I Followed My Heart and It Led Me to ‘Mt. Pandadagsaan Road to Trail Extreme’ Marathon
I’ve followed by heart, and it led me to Mt. Pandadagsaan—to trails only heard on tales, to experiences I’ll keep for life, and to people who were so generous with their time, heart, and effort. They say it takes a village to raise a child, I say it takes a whole running community to complete a marathon, most particularly if it is a road-to-trail kind of event.
Wet, Wild, and Roasted at Muspo 100

Far beyond the adrenaline, we got more than what we bargained for – unexpected lessons in history, taste of hearty dishes, immersion with locals, and memories to keep for a lifetime.
Fate against me; Why I still haven’t traveled outside the Philippines
Right now, I should be happily strolling around Beijing and Shanghai – learning about our cultural differences, exploring cityscapes, and finally savoring the fruits of a year’s worth of workload.
But I’m not. Instead, here I am at home, writing all these predicaments. Corona virus pandemic has changed everything that we so long planned for this year. Everything.
