Bliss Run: Barefoot Running at Dahican Beach, Mati City, Davao Oriental

Barefoot Running in Dahican Beach

As I said in my previous post, I was away for 16-days backpacking Mindanao and during those 16-day journey I just ran thrice. Boo! I should have ran in the 10 provinces I set my feet on.

Anyway, I managed to run twice at Dahican White Beach, Mati City, Davao Oriental.

The morning run was one of a kind. The beach was unspoiled, the sea breeze uplifting and the sun welcoming. It was bliss at every stride and all endorphins in my body was flowing like crazy. It was like I was transported in another dimension. How I miss this feeling. My feet was just smiling as they were connected to the ground I’m treading.


BLISS at every stride.

Since I don’t have a Garmin, I just estimated the coastline and I think its about a mile long. I did 4 sets of run. What a perfect way to start my Skimboarding day!

After a long hiatus (I backpacked Mindanao for 16 days) just want to start up this blog again.

Just a quick note of thanks to RUNNR for their Twitter contest that won me Php500 GC for my tweet:

@RUNNRstore Coach Sid Vildosola inspires me a lot kasi even putol ung kamay nya, lumalaban parin sya sa mga walang kapansanan.nagcocoach pa!

When I claimed the GC at RUNNR Trinoma, I bought a RUNNR shirt right away.

Muchos Gracias RUNNR!

How about you? Who makes you perspire? Or to rephrase the question, who inspire you to run miles?

Hope to hear from you!
