Reading Haruki Murakami's "What I Talk About When I Talk About Running" while on a short getaway at The Farm at San Benito.

"Somerset Maugham once wrote that in each shave lies a philosophy. I couldn’t agree more. No matter how mundane some action might appear, keep at it long enough and it becomes a contemplative, even meditative act."

I used to run with my blockmates around Acad Oval at UP back in college. I'm not really a runner - I don't run marathons - but I like running. It clears my head, as I often say.

These are where I've run in the last three years.
