KKK Funny Run

No, I did not make a mistake in the title.  I'd much rather call it funny than anything else.  I'll explain...

I got to say, in the four fun runs that I've joined so far, yesterday's run stood out somehow. It wasn't an extraordinary run by the way. The reason for it standing out from the rest is that a lot of runners got lost in the routes lol! That's because the race organizers had few marshals deployed in critical locations and there were no signs either.  I was already thinking if I was one of the declared placers, I wouldn't accept the award because there was no certainty that I ran the right distance. But, gauging from my previous runs, I would say I ran more than five kilometers. I did extra turns along the route, and I would have probably ran longer if I had not explained to one of the marshals who was thankfully in her place, that I already ran the route she was pointing out to me.

Gaahhhhh....my throat was already parched because I passed off the only water station I chance upon.  There were too many runners there and if I stop to have a drink, I might not be able to run anymore hehehe.  My legs tend to cramp up when I stop running, so when I am too tired to run, I do very brisk walking to prevent leg cramps.  So, I cannot afford to stop for so long at the water station.  Otherwise, I won't be able to finish the race. 


So anyway, that was annoying in that aspect but I just shrugged it off and we even laughed about it.  What did they expect, I wonder? Tire us all out running around CCP Complex in unending circles? I just took it as Day 1 of practice for the Milo Marathon finals next month, on December 9 to be exact.  Hey, if you'd like to join that, registrations are still open.  I could guarantee you that the Milo Run is very well organized, being handled by Runrio.  So, no funny things like this one.

And what's a race without the souvenir shots?  I'd just like to share some pictures after the race.  There were no pictures before the race started because at five in the morning, it is still too dark to take decent photos.  The pictures by the plant box are my favorite.  I looked like I just took a walk in the park instead of having just ran more than five kilometers.  What do you think?

Pictures at the Finish Line and the Plant Box Models  :-)

More plant box shots and a group picture


I hope to see some of you in future runs!

  2. Not entirely...being lost in a route because organizers missed out on an important aspect of giving directions is hardly fun. If it was just my fault, now that would be funny.

  3. I actually put the word "funny" there in a rather sarcastic tone but I guess it didn't come out right lol! Just looking on the bright side na lang nga, this is for a good cause and I was able to exercise nevertheless

  4. I might run on dec 9th. It is my daughter's birthday and I plan on celebrating it differently. The problem is she is looking forward to the treat after the fun run. Hmmm. I might just change my mind. Lol!

  6. Disappointing much ang organizers, but as long as you had fun. In case you got lost, you should have just made baligtad your clothes hehe. Seriously, though, sis, inspirasyon kita!!!I am seriously rethinking my fitness goals, and to be fit as you is one of them.

  9. You look fit to me sis. And it doesn't hurt that you live where the air is fresher, what with all those pine trees :-)

  10. Hahaha, well, it's not unusual to ask for a treat after the run. Last Milo Run, there is a breakfast buffet so you might want to treat her there. I hope it's still there because my friends and I plan to have breakfast there after lunch. If I'm not mistaken, it's no more than 150 pesos. Pwede na di ba? It's just on the side, some walking distance to the starting line of 3 and 5K runs. Who knows, we might finally bump into each other :-)

  12. Good luck to your Dec 9 run....

  13. No, I totally got the tone LOL. I think you're taking the craziness lightly. No matter how bad things turn, dapat positive pa rin tayo or at least try to put a positive spin to it.

  14. Running is something I have not done yet! I should, I know. Or at least start with walking, then brisk walking, then jogging and running. LOL I hope someday! :D

  16. I guess the run being funny gave you some abdominal exercises as well. :-)

  17. Never mind the unorganized organizers as long as you had a great time and your body profited from running, the run is considered worth it.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Maybe the organizers made it that way. It's a FUN run anyway. they made fun of the runners. peace! hehe :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. Yikes! you have to run extra distance just because you got lost na kasalan ng organizer kakapagod naman. hehe

  20. I wish I had your dedication. Do you have running shoes that you can recommend?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Hi Ditas! I'm using Adidas. You could also try other brands like Reebok, Nike, Skechers, etc. There are a lot of shoes to choose from. Don't go for the fancy ones muna if you're just a beginner. As long as it's a pair of running shoes and you're comfortable running in it, that would do, I think.

  22. I was actually thinking while running...when do I stop? hehehe...It took a while before I spotted one of the marshals...and she wasn't even sure where to point me to...

    ReplyDelete
  23. Exactly sis...mukhang na good time kami hahaha! Instead of race naging maze lol!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Yup, ganon na lang nga, instead of sulking or doing an amalayer scene.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I wish...but instead of my belly, it was my right eyebrow that got some exercise...I needed a set of weights to keep it down lol!

    ReplyDelete

  32. Honestly, there are times I'm lazy to run specially when the gun time is too early like before 5pm...but when you're there and you take the first steps, it seems like an auto reflex thing...you just keep on running until you see the finish line hehehe... We just target to at least have one fun run per month. :-)
