Afternoon Urban Running Katipunan-Marikina-Katipunan

Three o'clock in the afternoon, no classes today. Hello running shoes. Feeling lucky, I just run out of our gate bahala na kung saan makarating.

Urban running is dangerous. Delikado ang mga  motorcycles. Pati side
walk na dapat sa tao, ginigitgit. Ang hirap tumakbo ng ang daming
iniisip, e.g. SAFETY MO! hehe

It's hard to compete with vehicles.

Facade, it's just a face, behind the walls are eye sores. Indurstrial
Valley, Marikina.

At siympre, naki-party muna ako sa mga bata  :D
Conclusion: Urban running Katipunan-Marikina-Katipunan in the afternoon is difficult and dangerous. Other than running, you still have to think of your safety. The motorcycles, they get into my nerves. They think they own the pedestrian side walks. I think urban running is really more like urban hiking, you have to put it in its proper perspective. Appreciating the city, meeting people, reflecting, being grateful - I think that's what it was about.
