1st PAU (Philippine Association of UltraRunners) Run last May 9, 2010 proved to be the hardest of them all.
It’s even harder than BDM 102, some say. I could only agree.
I still can recall the elation I felt when I crossed the 2nd BDM 102 finishline. It was bliss!
Minutes and hours pass after crossing the finish line and I still could smile and walk around and share the joy to so many people.
It’s a lot different when I crossed the 1st PAU RUn. It was pure joy…
…but minutes after some photo-ops, I felt great pain on my knee. I was wincing and grimacing.
It was an odd feeling. I was just so used to a big time cramps, but not a knee pain. Looking back at what I did, I guess it’s the downhill. Conquered fast but for a price. Add to that what seemed to be a never-ending uphill walk and run to the finish line. Unforgettable indeed!
Happy to have conquered the hardest route. Looking forward with great excitement to conquering what’s next.
