Enervon “Happy” Trail Run

Remind me NEVER to run on trails again!!! This is how I felt when I ran the course of Enervon Happy Trail Run. It was the toughest trail race I have ever run, the race wherein I almost quit, wherein I got bruises from falling (again), and my worst PR of all, I finished the race in 1:39 (:().

I join this race because I won in the Enervon’s promo at Facebook, I get to choose what race category I would want to run. I was aiming for a good finish time of 1:10. But I was only halfway through the race course when I slide and fell in a steep area of the trail, causing me to fell flat on the ground, I had to use my hands to protect my face from getting hurt. I lay there for quite a while, I was waiting for someone to help me, but I guess there were no one near me. I stood up, ran, and went on my way not looking on my bruised leg.  But I had to walk once in a while, the impact on my leg made it hard for me run, bummer! No more PR for me, I just have to finish the race no matter what. And the fact that Timberland Heights is my waterloo, insult was added to injury, Ouch!

Here are some pictures from the race:

My kids with Tiffin and Drey

My kids joined the 500m dash, Rachelle placed 9th place overall and Rebeccah grabbed 11th place, I ‘am a proud mommy, good thing they got Erick’s genes. 🙂

On their way to the finish line

Proud Daddy

Even though I didn’t get my PR, I had fun at the Enervon Happy Trail Run, a lot of freebies were given to the participants. Thanks to Tiffany Batillo of Takbo.ph for the complimentary racekits for Erick and the kids. ‘Till my next trail run at Camaya Coast. 😉

King of the Mountain Race and a little bit of Wowowee =)

A day before the King of the Mountain race, esposo and I went to Second Wind Running Store to register for the said race, and I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Neville Manaois of Pinoy Ultra Runners. We chatted for a while about the race course and some other stuffs about running. After that, off we went to Ultra for some run.

It was a break from the usual Sunday race, we joined the King of the Mountain which was held last Saturday. There were a lot of runners and bikers who joined, some familiar faces and some new.

The race consist of a 1.5K road which was all uphill leading to the 7K trail which was mostly uphill, muddy and wet. I was gasping for some air almost all the course, and stops once in a while when I see my heart rate elevating. I’m trying on a heart rate training (my hubby insisted on doing it so that I’ll be able to monitor if any palpitation occurs, thank you for the Polar RS200 again).

I met Sir Rene aka Jazzrunner, we ran together mostly in the trail course, I even got many pictures from him while running and walking. I was already running for 1hour and 20minutes while I past the 8K mark, since most of the remaining 2K is downhill, I decided to finish it in 10minutes. My kids and hubby where already waiting for me, good thing they were there, for both of my legs had cramps, instead of running downhill, I walked slowly. 500meters to go, I dashed to the finish line ignoring the pain in my legs, I crossed the finish line in 1hour ans 33minutes. Mikey gave a first aid on my cramps, thank you so much, you’re a life-saver.

Esposo, finished 54minutes (he’s becoming faster and faster). Free food were given after the race. Here are some pictures from the race day.

After the KOTM, off we went to Antipolo Church and some swimming at Amoranto. We were also scheduled to watch the Wowowee All Stars in Araneta, it was a request from my mother-in-law we couldn’t refuse. Here are some pictures I took on that event.

We had a blast that day, went straight to bed to have a good night sleep for another race on the following day.

A Biker's wife

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

IMG_0156

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.

IMG_0197Off to another 5K trail run

IMG_0212Almost there

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.
