BDM Conversations (my BDM 160 Ultramarathon experience)

I first ran the streets of Bataan last year during the “Test Run” for the 2nd BDM 102 (CLICK ME! to read the story). As I said on that post…

  • Acknowledge the people who will greet you along the way
  • Give high fives or thumbs-up signs

Well I did those… but I forgot to mention to bring a lot of patience and humility too. Not because of the distance but because of the things you will hear from and conversations you’ll have with the people along the route.

Along Km20
Manong1: “Boss, yan na po ba yung FUN RUN?”
Me: “Oho”
Manong1: “San ang FINISH LINE?”
Me: “sa CAPAS po.”
Manong1: “Ang layooo!”

Along Km30
Manong2: “Bro, san kayo nag-simula?”
Me: “Sa Mariveles po.”
Manong2: “Ang layo ah. San ang tapos?”
Me: “sa CAPAS po.”
Manong2: “Nyaaaaaa!”

Along Km40
Kids: “Galingan nyo ha!”
Me: gave them high fives!

Along KM45
Truck Driver: “Hoy! Bilisan nyo, tanghalian na”
Me: x_X

Along Km52
Tricycle Driver: “Boss, sakay ka na para mauna.”
Me: “Patay tayo dyan…”
Tricycle Driver: “Bakit, bawal ba mandaya?”
Me: “Kelan pa po naging tama?”

Along Km55
Manong3: “Boss, san pa po kayo galing?”
Me: —-
Manong3: “Boss, san pa po kayo galing?”
Me: —-
Manong3: “Boss!!! Huuuyyyy!!!!”

Along Km65
Me: (talking to the medics) “Boss, ako na ba ang last runner?”
Medic: “Yes sir.”
Then after a few minutes, a runner passes by.
Me: “Ayos!”

To all the runners running this weekend for the 3rd BDM 102 Ultramarathon. Bring a lot of patience and humility! Good luck and God Bless you all!

This Is It!!!!
