Surprise, surprise is how I should summarize this because I was not really planning to run here but my very generous friend sponsored me a kit. I also viewed this as a perfect training run for an upcoming longer distance race and because my kit was for Sub-3, I really planned to take my time to complete the whole distance.
This was also my first long distance race after Kasama Run held last September. Read on below to know more about my run in Pinoy Fitness 21K Challenge 2017 last November 5, 2017.
Hi everyone! This post is a bit late but I shall do my best to narrate our experience last October 28-29 in climbing Mt. Pigingan, my 52nd mountain and my comeback hike after three months.
Location: Dalupirip, Itogon, Benguet
Trek to Summit: 4 hours
It was such a refreshing feeling to be able to go back to the Cordilleras again. And although I have slowed down from hiking, I am glad to have been able to remember the exhilarating feeling of reaching the summit. Read on below to know more about this hike.
Last September 16-17, I was finally able to go to the beach for some much needed relaxation with my friends/officemates. But before the relaxation, we volunteered through DENR for the 32nd International Coastal Cleanup which was simultaneously done in several countries.
It was just the perfect balance of work and play as we explored the beautiful province of Zambales.
Hi everyone! Last week, my photographer and runner friend, Tristan (you may remember him from some of my run posts and my first collaboration blog post) and I went around Manila to conduct our second collaboration post to try his newly bought 50mm lens.
And if I may say so myself, the shots turned out great! Read on below to check my most favorite photos.
Hi guys! It has been a while since I last posted a content after my trip to Canada post. A lot of things have happened but I want to focus on the recently concluded fun run event, Pinoy Fitness Kasama Run 2017. This was my second time joining this event (read last year’s post here) and I do not regret it because I definitely had fun running alongside my elite running buddies.
Hi everyone! I have not written in a long time because I was busy enjoying my so-called ultimate vacation of 2017 which happened last June 8 – 24, 2017. I just came back from a trip to Alberta, Canada which, for me, is one of the best vacations I have ever done.
Because it was a long-time dream of mine to be able to visit Canada, I immediately grabbed the opportunity to get a tourist visa when I found out that my parents were planning to go this year. Luckily, my application got approved and so we proceeded to buy plane tickets.
It was a long time coming but finally, it happened and boy was it worth the wait.
I have nothing but love for Canada and this post will tell you all the reasons why.
Last June 11, I ran a short distance race in OYM Trilogy 2017 Leg 2. I have not joined a fun run in three months so this was a great way to get my rhythm back. I got a kit just on the week of the run itself so I was serious in squeezing in training time for that week. I was only able to conduct one training run for the whole week because of an unexpected accident that befell my toe just three days before the race.
As much as I wanted to beat my PR, I knew that chances were extra slim because of the hiatus and the added injury. But, I looked forward to it, nonetheless.
I have always been into fashion ever since I was little. I believe that this is one way of expressing myself without the use of words. More often than not, I always make sure that I look presentable whenever I go out of my house. In this post, I will be sharing the results of the photoshoot I had with my runner and photographer friend, Tristan, at Bonifacio High Street.
This was actually my first real collaboration with a friend so I got very excited. I have not made fashion-related posts recently and I saw this as the perfect opportunity to make one.
We scheduled this on the weekend after I got back from my hike to Mt. Halcon and I was grateful to my friend for being able to make time for me despite his really packed schedule that weekend. (Note: He was booked for XX number of photography events for the whole weekend!)
Hi everyone! I just got back from my longest and most difficult (Yup, Mt. Amuyao has been replaced) hike in Mindoro, the mighty Sialdang or more popularly known as Mt. Halcon – my 48th mountain.
Elevation: 2580+ MASL
Location: Baco, Oriental, Mindoro
Difficulty: 9/9, Major Climb
Trek to Summit: 19-20 hours
Prior to this hike, I did not have any form of training at all because of recurring leg injuries that I had to rest properly and thus resulted to me having an extra difficult time during the hike proper. Nonetheless, I am really grateful that I was able to finish it. Read on below for the full story of our four days and three nights of exhausting but extremely fulfilling hike.
