If there is one tip that you want to share to newbie runners what will it be? Based on your training efforts and discipline, set yourself realistic goals!
—————————————————————————————- That’s it! Hope you enjoyed our featured runners. Although they live in Baguio you can see them joining races in Manila for the love of running and Justin too! I had memorable experience staying at their place in Baguio. They are very hospitable and most of all, they make healthy runner’s breakfast and the best post-run shake! I would not forget that concoction!
3 things I cherish while hanging out with Team Logan: (1) I run with them on my comeback race on Baguio City, it should be 10K but we ran 13K. I love the idea of pushing Justin on uphills. (2) We met Eduardo Buenavista while having our speed training at the Baguio Teacher’s Camp Track Oval. (3) Their generosity- I would definitely come back to their place before this year ends.
PS. Hey Justin! I miss you, let’s run again sometime, hugs!
