Since this was the country’s first midnight marathon, the full marathoners started at midnight. Duh! :)) Then the 21 km runners were next. We started at 3:30 in the morning. My goal for that run was to finish…and to finish injury-free.
There were 13,000 runners that day. Each runner donated 3 mangroves for the mangrove forest in Mindanao.
Running the skyway was challenging. To distract me from pain, I watched the other runners and hoped to see somebody I knew. I saw some celebrities and then one by one I saw my siblings.
Ah, the finish line. And after running 21 kilometers, crossing it was life-changing…and all for the better! I congratulate myself and all the other finishers for conquering the skyway. Woohoo! We did it!
My first 21K medal…can’t stop smiling about it. 😀
