It is a great ability to be able to conceal one’s ability.
I have really no plans of joining race when a friend told me that she has a race kit that she can give for free. Without hesitation, I told her that I’m free on that date and joining the race would already be a good idea.
Clueless on the whole event, I arrived in the site an hour early. I noticed that there were not a lot of people were present, yet I saw familiar faces like the monstrous Junrox, Nuttybunny, Ross, Elkyoshi, Jazzrunner, Atom and Irene another newbie from Adination having her 15k debut.
During the race, I tried pushing myself despite that it was my next run after my PAU 50 K. I thought that if I felt anything silly, then I should just stop and call it a day. I hit 27 min in my 1st 5K but I was disappointed because I felt heavy and having a hard time. I’m panting like it will be over soon. 30 min… My next 5k; the velocity already cried off but heck! I don’t care anymore… It was already a run-walk strategy and more chance to see other takbo.ph peeps better.
1:28… It was almost over; however, when I saw my friends cheering for me before the finish line, I dashed as much as I can towards end giving me a new PR of 1:29.
Delighted after the race because comparing it to my first 15K race last Mizuno Infinity Run, I improved by as much as 20min. My 2nd 15K in Globe Run for Home was a disaster too because it was my recovery run after BDM.
Overall I noticed that the race is highly organized; I am not sure why the race turned out to be unpopulated. Oh well, congratulations to the Organizers!
