Great pics from other bloggers/ Todo stuff before getting married

[Addendum: I've renamed the title for this post as this turn out to be a prequel to my post in 2nd July]

Last few days, a couple of great pictures was posted by some of the running bloggers. Awesome pics, and the kind that makes you wish

The first one was a great pic shared by sfrunner, the picture that says it all. This was way back when he was young lad in 70's, the picture reminds me of various essays of George Sheehan and how he would describe runners in the early days. And of course, probably the most iconic pic among the running bloggers here :-)

Then some really nice pictures posted by HighAltitude while doing trail runs in Mt. Batulao, medyo pang-commercial nga yung pics eh, I was half-expecting an endorsement for power drinks there somewhere hehe :-)

I wish I could post something similar, something that can connect and resonate the way sfrunner's picture does with others but since I have nada I'll just take my cue from one of the recent bungee jumping pics I've seen on one of the running blogs.




Yeah, in case you're wondering I was shouting my lungs out there.




This was the mindless jump (second) I did. I had the jump film, and this pic was a snapshot from it so it's a bit is granny. It was just crazy but heck of fun.

The La Salle Run is going to be tomorrow, good luck to all runners!

Gene, how did you get involved in bungee jumping? The photo is awesome! And I thought running and hang gliding were crazy!

Thanks for mentioning the pic. I'm looking for some older pics and my old high school yearbook.

Thanks sfrunner! the bungee jump was something I've been meaning to try, so when I saw one during my holiday, just took the plunge :-)

Thanks running fatboy! Actually, I got the idea of posting the pics after looking at the pictures in your travelogue (awesome as well!) :-)

Now I know what you're doing in the picture! Where exactly did you take that awesome plunge?

Hi Nora,this was taken while I on holiday in Great Barrier Reef in Australia. I read somewhere that the best way to conquer your fear is to face it head on, so I tried it there. I haven't figure out how to rip the DVD to mpg video and upload it, but in that video you can definitely see my knees shaking :-)

I thought it's just around the corner. Sayang! Try ko din sana hah hah ...

hi Barracuda Running,

Thank you very much for mentioning my mountain run pictures in your blog. I'm really appreciate it.

I can see that you really want to experience trail running. I could take you to Mt. Batulao if you want.

No worries highaltitude, those were awesome pics you posted, the pics where you leap to the next boulder was a bit too dangerous for my blood though :-)

Hehe, now that you've mentioned it, I'll take you up to your offer tp Mt Batulao one of these days.
