Of all the 21K foot race that I have joined, the recently concluded Pinoy Fitness 21K Challenge is perhaps the hardest one, so far. That’s because not only did I accept the 21K challenge but I decided to accept the Sub 2XU wave wherein you have to finish the 21K distance in less than 2 hours.

I’ve never finished a 21K distance in less than two hours. The fastest finish I did before the PF 21K Challenge was 2:03. So, I was hoping I could take off those 4 minutes and at least finish the race in 1:59-2:00. But it wasnt’ easy. I run hard from gun start up to the 19th km. And during the last 1km, I thought I could make it. I tried to sprint but the last stretch wasn’t too easy to conquer. I was grasping for breath not minding the pain I’m feeling on my legs and feet. And when I crossed the finish line, I saw the time — 2:00:54!

It was a heart-breaker indeed. I wasn’t able to get the prestigious 21K sub-2X finisher’s medal. The heart-break lasted for a few seconds only. Because I know that it wasn’t an easy challenge. There’s still next year, and I’ll definitely have my revenge! 🙂

Going now to my feedback on the race itself. Well, kudos to Pinoy Fitness, especially with founder, Jeff Lo who was there and even graciously took some photos of the runners. It was well organized with ample hydration stations along the way. The race route was superb. At first I thought, it was a wrong decision to make the race route a two-route route but I was wrong. the two-loops made the race bearable for those who are running fast and trying to beat the 2 hours.

Congratulations to all the brave runners who accepted the sub-2xu wave and the sub-2:30 challenge. Rest, recover and continue running!
