I missed the Octoberun 08 last Sunday because of the recent road trip up north. We left Manila early Saturday morning and headed far north. After six provinces, we reached Ilocos Norte at 9:00pm. Laoag City. Just had a brief stroll around town with my family and immediately went to bed. Tomorrow is a Sunday and I should be running. As planned before, I will take my running with me wherever I go, so run I went that morning. I run towards the Marcos Stadium about 1km from our hotel and planned to do my intervals there but it was closed for renovation. Heading back, my feet brought me to the famous Laoag bridge, the entrance to the city. The view here is magnificent and there were about five joggers that I saw. The weather is good and the wind is cool. After running back and forth, I run back to the city and explore its clear streets. I saw number of people jogging maybe preparing for fun runs that the city is organizing. Good to know that running and fitness at our countryside is also flourishing.
After about 5km, I call it a day. I went back to the hotel, relaxed and prepared for another 100km journey up north. Another Sunday run. Virtually I had my Octoberun in faraway north.
