You better run for your life, if you can

tumakbo ako ng 10K race in the rain nung sunday – ang tawag nila rito ay “dinosaur dash“. hindi ko alam kung bakit ito ang ginamit nilang pangalan. siguro dahil matatanda na lahat ng mga sumali. hehehe.  actually, karamihan ng mga tumakbo ay mga bata dahil ang race na ito ay para sa tustin public schools foundation. naka publish na yung mga results at eto ang tinakbo ko:

367th place out of 634
43rd place in the 40 to 44 year old age class

Total time: 58:33 minutes
Pace: 9:25 minutes/mile

ang goal ko ay tumakbo ng 10 kilometers under 1 hour at (in the words of brother mike) tenksbitugad, na achieve ko naman. hindi na masama para sa 42 year old (pero may asim pa rin) na diabetic.

P.S. oo nga pala, prediction ko – si obama ang mananalo sa election mamaya. baka landslide pa nga.

  1. galeeng mo bro at na-achieve mo yung goal mo. por d pers taym, sumali din ako sa corporate run dito sa Auckland. 5k lang naman siya pero ngayon lang ako napasama sa takbuhan.

    Amen to that, pards! Ang tagal ko nang nag citizen dito sa U.S. pero never akong nag participate sa U.S. election. Pero iba talaga ang dating nitong si soon to be U.S. President Obama (hopefully)! For the first time, I feel na magkakaroon na ng fair chance ang future generation nating mga minorities sa pinaka mataas na office sa Washington.

    Who knows? Baka magkaroon din ng Fil-Am U.S. president in the future. I know na may mga skeptics dyan pero yan din ang katwiran ng mga blacks dito noon at hindi nila akalain na makikita nila ang first black U.S. president in their lifetime. I voted for Obama/Biden 3 weeks ago through absentee/early voting. Wow, win or lose, I never felt so good doing my part to make such history! Go Obama baby!

  3. GALING, JAY! 6 miles in under an hour! Whew, kakapagod just thinking about it. I ran 4 miles last week and it took me an hour. Man, I need to get serious again…

  4. The times they a changin man …and it’s Obama ..Barok your’e the man ! este barak..hehe… The first American black President.. in the Philippines some are pinning their hope for a black Philippine President ..Jejomar Binay !

  5. thank you ninaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaang.

    run for your life – probably, one of the most un-politically correct pop song about women of all the time.

    TV: yan nga ang naisip ko kaninang kanta nung papasok ako sa opisina. lalo na yung part about – “Don’t stand in the doorway, Don’t block up the hall”

    mye: kung pwede lang akong bumoto, i would have voted for obama and no to prop8.

    tito rolly, madali lang naman yung prediction. it was inevitable if you read the signs.

    richy: rock and roll sa seattle. nabasa ko nga yung email. ok sana pero malayo.

  6. Wow impressive. Talagang tuloy-tuloy ang pag-aalaga mo sa katawan mo at staying active. I like your hobbies – running. Endurance. I will down a pint in your honour.
    🙂

    I was so so happy about Obama’s successful election. Kahit di ako Kano, the message is tremendous.

  7. hi unkyel, im very disappointed with prop 8 result although last time i heard it’s still up in the air. i was thinking CA would defeat prop 8, but i know this is fight is not over.
