I Endured! The 49.28 Kms Run…

22 02 2009

Today, the farthest route in my entire life as a runner was finally set, and the distance? A whooping 49.28 kms based on my heart rate monitor. The route? San Pedro Laguna to Naic Cavite. The time? 5 hours and 45 minutes from 5am until 10:45am. Some data were: in zone 5.35, average hour 133, peak hour 210, minimum hour 57, total calories 3,375. We are all wearing milo singlets for uniformity and take note…we also have a race packet! That race packet helped a lot, for the motorists thought that there is a race going on, giving us some space and respect. It also served as our identification ID, for in it we wrote our contact number at home, just in case of emergency!

My companions were Bert and Romy. Here are some pictures of that event:

We ended the event here at the boundary of Sabang and Naic, some 500 meters away from the town proper due to very extreme hot weather condition…

We’re eating like Monsters…

After running and eating…we are now ready to return home. It’s 11:30am already. I can’t believe that I can go far like this one. I’m exhausted,burned and wasted, but I’m happy and satisfied.

Next route…San Pedro to Tagaytay City!
