I am PROUD

(literally)

…of these people. They are my friends, and they are my team-BORING-mates!

Wait…let me re-phrase!

They ran and never gave up! Well, some did (oops!).

These guys tested their own will-power.

BORED and ready to cry!

Even the heavens cried!

We have no idea about how they actually felt. What we do know is that they have gone thru a lot of pain – and pushed themselves forward until it’s finished.

Both of the above runners missed the cut-off by no more than 1 hour and 30 ++ minutes.

These guys rock! I feel for them. I know how it is. I am well aware of what they must have gone thru.

See the time? Isn’t that worth capturing? You’d never understand how it is to finish a very long race and miss the time by a few minutes …

richard is boo

wow!

A finish short of time. A proposal. A celebration. No wonder WE are called crazy…

sun is still up

Yan Dizon

Yan and Rona (the sisters) *sniff* sniff* sniff*

It’s boring, yes. It’s melo-dramatic. It’s an ultramarathon!

dark already (obviously)

Cindy Sevilla and Rej Santos

Despite the time – you can all see the happy face. πŸ™‚

3 Sadly declared a DNF. All for the sake of their good health – and we respect them for that.

I respect all and everybody else who officially finished – whether fast or slow, but I do shout a big respect and admiration to the people listed above and all those who pushed themselves to finish despite of many things.

I must reiterate.

They ran the same distance. We all started at KM 00. They finished where everybody finished too.

They missed the cut-off, yes.

But they too deserve to celebrate. Sans the banner…sans the medal…sans the trophy…sans the RD…sans the crowd.

We are! πŸ™‚
