2nd PAU Long Run Adventure

At the Airport in Manila minutes before the flight to Laoag.

Notes from Master CJ

See the Newspaper

Up in the Air

At the airport in Laoag minutes after disembarking.

At the Church We did request for a special mass particular to our intention. The parish priest was just overwhelmed at our desire that he immediately agreed. The whole group handled everything. The Choir. The Church Goers. The Offerors. The Collectors. All – one of us.

While waiting for the others

The Sardines Imagine. We have to hire a jeep to carry ALL of us from the Airport to the Church and back to the Resort.

At the Starting Line.

At the Rocks of Kapurpurawan Because we missed the camera man at the Burgos Lighthouse.

Masarap na Igado!

At the Windmills of Bangui

The Stretch to Finish Line Since we all raced the last stretch, I was almost all alone until the last 8.1 kms.

I am the one half-naked.

The Heroes Our magnificent team of support for the mid and sweep pack. Thanks so much!

They endured the full route too...
