“The life of a UP student is uphill.” – Atty. Liza Corro 😂 #runUPhill #upanniversaryrun

My last 21K was Hunat Sugbu, and my “performance” was very bad that I loathed myself (effect!). So I had a very low expectation for myself last UP Cebu The UP hill Challenge Anniversary Run 21K. I was thinking that I’d probably finish it in 4 hours because it’s uphill on the first half. And, though it’s downhill after the turning point, I’m also very bad at downhill. My downhill can actually be worse than uphill.

Cebu, don’t grow too fast!

It’s been awhile that I ran this area, Lahug to Busay. I wonder why fun runs don’t use this route. It’s a pretty fun route. I guess it still has less traffic compared to other parts of Cebu City.

The 21K had a small crowd of runners. It was nice to see friends’ familiar faces. =)

Oh lovely turning point!

The way back to the finish line was downhill. I tried to cruise it as fast as I could.

And, I think I did because the timer said “3:10.” I know it’s far from decent time but I haz no care! I’m just happy, and feeling #blessed!

Bien of Proactiv Races, Thank you! =)
