It was an early Sunday morning for us as we need to wake up at 445am! As usual, we need to pass the first hurdle, forcing Aina & Aisya to get up and prepare for the race. They took almost half an hour to get ready--nothing new here.

Dropped by at 7 Eleven to get bananas and bottled water on the way to starting line. The starting line was beside NBC Tent, the Fort, Bonafacio Global City. The race started at 6:50 and the 10K runners were flagged off first.

We ran through 26th street, went up the hill towards Lawton Avenue, passed Bayani Road, walked at Heritage Park before made a U turn near the C5 Road and ran towards Bonifacio Global City.

We clocked less that an hour and a half, not bad for our first 10K running as a family. Until the next race!!!
