Two weeks ago I became one of the newest members of Takbo.ph a blog and discussion forum about running in the Philippines. As a newbie in running I went through most of the forum discussions, feeling the community's air and figuring out if I am cut to learn a lot and enjoy myself. Lucky for me this is not a first in terms of being involved in a community of people with the same interest, wants and dreams. I found the group very warm and very receptive. I even found the brother of an old high school friend. I hope to meet other members soon. I hope to get first hand advices from the group's pioneers and wish that I could run with them too.
