Scenic Places For Running You Must Visit

Let’s admit it, running can sometimes be dreadfully boring!  But it doesn’t always have to, especially if you’re running on picturesque locations.  I believe that the best way to explore a place is on foot, and here are some of the most scenic places I’ve seen through running.

You know more of a road by having traveled it than by all the conjectures and descriptions in the world—William Hazlitt

Back on the Trails of Hamilo Coast: Salomon XTrail Run

After a long time of hiatus from joining races, I finally got back.  And it was Salomon XTrail Run that got me back on my feet for my first race of the year.  I can’t say no when Salomon invited me, and I can’t miss the chance of running in one of my favorite places in the Philippines, Hamilo Coast.

No Wonder Everybody Drives in California!

As a runner, I always make it a point to know a “new place” on foot.  But as I got to know a piece of California better, I soon realized why everybody drives in here.

And most likely it is not because of the price of petrol

Extraordinary Cavinti

A few weeks ago, this little known place in Laguna called Cavinti held its first organized trail race.  Until this race, I’ve never heard of this place.  And after this race, Cavinti is a place I won’t soon forget.

Running with “Walkers” at St. Peter Midnight Run

Halloween.  For the first time, I’m doing a Halloween race on a Halloween night itself.  And for the first time, I’ve attended a Halloween race where practically everyone is in costume.  It’s going to be a “thrilling” night.

Rexona Run 2013: Ran to the Beat, Beat the Sun and Beat Myself

It was another sleepless race.  A half marathon starting at 3AM.  That’s got to be the earliest 21K I joined that I can remember.  You’d have to sleep before sundown if you were to get a good sleep before the race.

Back on the Road: Running Commonwealth Avenue and C5 (Again)

It’s been ages since I last run on the road outside of races and I’m glad I finally did!  I didn’t join any races for the month of September but I’m glad that something came along to motivate me out of my bed.

Don’t you just love Sunday morning traffic? :-D
