Running about in Metro Manila’s Roads: Cramming for RU2

Time flies when you’re having fun, and also when you’re quite busy.  Being a one man team at work made me forgot all about the rest of the world and before I noticed it, it was just a week before it’s time for my first 32K of the year, Run United 2 (due this Sunday!).

Long time no see, BGC

Makati Route #2

I guess I wasn’t that satisfied with my first Makati-based run so the following night I was again out on the streets and seeking a new route.  This time around it’s a notch longer and ending on a different spot.

For this night’s run I decided to pick a different spot to end my run—different but still familiar like the night before.  This night, I thought I miss Ortigas Center, so I decided to head towards the area, perfect fit as I seek a slightly longer route.  The big question of course was which route to pick among a myriad of options?  In the end here’s the outcome:

Visita Iglesia 2011

Visita Iglesia (Spanish: church visits) is a tradition here in the Philippines of visiting seven churches on Maundy Thursday as penance.  Some people expand it to 14 churches with each one representing the Stations of the Cross.  For this year I decided to start including this in my Holy Week habit but unfortunately I didn’t know that it should be on a Thursday, so ended up doing it on a Saturday, with an unexpected extra two churches!

Feet ready...

Don’t you just love it when you break the monotony of your everyday routine?  Well, yesterday wasn’t too far fetched from the usual, but it definitely was unconventional.

Double Millionaire

If meters were currency I would’ve been double a millionaire as I’ve earned my two millionth meter last night, or 2,000 kilometers, since I started running almost two years ago.

So many obstacles hampered this long sought after but very much delayed milestone of mine, mostly for reasons of injuries, but as I gradually recover, so did the kilometers.  And finally on the month that I started running two years ago I finally reached that target.

I really wanted to hit my first 2,000K by the end of July, but failed!  Then it was moved on August 1, and finally was able to do it last night, August 2, after one of those dreaded days at the office.  I think I had too much stress then that late in the afternoon my eyesight blurred for a few minutes, then replaced by a headache.  Add to that an hour of overtime!  Man, I almost thought that I had to postpone my run!

1991

What were you doing back in 1991?  Some of you may not even be born yet at that time.  Back then I was in my elementary school days and if you ask me I don’t really remember things that happened aside from schooling.  Looking up the major events that transpired the year via Wikipedia, here are some of the results I found:
