I am Richie Al Bertoldo Villagante aka Katol. (Don't ask why!)
I am a product of the first American School in the country. I used to be a broadcaster, a print journalist and worked with business process outsourcing.
Things changed for the better after my first ever race last January: my life, my love, my health, my outlook in life, my inner self.
This blog is a creation of my brain cells who keep on bugging me to pour out my creative juices. I used to write for a community newspaper but I am not a good writer. So I tried on with this blogging experience and started with my first running blog on May 17, 2010.
I have Mikaela with me to take snapshots of nature, people, human-interest stories and simply the phases of life. I have Carding to take me to places where I want to go. I have Mister Sam who can let me communicate to the rest of the world but he's gonna be replaced soon... I have Sophie, Sadie and Vicki to be with me during adrenaline rush MilSim games. I have Russell who takes away the stress in me everytime I go home. I have Eli to log me into the information superhighway and the surf the world wide web. And I have Nikia, Phalangging, Spock and KAI who can endure with me during practice runs and will run with me in my future races.
I have my family.
So, let's RUN and have FUN! And let's live life to the fullest.
