I took this picture yesterday along Bayani Road. This is just one of part of the route which I expect will be dark. I hope that Finish Line and Kenny Roger’s provide us with enough marshals and lights … please.
I signed up for the 15K. Yes, the race which will have us running roughly 2K inside Heritage Park. I expect that for most of us this will be the fastest race segment. 😀
For this race, I’d recommend wearing a light colored top preferably with reflectorized details. It will be easier to spot and avoid us. Last thing we need in this race is human pileup. I wish I had a headlamp because it would definitely make things easier.
If you still have time, do a drive-by of the route tonight or on Friday. When the sun sets, Lawton, Bayani and Heritage is a whole new world.
Try to take it easy on Saturday and stay off your feet as much as possible. Unlike early morning races, we do not have the luxury of a full night’s sleep.
Lastly, don’t forget to bring your Eat and Donate stub.
Will I be racing or taking it easy? I will be wearing Newtons and taking a couple of Roctanes with me but my pace will be dictated by how safe the route will be for runners.
See you all on Saturday and let’s all stay safe.
