This quick adventure started when my friend Arvin from YES FM Cauayan called me up one day and asked me if I can help out in mounting a marathon in Cauayan, Isabela. I agreed and we’re been working at this project for months then we finally flew in together with Coach Norman, Lala and several other friends to Cauayan to support the race on Sept 30.

Isabela is one of the biggest rice and corn producing provinces, so green is all around, this was my first ever provincial race, and I’m quite surprised about the number of runners who participated in our event, it was also heart warming to meet some Pinoy Fitness readers who participated as well.

It was a simple 10K out-and-back route for the 21K and we’re all done. Yes to Fitness was a success and we’re looking forward to making it bigger and better next year! Since the event falls on a long-weekend, we’re actually excited about our next adventure as well. So here is our Quick Northern Adventure in Photos…
