My September 2009 Races
As one of my running buddies would say, “hindi ako nagpapaghuli sa takbo“. =P It’s true most of the time, if you ask me.
Which is why as early as this month, I have already signed up for 2 major races for September, both of them falling under the half-marathon category. Once again, it’s back-to-back efforts for me!
September 20 – ROTARun 2009 @ McKinley Hill
Sponsored by the Rotary Club, Php 200 will get you in this event, regardless of whatever distance you’re running (3K/5K/10K/21K). Race pack includes your race number, race route, freebies at the end of the race, and a good-looking singlet. The main beneficiary, according to Doc Pinky, are Philippine General Hospital cancer patients. Click here for further details.
September 27 – New Balance Power Race @ The Fort
There are also different race categories here (3K/5K/10K/21K), with varying entry fees per category, ranging from Php 250 to Php 500. The race pack also includes your race number, race route, a 15% discount coupon at New Balance stores, and a sleek-fitting singlet. This race is also for the benefit of different cancer foundations.

My training for these races starts this Monday, August 24, with the following regimen:
I’ll be going for a new 21K personal record on the Power Race, for the reason that the ROTARun tackles the McKinley Hill paths twice – yes, you read it right, TWICE. Hence, I will treat this as a simple long run with an easy running pace. The 21K Power Race route will only ply the said path once, so there’s more chances for me to beat my time here.
Time to get serious once again. This should be exciting.
Wish me luck. =)
