Runrio always set the place to MOA so I went to the seaside and saw the rosy crowd with vivacious aura while stretching and chatting with their friends. Speaking of friend, Shiela was still on the road when I arrived and waited for 30 minutes and observed how organize Runrio is.
Since it was all about gender, 5k girl runners were assembled earlier than the boys with a gap of 5 minutes and the gun start for us girls happened at 5:45. The girls beside me were aggressive and flee from the starting line right away while I was busy assembling my phone timer for documentation purposes and as expected, Shiela is all ready 200 m away from me.
The first 2 km is easier than I expected, maybe it is because of my incessant runs during weekdays with the fear to be in the runners bottom list. Running for 5 km competition has been crawling to my head for days and the thought crippled me off for if I felt weak with my 3 km run, how much more can I have with the 5 km? Downloaded Runtastic Pedometer to my phone, I was able to measure the distance and the time of my practice.
I sensed some relief after seeing the 3 point something km signage because of the deeper inhales I am having but I avoid getting hydrated with the water station because I kind of feel pained in my tummy area with too much liquid intake when running. Moreover, a frustration I had when each stride and run I had, I can still not see the finish line because I forgot my face towel to my bag, I just want to get it. How funny is that?
The final result of my hardship bear fruit with a big difference to my practice! I'm so glad that I made an improvement. Below is the official result of my run (41 mins) and Shiela's run (39 mins). Out of 1,088 5k boys & girls runners we were ranked 320 and 359. I'm so happy! The winner for 5 km run is a male - Mr. Jackson Chirchir (19 mins and 33 sec - gun time) while the winner for 10 km run is a female - Ms. Joan Aiyabei (34 mins and 22 sec - gun time). There is nothing more amazing to them! Congratulations!
