First, I would like to thank our Almighty Father for allowing me to join and finish this race despite my physical handicaps with a “decent” time to boast and negligible injuries.
Second, I would like to personally thank my takbo.ph family for extending their support not just to me and the members of the family but also to the entire running community as a whole during yesterday’s MILO Marathon Manila Eliminations. Thank you very much guys! I really appreciate all the efforts you gave, and I’m thankful to see familiar and friendly faces along the route. The banana, boiled egg, liniments, and the cheers really helped me a lot! MILO did a great support job but you guys made it excellent!
Finally, I would like to thank MILO, the Race Organizer, and the crew behind the 34th National MILO Marathon headed by Mr. Rudy Biscocho for consistently and continuously raising the standards of local races. This was my third MILO Marathon Manila experience, my first during the 2008 Finals (10K) and last year’s Eliminations as my debut marathon, so I can safely say that MILO Marathon has gone a long way since then! Thank you MILO for all these innovations!
To my fellow runners, those that worked hard to finish their respective races with integrity (regardless of the distance), be proud of your achievements! Congratulations!
