New Balance RUN ON Race


Ricky and I were out of Running for quite a while now. We already missed out running. I persuaded him to join on a running event to start over. Nowadays, its very challenging for us to be consistent in training but at least we’re trying to adjust every now and then through doing short run and some workouts. We decided to join New Balance RUN ON Race for a comeback this year. It happened on May 28, 2017 in U.P. Diliman Grounds.

The race started at 3pm in which I don’t think a good start for us. The heat of the sun was very painful on our skin and it put so much effort while running compared to running in the morning. It was really difficult to breathe as well.

Since, this race was a 5-kilometer run, it took me 41 minutes with so much walking to finish the race. I used to get this distance in 35 minutes with training. Participants had the privileges to take the additional 1km as a challenge of their speed. To those who took it got their finisher token provided that they were included in the first 100 finishers. The first 500 finishers would get finishers medal. I was not really confident if I could make it to be part of 500 finishers due to so much exhaustion and walking.

Fortunately, I made it. I got my finisher’s medal. Thank God. I’m overwhelmed on how I started and the outcome of it.

Congratulations to all finishers and its good to see some running friends that we met on the road.
