Bohol + Cebu (2014): A Glimpse of Sinulog

The low pressure area prevailing over the Visayas and Mindanao region had made the seas more wavy than the usual making our trip from Tagbilaran to Cebu much, much longer.  The rains had not stopped either, but our spirits weren’t dampen.

Bohol + Cebu (2014): The Churches of Bohol

Every year for the past four years I’ve been constantly going to Cebu to start my year with Cebu City Marathon (CCM).  This year was no different, except that the places I love had changed due to the strong earthquake that rocked the region last year.  With that, my itinerary had also changed: I decided to just donate my CCM registration fee and support the locals in my own small way by visiting the areas affected.  I fortunately had planned for a four day getaway so I had time to explore both Cebu and Bohol.

Goodbye for now, Manila!

Cebu City was the real destination for this trip so early in the year, and as a runner Cebu City Marathon was naturally the expected reason, but this time it is not.  The real reason behind this trip: to go to Basilica Minore del Sto. Niño to give thanks for all the blessings.

Cebu Lechon Chronicles: Historic Tour

For my last day in Cebu it was a must for me to revisit the sites I wasn’t able to visit the last time I was here, and the first one on top of my head was of the Basilica Minore del Santo Niño.  Since the location is in the vicinity of historic sites, a historic tour it is for my last day in Cebu.

Ready to head out...

Cebu City Quickie

Cebu was one of the destinations I’ve always wanted to visit for the longest time mostly because of my fascination with Philippine history.  Unexpectedly, that wish came true!  But there’s a catch—the trip was merely for only a day and a half!  And here’s how this “surprise” trip came about.

A Weekend of Adventure (Preview)

This weekend is one of the busier weekends as far as running is concerned: five races are simultaneously held, two of which are in Bohol!  Beginning with Metro Manila: the FINEX Run in SM Mall of Asia, The FS Run is Bonifacio Global City, and The Green Mile in Ayala Alabang.  Elsewhere, in Bohol, there’s the Tagbilaran leg of the National MILO® Marathon, and The North Face Thrill of the Trail in Danao.  It’s probably the same time that I saw two races simultaneously held in a province.

Five races, one long weekend
