About Me

My photo
I am a Bicolano by birth and choice. By any standards, I am a slow runner but I like it that way. I look at running as a healthy and exciting way to make a difference. Together with my fellow runners from our family, school, office and the community, we use running to give back..

TC2BS: Crossing the Longest Bridge in the Archipelago

Bridges have always been a source of fascination for men and women of all ages.  For many, it symbolizes progress, connections and stability. For some, a bridge is a symbol of hope. If you can just get over that bridge, you may find yourself in a better place on the other side. 

A feeling of hope.  A feeling that things will be better. Such was my feeling when I glimpsed the beautiful red arches of  the San Juanico Bridge on that balmy morning hours of the 20th of November in the year 2016. Up to that point, I have ran a total of 34 kilometers in a 50km race called the Tacloban City to Basey Samar ultramarathon (TC2BS). I guess the most apt term of my locomotion would  be "trudge" rather than "run."
