These past weekends, I ran at the elevated track of the Cultural Center of the Philippines (around the fountains) to simulate the high-altitude trail I'd conquer at Baguio City. And I trained in my Vibrams Treksport.
How was my first The North Face Thrill of the Trail experience? After watching this video of the easiest parts of the trail, you'll know what I mean when I say that it was breathtaking. Apologies if this somehow reminds you of The Blairwitch Project. It was hard to run while holding a Blackberry phone.
