Decided to sign up for a marathon as part of my training for my full ironmam in october, with a few more weeks to the world championship (7 weeks) my training was for the big event , did not aim for a personal best but the running community in cdo and bukidnon is just so fun , (nakay gukdon or ikaw gukdon) , with the lead pack ramil and jemarvin all smiles cheering on me in the run course and of course Circle Events organizing the race (water station every 2.5k and marshall every kilometer was just beyond excellent, zero reason not to have a PR . Legs felt heavy after 21k mark this was because i did a long ride two days before the race i was telling myself that time it will hurt just endure the pain but in the 30k mark it got better. This race was quite special because its my first marathon in cdo and i just cant fail. To David that has to forego ( cycling race on the same day) and run the marathon instead , you are now a cyclist/marathoner heheh next stop will be 3:15 for Boston , Carlo who promise to pace with me but did not tell me that he will run with me only for 25meters did an amazing run . To gemymah who was late for 30 mins did a very good 21k and to chinchin , thank you for everthing as always you are my lucky charm .
