- Bicolano Penguin
- 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.

This article by Noel “Ghibz” Guevara is part of the series that the Bicolano Penguin is doing on the recently-concluded 2014 Mayon 360 Ultra. Our years of experience participating in this most famous of Bicol ultras have shown to us that indeed the ultra way of life is full of color and challenges. Who better to write a story about it than Ghibz who is one of the more engaging and eloquent classmates in the Ateneo de Naga HS Batch 1983. He had a “shortness of breath” (SOB) experience after his gallant finish last April 5 but the way he handled the challenge that is the Mayon 360 showed to us all that the SOB decidedly stood for “story of bravery.
Now, I got your attention.
Our friend, HS batchmate and ultra-marathon ‘maestro’ Vicboy de Lima requested me to share my insights of my first ultra-marathon experience in the just concluded Mayon 360 80km Run in Legazpi City, Albay last Saturday, April 5, 2014 .
November 30, 2013 was the day of our running of the Lake Bato Ultra (http://www.bicolanopenguin.blogspot.com/2013/12/lake-bato-ultra-matira-ang-matibay.html). It was also a day of monsoon.
