Coffee Run

 

This post is an affirmation of my love for my roots.  When I learned of  this running event in my beloved Coffee Town of Amadeo, where I was born and spent the first 16 years of my life,  I cannot help but give it my attention and share the news to my relatives and friends. 
I am also very happy that running has reached my town…I hope many of my kababayans will participate to experience the “high” of running and will eventually embrace running not only as a sport but as a way of life.
