It’s confirmed. The Philippine Marathon—initially cancelled—will be pushing through on February 22, 2009 thanks to the support of the ABS-CBN Foundation.
With that news confirmed by race organizer Gay Maddela and announced by Patrick C. via SMS yesterday, there were a lot of runners sporting wide grins and walking on cloud nine rejoicing over the fact that all the past months’ training had not gone for naught; there’s a confirmed marathon for February! Woohoo!
As for Clark Marathon, I shall wait for news of this race, which is also scheduled for February 2009, and post it here once I find out. (I separated List of Races 2008 and List of Races 2009 already. See sidebar on the right.)
For now, I will keep myself busy happily training for my first full marathon in February 2009—whatever it may be.
