Last week we went to Mindanao to join the Kalatungan Ridge Ultimate Race (KRUR) in Pangantucan, Bukidnon. Just the sound of the name of the place, I could imagine beautiful wild trails. Originally, we were planning to be in the 30KM category but as race day got nearer, we chickened out, and sign up for the 14K. In short, we were not prepared. (For more details of this race and other exciting trail runs in Mindanao, check verticaltosky.com.)
As always, we’re excited to join races outside Cebu. So excited, we went there days 4 days in advance of the race date. We landed in Davao City.
We’re hoping it will be gone by race day but the pain got worse. So what was originally from 30KM category, to 14K category trail run in Bukidnon, I ended up registering for a 5K Color Me Run in Cagayan de Oro City. =)
When the pain of achilles tendinitis did not let up, with a very disappointed heart, we decided to move to Cagayan de Oro (where we would board a plane back to Cebu) instead of going to Pangantucan, Bukidnon. To try to make up for the disappointment of missing the trail run, I signed up to whatever upcoming fun run in CDO.
It’s my first time to join a COLOR RUN, and it came with some cool “shades” in its race kit. =)
There’s a lot of firsts in this fun run. First time to join a COLOR RUN, first time to run alone in a fun run outside Cebu, and first time to wear SHADES! =) And, I guess it was also my first time to be in a race whose participants are mostly the “young ones.”
So let me put on my shades,
and more #selfies #squadgoals!
So this is how fun a color run is!
But seriously, so happy to see a classmate from the trail run MAPAWA , from Ozamis group! =)
And, by the way, I chanced upon the MAPAWA Trail Run registration booth in ROX, Centrio! For more details about this race, check their facebook page here >>. =)
