My bags are packed, well, they’re overpacked with double of everything for running, more than enough Sports Beans and Power Gels to carry me through an ultramarathon, and our New Balance Power Race bibs with extra sets of safety pins. Talk about being sigurista.
Despite this, I’m seriously anxious about running 25km even if it’ll just be a training run for me. I don’t feel prepared since the farthest I’ve ever run is 20km just a few weeks ago. It helps to know that I’ll be running with my usual training group—lead pacer JunC, Clark expert Dindo and ever the entertainer Jay—at our agreed upon pace of 6 min/km. Even more comforting to learn a few nights ago that Coach Rio will be running at the same controlled pace too. So, I figured we just have to focus on his crazy hair, which can be considered a celebrity on its own, and that should lead us straight to the finish line. Sounds like a good plan, right? Wish us luck.
See you at Clark!
