Highlights 2018

2018 has been a very slow year as far as this blog is concerned.  This is probably one of the years with the least number of postings that I made but fortunately there are still a lot of great things that act as silver lining to an otherwise jaded year.

A Triumphant Weekend at CamSur with TRI-Factor

I can’t believe it’s been almost a month now, but I still remember those days at Camarines Sur which started my back-to-back triathlon weekends.  For posterity’s sake, here’s my look back at that epic weekend with TRI-Factor.
