I’m surprised to know that someone paid my Registration Fee in the Milo 42K this coming July 4, 2010. Since I’ll be running for FREE, I have no more alibi not to join this Marathon. To you, my dear friend…Thanks a lot. If you want me to mention your name via this blogsite, just let me know. My bib number is 14344 and I was registered last Sunday, received an sms from this friend.
I’ll still be donating a certain amount for a ‘charitable institution’ of my choice once I finish this race, and I’ll do it a 50K! (Meaning, additional 8k after I reach the finish line). I have no time target, just pure fun. This will be my 3rd race for this year (Fat Ass 24 hrs in Clark and BDM 102 in Bataan).
With so many concerns regarding Registration Fees, ordinary runners (like me) can’t afford anymore to join races. Even this great running institution (Milo) joined the bandwagon of collecting high fees, from P150 to P500. Majority of my running buddies who are Milo fanatics from the very start opted not to join this race this year.
Milo also adapts the system of Boston Marathon. This is good for some but bad news to many. We all knew for a fact that there are many cheaters and it’s unfair to compete with them. Last year, I talked personally to the Organizer regarding my first-hand encounter with cheaters but since I was not able to produce evidence (pictures etc), I went home empty-handed.
Now forget about those cheaters. Concentrate on your time, strategy and how you will enjoy this race. It’s not my duty to caught those ‘green scalawags’ in uniform. I’ll leave them to those marshals who will oversee this event. But If I have opportunity, I will not hesitate to report this on this blogsite.
For the next two weeks, my mind will be obsessed with green. Let me be ‘green minded’, finish this race and hoping to qualify. But If I can’t, it’s not the end of the world. I will try again because I’m not afraid to fail.
See you in Green! 6/24/10!!!
God be Praised!
A little bird was flying south for the winter. It was so cold the bird froze and fell to the ground into a large field.
While he was lying there, a cow came by and dropped some dung on him.
As the frozen bird lay there in the pile of cow dung, he began to realize how warm he was.
The dung was actually thawing him out!
He lay there all warm and happy, and soon began to sing for joy.
A passing cat heard the bird singing and came to investigate.
Following the sound, the cat discovered the bird under the pile of cow dung, and promptly dug him out and ate him.
