    As much as I love running and biking, I’m yet to get a hang on swimming! I feel so ashamed on the fact….

    This event is also a great chance for the Philippines to showcase the beauty of nature. The views on the background are scenic and breathtaking.

    I have always wanted to witness a triathlon in person. I’ve seen one over television but because some parts were being cut, it looks rather easy. I know it’s hard and challenging though. Needs hard training for participants.

    I bet this would really a nice race. Love that the race track looks so rugged. Plus the Mayon as a backdrop would really add awesome vibe to it!
