Sa 1st edition sa Pamutan Marathon 2017 atong Dominggo, 14K ra ako giapilan. Maba ra sya but kon tukion pag-ayo, taas kaayo istoryahon. But in short, ang madumduman ra jud nako nga ga sige og balik2x sa akong huna-huna adtong panahona kay “KAYATA giilad na sad ko sa mga bungoton nga Cebu Trail Runners!!!” Forgive my french but Bisaya ta para intense.

Excited kaayo ko padung sa event kay taud-taud na jud ko wala kaapil anang “trail run.” But derecho ka hanaw akong ka excited pag sulod namo sa trail head nga ang naghuwat kay muddy lapuk. Gawd, di sad palupig ang kalibunan (trail) sa Cebu City, nagpakitang gilas sad sya.

Tungod kay ang akong “technical trail skill” kay non-existent, so mura ko’g nikatkat og playground slide nga nakamedyas — 1 step up, 2 steps slide lagapak. Para mas lingaw, naay bangin sa kilid. Samot na sa downhill, kamuritsing ang agi. Wa lagi ko injury or cramps, pero akong tiil perte na pangurog sa kakuyaw.

So hastang lipaya nako nga nakatunob og dalan (kanang dalan nga sementado) after 4 hours (for 8KM). Yes, NAKARAUS din . Feeling victorious na ko kay, yes, dalan na jud mi agi. Until niingon ang mga Tito sa aid station nga adto daw mi Kabatbatan agi.

Thank you to the #TitosofCebu!

Kabatbatan like it rhymes with Abat! I tried to make ilad myself nga kaya ra lagi kay 6KM na lang. But di na jud nako mailad. Nag flashback ang old memory nako aning lugara, ug kasakit jud puros akong madumduman.

Sakit kaayo sa akong dughan nga nagbaybay sa 6KM nga “P*ste oy, nailad na sad ko!” Wa jud ko’y madumduman nga trail run aning Cebu Trail Runners nga nalipay ko. But kon malipay sad ko, di na seguro na trail run ni Meyux.

So di na lang ni nako tas-on akong race story. There’s that beautiful moment, and there’s that brutally beautiful moment. And, the latter is just so hard to capture the “essence” of it in a photo of it or put them in words. The only way that I can let you feel it is kon magpailad na sad ta.

It can be described with this runners’ smiles. They’re in the longer category (probably 42K), got lost in the trail, but when their group overtake on me, they still had that big smiles!

Or basin nangilad ra sad ni siya! =)

Salamat sa tanang mga organizer, supporters, sponsors, ug volunteers aning dagana! Special shoutout to David, the 14K sweeper! =)

CONGRATS to all the participants of the 1st Pamutan Marathon 2017!

(I’ll upload a few photos to fb.com/runroo page.)
