Bay Area Chronicles: Way Back Home

It is always bittersweet whenever a trip draws to an end.  Most especially if you’re having a great time!  But going home doesn’t mean that the adventure is over! This is part of a series ① ② ③ ④ ⑤ ⑥ ⑦

Bay Area Chronicles: San Francisco Quickie

At long last, the time for me to explore San Francisco had arrived!  It was a challenge for me to go to San Francisco from Pleasant Hill as I don’t have a car, but heaven must be listening as a co-worker volunteered to give us a tour. This is part of a series ① ②…

Bay Area Chronicles: The Trip to the Other Side of the World

As the New Year arrived I told myself that it was time to get things around.  One of the things I committed to myself was to get back into travelling which took a back seat these past few years.  But I never expected that I’d be going out of the country this early, and definitely…

La Mesa Eco Park Quickie

It’s quite interesting that sometimes familiarity in one place is inversely proportional to your distance away from it.  The closer you are to it, the less likely you are to go to it.  And one such place for me is the La Mesa Eco Park.

Visita Iglesia 2013

Like many Filipinos, I commemorated this year’s Holy Week with a visit to various churches.  I realized that I wasn’t able to do this last year, so this year it’s a must that I outdo the shortcomings of the previous year.

2012: Last Hurrah

2012 had been one of the most “interesting” years of my adult life but unfortunately running took a back seat for me this year in terms of mileage.  That doesn’t mean though that there isn’t much to share about this year!  Here are ten (10) of my favorite posts for the year:

runningpinoy on TV

Remember my almost three year old article “Top 5 Best Places to Run in Metro Manila?”  Well, one way or another, it had spun off from the web to the small screen yesterday at the “Best Places to Run in the Metro” segment of Sports Pilipinas over at NewsTV Channel 11.  And of course, I…
