This morning, i got stuck in the garage for a good 30 minutes waiting for the rain to stop before i could go out for my daily run. And when it did, i briefly considered skipping this run as it was already bright and kinda late (it’s amazing how much contradiction can go into your mind when confronted with such situations) but having waited for so long, already dressed-up and ready to go, i didn’t want to have any more excuses to miss this day’s work-out.
So i planned just to do a 6km tempo run. Barely had i ran 3kms when the inevitable happened. It rained and it poured—as if it was punishing me for daring to venture out notwithstanding the warnings of more rains coming. Despite it, i pushed forward and ran evenly on tempo pace. I was soaked wet but no matter. Rain? You can always tough this one out, right?
I officially signed-up for the Pocari Sweat 10k Run on July 17. The race starts at Frontera Verde, a wide spanking shopping area located at the vicinity of Tiendesitas, Pasig. The 10k route snakes through Julia Vargas, Lanuza, Meralco Avenue, Hillcrest Drive to the dreaded St. Martin Road where a gigantic hill awaits the runners!
Thanks to Pep squad events and the great guy (Ivy?) in charge for registration at the Reebok branch in Trinoma for facilitating my entry. The race packet comes with a very nice singlet which i expect runners would want to wear on race day.
