# 1 back to back !

the running fever is one fever that refuses any meds !! it isn't showing any signs of waning as the month of august will see 2 big events following one after the other. both events are repeats, meaning they have been staged the previous year(s) and are organized by reputable groups so runners are assured of excellent preparation and execution.

first to fire off the starting gun is the aboitiz group with the staging of their 2nd 'race to reduce challenge' on august 14.  in response to the clamor of the city's running community who are fast-becoming hardcore pavement pounders and asphalt eaters, they added the full marathon distance.  isn't that awesome ?

the following week, CDU's 6th university run urges runners to take on the '2-bridge challenge.' this is distinct from previous university runs as this year's event features cebu's 2 major bridges playing hosts to thousands of running shoes, slippers, sandals and definitely, some bare feet, too.  conquering dual bridges with a medal to boot -- isn't that awesome? 

did i tell you that cebu is a running haven?
