A lot of runners are getting giddy over this: The 1st ever Men’s Health Urbanathlon in the Philippines on November 18, Sunday at Bonifacio Global City.
I’ve browsed through the website and, in all honesty, I know I can run the 10km comfortably but it’s The Wall that gets me. I detest climbing and climbing loathes me back. Let’s leave it at that.
So, as much as I would like to partake of the festivities on that day, I will beg off for my own pride (I can’t bear the thought of seeing all other participants pass me by as I scramble half-way up and slide down that wall a hundred times over.)
For those who are planning to join, you may be interested in joining Fitness First’s clinic on how to effectively prepare for Urbanathlon. This will be held on:
Nov 10 (First session was today, Nov. 3)
Fort Bonifacio Branch
Selected Fitness First Instructors will give a 45-minute lecture/clinic for the first 40 people to confirm.
Those interested may email or text Edmund Mangaser (Elite Multi Sport Resources) at 0910 2135073.
