My last road race was in June.
This was gonna take some getting used to again after being spoiled on the trails.
I signed up for the Pinoy Fitness Kasama (Companion) Run with no companion whatsoever. Never even breached my thoughts. In my mind, 16k was the distance to go and that was what happened. The challenge was to run a road race without headphones!
It was raining real hard the night before and runners were all over the Facebook event page checking if the race was gonna be cancelled. Thankfully, the heavens stopped pouring and the streets dried enough for us to safely push through.
Running photos were uploaded almost immediately following the race! I found me easily cause I was wearing my Hufflepuff shirt (as always for a road race!) I spotted someone wearing the equivalent Slytherin shirt! If only the Gryffindor and Ravenclaw runners were there too…
Some Fitbit data!
Heart rate data:
Calorie data: ALWAYS VERY IMPORTANT LOL
While I didn’t have a running companion, I did bump into Jean from last week’s GRiT Trail Run and met Chris, her friend! They’ll both be running 21k at Run With Me in September while I tackle an easy 10k before the Spartan Sprint.
This run’s hardware is really niceeeee! Personally engraved because I got early bird registration and with a bottle opener! Practical AND beautiful! A wonderful combo :]
Also at this run were Raymond Gutierrez aka FITSPIRATION and Jaymie Pizarro aka The Bull Runner! I started the year not knowing anyone in the running community but I think I’m getting the hang of meeting new people and making friends. Thankfully, there are people who are very approachable and easy to talk to :]
