Celebrity Run?

I can't rant about this race as I got my 10K race bib for free. So, I'll just write here what I overheard from other runners during the race.

21K runner 1: "What time ba ang start?"
21K runner 2: "Gun start is 5:00AM. But knowing the race director, it's going to start late."
R: "ehem..."

lady runner: "WORST RACE EVER!!!"
R: "hindi naman, almost lang..."

manong 3K runner: "Dun ako napatakbo sa ruta ng 21K. Walang marshall!"
R: "ayos! times 7! apir!"

21K runner 3: "Sobra ng 1.2 yung ruta!!!"
R: "manong, plus 1.2K ka pa pala."

10K runner 1: "ang gulo nun route papasok sa McKinley!!! nagbabanggaan mga runners!!!"
10K runner 2: "marshalls at the bottom of McKinley are just making kwento with themselves, you know!!!"
R: "errrrr..."

R: "I got a new PB for 10K. according to my Garmin, I finished in 54:44 for a 9.71Km route. Short, I know. But even if it was an exact 10K distance, I'd still get a new PB."

21K virgin runner: "walang certificate?"
R: "wala eh... meron ata birth certificate."

    thanks bro! see you sa Rizal Day run!

  9. Hehe nice one Rod. While I personally had no problems with the race itself except for the excess distance, I heard horror show ang 5k, and kulang sa distance ang 10k. Oh well, sayang naman.
