Eco-Trail Run & Tree-Planting at Bacnotan, La Union

January 30th, 2012 5 comments

I woke up with the view of the surfable waves at San Juan, La Union (Kahuna Beach Resort). The scene was so inviting for a quick morning run, but because I’m running late of our scheduled IT I wasn’t able to run. :(

I was still determined to run, so I made another plan to run. This time not on the beach but on the trail of our next destination- Holcim Cement Plant in Bacnotan, La Union. :)

Barefoot Beach Run at Lingayen Beach

January 15th, 2012 No comments

“It’s elevating and humbling at the same time. Running along a beach at sunrise with no other footprints in the sand, you realize the vastness of creation, your own insignificant space in the plan, how tiny you really are, your own creatureliness and how much you owe to the supreme body, the God that brought all this beauty and harmony into being.” -Sister Marion Irvine, 2:51 PR and 1984 U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials qualifier

Whenever I find myself in a new place especially a new beach, I will make sure that I find time to run (even if I didn’t bring my running shoes). And run, I did! This time in the historic Lingayen beach, Pangasinan.


After about a kilometer of walking from the President’s Hotel in Lingayen Pangasinan towards the beach, I did some stretching and warm up. I was amped to run so I did some 2K warm-up.

Warm up (used my 10-sec timer)

Back to Running at Rizal Boulevard, Dumaguete City

January 11th, 2012 1 comment

I did this rave run at Dumaguete City, Negros Oriental after a month-long hiatus last November 14. Yep, sorry for posting this tooo late.

Dumaguete City is known as “The City of Gentle People,” this chill city is also the home of Silliman University. 

I had a very scenic run at Dumaguete City’s Boulevard all the way to Hayahay. I felt like it was my first time running. I was trying to catch my breath, trying to feel the rhythm, the coordination of my strides.



When I felt some perspiration on my forehead, I tried to run faster. In my mind, I can still do a sub-5minutes per kilometer but my body doesn’t want to cooperate. I was having a hard time breathing. I can feel my belly, that I gain 4pounds. But I continued… until I reached Hayahay, the place where we partied 2 nights ago. It was a nice place, the music was great because it reggae. How I miss Dumaguete City- that laid-back town full of foreigners.


What’s good on my route is the century-old Acacia trees that line up the boulevard, the relaxed locals having some leisurely walk/jog, the white lamp posts and the nice red-tiled avenue beside the sea. It was a beautiful landscape!




Date of Run: November 14, 2011 (Monday)

Route: Back and forth at Rizal Blvd then out to Hayahay and back, Dumaguete City

Distance covered: 6 Kilometers

Pros: Running along the Dumaguete Bay was refreshing. The Rizal boulevard is one of the best boulevards in the country.

Cons: The smoke pollution on my way to Hayahay. There are lotsa car and tricycle on the highway.

Time: 36minutes (6:00/km)

Temperature: 29°C

Running Apparel: Diadora singlet, Reebok running shorts, Puma socks, and Brooks T7 Racer.

can i call this the laid-back run? or maybe chill run?
