McKinley Hills, Taguig
Target time: Sub60
PR for me…never thought that Rotarun will be a good race after my irregular training. i wasn’t able to follow my training routine for SIM due to high demand of my busy sched, work as always…i decided to stay in the office overnight…1st more accessible than coming all the way from antipolo, 2nd have my human alarm clock, my colleague on duty and 3rd i can easily check new updates in my FB, unlimited internet time…
arrived at the venue around 05:30h. ..saw eire and bryan near the stage waiting for others…after i checked-in my baggage, i joined marga and group, chatted with them while waiting for the gun start for 10k and 15k respectively…
rotarun route was new to me…although i tried this route during urbanite, starting with uphill is different...you need to consume your energy wisely for you to maintain your target pace…happy that I did what is planned and I find it effective, learned it from carly, ang babaeng bakal…to sum it up, I maintained my 6min target pace and reached the finishline in 58.41mins (unofficial), sub60 yuhoo!...winning the seattle’s best coffee gc and discount card in the raffle was a plus….award na itong maituturing. Afterward, i invited hypermarvs which happened to be my kapit-bayan to join the group in post-run carbo loading at mcdo…

I, once again the running hermit, running alone along the long wide road of Daang-Hari returning to where we started. After 3Km run, the sun began to show up. No more rain, no more drizzles. I felt exhausted and drained. I still managed to run in a very very slow pace, conserving my energy for few more distance. Although I still have water to replenish my dehydrated body, my body can’t take it anymore. When I reached Commerce Ave., I decided to walk, had a minute break under the acasia tree, prayed for a while as I felt helpless and then continued my walk until I reached Mcdo ATC.
I was fulfilled, finishing the LSD alone with my shaken legs. I rewarded myself with a Coke Float while waiting for others to arrive. So far, this was my longest run recorded. I am looking forward to join more LSD with T.ph. It was indeed a great experience.
