5 Reasons Why I Love the Earth Day Run 2012

The Earth Day Run 2012 (Dagan Alang Sa Kalibutan) held last Sunday (April 22) in Malaybalay City was only the third organized run I've joined so far this year. After conquering my first marathon in Cebu last January, succeeding runs in Bukidnon and nearby Cagayan de Oro City conflicted with some of my personal schedules so I have to beg off from joining them.

The New Look of Toby's Cagayan de Oro

I was able to visit the Lim Ket Kai Mall in Cagayan de Oro City last week and was pleased to see that Toby's Sports has undergone a major facelift. It is now called Toby's Arena and has a brighter and more spacious interior. Gone was the basketball goal for shooting and its place are more running products and the machine which I believe most runners in Cagayan de Oro and nearby places has been waiting for: Footworx Gait Analysis.

Long Run Surpise in Barangay Can-ayan

"THE JOY OF FINDING NEW ROUTE - Today you took a left rather than a right and suddenly found amazing views and a piece of solitude you never knew existed before now. Then you imagine how many runs there are out there waiting to be discovered." --from Runner's World 49 Reasons to Love Running
It was a Black Saturday morning when I and my friend James headed out for a long run to a route we haven't threaded before. We figured out that running around the Capitol Grounds could get boring sometimes. So we decided to try something different and opted to run to Barangay Can-ayan.

Trail Running with Journeying James at the Bukidnon Provincial Tree Park

Journeying James, one of the Philippines' most popular travel bloggers (he was once featured in GMA 7's Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho), arrived in Malaybalay City yesterday (April 3, 2012) as part of his epic 100 Days of Backpacking Around the Philippines journey.  I fetched him at the bus terminal and took him to the Capitol Grounds and Kaamulan Park. We then went to D' Stable Eco Resort (Quadra) in Barangay Sumpong where we meet up with fellow Pinoy Travel Bloggers member (and my officemate) Bon of Contour Blog.
