know he'll be back! Good thing I did not write anything about his sudden and shocking retirement after his DNF in the recently concluded New York City Marathon, due to a knee injury. It was wounded pride that prompted Haile to decide on his retirement.

But he is a person who eats, drinks and breathes running! And I when I saw a tweet from the New York Times this morning regarding Haile's return, I was rejoicing!

Hail Haile!

I have to confess, I did not run this week.
Got burned out, 
In both work and running.
Anyways, I'll be lacing my running shoes next week.
And I cannot wait 'til next week because of this...

... and this.
