I ran another 5K at SM Mall of Asia. Since I am not actually aiming for a podium-finish, my goal for this race is just to beat my previous record of 43:37, and I did!
Rexona Run 2010, with official time of 42:00.
I know it's not impressive, but I am happy to report that I did beat my previous record. :)
I almost gave up at 2-km mark when I started having headache and blurred vision, good thing there's enough water stations to keep me going plus RunRio provided wet sponges! *cool*
I am a bit sad because my friends went ahead of me and there's no one to support me, yeah, I am alone for 42 minutes. :(
Anyway, here are some of the photos we took, barely a decent group photo, because we seemed to be disoriented after the race!
I really wanted to line up for PhotoVendo, but the boys disagreed! I guess women are really more patient than men, huh? :D
And so we chose this over PhotoVendo: SELECTA ICE CREAM!
Here we are while watching the 21K finishers and dreaming for that gorgeous medal! Hmmm... but that can wait.. our goal is to run 21K next year. :)
Lastly, I am proud to say that I survived Portalets again! *LOL*
Ok, so what should I do next time?
Bring mp3/ipod. (I don't have one yet)
Get enough training so next time I can keep up with my friends.
Apply sunblock! <- This one I forgot, aaargh! ^.^
My next run would be RunRio Leg 3 Timex Run in November, and my goal is to run 10K! I grabbed a FREE copy of The Bull Runner magazine and there's a 10K program there. I am going to share that to you in a separate post.
