Our November Races

After joining five (5) races last month, the family will participate in at least three (3) races this November. As of this writing, i have registered the runaholic family in VSO Bahaginan on the 9th, Lakad Laban sa Pekeng Gamot on the 16th, and 6th Animo! on the 23rd. My second child will have his first 10k race on the 9th. May the force be with him!!!

If not for the Confirmation of Buns scheduled on the 15th, we could have registered for the New Balance Power Race in Clark considering that we were given a privilege night coupon at Fontana Resort & Country Club (many thanks to Mr & Mrs T). Sayang! But its no use feeling sad because on that weekend we can still run as family in LLPG at MOA after complying with our spiritual obligation.

As always, there will be next time…but wait, there was a change of plan… the hubby asked if i am willing to run in the 10k on the Power Race and without even thinking i bravely said yes!  We consulted the kids and  both responded in the affirmative.  So it is final, we will join the 10k Power Race on the 16th…

That will be the first 10k for hubby, unica ija and me… i am super excited but at the back of my mind i have this monster fear inside me… to be honest i am afraid to run outside my comfort zone . . . whew . . .  i don’t know why am i feeling like this…. i don’t know how to muster a lot of courage but i hope and pray that i can finish this race within the curfew…

  2. annalene, just relax and maintain your training pace during the race. start with a conservative pace and finish with your fastest pace. don’t forget to drink every water station. good luck and see you this sunday.
