Trail Chronicles #5: Tinipak River and Rocks (Reblog from JazzRunner)

7.5 kilometers into the trails and this welcomes us!

7.5 kilometers into the trails and this welcomes us!

I haven’t really written anything for about seven months.

I sort of stop posting exactly the time I started seriously training for an important race I joined last year. Then I lost my url due to technical issues that I didn’t deal with earlier. I have so much in my draft folder waiting so please come back. I am now at (lost the .com account). I cann’t believe it only took two emails to fix it after months!

I’ve been sharing most of my adventures in Running, Swimming (yes, I do now!), Crossfit and life as it happens in my instagram account @xtineferrera. And I think my posts are becoming too long…so might as well throw those in here again.

Allow me to share and reblog our trail adventure in Tanay shared by Rene Villarta, Jazz Runner. I grew up in a town which is just a few minutes drive from Tanay but I didn’t know this beautiful place exists.

It’s my fourth trail run adventure and I am really enjoying these adventures (and misadventures) of running on different grounds (literally).

Thanks, PIMCO for taking us to your trail race route!


What a find in Tanay’s wilderness! We went back to Tanay for the second consecutive week to complete our unfinished business of test running the whole 32k route of the PIMCO Love A Tree Daraitan Trail Run for next week (February 23). With me this time were veteran ultra runners Tin Ferrera, Chito Carreon, newbie Rhett Del Rosario and our ever sprightly running guide, Emer of Pimco Sports.

We started off with a swath of a little air-conditioning as it was “Baguio-cool” at about 6:30am when we headed off to the trails and it’s a great way to start a run. By no means is this an easy trail as we had experience this ourselves during our first outing last week. We only did one way of the 9 km trail section that connects it to Daraitan Road on the way to Tinipak River and Rocks. Story here (trail-chronicles#4)
