I attempted my first 16k run yesterday! It was a bit daunting because I actually had a 16k run (TV5 Superhero Run) scheduled 2 weeks earlier. And I didn’t wake up for it. Oops.
The race proceeds go to the Cavalry Christian Life School in Tuding, Itogon, Benguet Province hence running with purpose. From what I heard earlier, this is the first time Pilipinas Run was held in Manila. Awesome!
Some Fitbit data!
If you notice, the route I ran was 14.68k instead of 16k because our route was cut short for a government event 😬
Soooo the real reason I moved up to 16k from 10k was because the medal looked better. That was about the only reason! Shallow, I know but hah, I finished the race anyway!
After almost 2 hours, I ended my race sweaty and tired but feeling strong and fulfilled. March race, in the books!
