No pressure on the finish time. No freaking out on the long distance or on the cut off time. Just good plain old fun.
RACE # 1
REACH FUN RUN 5KM
For registration fee of Php 300, you will have to do the following:
1. Run 2.5km from the Starting line to the REACH CHALLENGE ZONE
2. Eat 4 Krispy Kreme Original Glazed Doughnuts
3. Run 2.5km from the REACH CHALLENGE ZONE to the finish line.
Limited to 300 runners only. This event starts at 7:00AM on July 11th at Fort Bonifacio. Registration will be done on-site only.
Doughnuts and running??? A contradiction definitely. But USA have their own Krispy Kreme event so it is nice that they have this in the Philippines too. And for those who don't think they can finish all 4 doughnuts, no need to worry, you don't have to. Not unless you are looking to get 1st or 2nd placer in this run.
This shall serve as my breakfast for that day.
Goal for this race: To have a good time. How's that for a goal! Hahaha!
RACE # 2
Robinson's FIT & FUN WELLNESS BUDDY RUN 10km
Per and I have done some couple races in the past months. This usually happens if I want her to run a longer distance and she has some doubts on whether she can do it. I would then promise to run with her side by side so I can be there if she needs anything. We did this at RUNew 15km and again at Market Market 16km.
But for a 10km? Haven't really done this for a while now. It's because Per is quite comfortable with that race so no need for me to be there. But with this Buddy race, it's back to a couple race for us.
Per will be my buddy and we will have the same bib number. How awesome is this! We also need to wear the official Singlets on race day. Good thing it fits me!
Race will start at 6:00AM at the back of NBC Tent in Fort Bonifacio. Fee is Php 750 for two runners (2 singlets and 2 bib numbers).
Goal: Get New Couple 10k PR. Our last was at Milo's Finals last December '08 at time of 1:16:21.
See you at the road race!
