_manda_run_for_cory

had a good early morning run today with the mandaluyong group run for cory. a little above 10k according to mccoy, and according to google earth daw. slow short distance (SSD), he says. we started at 7-11 at boni avenue corner EDSA, going thru boni to the rotonda, down to kalentong, back to shaw boulevard, right at pioneer street and back again to boni ave. all from 5:20am to 7:00am.

present were mccoy, jaycee, ro ann, alan, loren, doc eire (all the way from tagaytay), and me--7 total. we were a very small group compared to those in qc & makati, but it was still worth the short sleep.




j.p. rizal avenue


a heavy downpour midway added to the fun. :) used my phone for the pics, and i'm glad i didn't bring a camera.

shaw boulevard (with the rain)



the uphill at the shaw boulevard flyover with the rain & wind felt great. (naunahan daw ni doc eire si mccoy dito) :)



back at home & wondering if we'll join the 6pm run later in makati...hmmmm... :)

Nice one Bryan! Yup, I now love running in the rain! Neil and I ran this morning during a downpour, we would normally see a lot of runners, but it seemed we were the only ones on the road.
