Opening presentation of some Deaf Youth
Though there were only four people from the Strathletes group who joined the event, two pioneer runners (me and MinnieRunner) and two newbie runners (Richard Garcia and Rica Labrador), the event was still full of fun with the presence of some of our friends. RunningPoy also ran with us without registering - thus, branded as a 'Bandit Runner', lol! And for the first time, my son's yaya (Cris Artiaga) also joined the event for the 3k category. My wife and her brother and sister wasn't able to join due to unavailability of their singlet sizes, so my wife just took the responsibility of taking our photos, thanks by! :)
The Strathlete Runners with Aizen's Yaya
I only joined the 5k distance category for this event due to an overdose (lol) in running events for the past month. I have been feeling weak also due to incomplete sleep brought by my insomnia and inconsistent body clock (or maybe due to lack of self-discipline in my sleeping habit, hehehe!).
Enjoying UP campus' cool winter breeze
The post event was not as festive as the other running events though. With the number of sponsors that CMDP invited, only the Manila Water was there to support the event and hydrate the runners. Fortunately, the 'taho' vendors are around to fill-up our protein and sugar needs before and after the race. Kudos to these two supporters! :) And since there were no booths to be lined-up upon for claiming some freebie items, we just enjoyed the surrounding, took photos, and watched my son dance in front of some spectators, hehehe!
