I know. Another way late race report.
What can I say? To many things on my plate, not enough time to eat!
Hehe, enough with the excuses.
One week removed from WRT and still will tired legs, I found myself on a starting line again. This time for a far shorter race, the Adult Sprint at the Asian Duathlon Championships.
I was in Subic primarily to support my friends and 1st time duathletes, Chin, Paolo(Jazz), and Carlos(Engineer), they were all regular customers of the shop who became regular run mates and friends.

Finally! After spending most of last week after the preparing for our shop opening on Saturday then racing in Subic on Sunday (more on that in a following post), plus my regular work and MBA studies, this is a only free time I find to myself to buckle down and write this post!

In lieu of registration fees, donations will be collected for the distance you will run. This is not a race so there will be no souvenir t-shirts, no swag bags, no finishers medals and no prize money.
There will be no water stations since we believe that water must be given to those who need it most: victims of Ondoy. Needless to say, it will be KKB (kanya kanyang bote or kanya kanyang belt).
A registered participant will receive a rescue runners race bib, which the runner can wear during the race and in sustaining events currently being planned for the entire month of October to raise funds for rehabilitation.
The race is open to everyone. Participants are encouraged to collect pledges from their family or friends who cannot make it to the event. All proceeds will be donated to the Philippine National Red Cross for the Typhoon Ketsana (Ondoy) victims.
Registration starts October 5 at the following venues:
- The SecondWind Running Store, Maginhawa St., UP Village, Diliman, Quezon City
- Recreational Outdoor eXchange, ROX, Bonifacio High Street, Taguig City
- All Terra Bike Shop, Club 650, Libis, Quezon City
- On site registration starting 5:30 a.m.
Assembly is 5:30 a.m. and the race starts at 6:30 a.m.

Corporate: P5,000 for 20 runners
Volunteers are needed for road marshals and secretariat. If you are interested, please contact 0917-8374204, 216-8521 or email email@example.com.

Congrats to to Mikey! 1st time duathlete! Good job dude!
As for me, 2 flat tires was all I had to show for the day. Hay... if there's anything you can't practice for its mechanical failures and stupidity.
Well, let me explain. After a conservative-ish 1st run, I was ready and excited to get on the bike. I felt my bike time really sucked the 1st time I did this, so I was out for vindication. I took my time in transition, wore my gloves, strapped my shoes and helmet on properly, sucked my GU, hydrated and off I went!
I had barely gone 1 kilometer, you know, just getting comfy, getting into a rhythm, I had barely touched the aerobar when bam... psssssssssssshhhh!
Oh shit! I thought, I hope that sound coming from the person right beside me...
But I knew that wasn't the case!
Fine! Fuck! I'll pull over and change it as fast as I can.
