Images from the Xterra Philippines

Three of my colleagues walk up the road with the old Spanish lighthouse in the background. It was a hot and grimy morning. But once we got close to the sea we could feel the breeze and taste the salt in the air. There's something about lighthouses and the mystery of the sea that draws me. That's saying a lot because I am frightened of the deep.

This triathlete came out of the gates a little late. He was far from finishing in the Top 10 but the objective for many is to finish. That's the true accomplishment. The runner sets out on a lonely run.

Staring at the sea. A race marshall watches the swimmers alert for any sign of trouble.

Senator Pia Cayetano emerges from the swim leg and removes her gear on the run. I thought that she was buoyed by the cheers from the crowd that yelled: "Let's go, Sen!"
