My PR 5K at the Kapamilya Run in Cagayan de Oro City

I joined ABS-CBN's Kapamilya Run in Cagayan de Oro City last Sunday, February 26, 2012 with only one goal in mind: to finish 5K in less than 30 minutes. Two blog posts ago, I wrote about my running goals after finishing my first marathon (42 K) in Cebu early this year. Goal # 1 on that list is to finish 5K in less than half hour. While I believe I have achieved sub-30 in two local fun runs in Bukidnon, I could not proclaim the "validity" of my time. On the first run, I forgot to switch on my digital watch timer during the start while on the second run, I completely forgot to wear it! Hahaha!
