We just came from Baguio City to attend the wedding of my husband’s cousin TJ Ayson and Donna Ganancial. The wedding was held last February 7, 2009 in Baguio Country Club. I can say that I fall in love all over again. The wedding was so solemn, well prepared and so romantic that I shed tears while the couples were giving their vows (mababa lang talaga luha ko). Whenever I attend weddings, I can’t help but to envy them because I was married civilly, I believe that it’s ever girls wish to have their wedding dream come true.

These shots were taken after the wedding ceremony;

Trail Run on Mt. Sto. Tomas (Benguet)

January 2, 2009

Yes to trail

Off to my trail!

Woke up early this morning to climb up Mt. Sto. Tomas in Tuba, Benguet which wikipedia describes it’s topography is “generally characterized by irregular rugged terrain and steep slopes. It is a plateau with several mountain peaks rising from the table land itself. Mount Santo Tomas, the highest peak in the area soars to 2,252 meters above sea level.” It was a gruesome ordeal for me for the temperature was so cold and the air is so crisp that it was so hard to breath.

It was a run/walk trail for me, the road was rugged and steep. Considering that this is my first trail run it was so hard for me. I did this as a part of my training for the upcoming event this January 18 on Nasugbu, Batangas. I’m having jitters eversince my esposo registered me for the 10K event in The North Face “Thrill of the Trail”. I’m not quite sure if I’m ready for that event that’s why I’m doing everything I can in my power to ready myself. I’m setting my goal of less than 1hour 30minutes for me to finish the race.

My esposo, being a native from Baguio City educated me that the road we travelled earlier was called “fire road” which means “a gap in vegetation or other combustible material that acts as a barrier to slow or stop the progress of a wildfire. I was careful enough while running because you’ll never know when you’ll trip on a rock and stumble. I have to stay injury-free for my future runs. During the course of the run, my face and my hands felt numb because of the chilling wind. I have to stop once in a while to gasp for some air. My head even hurt because of the cold temperature.

Sarap pag downhill na hehehe

Overall the run was priceless for me, it’s my first trail run in Baguio City. I was with my esposo, sister and brother in law. And it is rewarding for me to know that I have accomplished this, being able to run/walk to the highest peak in Benguet. I’ve given myself a pat in the back and it certainly boost my running attitude.

Run-less week

December 20, 2008

I haven’t worn my running clothes for a few days now. My last run and bike was last Sunday on UP Diliman grounds (where I get to see Dingdong Dantes ๐Ÿ˜‰ ). I’ve been very busy these past few days, my esposo celebrated his 30th birthday last 16th, and my kid’s school schedule is hectic since this would be thier last week for the year.

For three consecutive days I have to go to my kid’s school to watch the school caroling, to watch my kids on their Christmas program and to attend the school’s Christmas party. I even had to stay up late to wrap gifts for friends and relatives. And still we’re not yet finish with our gift list. There are a few more that my esposo and I haven’t thought of what to give. The holiday is giving me too much stress, but hey, I’m a kid at heart when it Christmas Season.

And I beleive that next week would be even more busy. It would be our first time to celebrate the Noche Buena in our home. We usually do that either at my parent’s house in Laguna or at my in-laws in Baguio City. I’m quite excited and is still finalizing my menu for that evening. I’m thinking of making an eggnog for each one of us and some cookies, or roast a whole chicken. How about you?

I just hope that I get to run tomorrow on UP grounds before going to church, I’m guessing it would be my last run for the year. Merry Christmas!
