Moreno Valley - 14.81km Adventure Walk

11May09 730am at Moreno Valley LA, still wanting to have a much lengthy continuous sleep after the travel from Manila, I was determined to logged my first work-out speed walk locally in preparation to my scheduled USATF Masters 15k Racewalk event which is barely six days away.

This is the first time I am visiting my daughter in her new place at Moreno Valley so I am unfamiliar with the local streets and traffic. With no definite route in mind to take, I told myself to just run 6km away from the house and 6km back to the house and that should give a good 12km work-out. Later I found out that this was simply said than done.

I started taking picture only after hitting the halfway distance on my return home given the confidence of knowing which route to take. Picture are presented herewith on a slide presentation;

I completed 14.81km at a speed of 7.21km/hr and pace of 8.32min/km for a total time of 02h03m17s. I exceeded my planned 12km distance by 2.81km which was due to my getting lost on my way back home.


  1. nice pictures. nice place to run with no pollution, no traffic, nice and wide sidewalks..and most of all nice weather. good luck on your race walk this coming sunday. regards to the family.

  2. Dear BR- Thanks looking forward to see you do not forget 23May09 lunch time will wait for you and the kids.

  3. Sir,
    Race walking in the Philippines has its share of best perfomance at the National Open Athletics Invitational Championship held last 10-12 May 2009 at Lingayen, Pangasinan. Micael Embuedo broke the National Record in the 20km walk with the time of 1hr 33min.50sec. by morethan 4min. the only record braker in the open meet. Christian Dalida fineshed 3rd in the Junior 10,000 meters walk. I finished 5th, Milbert Nabuab 6th place out of 14 starters. more so, I'm looking foward for more records to fall in the near future with your untiring support MABUHAY po.

    Coach Salazar.

  4. Dear Coach Salazar,
