7 Eleven Run Highlights: Tabby’s first Run of 2018

Feb 5, 2018

7 Eleven Run Cebu

SEA Games Champion and 5X Milo Marathon Champion Mary Joy Tabal debuted for the first time since her Milo win in December In the 21K Leg of the 7-Eleven Run at Cebu. Tabal clocked 1h23.07 to launch the fastest time in the country easily. 

“[I joined] this race to overcome my fear of what happened to me last year. I still can feel the emotions that I went through after my father passed away on the eve of my big race,” said Tabal, who rested for one month before plunging back to training last January.

“But right now, I can feel that I am ready to bring back my old form to compete.”

The petite runner from Barangay Guba, Cebu City, however, admitted she felt emotional in the early part of the race.

“While running, I still [felt] the presence and memories of my father. But later during the race, my mood changed because a lot of people cheered at the sidelines and I am so happy for that,” the Southeast Asian (SEA) Games marathon gold medalist said.

Based on her assessment, Tabal believes her performance was decent, although she still also confessed that she had to improve on some aspects of her skills.

“This will be a good startup for my year. Though I didn’t have a convincing performance, I have a lot of time to improve my skills through training.”

Although she won easily over runners-up Ruffa Sorongon (1:27.57) and Aileen Tolentino (1:30.31), there was something Tabal found unusual with the race.

“What made this race challenging was that I had to wake up very early. The race started at 1 a.m. I only slept for few hours and the route was challenging [because it had] a lot of turns. The run was too early, it’s unusual to run at 1a.m.,” Tabal said.

Organizers started the race at 1 a.m. since it was held simultaneously with Manila and Davao’s races.

DAVAO CITY (MindaNews / 04 Feb) — Â A farmer and veteran runner from Malaybalay City, Bukidnon, won the 42-kilometer race in the 7-Eleven Run 2018 in Davao City early Sunday.

Laguido is a member of the Malaybalay Runners, a group that has been competing in both local and national races since 2011.

He attributed his win to self-discipline and consistency in his training.

My preparation was only every day jogging, Laguido said.

In the women’s 42K, Judelyn Miranda finished first. Vivian Avergonzado won second and Maria Theresa Basallo third.

Besides Laguido, other Bukidnon racers also emerged triumphant after taking home several medals in their respective divisions, like Christine Hallasgo, who landed the top spot, and Lalaine Patricio placed third in women’s 21K.  Emerly, Avergonzado won second in the same division. Bukidnon bet Bobby Tadlas placed second to Jerald Zabala while Jimboy Lugay placed third in 21K men.

Bukidnon runners Keenan Caburnay and Esterlita Organiza maintained group dominance in their respective divisions in the 16K race.

Caburnay topped the race, followed by Arlan Arbois and third placer Rodel Salvane in men.

While Organiza won first in women where Rosabel Pura and Jaylou Maloloy-on placed second and third, respectively. Hence the 7-Eleven Run in Davao was simultaneously held in Manila and Cebu. (Antonio L. Colina IV)
