My running passion is really contributed by the Adidas King of the Road Running Expo 2009. To be more precise, it is because of the PhP495 singlet, he he. So, if you would ask why I am running, or why did I got the interest at running, you now know the answer -- It is because of the SINGLET, ha ha.
My Running Diary:
- Adidas King of the Road 2009 - October 25, 2009
- A Run for the Pasig River - November 8, 2009
- Time is Running, The 2009 Timex Run - November 15, 2009
For my third run, I was still disappointed with the scarcity of the available buses from Bocaue Exit Tollgate. I would spend around 15-20 minutes before I could finally ride in a bus. Good thing, it is not that heavy a traffic at EDSA at 4AM as compared to the rush hour of 8AM. So, I still manage to get to the meeting place on time.
I am relieved that we arrived with an easy pace for we were not late. We're just in time for the 5K race. As always, I keep my pace equal with my girl, for I have been her official photographer in every running even that she has. But I don't care really. I am enjoying every event.
Along the course of the race, we happen to see the Kenyan leading the event, with the videomen following him. My girl waved at the camera, while I tried to follow the Kenyan if I can run as fast as he could. Well, obviously, I can't; he's just too fast for me.
We were able to cross the finish line at 39 minutes, 35 seconds. But our Race Result showed 41 minutes, 23 seconds; simply because my girl failed to start her Timex watch as we cross the Start line, he he.
It was another fulfilling activity that I had with my girl. And the registration fee of PhP600 is fair enough for we've got lots of freebies.
See you on our next run: The Men's Health Urbanathlon and Festival 2009 on November 22, 2009.
