Rainy Night (Rock and Run)

This could be one of the most memorable races I’ve ever joined. Yes, it’s a combination of a Rock band concert and a Run race at night rolled into one. “Hell yeah” right? But here’s more…

Me and RR before the race

Every month, our TRRC (Thomson Reuters Running Club) usually chooses one running event and promotes it to our company. And for this month, its the ‘Rock and Run’. We’re just a total of 60++ TRRC runners who joined this event. This would also be the first time that I’ll run with my old best buddy BBR (Philip) again after 5 weeks of vacation from Belgium.

As we’re about to start.. it rained! Yes, so instead of choosing to set a 10k pr, I’ll just run with Kathy and accompany her in the entire race. We brought 1 umbrella each (I don’t know who’s idea was it. Lol) as we waited for the gunstart. Lots of runners packed the starting area for each category, 3k, 5k and 10k. As the race started, I was running and carrying 2 umbrellas with me. Haha. Anyway, the rain got harder and all I can think about were my shoes getting wet. Some stages along the route still had some bands playing and cheering for the runners. Along the rainy run journey, we passed by Sen. Pia Cayetano running alongside Ani “Ironwoman” De Leon, Jaymie “TheBullrunner” Pizzaro (with her Nike Storm fly jacket) and some runners whom we didn’t expect to run despite the heavy rains. Soon, I found myself loving the scene of running under the rain.

Kathy sets a new 10k pr of 1:17:17(same time with me of course).

  1. Actually, I was first hesitant to go running as I met one runner who opted not run because of the rain. He was telling me that it’s hard to run with a wet shoe, mabigat daw. Pero sabi ko, FFS would be disapointed so I need to continue even if I get sick. hahahahahaha!

    For me, that run was great too! I love running under the rain. I wish, the next run that I’ll be joining will be rained again, LOL….It would be much enjoyed if the bands still get played even if it’s raining…:)

    • Glad that you found interest in running under the rain! hehe! keep it up!

      • ONLY when there is a rain, hehe! Pero gusto ko na talagang gawing habit ‘to.
