About Me

My Photo
I am a Bicolano by birth and choice. By any standards, I am a slow runner but I like it that way. I look at running as a healthy and exciting way to make a difference. Together with my fellow runners from Ateneo de Naga HS Class of 1983, First Balfour, LCA 8379, and Bagobos87, hopefully, we use running to give back to the community.

SUNGAY CHALLENGE ULTRA: Stories from the Front, the Middle and the Back Rows


EmoticonIn my article on the recon run for the Sungay Challenge Ultra (http://bicolanopenguin.blogspot.com/2014/07/sungay-challenge-ultra-marathon.html?utm_source=BP_recent), I succinctly postulated that the attraction of this ultra will have to be the 9-km breath-taking ascent up Tagaytay City thru  Ligaya Drive.

INDEPENDENCE DAY ULTRA MARATHON: Fire Over Cold


Ite,  inflammate omnia

EmoticonIn English, “Go set the world  on fire.” These were the words being used, on the  morning of June 14,  by the lively Fr. Jboy Gonzales of the Ateneo High School Campus Ministry as he exhorted  the parents to “burn baby burn” in being partners with the school in nurturing a culture of warmth among the students and the community.
