Good times @ Run United 1

Runrio & Unilab are indeed the tandem to beat in race events these days. They never fail to deliver and always give us the best running experience of our lives.

I ran 10K yesterday and I must say, it’s one of my best runs ever, in terms of my performance & the race event itself. All that I need, all I’m expecting were there. Though I failed to finish a sub60, I am so happy and proud of my time: 1.06.01, really not bad at all for a 80kg man like me. And my first 10K was 1.25, I’ve improved a lot. Sub60 is soooo near, I can feel it. 🙂

What I like about the race:

  • Real time Results – Wow! Just wow! With bazusports update, I was able to received a text message with the time I crossed the finish line & my finish time & pace. There was also an update on my facebook & twitter accounts. How cool is that. I hope all race will be like this.
  • Kilometer Markers – I know some of you don’t care about this that much but I do care. I don’t have those techy gadgets so I rely on this markers to know if I’m on my right pace, if I have to adjust my speed to make habol or to slow down and rest, things like that. I love races with markers every kilometer.
  • Hydration – As always, Overflowing.
  • Lootbags & Activities – I usually go home immediately after the race on the other running events but with Unilab, I find some time to look around, to check on what’s going.
  • Runrio Theme Song “Running for Love” – I love the song. It’s very encouraging to have a strong finish. It was nice to sing it while crossing the finish line. I had goosebumps actually. Maybe if I’m running 21K or 42K with that song, I’m gonna cry on the finishline. Haha. The song was just so nice to hear, I don’t know, I just liked it. It’s my current LSS.

Next month,  marks my RUNNIVERSARY. I hope I can make a sub60 finish with my 10K on or before that day. And I’m also looking for a good race to celebrate it. If  I succeed, I’ll start training for my first half marathon.

That’s all folks! Happy Running!

    congrats bro! you’re improving! (ako naman, i’m rusting…)

    anyway, good points! ang bad thing lang sa event, sa BGC siya ginawa… nakakasawa na ang BGC… ang daming paliko-liko… mas gusto ko talaga kung sa MOA ginanap yun.
