I used to remember when I complained a lot about not having enough water stations, but after the 2010 edition of Globe’s run for home, I think I should complain about having too many water stations ….. not!
Well, it almost was your typical 21Km run along the Makati – Global City area, except that this race started in Makati and ended in a different street in Makati.
It was fun being able to run under the greenbelt tunnel for the first time – a nice new route which you can’t run on a regular day.
No PR for this 21km run (some say it was 22+km, who cares ? as long as the distance is not less than what we paid for) . I finished it in 2:30 – I am still under the weather but I thought that since I paid for it, I might as well run it, hehehe.
21 km, running, The Fort
“takami no kenbutsu”
The first time I heard that phrase was when I watched the movie “L change the world” – loosely translated, it means “observe from a vantage point”.
This would be my second time to be a part of ultrarunner Isko Lapira’s (aka David Goggins of the Philippines) support crew. The only difference is that I am the only driver for the entire duration since Ian can’t make it due to an office activity.
This year’s chores weren’t as hard as last year’s, since pacers are no longer allowed- giving me enough time to catch some zs in between check points.
But that was just that, for the second year I am still watching things from a distance. I figured that since I was able to survive this January’s 50k test run plus last year’s BDM pacing experience , I might as well join the same 102km event next year (gulp!) – knowing Isko, he will probably move up to the 145Km category … ang tibay talaga!

These past few Sundays, I have been doing long runs – the last of which was joining my CAMANAVA runner friends Isko and Jomar prepare for the recently concluded 2010 edition of BDM 102. They did 52 Km while i did 30Km only.
It was after that when I realized that my Nike Triax would need replacement soon. After all, it is the only pair I have and after around 600 KM ….
So now, let me introduce you to my little friend (drumroll please) … The Asics Gel-Nimbus 10
I really like Asics GEL Technology
I hope that I can break it in before this Sunday’s Globe run for home
