This 2014, February 22-23 in the Philippines is proving to be a weekend where it seems the destination running stars are aligned.
Or in the parlance of lunar lovers, this is a once in a blue moon kind of weekend.
Consider the fact that there are 6 long distance destination runs, a handful of which are in exotic places like the trails in Mayon and Tanay, sand dunes in Ilocos and passing thru historic Baroque churches in Iloilo.
Laoag Marathon (42K)
1st Iloilo Ultra Marathon (55K)
Cagsawa Trail Run 3 (21K)
Love A Tree Year 3 Trail (32K)
Laguna to Batangas Ultra (50K) Ultra
Sierra 51050 Ultra (50K)
A lot to choose from. Sadly, the Bicolano Penguin will not be able to partake of any of these delectable destination runs. The penguin is engaged the whole weekend for a community activity in the parish.
This is making me feel blue indeed.
