Look Who Made It To Runner's World Magazine...

Look who made it to Runner's World Magazine (Philippines)! It's my running buddies Dennis (A.K.A. Running Fatboy) and Per! 

They ran the Disney Marathon in Florida, USA. That's one of my dream marathons to run. Dear Universe, now that I've crossed the Angkor Wat marathon off my list (Thank you!), can I start planning my next destination run? *wink, wink* ;)

Postcards from the Temple Run (1st Angkor Empire Marathon 2014)

Siem Reap, Cambodia-- I couldn't help but take photos during the race (so distracting though. haha). Saying that I've immortalized this run would be an understatement. You simply cannot capture the full majesty of Angkor, but I hope that you enjoy "running with me" as you sit back and mentally plan for your (future) Temple Run. 

Enjoy! ;)

Disclaimer: Trigger happy runner. Bandwidths, please bear with me.

Philippines... Present!
L-R; April, Joel, Jinoe (of Takbo.ph), Roselle (Running Diva), and me. 

At the 42K starting line.

The city of Siem Reap at dawn.

En route to Angkor.

Cows to keep us company.

Evenly spaced out water stations.

Sweet green bananas at the fueling station.

First of the many temple sightings.

The heat is on in Angkor.

The Bayon Temple is awesome.

Right on.

Coffee break at the half way mark.

Jinoe (of Takbo.ph) running strong.

They say marathoners are crazy, border lining basket case. I agree.
(Now, where's that basket case badge of mine?)

At around this point, don't mind if I do!

Photo op here.

Welcome to the countryside.

Smiles and cheers from the kids of Cambodia.

Much needed cookie rush.

It's getting hot...

You can't help but slow down before you pass these entryways.

Long, dusty... takes your breath away.

The Elephant Terrace perimeter.

The Bayon Temple. A must. 

Elephants and runners crossing.

Almost there. Traffic!
Angkor Run Finishers! Hooray!
L-R: Joel, April, Roselle, Jinoe, me, and my sister, Jeanne (10K).

Paces & Places: 5:23 A.M. And A Cheerio Mornin' To You


Early morning breakfast outside the gate. My run buddies are running late!

I know that I should be on taper mode in preparation for next week's marathon, but it's been a while since I've woken up to the sound of a "nice day" instead of the pitter patter of rain, that I couldn't help but squeeze in a last minute run. 

Hope everyone's having a great weekend as well! :)
