Yesterday, Good Friday, we did our own version of Visita Iglesia with my fellow Pinoy Fitness peeps. Our staring point was at Robinsons Galleria at 4 AM. We started our run to the first church at 4:30 AM, where me met the other members of the group. Here's our Visita Iglesia itinerary:

3rd Church at Pasig Simbahan
In total, we were nine in the group, Allan, Elvin, Jonard, Roxanne, Joyce, Joy, Christopher, Jun and yours truly.

We had several pit stops including the pandesal breakfast at Joyce place in Pasig which took around 30 minutes plus of our time, and many more stops including buying of drinks and food at sari-sari stores, convenience stores among others.

The weather was humid and hot with some clouds especially when we were at Taytay area going to Tikling Junction, it was so humid that I did not want to stop until we reached our 2nd to last pit stop at Junction Mercury Drug.
Last pit stop before the climb to Antipolo Proper
And at the last pit stop, less than 5K to the Antipolo Church, the lead pack including me talked that we will just see each other at the finish line as the others want to challenged themselves with the elevation. Time check is 10:16 AM.
The LSD lead pack at Antipolo City welcome arc!
Finally, the lead pack arrived at the Antipolo City at my time of 10:59 AM. With the total LSD run time of 6:29 Hours. Whew! It was my longest time on the road with lesser mileage of 27.6kms compared to my full marathon time of 5:30H.

But indeed it was our Visita Iglesia run, visiting seven churches in five towns! A great sacrifice with the heat and hunger :-) Til next year guys and gals!
