My Bloody First Ultramarathon Story

1:35:00 AM



There are times that you feel like quiting...that you feel that you need to settle and not anymore pursue. Because of  pains...of wounds...it seems that you need to stop!

This said feelings happened to me when I took my very first #ultramarathon, the 52km. Ninoy Aquino Day Ultramarathon in Tarlac, Pampanga last August 23, 2015.

Since this was my very first ultra, my first longest distance in a run (take note, nauna pa akong nag-ultra kesa mag-full marathon), damang-dama ko ung pananakit ng paa ko (added to the fact na puro uphills and downhills ang ruta). Dahil masakit na nga siya, hinubad ko 'ung sapatos ko at nag-tsinelas nalang ako on my last 12 kilometers. 'Nung una masarap na sa pakiramdam kase wala na 'ung bigat ng sapatos. Pero habang tumatagal, habang tinatakbo ko na 'ung huling labindalawang kilometro, pahapdi siya ng pahapdi... unti-unti, kumikilot na 'ung ibabaw ng talampakan ko! Until I saw the bloods flowing from my feet!

Sinugatan pala ng tsinelas 'ung dalawang paa ko! Kabilaan may sugat, kitang-kita ko 'ung pag-agos ng dugo! Ang kirot, ang hapdi! Naulanan pa at naarawan! I really want to stop. Gusto ko na sanang tumigil at ihinto 'ung kahibangan ko. Pero sabi ko sa sarili ko, first ultra ko to, record-breaking pa kase I jumped from half-marathon to ultramarathon. So why should I stop?!

Therefore, I pursue...I pushed myself to the limit...I did not stop...I didn't settle! Tuloy ang laban! Kahit lumakad ako...kahit gumapang ako...tatapusin ko ito!!!

And yes, I beat it! Kinaya kong matapos at makarating sa finish line maaga pa sa cut-off na 10 hours. Ang sarap sa pakiramdam!   Mainit na salubong ang tinanggap ko mula sa mga ka-team ko at sa mga taong sumuporta sa akin! Though I was in pain and wounded...I still managed my first ultra strong pa din and kicking!

Di ko talaga malilimutan ang napakasakit at napakasarap na experience na'to sa running history ko. Hindi ako sumuko...nagpatuloy ako...lumaban ako! At sa huli, nakuha ko ang tagumpay na hinahangad ng marami!

And because of this painful experience that didn't stop me, look at me now... a very successful and a certified ultramarathoner!

As of this day, I now have 8 trophies which correspond to the 8 ultramarathons that I have conquered. Hope that this one of my running stories serve as inspiration to the runners. They should not stop, pursue, and push themselves to the limit. (Runner Rocky)
