Run With Pringles 2008

May 18, 2008

Here are some of my pictures for the Run with Pringles 3 Miles 2008. I was able to finish within 23 minutes (however unofficial records from eXtribe states I arrived by 24.09.3 ranking 119th) which could have been faster at around 19 minutes if only I studied the darned map and made a better assessment on how to attack.

At any rate, my workout music helped a lot. My sister was there to chaperon (lol) when in fact I have been running helpless at The Fort for months now. Well, a li’l assistance never hurts. Too bad she watched the Telus race and not Pringles’. Hahaha!

As for the race, it was darned fun. Problem is I may have overrehearsed which made me think the race would be all around The Fort and not just NBC->Army->NBC all within 23 minutes max. Sigh, could’ve been better, but heck, it was a grand debut for a virgin first-timer. Yep, this is my first actual fun-run.

Moreover, I do believe my size and built wasn’t meant for these things. I felt so f*cking fat with all those skinny people around in short shorts. In fact, if it were not for all those “normal” people I saw arriving a few minutes after I did, I would have called it quits as quickly as that. Haha. Well, maybe not. But it wasn’t good for my ego to see them with their unnatural tan, which, by the way, I have been trying to achieve here and here.

Next stop, Takbo Para Sa Puso at UP Campus this May 25 @ 6 AM. This time, I aim to really really really win something.

And oh, bleep, bleep, bleep! Cat’s got my tongue though. Sigh. Hahaha! Winx!

    Hi King!

    I was there — it was also my first run — but I didn’t do quite as good as you. I did mine in 33 minutes. Congratulations on a great run — you’re more skinny, then, than me — that means I’m more normal than you. I started this running thing because of my friends, who are a little more advance than me — and because I have to run in the La Salle Cares Fun Run in July 13 — have to because I’m an officer in the De La Salle Alumni Association. So, I started this to make sure I don’t look bad at the event. But, I’ve been working out at Fitness First in ABS-CBN since the start of the year to get myself back in shape — didn’t work out for over 1 1/2 years and I felt really sluggish last December — that scared me.

    Unfortunately, I won’t be able to join the UP Run on May 25. I have a golf tournament on May 24 and an overnight outing with my high school buddies. Good luck on your 2nd run on Sunday.

    Hope to eventually meet up with you and possibly other runners in the future.

    i wonder if there’s a physiological explanation why pin thin people could endure such a gruelling kilometric run? it’s not only in fun run like this, but in professional sports as well. look who usually dominates the marathon race in olympics.
