  1. Hi John. First time visiting your blog and it’s very informative.

    Great to see that Jeff Galloway’s in Cebu. His half and full marathon training program was a life saver several years ago and I still use it today in preparations for long races. If anyone has a chance, please check out his workshop!

    Continue the great blogging. Looking forward to meeting you the next time I visit Cebu.
