These buckles are lovely to look, to hold, but if you run and finished, considered you will own it.  And that acquainted phrases, definitely would remind you of a toxic reminder of glassware section in any department store. In a serious note, to acquire these buckles, finishing a long distance running is a definite answer. And it’s a thing that ultra runners looking into. But running more than marathon distance is not a laid back object matter, otherwise a subjective. Simply because it is a test of mind and body. Ultra marathon distance is more of mentality and enough determination to triumph over everything from the accounts. Perhaps, it’s a matter of sweats, blood and tears.

I have lots of friends in running community, well aside from that mountaineering of course. But what made her unique is that her distance that makes her exemplary over other women. There are lots of ultra runners today but not typical runner like her. For her record, she finished her longest ultra marathon, the 300 Kilometer Butuan City to Davao City where she ranked 1st runner up with a clocked time of  74 hours 39 minutes and 45 seconds. This is just one, it will give you a total goose bumps knowing her entire record. Make headway, let us start knowing her!

 

She is SUPERSTAR in her race bib. She is a mother of two. A 37 years old stunner from Manila. A down to earth person and a good friend. A gym rat and a beach bum. Perfect instance to call her BBG (Basta Bisaya Gahi). Undisputed elite runner. She is no less, ROSELLE ABAJO of Team Soleus.

  1. Wow inspiring.. its not yet too late for us to be like them. It needs more on personal motivation. This is not to be like her or them who do the marathon. But its more on our health. Just like me who is obessed and trying fighting to get that normal BMI. I have started now walking into long KMs and hope i could start running and get that dream normal BMI.
