Scenic Places For Running You Must Visit

Let’s admit it, running can sometimes be dreadfully boring!  But it doesn’t always have to, especially if you’re running on picturesque locations.  I believe that the best way to explore a place is on foot, and here are some of the most scenic places I’ve seen through running.

2010 in Pictures

2010 was the year running took a backseat from my list of activities, but in between my great hiatus there were some interesting events that transpired.  Here’s a look back at how 2010 was for me:

The Beach, the Bridge, the Sails, and the Sands: Dinakdakan Chronicles (Day 4)

With an amazing race finally over everyone now has time to finally relax.  Coincidentally, the hotel that we checked-in in Pagudpud was also where I ate lunch the last time I was here!  As much as everyone wanted to check-in earlier to rest, we were able only to do so after everyone finished their respective races, which is already nightfall.  Unbelievable it may seem, but some of us actually returned back to Manila soon after the race!
