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..

Set to fly to Singapore to join this horde of thousands are fellow 83neans Ernie and Ed. Through the assistance of our classmate Bitoy, the two have been able to register for the full marathon of the Sundown. Together, these 3 runners will proudly represent our batch.

Last Sunday, several members of the Ateneo de Naga HS Batch 1983 converged in Camp Aguinaldo to  have a send-off for  our 83nean Sundowners. We had our weekly half marathon, comprising of 3 rounds of the 7-km loop inside the military camp.  Then, we had our customary kambing foodfest at the Soldier’s Mall.

You know your old and wise when this is the hat you wear when running.

All is  well. We think we will be hearing stories from the triumvirate soon. Emoticon
