If my first running event was a kind of mess because we just really got late and out of stock singlets, this time we are able to manage to come earlier and enjoyed the cool breeze of Manila at 5 AM while hearing the funny DJs of Love Radio. We checked-in our baggage and roam around to see those booths and take a picture to their photo booth with free Bambini powder or cologne of your choice. Next is the Tattoo Broadband which is endorsed by Bamboo. We mix Bamboo's song like we are a DJ through computer in exchange of having a free utensils set for packed lunch.

3k runners were just really excited and assembled at 5:20 even without hearing any cue from the organizers so Shiela and I mingled with the fantastic and the largest crowd of runners. We had our warm-up and bang! Gun start at 6 AM.
I guess I've run a little faster than my previous fun run as I was able to manage my time to run in the weekdays. The safety reminder I learned from the MCs:
1. Do not take too much water during the marathon to avoid the feeling of being bloated thus affecting your performance
2. When you are really panting, exhale through your nose and not through your mouth to have deeper and much supply of oxygen in the body.
After getting all sweaty, we lined up for our loot bags and certificate of participation and saw our old friend, took their 5k run and take a picture because it's a small world after all!
By the way, what's inside our loot bags?
