I almost didn't make it as it had a gun start of 6am at Filinvest and I woke up at 5:20am!
Now that was a wake up call! In 10 minutes I was out of the house and driving on the road to Alabang. The horrible traffic in Sucat area didn't help me in this situation.
Luckily, I found the race start and secured myself a nice parking slot right when the race had started. But no worries, I could still catch up with them. And pretty soon I was running with then.
As race was at Filinvest, it was sort of a new route for me and I enjoyed doing the 10km as the last race for the year.
I was slow at first but by the second half, I got my second wind and was able to go faster.
Goals for this race kept improving as well- from 6:30 average pace ( just to finish), to 6:21 (which was my pace in last week's race) to 6:19 ( which was my 10k PR for this year. As more disance gets covered, the pace went down as well.
I kept changing the goal and had strength to keep going. Final two turns before I crossed the finish line.
God is truly awesome!! Thank You for a wonderful year -ender run. This wasn't just a recovery run but it was also a redemption run!
