Rudy Project Triathlon 2012

Rudy Project Triathlon
Republic Wakepark, Sta. Rosa City
900m-30k-8k --> turned to duathlon 6k-30k-3k

Upon racking up my bike and having my goggles on my neck a marshal told me to wear my running shoes... huh?  As it turned out it's going to be a duathlon since the water is not yet filled to capacity. I saw the top duathletes getting warmed up, not for the swim of course. I also heard a team near my van spoke in Visaya, hope they didn't fly over here just to experience a triathlon. For some reason the line for claiming the timing chip was too long and  I was lucky to get mine yesterday. I think it caused the delay of the gun start. 

Just across where I parked were these 2 ladies accompanying their BFs

Racking up the bike after getting lost by 8K... where were the marshals when you need one

And the winner is... luckily a triathlete not a duathlete

Lots of prizes for the Q and A winners ... I could have won something  if not for being too busy with my food stub as I was near the stage when Monica asked a Q... hays

adidas King Of The Road 2012

September 30, 2012
Bonifacio Global City
16.8K Run

It was a little bit too early for me, I almost arrived late and went to the back of the starting line as it was already packed with runners.  Luckily I spotted a couple who were going to the front slicing the crowd with reckless abandon, I just tailed them like a car tailing an ambulance and ended near the front.  After a pre race warm up led by coach Ani De Leon a countdown to gunstart followed then we're off to the first corner.

I joined this race as scheduled in my White Rock Triathlon plan (October 27, 2012).  To tell you the truth this was my first long run.  As I don't do long runs during workouts my previous longest run was a 60 minute 12K.  My target time was 1:20 but luckily I finished with a time of 1 hour and 17 minutes - 1:17:09 to be exact.  Yehey!  With still 1 month before my jogging anniversary I felt very satisfied with my time.

Hydration Stations:  Unlike multisports races, fun runs have fewer hydration stations and this one was no exception but it was relatively okay and there were bananas on some stations.

Route:  Starting near the front the route was not crowded.  The different distances merged only near the finish line.  Kalayaan flyover was a welcome challenge.

Cheering:  There were cheerers on some parts of the route, even Jollibee mascot went to cheer.

Celebrity:  Not sure but here goes.. Karylle, Erwan and Solen Heusaf, Spongecola band member, Michelle Madrigal.

Traffic Management:  From my point of view it was okay.

Kilometer Markers:  There were markers almost at every kilometer but some were distinctly way off the mark.  Time gaps were placed at kilometer 5 and 10.

Marshals:  There were enough at every key areas.

Singlet:  Excellent: adidas brand

Medal:  Excellent

Freebies:  Vitamins, medicines, canned tuna, deodorant, multisport source book.  Photobooth picture.

Injuries:  A nasty blister on my left foot, and my right calf hurts so much. These injuries proved costly to my triathlon training as I have races on October 7 and October 27.  I'll be racing Rudy Project Triathlon without practice as I have to rest and hope that my foot and calf will be ready for a short tri.

The Bad:  In the results page they didn't list my name correctly and my age was wrong - Peterson sounds too far from Neil don't ya think?
