Nice petiks run for me. It's been awhile since I joined a 21k run. It's been what, uhm... more than a month going two, since the last time. And I'm glad to be back on running. Ang sarap kaya mag-marathon. Parang you're losing half of your weight after running. Sobrang gaan sa feeling. Even though stressed out ang katawan at ang legs, still masarap pa rin sa pakiramdam. And the self-fulfillment after finishing a run, is just so great. It's like winning a lottery, 5 times! Kaso, it's not a cash prize. GROCERIES!!! Haha. Yeah. Lalo na pag ang sponsors ng run puro nasa food industry like Century Tuna, etc. At walang kasawa-sawang SAMPLE MEDICINES!!! At dyan nangunguna ang Unilab. But the best prize that I'm really dying for is the 21K FINISHER SHIRT and THE MEDAL!!! Up to my ears ang tuwa ko pag meron un. Wala ng sakit sakit sa paa. Yan na ang Alaxan ko!
The poster of Yamaha Run. May raffle prize na motor, sayang didn't win.
(L-R): Paolo, Tito Dong, Cholo, Me, Ian
Tito Dong and Paolo Talplacido run 5K, and Cholo, Ian and me run 21K. At start, kaming dalawa lang ni Ian ang magkasama, then maybe after some time, nakita namin si Kuya Cholo. We run in pace lang, 'coz mahirap tumakbo in sprint all the way pag long distances. Not enough training and kulang pa sa experience. Haha. We're not build to win and compete to those Kenyans who run like shit, we're built lang to finished and have a good PR. Maybe next time, competition between Kenyans and us na. Haha. In our dream!
Cholo, Ian and I, were planning to build a team. Haha pacing team lang. It's good to have running buddies during long runs. Kaya if you're interested and you want to join and run with us, just tell me. I'm telling you, IT'S REALLY FUN!
Me, after the 21K run. The medal was delayed daw kaya wala pa akong suot na medal. Too bad! Pero they promised that they'll delivered it to us, sana totoo lang. Kundi demandahan to. Di pwedeng wala akong medal.
I finished the 21K run in 2 hours, 26 minutes and 20 seconds. Not a good PR for me, pero it's good na rin having not enough training and practice. Tsaka I really enjoyed the run kasi sobrang chill lang talaga namin pero diba oh, halos 2 and a half hours lang namin kinuha. Nice na rin un.
One more thing, WALA AKONG PICTURE while running. Actually meron, pero di ko mahanap kung nasan! If ever may alam, here's my bib no, 1253, pakihanap naman oh. Sana kasi photovendo na lang ang partner ulit ng RunRio eh. Galante sa pictures un eh. Tsk. Tsk.
'Til the next run!!! :-bd
