_On a good Sunday
morning, the first in 2010, we gather together in Indahag for
the third club run and the first one in 2010.
Cardo and other club-members were early, so we were able to
prepare in time for the scheduled start time at seven AM.
_Accidentally, while we were preparing and waiting for more
contestants to arrive, we were able to watch a 12 km run from
PNP trainees with 10 kg extra in their backpacks and a rifle to carry.
At our start/finish location the trainees were also refreshed
with a shower of water over their heads if they liked.

We had to go up hill for the first 500 meter and down

because most of the youngsters returned now at the 1500 distance
mark, so they ran only 3 km.
Well, every time we learn and next time I will make sure that
everybody has a clear vision about the track to run!
_The 10 km winner Mr. Neil Catiil was extremely fast and
for sure he ran exactly 10 kilometers.
After him were finishing 2 and 3, the Oro Sunday runners Joven
_Tree contestants were doing 5 km, I missed the time from
youngster Bryan Alarcon.
Alan Joy Castillon was running under the guidance of her Lolo
Ricardo Fabe the club president.
_Runners who stopped at 3.9 kilometer were intending to
run for 5 km. but stopped at the 10.000 meter finish line while
they had 1100 meters more to go, up and down hill.
_Seven youngsters were nicely finishing after 3 km within
experience and lets hope we will have more contestants the next
time during our cross country run in Gusa, again in a safe and
Before we start we will explore the track all together to make
it clear to the runners.
