1st Podium Finish (Greenovation)

When: November 28, 2010
Distance: 15k

Go Lasalle! I’m not a graduate from Lasalle(I’m proud graduate of UST. LOL). There are around 3 other race events with the same date but we chose this as it was the nearest race event from our place.

This should be a taper run for me as my FM(QCIM) will be in 7days. Race started late and there were just a few 15k runners on the starting line(around less than 100). I was in front of the starting line kasi madami media. Haha! I told myself to keep it easy and not to push myself but as soon as I heard the gunstart, adrenaline strike me and all I know I’m running at below 5 pace(Bryan, hold your horses!). I was on 12th place from the start and worked my butt off until 4th place. Runner ahead of me was no where in site and based from the turn around, there’s no way I can catch up… BUT not until the last 2km. Pushed the pedal to the metal, overtook and moved up one spot at the last stretch and ended up at 3rd place overall.


It really felt so good announcing your name, going to the stage and receiving your podium giveaways. I just hate when the hosts said that “eto na ung mga batak” haha which I told them I’m not.


My time was 1:04:01. Route fell short by a few hundred meters but still felt strong afterwards. Shouldn’t be doing this 7 days before a full marathon but I felt the adrenaline. Yeah!

‘til the next race!
