This time my endurance will put on test once again and I will make sure to finish the race strong make it before the cut off time so that I will have the automatic slots for PTRA or Philippine Trail Runners Association. I just hope my training and preparation on this race is enough to survive and conquer this challenge. With the help of my new running form I am sure I can save my energy and run efficiently compare to my previous runs.

It’s not bad to dream and that’s my goal on this run. Pray for me and my trail running buddies that no harm be done to all us and that we finish the race without injuries and enjoying the adventure that is waiting for us. Our trail running experience is next please stay tuned and wait for our stories. Have a great day!
