A couple of minutes later, we finally set foot on Remy Field. The scene that greeted me left me in awe. This would be my first time to start a race in a track oval with packed bleachers. Wifey knew that merely describing the entire scene in words would not do it justice, so she went trigger-happy on her point-and-shoot and started clicking away.
Off-topic, wifey underwent a key moment in life and had her picture taken with THE Chris Tiu. Notice how oblivious she was of the other equally-famous Smart Gilas players in the background (i.e., Dylan Ababou, Andy Barroca, Jayvee Casio).
This is supposed to be a feel-good post, so I won't tell you about how disorganized and how delayed the start of the race was. At 6 a.m., the gun finally went off for all runners (i.e., 21k, 10k, 5k, and 3k). At last, we were off.
This would have been a great shot, but the genius in the foreground ruined everything. I decided to post this anyway, since this is the only photo wifey was able to take as I was about the cross the finish line.
