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..

EmoticonDecember 31, 2013, our son Marcel celebrated his 15th birthday. 

I had the honor and pleasure of joining him on  a 5-km run around the village. This was at 6pm before we went to the New Year’s Eve Mass at 8pm.

It was an enjoyable run for the both of us. He was wearing the new Skechers shoes we gifted him for Christmas. The two of us engaged in some trash talking along the way, he referring to me as "old man, old school" while I retorting back at him as the "amateur." 

At the end of the run, age clearly showed as he out-sprinted me by almost 50 meters. My Hoka did not save me this time. Hahahaha..........A consolation is that this is Day 10 of my running streak.

New Skechers for Marcel

We are truly blessed to have a wonderful child. He is kind and understanding. He is smart as well. A  bonus for me is the fact that he likes running, too.
