Afroman and the Hill

2 big races would be my main attractions for this month of November.

Unilab Run (Runrio Leg 3)
November 13, 2011 @ MOA

Last year’s Afroman Leg 3 was a blast and I clocked in at 2:51:50. I was on a full marathon training that time and I run that race just on tempo pace. With lack of training, I might not finish it at sub 3 hours even giving all i’ve got.

And it was. The humidity at MOA grounds gave me a hard time to breathe and as soon as we reach the 22nd km mark, the sun was up and it was too hot. From the stretch of Roxas boulevard and Magsaysay road down to the seaside avenue was a total oven toaster experience for me. Finished it 3:16:45 and way too newbie compared to last year. haha!

I still deserve a breakfast right?

The Afroman distance was only a warm up as few of my teammates dare to run this expected mountainous race. It was my first time to run at Tagaytay and I was thinking that I have finished Baguio run at sub2 and this might just be a replica of it. So I knew it was no biggie.

NOT again! I should’ve prepared for this race. In kilometer order, the race route was composed of Uphill-downhill-rolling hills-mega down hill and MEGA uphill! It was really insane!

This is no camera trick

At km 16-19 where the mega uphill was, I remember sitting down for 1-2mins because I can nnot even sustain to walk(i’m weakling). This happened 3 times. haha! Finished it 2:35:17. It was uncomparable to Baguio run! It was the hardest race i’ve joined but nevertheless the best so far. I felt like I ran a full marathon!
