2nd Quezon City International Marathon (quick post)

(official time updated)

Also known as the QCIM 2, this is event has become one of the running events of the year that a runner shouldn’t miss. Though I really consider joining the Nike Run, a Runrio event on the same day only in BGC, I realized that it is much better to support a local government event than an advertising gimmickry hidden in a cause oriented purposes. But I don’t mind joining such as long as there are no conflicts and I would get my money’s worth. And since I’m not really a “runner” in its strictest sense, I always hope for a singlet in every running event I will join. But that’s just for my souvenir.

So how was the second edition of QCIM? It was a great day actually and the route is so much better than the many turns and crossings of BGC. It was a great time to set a personal record, which I did! Yay! But the cost for making one is an aching knee. I pray to recover ASAP. It’s a Monday tomorrow and I have an important meeting in the afternoon. Pray for me!

Anyway, here’s a run down of the event today.

Discovery Vertical Marathon (quick post)

I’ve been joining fun runs for seven months now and 10k has been the greatest physical challenge for me so far. But that changed last Saturday. Last weekend, I joined the first vertical marathon in the Philippines, an indoor running event done on stairs. It was a new experience and it was indeed challenging. I enjoyed it nonetheless! Pretty fulfilling!
