A Run for the Pasig River 10.10.10

The 10 10 10 Run for Pasig River Fun Run was a success! I, together with Angel and Matt, run for the restoration of the Ilog Pasig and at the same time joined the attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the largest ECO-foot race in the world. That's hitting two birds in one run! People from all walks of life have come together for a common cause - to save ilog Pasig and give the coming generations a clear future.

We arrived at Quirino at around 5am and Roxas blvd from Quirino - Buendia is already closed due to the run. People were coming in from different directions towards CCP where the 5k runner will start. (that's us!) 3K Runner will start in MOA and 10k runners will start in Ayala. There were exercises before the run but i dont think people can still stretch dahil sobrang jampacked na. After the gun start, runners flooded Roxas - Buendia-MOA (the 5k route). After the run, runners are gathered sa MOA concert grounds for some freebies and for the program, we just squeeze our way in sa tent that distributes the finisher's bracelet and then umalis na kami because of sooo many runners dun and we're hungry na din. We walked going to roxas then rode the jeep to Quirino, then ate at Sinangag Express (my request) and then went home.

There were around 150,000 runners who register and join the run awhile ago. Despite the headache the 5k was so worth it! Kahit hindi makatakbo ng maayos kanina sa sobrang daming tao. Haha! The feeling after you stepped on the finish line was so refreshing!

Congrats to all!
