Running In Historic Underground Cemetery,Nagcarlan Laguna


Last Friday, February 6, 2009…I do have a privilege to visit and run the historic Underground Cemetery in Nagcarlan Laguna. Since I’m alone, the only souvenir that I can show here is the marking/s of that place and some shots of me after the run.

The Nagcarlan Underground Cemetery is the only cemetry that is being used by the katipuneros as their secret meeting place built in 1845. Intended only for the burial of the rich and powerful of that town, this historic place is a thing to behold!

I was able to run a distance of 12.95 kms for the 1 hour and 15 minutes Easy Run, covering the entire town of Nagcarlan and passing this historic place. The climate too cool like that in Tagaytay and vegetations so great. Nonetheless, it’s another mission accomplish for me, conquering Nagcarlan Laguna by running!

Next mission? Villa Escudero in Tiaong Quezon…

God gave all to you, will you not give your all to Him?
