The Year that Was

Today, the 27th of December marks the last 4 days of the present year.

It’s always nice to look back and reminisce about the best of the things this year has offered.

January 2012 – I bagged one of the hardest buckle to get. 🙂

February is a slack.

March 2012 – I finished the 2nd Tanay 50K Ultramarathon. One of the hardest short ultras. (for me).

April 2012 – I finished the 2nd Mayon 360 50-miles. One of the hottest and rainiest event of the year. (for me).

May to July is a slack. Lots of peak-bagging, though.

August 2012 – I finished the 2nd Fort Magsaysay to Dingalan Aurora 60K Ultramarathon. One of the hardest road ultras too. (for me).

September to October is a slack. Lots of cross-fits though.

November 2012 – I finished my 1st CM50 60K category. One of the toughest trail ultramarathon. (for me).

An Escape from the Usual

It was something I was actually looking for.

Away from everything.

Some private time alone.

Sweating.

Moving.

Keeping alert.

Pushing.

Persevering.

Keeping patient.

Talking to God.

Thanksgiving and praising God for His wonderful creation.

Drinking mineral water straight from the mountain.

No worries for a while.

Making do with what I have.

Sharing the trails with friends.

Enjoying every minute of the rush down a steep slope.

Cold bath after.

Common meal that tastes so special due to hunger.

Dozing off even for a while.

Going home renewed and re-energized.
