for more than a year, i have been dreaming to have this extraordinary running experience in one of mankind’s greatest monuments.

together with a friend and former colleague in san beda college alabang, we excitedly planned for this adventure and envisioned ourselves historically setting foot on one of the seven wonders of the world.

sadly, the financial aspect played a big factor why the realization of this dream is nil come may 18, 2013.ย 
but, hey, we are not giving up on this. ๐Ÿ˜‰
apparently, this year is not for us. who knows 2014 will be…or 2015, 2016, 2017…
got to start saving in my piggy bank now. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚
and yes…
train really very very hard for those stairs.

  1. Wow, that looks insanely difficult. I ran a normal marathon. I can’t even imagine the steps aspect. I hope you get to run your race one day!

    1. hi, samantha. i like your modifier “insanely”! you are absolutely right. hahahaha…

      i guess this is one of the appeals of GWM. just in case i make it to this race one day, i will just be doing a half marathon here. just the idea of running along great wall of china gives me a lot of excitement. ๐Ÿ™‚

      thank you very much for this message. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. What a good dream! I can’t imagine running on The Great Wall though. I visited once on a tour and it was scary to me. Maybe because I’m afraid of heights. And all those stairs would kills me.
