Milo 42k Race Report Part 2



This guy was awesome, 3.47 in his first try for this event. My buddy all the way from Laguna. Congrats to you-Henry de Castro.


I arrived 5 minutes before the race started…



At the finish line 6 hours and 14 minutes later.




Medal borrowed from Henry. Just for photo ops.


Henry waited for me until I reached the finish line. Thank you bro, without you I don’t know how to commute going back home-for I can’t walk normally. I salute you for this, and I owe you one.

Well let me say my utmost appreciation for these people who made this marathon possible for me:

1. Those well wishers-while running in my comfortable pace, I heard some runners and watchers yelling,’ go runnerforchrist.’ That made me to continue in spite of pain, for I knew I was carrying His name.

2. Ultra runner Francisko Lapira aka Isko- my classmate in BDM102, TNF100 and Botaka100, as I’ve said in my previous post, he was with me until 17 kms of this race.

3. Bert Rodillas-my yoga teacher who’s advise cannot be denied and untiring visit in my place every time I conquered different places.

4. Ultra runner Julius Giron-while biking, he offered his assistance if he could carry my belt bag all the way to the finish line, to lessen my load. I did not allow him, but I can’t forget your intention of helping me.

5. Sir Jovie, who gave me a ‘high 5’ along the route; Jonnel, George, Ralph, Jun, Caloy, Ian (Seabiscuit), Camanava support group for a cup of gatorade, Sam, Denz, Vener-who congratulated me at the finish line, congrats bro for making it too at sub 4, and to all my classmates in the BDM, TNF and Botak-just seeing you in the race inspires me. We belong to the same kind of breed- Addict! (lol)

6. group at the finish line (Jin and Que), thanks for the support and applause.

7. To all my prayer partners in the church.

8. To those unknown good Samaritan people along the way

9. To Mr. Rudy Biscocho and his team for again another job well done.

10. To You, Jesus Christ-my real Hero and Master!

God be Praised!

Hey congratulations!

Ronnie, congratulations on something that I don’t believe I could ever do and that is completing an ultra and a marathon back-to-back. Praise God that you’re okay although I’m sure you’re a bit sore today. Also, the many friends that you have there is………….priceless!

Take care my friend!

Wayne, years from now I’ll look back to what I did and some will say that, ‘that’s crazy’. But I’m happy that I did it.Thank you my dear friend for your visit. God bless you always.

Hey Ron, is there a flash override on your camera or do you eschew strobe as a matter of taste? Your night frames are almost uniformly dark, even at pointblank range.

Congratulations on your successive ultra/marathon weekend finishes.

Thanks Cecil for the feedback, I’m only using a lowly Nokia N70 and maybe I was not able to activate the night mode selection on my cp. I have also a camera but when I’m in any races, I’m comfortable with my cellphone, dual purpose placed inside my New Balance Hydration belt. God bless bro.
