Remember my post on Running or Surfing in Siargao Island? I was able to do both! This is one of the perks of being a youth minister- I am able to travel (and run) while helping young people by sharing them God’s purpose in their lives.
This is one of my rave runs in Siargao Island. Lot of things I love in one setting: Running, Beach, Travel, Experience, Youth, Sunshine, Breeze and Being Free.
Half-Naked and Barefoot Runnin’ at Garcia Beach, Sta.Monica
My youth group watching me run after our prayer time.
Since I started running, it would be impossible for me not to try the grounds of which I am standing. Call it addiction to running? I call it a way of life. I feel free when I run. I experience God in every step that I make, appreciate God’s design for my body in every stride I make. I am thankful because I can run.
Runnin’ Barefoot makes me free. I love to step on the sand feel the earth. I love the waves on my legs, the fresh air, the coconut trees that add green, the summer breeze, the sunshine over my face, the perspiration all over my body, the parked boats, the drift woods & dried seaweeds and the picturesque clouds. How I wish there are beaches near Manila or Laguna where I can run barefoot too.
I want to tell more stories but I guess the pictures would better tell them:
Look at the sand with all the dried seaweeds and drift woods- so virgin!
I love my form here plus the small waves kissing my legs and feet
Even I ran back and forth a lot of times, “boring” never came to my mind.
My footprints in the sand. How I wish I’m with someone special during this rave run.
