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..

BOSTON STRONG MUNTINLUPA : 04.22.13



This afternoon, I was on the internet searching for a suitable symbol of the Boston Marathon that I could print on a  shirt which I can use in a half marathon I am running this coming Sunday, April 21. I am touched by what happened on that fateful day of 04.15.13.
