My function for the Condura Skyway Marathon 2013 event was not only to run the 42.195 km event but to cheer all then runners on the route.
I was not gunning a PR (but if I did I would be the happiest person in the world)
I also made sure that The “SAFETY BUDDY” was strictly implemented.
I will check how the runners are doing and made sure that the Lifeline staff on the route where awake and alert … and yes the Lifeline group did an excellent job.
I was in wave “B” and in spite of my years of running I still get nervous when I race.
I was feeling good in my run I was cheering runners, giving them high five and encouraging everyone to not give up and make their dreams come true.
I check my time / pace around the 25th km and I was on target finish time ….
But somewhere in the 30 km mark I got sick.
I was vomiting with matching wrenching tummy and back spasms. I also wanted to make no.”2”
I had to stop several times to VOMIT in fact the Lifeline people even approached me and asked me if I was doing ok. I said, “Yes resting Lang “.
I couldn’t figure out what went wrong with my Body system why it was shutting down but I think it was the combination (banana, water, juice, gel and chilly windy weather) my body couldn’t handle it, I am payatot kasi.
What was FUNNY is if it was somebody needed the “SAFETY BUDDY’ System it’s me.
I struggled till I reach the finish line a finish and finish at a respectable time of 4 hours and 27 mins.
Thank you God.
