At the same weekend that six 83neans were tackling the Lake Bato Ultra, our classmate Jun "Bitoy" Lorico was gunning for his third full marathon.
This was the 2013 Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore. His first was the 2012 SCMS (http://www.bicolanopenguin.blogspot.com/2012/12/scms-ang-pagmumulat-ni-bitoy.html)and his second was the Sundown Marathon last May 31. This time, with a bit more wisdom in his running, our batch David conquered this big marathon with a better finishing time.
At 6 hours and 20 mins, Bitoy was able to shave off 15 minutes from his 2012 SCMS time. He ran with a purpose on that 1st day of December in Singapore and it showed.
Impressive and inspiring. I need to have a sit down with my LG-4 classmate to find more about his ingredients for running success.
Congratulations, Bitoy, on your 3rd full marathon. An exciting lady by the name of Ultra beckons this 2014.
Once you go long, your running goes strong.
