The Road to CCC

It's been a while since I've actually updated my blog. The last post was in June for the No to Mining in Palawan support.Thru the busy days at my new work, it made running a second priority.

Well, after seriously contemplating for the past few months, I have finally decided last October 30 that I will participate in the Cebu Century Challenge now named as Century Properties Ultramarathon 2011. I've heard that some 157 special idiots will brave the roads from the Bogo Old City Hall to Plaza Independencia here in Cebu City. That's approximately 102kms from start to finish.

I can still remember the Coast to Coast Ultramarathon last May 1 wherein I braved the roads from Balamban to Cebu Capitol passing thru the dreaded hills of Cansomoroy. It was indeed painful but fun! And two days after that event, I immediately sent a message to the frontRunner publisher and organizer Jonel Mendoza that I will be running the CCC on Saturday, November 19th.

For the past five months or so, my training was not that great. Well, not even close to good. I had the chance to ran from Dumaguete to Lalaan in San Jose and back with Ate Honey Flores-Chandiramani last July. I gave in to her plan to reach her longest distance at 31kms. And she did great! As for me, I begged off to end at the 26th kilometer right at the heart of the city. That was my second longest run so far.

The simulation run from Bogo to Danao City last October went well. Except that I declared myself DNF when I reached the 42K mark. I was exhausted and dehydrated. With no proper training and mileage, I decided to stop. Well, it was a good call. That was my longest by far.

In about 34hours from this writing, I will be joining the run of my life. This will be very special as this is my Birthday Run and I dedicate this run especially to Agatha, to Mika and the rest my family.

More dedications will be announced once I cross the finish line. :-)

Well, this is it! There is no turning back! The road to CCC may be hard but I will take it easy. Something great will happen at the finish line! wooot!


  1. Goodluck sir Katol! May the force be with you! :)
