My Long and Slow 21K Run: Kagay-an Festival Run 2011(Cagayan de Oro City)

I joined the Kagay-an Festival Run Year 2 in Cagayan de Oro City last Sunday, August 21, 2011. The run was held as part of the Cagayan de Oro Fiesta Celebration. A week before this run, I climbed Mount  Kitanglad for the first time together with some of my friends. The tough hike resulted to muscle pains in my legs and it was only three days after the climb that I felt a lot better. For that reason, I wasn't able to do a long run prior to this race.

My Next Run: Kagay-an Festival Run Year 2 (Cagayan de Oro City)

Yesterday, I registered for the Kagay-an Festival Run Year 2 at Max's Restaurant in Cagayan de Oro City. This run is part of the Kagay-an Festival celebration and will be held this Sunday, August 21, 2011. I am running in the 21K category (my second time) and hopefully I will improve my time from my first half-marathon run which is 2 hours and 20 minutes.

This is the race route of the 2011 Kagay-an Festival Run:

Registration is still on going, until August 20 at Max's Restaurant and La Cabana Spa in Cagayan de Oro City.

My last three runs have all been on trails and I am excited to run back on the road again!

Running Through Hills and Rivers: The 1st Intavas-Kibenton Eco-Trail Fun Run (Impasug-ong, Bukidnon)

The 1st Intavas-Kibenton Eco-Trail Fun Run was another tough and challenging race which I joined last Sunday, August 7, 2011. The route is only about 6 kilometers, from Sitio Intavas in Barangay La Fortuna up to Barangay Kibenton, Impasug-ong , Bukidnon. It was really, really tough as we have to passed through up and down terrains, muddy, slippery and rocky dirt roads. Along the way we climbed three hills and crossed five rivers of the Atugan Canyon Basin.
