I Ran (Not Walk) at the 10.10.10 Run for Pasig River

We got stuck in traffic minutes before the gun start of the 10.10.10 Run for Pasig River. We continued on foot and did some running (warm up) up to the starting point. Luckily, we made it just on time before the start. A rush of thousands of runner rushed frantically towards us since we are in front of the starting line, so we waited for a bit before me and my friends joined the rest of the runners.

I ran nonstop starting from the Starting Line in Star City up to the 3K mark; I did some walking because I started to felt a stitch on my right side. But I was able to pace with the men of Army and Police up to the finish line with a Gun time of 31 minutes.

The race went fine. I don’t expect much of order in the race since hundreds of thousands of participants showed up for the race. There were some complaints about lack of hydration stops, serious runners got stuck by walking participants, not everyone got a finisher’s band, etc. But all I care is that I finished and was able to help in my own way save Pasig River and get the Philippines a shot at Guinness World Records for the most number of runners.
