It’s been a while since my last post because I’ve been so busy lately. At the end of the day, I’m almost too tired to add entry to my blog. Here ‘s one entry that have been past due, almost two weeks ago, the 3rd Clark Off-road Duathlon was held and my esposo joined. This race was scheduled on the same day as the Mizuno (which BTW marks my first year running anniversary). Most of the runners in the running community here in Manila I know (and don’t know) is joining the Mizuno Race in The Fort, I would have been there if I had a choice but I have to be the “supportive” wife for at least a day or two. I would just be posting picture from the event (the recap would come from my husband, if he’ll do it).

It was good day to race, after several days of rains the weather was cooperating on the race day. Esposo said, there were a lot of strong athletes who joined including those who are member of the Philippine Team, Mr. Leo Oracion and many more, he assessed it would be hard to win in a race where strong competitors are so many. The race started with a briefing from the organizer
Notice how strong the runners look

All smile for the camera 🙂
Start of the river trail (Sacobia)
After four bike loop, participants have to run another 5K of trail. It looks like a grueling race, biking and running under the scorching heat of sun, river crossing, and wet shoes.
Off to another 5K trail run
Esposo’s time (according to me):
First 5K Run Loop – 29 minutes
First 7.5K Bike Loop – 30 minutes
Second 7.5K Bike Loop – 29 minutes
Third 7.5K Bike Loop – 32 minutes
Fourth 7.5K Bike Loop – 30 minutes
Second 5K Run – 35 minutes
He ranked 23rd overall but was supposed to be 19th because the person in charge of recording the time did not get his number and name correctly. Sayang!
To all those who joined, congratulations whether you finish or not it’s one tough race. See you all again next year and hopefully I won’t just be the photographer but a participant too. Other photos are posted in my Facebook account. Please grab it there. (Search nyo po Let Guieb). Thanks.
