Paabilisan Road Race Series, 19 October 2008

Just an easy practice run for me after running my first 21k the Sunday before. Can’t push myself even if I was told by a fellow Happy Feet runner to aim a sub 1:00 time. I had a slight fever the night before but I wouldn’t want to miss this run. In fact, I look forward to this!

I thought I didn’t do well but the surprise of my life when I saw the results, I clocked 1:04.12 for the 10k run. As usual, the day wouldn’t be complete without the Happy Feet peeps having breakfast together at Paul Calvin’s Deli.

Thanks to Ruth and Doc Oknoy for facilitating my registration to this run. Thanks too for Coach Jo-ar for just being there just to say, “Go, Roselle!” when I was on my way to the the first turn around point, second loop.
