Who’s Going to Subic?

Saturday, 19 January 2008  |  Race Announcements

To all those joining the Subic Marathon this weekend, I bid you farewell.  May the spirit of the running gods be with and carry you on his wings to make you run, nay soar, like an eagle in flight.  I shant be with you but I shall keep you in my prayers.  Let you not stumble on a rock, fall prey to faster runners, or worse suffer in pain from an evil injury.

So much drama.  I was just carried away by the excitement of this all even if I can’t make it to Subic.  All I wanted to say was GOOD LUCK!  Looking forward to hearing stories from you all.

Subic Marathon 2008

Thursday, 13 September 2007  |  Race Reports

Boys and girls, online registration for Subic Marathon 2008 is now open!

According to its website, the Subic Marathon “raises the bar in terms of organizing marathon events in the country and in the ASEAN region.” Aside from plans of obtaining accreditation from the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF), it is also associated with The Runners Confederation of the Philippines, Inc. (Run-CPI) and Outbound Asia, Inc. (OAI). The Subic Marathon will hand out the biggest top prize of US$ 5000 in any marathon in the region and will offer up to P 1 million in total prizes. Whoaaa, honestly, I’d just be happy running in scenic Subic wearing a scintillating new singlet!

Phew, just visiting their site is getting me all excited. I feel like a 2-year-old who ate too many marshmallows before bedtime. Yeah, it’s time to hit the sack right now but I cannot for the life of me get my mind to stop thinking about kilometers. How long shall I run in Subic? Perhaps I’ll count kilometers—instead of sheep—tonight. 5k…10k…21k…42k. Hmmm…what shall I sign up for?
