The May That Was

Week 1
05.08.09 Climb at Mount Maculot. An experience worth repeating over and over again. For me.

We took the Grotto and the 45 trail to the ‘7/11’ of Mount Maculot, and down to the Rocky Road.

After a few hours of sleep…

05.10.09 Botak Paa.Tibayan 42kms. LSD

Now this is something I myself, never thought, I’d do. After only about 2 hours of sleep from the climb, off I go to the Starting line of Botak Paa.Tibayan.

Finishing after more than 6 hours, I was awarded with a Medal, sunburn, dark skin and loads of praises.

Week 2
05.17.09 An LSD from Tagaytay to Sta. Rosa Laguna. Finished in more than 4 hours the long and heated 33.96 kms.

The arrozcaldo and the cold drinks after made this run more memorable as it is. Thanks to Mhel. Thanks to Doc Eric.

Week 3
05.24.09 The Botak Baguio City Run 21Kms.

Now this is one nasty run. Nobody knew the trail. We were surprised to be tested here. 3 kms of steep downhill…and needless to say, where you go down, you go up. The pounding was just memorable. The cold temperature did help a lot.

The fun side of the trip is the sharing of meals where we stayed. Thank to Cherry.

Week 4
05.31.09 Earth Run 16kms. A New Personal Best Record so far. It was a drizzling morning run, nice and cool and so wet!.

The IE8 runners and the Earth Runners agreed to converge in McDo Net One. There, the fun just never fades.
