My preparation for my first Spartan Race

My preparation for my first Spartan Race

Hey Spartans! It’s me Marron talking about fitness. Something new yeah?

So with my great spontaneity after seeing this specific ad as I was browsing my timeline in facebook, I got curious about Spartan Race. They say, when you want to go somewhere you like and no one else wants to go, go by yourself.

I can’t think of the countless times I’ve asked people from my contact list to join me just to get a ‘no’ as an answer.

Damn. So first thing I did?

Northern Mindanao: to travel is to learn how to let go

I am in the middle of life changeover as I write this blogpost because the day before my flight was my last day at Starbucks Reserve. And before I move back in to our home in Quezon City and transfer back to my original district, I found myself lonely in a lot of ways… I never thought leaving the people I always get to see everyday for 3 or almost 4 months would be this heartbreaking. Swear. Everybody knows I wasn’t the sweetest and most clingy person in the room but to tell you the truth, sepanx is getting so much real. And to pre-fame you about this, this post might be about letting go and moving forward.
