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.

Visita Iglesia (Spanish: church visits) is a tradition here in the Philippines of visiting seven churches on Maundy Thursday as penance. Some people expand it to 14 churches with each one representing the Stations of the Cross. For this year I decided to start including this in my Holy Week habit but unfortunately I didn’t know that it should be on a Thursday, so ended up doing it on a Saturday, with an unexpected extra two churches!
