I didn't have a second thought when I registered for this race due to the affordable fee of Php 400! It's hard to find 10km races these days that are below Php 500! Once I made sure that our schedule is clear, I registered for myself and for Per.
I also registered for Kerwin and Alvin. This will be the second 10km race wherein all four of us will be participating again but difference from the first race (Robinson's Buddy Run) is that this will be an individual race.
We didn't make it in time for the gun start of 5:30AM and felt pressured to try to catch up with 10km runners. I had to make a U turn back to Per and tell her not to go out fast. Eventually, we will catch up with them (which we all did!).
The route took us to Kalayaan Bridge and along Buendia Avenue for the U turn back. Pretty simple route, which I like. There were water stations nearly every kilometers and lots of volunteer photographers.
|Per happy at conquering 5km!|
I counted down the distance, hoping that one of the water stations offered something else other than just water. But that was not to be. I blamed no one but myself. I was hungry too and did my best to finish the race as quickly as possible so I can sit down and rest.
|defeatist look? hehe|
I finished the race at 1:06++. Not one of my best time but still good enough for me.
Alvin was already waiting for me. A few minutes later, Kerwin crossed finish line, then Per.
All in all, everyone was happy. Probably me the most because it was time for breakfast!
|dessert after breakfast! haha|
Thank You Lord!
