What can I say. IT WAS A GRUELING WEEK...and there is nothing like a good race to get the juices flowing and the bugs out of my head. Luckily, I had signed up for the Candy Rush 16 km race over a month ago. Problem was, I wasn't exactly in the mood to drive all the way to the race venue and park..... so, I decided to just run to the race venue instead .....at the Quirino Grandstand. Problem solved.
When I got to the venue, the 16 km event had already started but I just really wanted to race even if I had to run on my own. So I simply took it easy and tried to have some fun. I saw some running friends on the road and exchanged high 5’s. I also greeted Berwin Meiley, the organizer of the race, as he was riding on his motorcycle checking on the runners. I was actually having a good time up until the Finish Line when I realized that I had not turned on my Race Watch!!
So, I was late for the race ( tsk tsk ) and forgot to turn on my race watch ( duh! ). Not exactly what you'd expect from a supposedly " seasoned " runner. But I must admit that the change of atmosphere really did me good specially when I got to race at Roxas Boulevard - one of my favorite running places. Just what I needed to get my head screwed on properly again.
After the race, I got my race medal, made my gracious exit and continued my run back home.....to Makati.
All in all, it was a GOOD DAY, a GOOD RACE and got some GOOD "ME" TIME....which I so badly needed. Finally got my "fix" and the bugs out of my head. All it took was a GOOD RUN.
Thank you God.
Total Distance ran today 22.35 km
