Registering for the Trail Run
Originally, we were planning to go to Marinduque on the weekend of September 12, 2010 but when we heard that TNF Thrill of the Trail will be in Bohol, I had doubts on the Marinduque trip. Then a rumor came out that the route will be including the Chocolate Hills and they said it was a Chocolate Hills Challenge, Marinduque quickly became a second priority and we signed up for the TNF Thrill of the Trail.
I’ve always dreamt of climbing the Chocolate Hills and since I knew that it was a protected area, I knew that my dream was close to impossible. I was actually expecting that the route was going up the Chocolate Hills.
When TNF Megamall texted me that the race packets can be picked up, I excitedly went to the store, gave my receipt, took my race packet and viewed the map. NOOOO!!! The race route was not going up the Chocolate Hills. I already had a plane ticket to Bohol, there’s no turning back now even if my dream was not going to come true.
I flew to Bohol, rode a 3 hours bus provided by the organizer and I was now in front of the starting line.
My goal was simple, run and take pictures. No worrying about the time. For me it was a 11km trail fun run. 😀
Guess what the 11km trail fun run had in store for me?
