Pacing for Earth Run
I wasn't aware of the upcoming Earth Run until I walked inside R.O.X. and saw people clamoring for a red gorgeous singlet made by Boon equipment for only 200pesos. I've had so many running singlets, and this one stands out. The Earth Run singlet was so gorgeous, I wouldn't be surprised if people registered only to get a hand of the singlet. I registered myself for the 16K and my wife for the 5K (which she intends to change to 10K after experiencing the TNF 100). I got hold of the blue singlet, while my wife got the red singlet.
This morning, I went to our usual tambayan where I saw kuya Melvin who asked me if I could pace during the Earth Run in exchange for a running singlet.
I said yes to get a red one of my size. Now I'll have blue and red Earth Run singlets. :)
I'll be pacing 5min/km for the 16K category. A 1 hour and 20 minutes work for a free nice red singlet and to shave 1000+ calories from the double Whopper I ate last weekend.
Oh, and if I'm lucky enough to be one of the top 300 to finish 16K I can get the Earth run shirt:
