Never did I imagine that I would be joining the Pinoy Fitness 10k Challenge. I was just only dreaming of this for I am not confident enough if I could make 10k in an hour. I just supported and watched my friends who joined this event before. On this event, finally I made a decision to participate and accepted the challenge. I registered on the event with the registration details as mentioned below.
Race maps, medal, shirt and singlet as shown below.
At the starting line, I was praying so hard hoping that I could make it in one hour so that I could have a medal. I was hoping also not to incur injuries on this race.
I was having a mixed emotions that very moment. I was feeling nervous, happy and excited. I believed that everyone was feeling the same way too.
During the race, you could feel the eagernes, adrenalin and competition within ourselves. Everybody was aiming for that medal. I treated the medal as a diamond.
We met some friends and known coaches along the race. By the way, we also met Sir Jeff (the founder) of Pinoy Fitness after the race.
I always checked on my watch if I still have a time. I was hopeless when I heard someone said that it was passed an hour already. Surprisingly, when we turned left going to the finish line, almost near, I somehow visibly saw the time. It was few seconds already before the 60th minute. I immediately made myself do the sprint. Finally, I made it!!!!!!
I was so happy and proud of myself. The feeling was incredible.
The experience was perfect and this would be definitely worth sharing. Having this medal was really a very special birthday gift for myself. (^__^)
Congratulations to all finishers and to those who exceeded themselves, like me, i mean us with my love (Rick). \m/
