  1. I’m also a Marikenya by heart. I grew up in Marikina. I just had to relocate when I got married, and after Ondoy. I miss so many things about Marikina, one of them being the Marikina Sports Center. Too bad, I found out about this fun run only now. I’ve already made plans for this Sunday. I’ll keep visiting your blog for updates 🙂
