Unforgettable Moment in Running: 4th PAU Tagaytay – Nasugbu (50K)

I was on the lead pack during the 4th PAU 50K (Tagaytay – Nasugbu) and around KM.36 was looking for water supply and power gel. Because I don’t have a support crew and vehicle, I was scavenging the emptied power gels that the lead runner left on the road. It was grueling but I need to finish it. It was pure determination and finally I reached the finish line 2nd with the time of 4:15.

Reasons for running: He calls it “Bisyoko ito.” An addiction to running.

Fave Running Quote: “Break All Boundaries” -TNF

Worst injury: None so far.

Post-race food: Nilagang Malunggaywith egg, onions and a pinch of salt.

(Hmmm… I haven’t tried that, will do that too sometime.)
