Sofitel Manila Half-Marathon secures slot as anticipated one

Sofitel Manila Half- Marathon last Sunday (August 17, 2014) marks a great experience in my passion of running. And this event has probably secured a slot to be one the most anticipated events in the running community. If this race pushes through to do another cycle of running event into a bigger next year I would definitely love to keep an eye on this event. 😉

In the first successful event of Sofitel Manila Half-Marathon, I would suppose that it was a perfect run for me after three weeks off on the road. Even I got in at the event five minutes before the gun start, it hurried me to deposit my stuffs into the baggage counter and headed to the starting line as tight as possible, despite of that rushing I still manage to enjoy the entire event.

And so, I’ll never expect a beating of PR as I told myself after signing up in 42.195k distance for the upcoming Run United Philippine Marathon all of the events encounter along the way will be part of my build up and preparation as added into my daily mileages. I will treat all respective races as easy pace which objective is to finish the race regardless how good or bad my personal time is.

Going along to my personal experience in Sofitel Manila Half-Marathon it droves beyond my expectations as I anticipated from the organizer, Run Rio. Not to cite their success in the previous events the commitment in meeting the expectations of runners are excellentCounting as well the race owner is experienced as one of the top luxury hotels in the Philippines – the Sofitel Manila. As one of the running enthusiasts living in Metro Manila I could state that I’m rather conversant with some portions of the race locations. Same as this, SM Mall of Asia situated the starting/finish line and which most of the event held, Diosdado – CCP and the stretch of Roxas Boulevard never be not present if we are verbalizing about a long distance runs in Manila.

These tandems of race route have been used in most races no matter whom or how big the organizer is. Aside from race routes where most runners are familiar, I would wish to bring up the best section of the race that contributed to a successful outcome.

Assembly Area – As we had a bun in the oven, the potency of their concept has been utilized in past races which I really appreciate especially the baggage counters.

Gun Start TIme – As usual, set out at the precise time and strictly implemented the fifteen minute grace period after the gun start for the late runners, beyond that allocated time no participants allowed to run – for safety reasons.

Mizuno Wave Rider 17

Feeling’ grateful for the reason that I’m one of the fortunate bloggers who have been given the opportunity to be involved in Mizuno Digital Network two weeks ago. It’s a great chance to better meet the renowned longest running shoe brand over the years of being the most choice among athletes of all levels. During our one and half hour one on one discussion, I just realize that this brand marks on athlete for a long time. And, I was able to see the fast innovation of running shoes as stated in the attached video below.

Know the Japanese Authentic Innovation:

Athletes, reserve a room for the latest ride of Mizuno, the Wave Rider 17 – looks exciting and very much appealing to have one. And fortunately, it was a big surprise when Mikee (Media and Public Relations Officer) took a pair of Wave Rider 17 to be able to experience the ride! Definitely, my first Mizuno shoes which I never been tried and never been ridden, but included in my bucket list. New shoes, gadgets or accessories will hit you more motivated, isn’t it? 😀 So, on the next day I’m quite excited to ride and I came up with my own evaluation to the shoe.
