|Cebu International Marathon |
|Condura Skyway Marathon|
After a month. Condura Skyway Marathon comes very fast. Many of my runner friends were already registered. A week before the race, I saw the post of Aileen Piacos of Hungout Buddies selling her 42K racekit for a chep price of Php900. At first, I was very hesitant to join Condura Marathon because of its high registration fee.
During the race, I paced with Gary Chua is a marathon first timer. We did a 10:1 Galloway
at first few kilometers and then change our running plan. We decided to run during downhill and just
walk during the uphills. I really appreciate the cold weather during the race because of what I had experience in cebu. The event is well organized like the previous Condura races. The route is awesome, Its feels like I am Son Gokou running in the snake road in Dragon Ball Z.
Upon reaching the 21K turn around point, we are still doing good. Not until, Km32 when Gary Chua encounters knee pain. We walked for about 4Km until we reached Ayala area. It was in Km40 when I asked him if we could sprint the remaining kilometer but he said that he cannot manage to run anymore. He told me to go ahead, so I ran as fast I can. It was a strong finish for me, I sprinted the last 100 meter stretch to the finish line. I finished at 6:18:00, 56 minutes faster than my cebu marathon.
After I got my medal, I joined the Team CB in the finish line. We wait for other team mates to finish the race and have our lunch at Chowking. That day I decided to join the team officially and said
"Team CB ako".

It is impossible for me to finish the three marathons without the encouragement, advices, and support of my running groups.
