The past 12 days have been incredibly fun and exciting for me. I started my adventure off with a short 19 hour drive to New Mexico to attend the first ever Carbine Class @bluesteelranch . I was able to push my @jprifles LRP-07 ultralight out to 800+ yards. Not only was it an amazing learning experience with my rifle I also had a wonderful time making new friends and getting to know my JP family even more.
After those 4 awesome days @bluesteelranch my next venture was to Texas to visit my family and spend some time on the range before heading up to @vs3gun the following weekend.
First, I had the opportunity to shoot with an awesome squad consisting of some of my teammates from @vortex3gun and @teambreda . @vortex_reub and @jeremynmoore busted their ass’s to make sure this was a great match to attend. The stages were creative and challenging and I learned a lot throughout the match.
I was also able to watch some of my friends run some great stages and place as high as 2nd place in their respected divisions. My match didn’t go as planned, but I was still able to get a stage win and have fun doing so.
Thanks to Rueb, @vortexoptics and all of #vortexnation for the support and the great laughs we had. This last weekend was definitely a memorable one.
Now it’s time to put the pump away and bring out my @bredausa 930i for some Heavy Optics. ***

Feels good to be back running at the end of the work day. Chasing the sunset on my favorite trail with a great friend. Excited for tomorrow’s run. Have a great evening, and even better Wednesday!
10km run done in gloomy and rainy weather today evening! Low key love running in the rain actually. It’s really soothing and today wasn’t particularly windy or cold, which made it even more enjoyable. I didn’t have too many issues during this run, just took each mile as it came. No compartment syndrome issues, but my right glute/hip felt kind’ve tight especially on hills. Definitely need to roll and ice like crazy before Saturday’s race. I haven’t been listening to podcasts the last several runs; I think I’m the kind of runner that needs quiet. Podcasts are fun and a nice distraction, but I tend to start tuning them out if I listen to too many. The first half of the run was nice and easy and time flew by, but the second half felt like it took forever. It’s annoying to run so incredibly slow during training, but I know that this strategy is what works for me on rest day so I don’t want to change anything.
When I run, I'm so obsessed by my pace that today I changed the settings on my Garmin so that I couldn't see how fast I was running and I just ran by how I felt. It was strangely liberating! Also this is my second fastest ever 8 mile run and the fastest 8 miles I have done since coming back from injury so maybe not knowing how fast I'm going is the way forward 🤣🤣🤣 Also that hill climb at mile six OMFG!!!! #runner#runnersofinstagram#ultramarathoner#ultratraining#100krace#62milerace#100k#62miles

It’s Taper Time! Was hard to run such a short run this morning. Body wanted to keep going! Starting to get restless now... hence the #marathonmaniacs shirt! 😆👕
Much nicer running at 5am, BTW. It was only 16C and beautiful out!
W14 | D1 | 3M Easy
🇨🇦Silly Canadian🇨🇦 It’s 33C out... Why didn’t you run this morning? 🌵☀️🏃♂️
Glad I only had a short run today. Hopefully my legs tanned a bit so my body isn’t still 3 different colours! 😂😂

Finished my ultra marathon for 41.12Miles/66KM and It took me 7Hrs 22mins.
The route is Discovery Gardens-LaMer-Discovery Gardens. Started exactly 7PM (April 22) and reached home past 3AM (April 23). This was a crazy and excruciating run, but worth it. #ultramarathoner#marathon#pinoyrunner#3fstriders#threefstrider
