QCIM3 on December 04, 2011 - Race Day Pics

December 04, 2011 at QCIM3 - I conquered my FIRST FULL MARATHON with official finish time of 5:01:15.

I was aiming for a sub 5Hour finish for my first FM but I was short of more than a minute. I am still happy of my results, the route was very challenging with lots of elevation especially at the La Mesa Park and UP Diliman campus and not to exclude the ever famous "killer highway" Commonwealth Avenue with a deceiving elevation.

Plus the unending rain which started at around 7:30 AM, that time I was already at around Ever Gotesco Commonwealth.

This is my photo documentary of my first Full Marathon at the Quezon City International Marathon. For more pics, please visit my Facebook page or click HERE.

It was a memorable first full marathon, nice route elevations, great views of the La Mesa Park and UP Diliman and a cool rainy weather.

See you on the road guys!
