Trail Run, September 2

Went out of the house at past 5 AM. It was a bit cloudy. Waited for Ben to pick me up near RCBC along Ayala Avenue. Ben asked me to wait for another extra minutes. To kill time, I went to a nearby Starbucks and bought myself a glass of milk and a slice of banana cake. Judah, always the earliest bird, was already waiting for us at Quezon City. We were running late. It was a relief, finally, when I got a text message from Ben that he was on his way to pick me up. With him were Chai and Brent. Then, together, we went back to Pasong Tamo to fetch Renz.

La Mesa eco-trail…simply breathtakingly beautiful–with those greenery and canopy of trees. A nice site to behold, indeed!

The 9-km trail run ended with a super duper lunch at Mang Jimmy’s near UP. One of the happiest runs I’ve ever had!
