Hello From Hong Kong!

Saturday, 27 February 2010  |  Bullish Insights

I was so busy chasing after work deadlines and packing for the entire family that I failed to bid you goodbye last night. I am now in Hong Kong thanks to the wonderful people of Planet Sports, especially Anton Gonzales and Bing Buenaventura, who sponsored my trip and registration for the Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon tomorrow.

I wish I could sit down and chat with you more, but, after a long day at Disneyland with the kids…

– Forget rest for now. Disneyland beckoned. Tomorrow we attack Ocean Park (after the marathon, that is!) –

Plus the fun-filled New Balance Regional Running Event held this evening…

– with Team Fatbird of Singapore and Jinoe of takbo.ph –

…I am pooped.  It’s a terrible way to spend the eve of my marathon, but, at least, I have a good excuse already if I bonk…heehee.  Don’t worry, I promise to share all the details after the marathon.

Please say a prayer for me tonight. That I don’t get fished out of the marathon tomorrow with a net and thrown into a bus if I don’t make the cut off at each point. That my ITB doesn’t get cranky the way it did at Km40 in Condura. That I don’t die of thirst as I didn’t bring my hydration belt only to find out that hydration stations are only at every 5km (panic I tell you!) And, last but not the least, that I stop worrying aready, get some sleep despite the anxiety, and enjoy my 4th marathon experience!

Good night, Manila!

– Gear is all set. But is the body ready? –
