TNF’s Thrill of the Trail – Bohol: should I run or shoot?
TO SHOOT or TO RUN?
This basically is plaguing me now for The North Face’s Thrill of the Trail – Bohol trail running race. So trivial, you might say, and two friends already asked me to join as they will also be registering. Many ungo runners from Cebu will also troop to this neighboring island. Also, there is only a limited number of participants so as not to have a big impact on the trail path.
A part of me wants to experience trail running. I used to climb mountains in college and during my stint in Smart and getting acquainted with the hills again would be most welcome. Doing the trails is also a change to my usual road runs and races. Then I have to buy new trail running shoes and perhaps some accessories which might set me back a couple of thousands of pesos, even with TNF’s 20% discount coupon with price points starting at 6,000 pesos.
A part of me also wants to shoot. Just imagine the rugged terrain of Danao, the expression of the runners and the exhaustion that I’m sure they will be experiencing. All these are ingredients to a good sports photo shoot.
If given the choice, I would prefer the latter. I want to build my portfolio and the TNF Bohol trail run will be most welcome. Come Monday or Tuesday, I will know if I will either run or shoot.
Note: I’m not sure why but for Metro Manila registrants, they’re charging P500 while provincial ones just P350. Check their website.
