Pagsusuri: My Trail Running Gear for 2019

What is up everyone, it’s been a while since my last post here. I’ve been more active creating content (memes) on my facebook page, so feel free to check me out there. Anyways, I finally had the time to create a longer post and it will be about the gear I use for trail running! It’s late March and the trail season has already begun so I think a good rundown of my equipment can help those looking for cheap but effective running essentials. As you all know, I am kuripot af so I’m always looking for the best bang-for-buck items. Let’s go!

Akyat: Mt. Damas and Ubod Falls dayhike

Sunday
November 18, 2018

Since I have no more races for the rest of the year, I decided to go back to my roots; hiking. It’s been a while since I hiked a new mountain. The last one was Mt. Halcon (Sialdang) back in holy week. So for this weekend, while Khat was training in Kibungan, I searched for an organized hike in the FB group CLIMBER. I finally decided on the semi-major hike in Tarlac, Mt. Damas.

Akyat: Mt. Maculot Revisited

Monday
May 14, 2018

It was a holiday this past Monday due to the local elections. Being an unregistered voter, that meant a free day for me. Fortunately, some friends of mine were planning to climb Mt. Maculot. It’s been 3 years since I last went there so I think it’s time for a revisit.

Akyat: Taal Crater via Tabaro Trail

Saturday
September 2, 2017

Finally! I have reached the crater lake in the famous Taal volcano. I’ve always passed by the volcano when going through Tagaytay, but I’ve never really put effort into going to it. Then on a free weekend, I saw my friend Enciong post about a hike to Taal, via a different route than the traditional “tourist trail.” I messaged him immediately to secure a spot. At first we were waitlisted, but then more slots opened up for Khat and me. Yay!

Akyat: Mt. Napulauan

Saturday to Sunday
May 20-21, 2017

Mt. Napulauan is a familiar mountain because my friends have hiked it before. Aside from that and it being very far from Manila, I didn’t know much about it. So when Khat told me that we’ll be hiking it, I had no idea what was in store. Continue reading “Akyat: Mt. Napulauan”

Akyat: Mt. Makiling Traverse

Saturday
May 6, 2017

Probably the most procrastinated mountain I’ve had the pleasure of finally climbing, Makiling is truly a wonder to behold. Even I can’t believe that I haven’t climbed this mountain especially since almost everyone in my circle of friends have done so. And they have even asked me to come with them on their return, but alas, no Makiling re-climb has taken place. Taking matters into my own hands, I found a free weekend and decided to DIY my way to this magical mountain.
