I got denied again to the New York City Marathon for the 2nd straight year (but I’ll try again next year! hehe). With NYC out, the slot was wide open for my 6th marathon. I was skimming through blog posts in google reader last Friday and stumbled upon the latest entry from runrio – the Milo Marathon Manila Eliminations 2011.
I continued reading, clicking the links and viewing the route maps. For some reason, I got curious when I saw the 42K map. MOA – Roxas, Buendia – BGC and back. I’ve ran in MOA, Roxas Blvd., Buendia and BGC but at different events. I don’t have any upcoming marathon and also, the last time I did Milo was back in 2008.
And it all came together. It took just less than 2 minutes for me to decide that I will do the full in this year’s Milo Marathon.
This will be my 6th marathon and 1st marathon here in the Philippines. Training starts now! See you on the road!
