December 2014 was my last official race. A 50-kilometer Ultramarathon, the Tagaytay to Nasugbu, and a 10-mile Trail, the Mt. Talamitam Challenge. I finished both with a respectably good time, but I didn’t pay for the registrations required. 🙂 Somebody does.
That’s how it’s been for the longest time now. I honestly cannot afford the registration fees.
So, I run on my own. 😉 Who says you have to spend so much to run? I can race on my own too. Well, technically, that wouldn’t count. What I mean to point out is that I can run at the same speed as I would on a race – on my own.
I could only reminisce when years ago, a registration fee for a race is no more than P 200.00.
I could still use P 200.00 now…for my meals, drinks and fare to run someplace. Say, fare to Imus, run to Dasma, back to Imus, fare back to home. If i would eat at Mcdonald’s, I’d still have some loose change for my P 200.00.
But it’s just me. It’s what I do.
That is the END I go to. I already have a lot of medals. I already have so much singlets. If ever I would spend on a race registration, it will surely be a long as the 100-km distance.
