Senti over Cebu

Thursday, 6 January 2011  |  Bullish Insights

Just a few more days until the 2nd Cebu Marathon.  I won’t be flying in this time, but my thoughts will be with all the 6,250 participants (including over a thousand marathoners!) who have registered for the race.

– Thanks to race organizer, John Pages, for sending me this long lost photo just today! This was taken last year with Bea behind me.  Read more about our story here

I feel all warm and fuzzy when I remember Cebu Marathon 2010.  It was truly one of the best races I had run for the entire year.  Race organization was professional and close to perfect.  But, it was the warmth and hospitality of the locals that set it apart from all other races.  Now, that’s something not just any race organizer can plan for nor fabricate; it comes from the heart of the city and the soul of the people.

Good luck to all those running Cebu this weekend. I can only pray you have as much fun as we did last year!

To Maxi and my dearest Bea, I do hope you’re both joining the race again and that you do great!
