UP Gig Run - 2008

The UP Gig Run was held  last February 4 at the Diliman  campus and organized by the UP Mountaineers Environmental Committee (UP MENCOM). I love running near the Sunken Garden area because there's tons of trees, food  stalls and pretty people. Hehehe! It was a well-organized affair. The markers can easily be seen and water stations were adequately placed. Congrats UP MENCOM! :)




I placed 60th out of 148 female runners in the 5KM division. Ahehehe..not bad for a novice like me. My time was about 55 minutes something. My companions Mau, Olay and Glee also got very good results. Hope I can do better in my next run.


We ate the famous tapsilog at Rodic's after the race which made it an extra fun affair. I don't actually like tapsilog but if it's from Rodic's, I can eat it any time!
