Greenfield City Clean Air Run 2011 Post event

Excited to run again after a year ago at the vicinity of Greenfield City. Me and my husband arrived there early since Sta. Rosa is only less than thirty minutes drive away from our place. Last year I joined the 3k route but this year I got the chance to explore Greenfield City more by doing the 10k distance. Compared to last year our second run here was more convenient since the race starts early in the morning and there were no traffic yet to stress the runners to get into the venue.

This map looks better than my last which doesn't look as challenging as this one. The maze like part is fun... By the way from the venue itself it is really breath taking you can see beautiful greenery's and from a far you can see Tagaytay's Palace in the Sky.
I met someone along the route, a very kind runner who offered me her cold bottled drink so i could cool the sore muscles on my leg which I already have a day before the event. We even got the chance to know each other while we chat along the route. I don't mind really if it eats my time to finish since getting to know other runners are also one of my interest. We even share the same dilemma about our weight :D

Together with Cavite Running Buddies (CRB) we really had a great run at Greenfield City Clean Air Run 2011... We are not just runners but also a CLEAN AIR advocate... @

My 16K suicide run experience

I was emailed by Greentennial Half-Marathon race organizers that Cavite Running Buddies is one of their Running Group Partner and they are giving away 10 free race kits because of that. Happy to hear the good news that CRB will be running for free on the said event, I overlooked the distance giving me the impression that it was a 10K run but apparently it was a 10 miler. I haven't tried to run that long before so it gave me a tense feeling that I might not finish, unprepared and under trained. We also came late on the event which adds up to my stress. Been the last one to start minutes after the 16K gun start because I was still lining up to pee. I even run without my watch nor a walkman to keep me entertained. With sored muscles from our training day before the race it makes running my first 16K more excruciating. Didn't want to injure myself so I listened to my body and planned to do a very relaxed pace. Although there was an urge to run fast since I think I was the last one to finish my legs won't allow me, pain is all over. I was just being boosted up by my group mates whenever we saw each other along the route. There were times that I almost want to give up and just stop. I even called my husband just to let him know that I'm in pain. But then Coach Liza's advice is to walk if I can't run anymore so I just did what she said. I even imagine myself crawling just to finish. After hours under the steaming heat of the sun, finally, two more turns and it was all over. Happy and excited to reach my most awaited finish line I started to run again. Almost about to cry I saw a familiar face waiting for me to get there. She was one of my schoolmates before and also a new member of the group. I'm shy to let her see that I'm about to break out so I really hold my tears back. Fulfilled, yes! But still disappointed and honestly frustrated that I might have finished it strong if only I was well trained to go that far. :(
