October runs

From a very lackluster September run wherein I joined one fun run only, October looks to be a busy month for me. My schedule will be as follows:

October 5 - Takbo Breast Friend 10k. This will be at Ultra, Pasig and I would expect this to still be the most difficult for me given the pollution of the cars here and very uphill route. Hopefully, the organizers can do a full road closure while the race is ongoing. Registration Fee P200. This would be a good training for me in preparation of the following weekend race:

October 11- Adidas 21k. Sadly it won't be this race as missing out on it. Was looking forward to this back in September but they moved it to this date. A lot of my friends will be joining this though and singlet looks really nice. All runners will also get 10% discount to Adidas products via coupon attached to race bib. Registration already available at SM Megamall and Podium's Adidas Stores.

October 12 - Kota Kinabalu 21k. My Longest race and in a foreign land (but one I am comfortable as been there three times already). Will look forward to lying in the swimming pool of hotel resort right after the race to relax my body. Looking at target of 2 hours and 30 minutes or less for this race. Hopefully, I am fit enough from the Ultra Race to be able to finish this at a good time.

October 19 - Botak Paabilisan 10k. Registered for this recently and more of a recovery run than that of a P.R. run. Registration Fee P250. More on this later.

So there you go. 3 runs, 3 different dates, 3 different places. All in the same month.

hi Jinoe, its always better to have a lot of races to choose from than to have no races to choose from, don't you think?

hi Jeanne, Go Go Go! Still haven't done an Adidas run in my life so hoping for one next year! Malas talaga...
