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.

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.

Exploring San Francisco in a day is not enough. And so the following day, I thought of coming back—via public transport! Here’s the story of my solo flight to SFO, mostly in pictures.
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.

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.

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.
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.
