Come again?

There are more than two sides of a story.

My thoughts:

  1. Put more than a thousand people in one place + sponsors/vendors = TRASH. I don't have to be in a running event to expect that. I'm sure when the EDSA revolution was held (several times) there was the same predicament.
  2. Not all of them are "nature lovers" they would've planted a tree instead or cleaned up a portion of the city. Don't we have marathons almost every single week and for every time there is a monetary humanitarian reason to do so. It's like the new "bar" to be seen. 
  3. Why the running fad became so popularly expensive I do not know. The roads have been there ever since. No need for some fancy shirt even.
  4. Hydration is important. Paper cups might be more practical. I hope they just placed trash bins strategically. Water bottles? Nah. I'm sure it'll be uncomfortable running with a jug. Doesn't look good on the photovendo too. People stopping for a refill would only consume more minutes in their stats. 
  5. Douse runners with a water pump? Sounds fun AND sexy. Haha! But wouldn't that cause water spoilage and slippery roads won't be safe. 
  6. Smoky mountain and Payatas for venues? I don't think that'll be sanitary or safe. 
  7. So you really wanna be an Earth hero by running? Do that daily on your way to school or work.
