Unexpected Twist and Meet-Ups at the Cosin Summer Run in Cagayan de Oro

Going to the starting line of the Cosin Summer Run in Cagayan de Oro City last Sunday (May 20, 2012), I was pretty confident that I will achieve Goal # 2 of my running goals for this year: to finish a 10K race in one hour or less with a timing chip on. After all, I already did a sub-1 hour finish (59++ minutes) in the previous week's Fiesta Run in Malaybalay City. I did not consider that an official time though, as the race did not utilized the timing chip technology in recording finish time. However, it gave me enough confidence that I could breeze my way to a sub-1 finish at the Cosin Summer Run since the Malaybalay route has lots of uphill stretches while the Cagayan de Oro route is mostly flat. My belief is that if I could do a sub-1 10K in Malaybalay, then doing it in Cagayan de Oro would be a "run in the park". Or so, I thought.

5 Unforgettable Moments During the Malaybalay Fiesta Run 2012

Before I proceed with another made-up, after run list, here's my brief review of the 1st Malaybalay Fiesta Run 2012 held last Sunday, May 13, at the Capitol Grounds:

In my own opinion, the 1st Malaybalay Fiesta Run 2012 was a well-organized race. There are adequate hydration stations (four, to be exact) which are very important since the route (Capitol Grounds to Brngy. Casisang and San Jose boundary and back) features lots of up-and-down terrain which definitely zapped out the body fluids of all runners. Kilometer and turning point markers prominently displayed were also very helpful.
