We’re still in a frenzy after sweeping 1st place in all events at yesterday’s Adidas Adination of Runners (aNR) 2nd 5th Sunday Run at Eastwood City. And the whole aNR Heartbreakers Team are still basking on the dramatic race finish wherein our last male relay runner, Blackjack boldly nipped the lead runner a few meters from the finish for a grand slam win!
The Team Relay is probably the most exciting and competitive event and after winning first place finishes in the male and female individual 5k race and bagging 1st in the Women’s relay a few minutes after, we were now set to win the last event, the Male 5k relay.
It wasn’t easy at the outset when Anthony, our first runner came only in 3rd or about 15 seconds behind the leading runner from the BHS group. The same order of runners followed with our 2nd, 3rd and 4th runners now tailing the BHS group by about 30 seconds.
However, Team Heartbreakers was not to be denied as anchor leg Blackjack staged a courageous sprint surging past the BHS runner at the finish winning by a mere second or two.
This is our second over-all championship after winning all categories in last January’s inaugural aNR 5th Sunday run at Resorts World. It was a great day with another set of trophies (and cash) for our team.
