I Conquered the Nike+ Human Race!

Achi Michelle, Tiff, and I completed the Nike+ Human Race earlier today which started at McKinley Hill in the Fort. At exactly 6am, the race begun. I was 30 seconds late, but it was all good -- I still caught up with them. After a while, Achi Michelle went ahead of us, while Tiff and I, catching up with each others' pace, stuck together until the end.

From McKinley Hill, we passed along the Army Headquarters, through and around the Heritage Park, and back to McKinley Hill for the finish.

And so, after 1 hour and 22 minutes (according to the logs), I conquered my first ever 10 kilometer run! Woohoo! I'm so happy and proud of myself. The run really gave this certain "high" -- runners high or whatever you may want to call it -- it was surely pure of awesomeness :)

Right after the race, we synced our Nike+ Sportsband in the available laptops around the finish area. After that, we got our claim numbers for the Nike band. *See Red Nike Band (with metal design on the middle) in the next photo.

One thing that we noticed that this event has a lot of sponsors and freebees -- which is very good.

I commend the organizers, Coach Rio, for a very well planned route and executed run! Surely this is one of the races I will remember forever. Until my next run; kitakits!

P.S. Here are our race-logs from Nike+ Human Race Results -- I'm 234/300 (total). For me, it's not bad; it only poses as a challenge for me to do better in the next races.

*First 2 photos are from and by Achi Michelle
