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..

2013 BATAAN DEATH MARCH 160k ULTRA: A Brief Look at 6 Finishers



The Bataan Death March 160K Ultra takes roughly 30 hours to finish. In that long span of time, it is inevitable that a runner and his/her attendant support crew get to commune with other participants. An eye contact here, a slight smile there.  If one has the luxury of time, one can even strike a conversation.

2013 BATAAN DEATH MARCH 160K ULTRA: Ernie Endures One Step at a Time
