I’m home to run: Run4Change ’12
Last race for the year of 2011.
My yearly going hometo my country as well.
4 days after my arrival, 4 days after a run in Singapore.
Mon of Happy Feet, no fail, registered me. I was there early. It was a drizzly morning. Not sure, not much show up. Maybe because of the Corregidor Half Marathon? No idea.
A “hilly” route. That reason why it is held in McKinnley hills. the location speaks for itself. As usual I did not know how I’d go with the run after a travel, jet lag, humidity, I will just have to run and try to enjoy it.
Got a big Medal and a loot bag full of goodies! run4Change is a charity supporting youth less fortunate in schools.
It was better than I can remember from the last year I’vedone it, NOT – from the second half. I was on position 3 for ladies the first 2 KMs, and was not sure after that If there was someone in front of me. I just kept on Running and running and mentally spoke myself into not walking, even how slow I would go today, no walking!! Guess what?? Surprisingly, I took the 1st female overall, not that quick – not much elites around except for “Bhabes” who came seconds after me, who complained about not enough sleep and Miss Calma who came third. How did I beat this ladies? I do not know, I was just following them years ago!! – Call that Runner’s high. They pushed me in some way!
