Run Rizal, September 18, 2011- Race Day Pics

This morning, September 18, 2011, the Jose Rizal 150th Birthday Commemorative Run or Run Rizal was held at the Rizal Park, Manila.

Though not feeling well due to common colds and sore throat, I decided to run my third 16K. This was not my first time to run despite of not being 100% on good condition, the first time was last year during the Run for Pasig River (October 10, 2010) and last May 22, 2011 at the Greentennial Half Marathon.

At the start of the race, I was perked up and ready to rumble. I felt good during the first 5 kilometers, but then suddenly I got an upset stomach and I carried that all the way back to the 2 kilometers.

Taken while walking with upset stomach, ouch
My unofficial time for 16K this time is 1:46, almost the same with my time at the Runfest last July 2011 in a much harder route at Mc Kinley Hill.

With Ma'am Ayen at the Finish Line
I would like to welcome back Ma'am Ayen, her last race was last October 2010 at the Run for Pasig River. Ma'am Ayen and yours truly had our first run during the Globe Run for Home last March 2010 when running was not yet a fever here in Manila.

With Sam at the Rizal Monument
Also welcome back to running Sam! His last run was at the Greentennial Half Marathon last May 22, 2011 at the Aseana City, Diosdado Macapagal Avenue. Keep it up!

At last, I was able to grab one Pinoy Fitness tech shirt during the Run Rizal this morning. Love it!
