The North Face 100 Philippines 2015 #TNF100PH2015

18.5K of the 22K category, the Marshall asked me if I can still finish the race after having a bad case of cramps on my calves. Of course, it’s just 3.5 kilometers to go. Adversity is what makes #TNF100PH2015 among the toughest and challenging test of endurance for hardcore runners. I witnessed the difficulties of the 50K and 100K runners struggle with the altitude, terrain, heat and the unfamiliarity of the race course in our media rounds. Hats off to those who came to break all boundaries regardless of the finish as challenging your personal limits is a victory in itself. For me, I’m just glad to see myself back in the finish line after more than 2 weeks in sickbay. #TheNorthFace Continue reading »
