Just two more days till Pasig. As the say in the local vernacular, dalawang tulog na lang! It will be a big day for most Filipino runners, especially those who are running the full 42.195 km.
I will not join the race due to the injury. Initially, I was planning to support Annie, my running buddy who I trained with months ago for this marathon, but I decided otherwise for fear that seeing this super strong athlete suffer in the last 10km might cause me to abandon any future marathon dreams. So, as I’ve told Annie, I will be there in spirit for her and all you runners out there.
Note: I posted this on the 22nd and was surprised to find it back in my unpublished drafts. Hmmph…It was bad enough that I couldn’t join the race and now my blog is playing tricks on me!
The Pasig Marathon is over and Annie finished strong with an unofficial time of 4:07! Patrick and Taki, how did you do? Read about Bald Runner’s Pasig experience here.
