CIHM – Half The Experience, One Hundred Percent Enjoyment

The Corregidor International Half-Marathon (CIHM) race held last Saturday was a special treat for first-timer to the island like me. Though I ran (walk) the shorter distance which is 10K, the beautiful scenery, fresh air and the fun of taking pictures along the route are some of the things I really enjoyed there. If only I can run with a dslr, I have better shots of the ruins that can be found in this island fortress. I used the camera of my phone instead, so bear with the quality of photos I included in here.

Going to the island is more than an hour of ferry boat ride by Sun Cruises. Upon arrival at the pier; there are ‘tranvias’ that fetched us near the starting line. That day the weather was perfect, it was 8 o’clock in the morning with an overcast sky. Trees cover the start area up to a few dozen meters along the road and most of the length of the course. The organizers welcomed us, most especially Mr. Edward Kho, the race director and Atty. Raymund Martelino and while we waited for the gun start, the program hosts entertained the runners with their repertoire of jokes that even foreign participants had enjoyed.

The long uphill is a real challenge to those who had already experienced running in Tagaytay Midlands or Timberland in San Mateo, Rizal. If you are an obese like me :), you will feel a lot heavier running that route, making it difficult to speed up or sustain a decent pace. On the contrary, I felt pain on my right knee whenever I slowed down or try to walk downhill going to the finish line. The special treats:  cold sponges, jello, cranberry sweets, ready-to-pop bananas in the water stations and roses for lady 21k finishers, not to mention the sumptuous lunch buffet!

Damn, I guess I already injured my knee ‘coz up to now I am still labouring the pain; medicines did a little to alleviate it, aggravated by participating another race last Sunday. 🙂
