Cebu Run Route # 2: “Hey, J!”
Now THIS was the running route that I was supposed to take yesterday. =)
I call this one “Hey, J!” because of the route’s shape. It also serves as a tribute to the Eraserheads. If you’re a die-hard fan of them like myself, you’ll understand what I mean.
From Castle Peak hotel (again), make your way to Juan Luna, then run at your own pace while not minding the vehicles and the people you pass by. Make sure to keep your eyes on the right – by the time you see the spire of a church, that’s your landmark to turn left. After turning left to M. Briones, just go straight all the way. But be mindful of the path you run as some portions do not have sidewalks. As such, there comes a point when you will have to stop and walk. Continue traversing the path until you see a flyover at some intersection. Once you hit that point, make a u-turn then run all the way back to the hotel. From this point on you will have no choice but to go along with the traffic (i.e. running in the same direction as them) so watch your back – LITERALLY – to avoid being run over by anything with 2, 3, or 4 wheels.
Route length is 5.25K. Do twice of this and you’ll be going a little over 10K. I just did a single “J” after work since I’ll have a long run this Saturday – I need to prepare myself for yet another half-marathon. =) This route’s even more carbon-filled because you’ll be plying a national road, so better get your lungs ready for this.

The route I’ll take on Saturday will pass through the Asiatown IT Park. When I’ve completed the route, I’ll post about it. Hopefully I’ll have pictures taken by that time.
