My 2012 Cobra Ironman 70.3 medal broke!

Saturday before Tri United 2, I was searching for my Garmin’s ANT stick so I could transfer all past data as my watch’s memory was close to filled up. But since it was a last minute decision and I was rushing to finish other items on my pre race checklist, I accidentally dropped the box where my Cobra Ironman 70.3’s medal was kept and carefully wrapped. I cursed myself while my heart crashed when I saw the really hard earned medal broke into pieces!


My broken medal broke my heart too! 🙁


So, I had to wrap everything again, in the same soft white towel and thought “I really have to finish this year’s Cobra so I can have a finishers medal to keep!” The broken medal infact became my motivation to finish well the following day’s Tri United 2, a practice race for Cobra Ironman 70.3.

When registration opened last December, slots have been sold out in just 4 days! Yes, that is a proof of how exciting the event will be on August 4, 2013! Together with almost 2,000 registrants and an expected 100,000+ spectators from our cheerful Cebuanos to support groups of local and foreign participants, I am excited and looking forward to Cobra Ironman 70.3’s fifth race in the Philippines!

But of course I look forward especially to earning the finishers medal designed by world renowned Kenneth Cobunpue!


This will be mine! Positive…positiive…positive!

Pinay Ironmom is a typical mom who wakes up before 6 am to prepare my 3 children for school. After this, I make my husband coffee, similar to the Nescafe commercial on TV of a couple's typical morning. Work is normally a tour of Northern or Southern Luzon to inspect projects we are building, checking quality of designs or preparation of presentations to prospective clients. My schedule is flexible luckily, I can squeeze in hearty lunches with my favorite lunchmate and training early in the afternoon or right after business hours. Weekends are bike days on Saturdays at MOA or Daang Reyna and Sunday is my me time - my long run day. Oh warm ups and stretchings are trips to the grocery, cool down is hearing mass and giving thanks to God for a wonderful week. This is ME :)
