The Road to the First Bataan Death March Ultra Marathon 102k

img_1803_After so many months of agony of waiting, sleepless nights of ‘race fever’, the First Bataan Death March Ultra Marathon 102km is ‘really’ at hand. Never thought before that i could finished 50k training, never thought before that i could accomplished the bataan52 test run although i had to rushed to the ER of Makati Medical Center due to heat stroke.

I thought running full marathon is more than enough for me. Now i’m pushing my self beyond the limit to run ultra marathon 102km.

I thought running 4-5hours is more than enough for me. Now i have to run more than 10hours nonstop to finish 102km run.

People say that i’m stupid or crazy. Yes, ultramarathon could be a stupid sports but it does not need a stupid runner to finish one.

Now, here i am, ready for the final countdown to the ultimate challenge with one determination, as long as i can walk, I HAVE TO FINISH THE RACE, before or beyond the 18hours cut-off time.

So help me God!
