UNILAB Run United 2

Event: UNILAB Run United 2
Date: June 17, 2012
Venue: Bonifacio Global City / SM Mall of Asia
Organizer: Runrio

The rain didn’t stop me from running at the Run United 2 last Sunday morning, and neither the same with almost 14,000 runners (from different categories) that showed up.  It was another well-organized race event, as expected from Runrio, where every runner's need were provided: from the course to marshals, hydration stations and even the portalets.

Elvin, Omar and I arrived at the assembly area and saw over 5,000 runners brave enough to face the rain. It was just a drizzle when the race started. Indeed, a perfect weather for a run. Also, a great preparation for a rainy Milo Marathon isn't it?

I saw many familiar faces along the route. I even tried to catch up with Idol Michelle Estuar's pace for 3 kms. Woooh! She's so fast so I decided to slow down and run on my own pace.

My first 15 km was good until I felt some blisters on my feet. Aish.. It made me run slow. I can't keep up my pace 'cause it was aching so I decided to do run-walk on the remaining kilometers.

I was unable to finish within my target but it was another sweet finish. In spite of those blisters, I was able to beat my PR by 1 minute. Thank God for all the strength. :)

Congrats again to Unilab Active Health and Runrio for another successful event! See you all again in Run United 3.
