The story behind the success of my first ever 80K ultra-marathon.

This Festival features sports, trade fairs and cultural events giving the people of Albay a chance to showcase their talents, promote local products and to show the world the beauty that Albay promotes - Tourism.

Every Magayon and Oragon Runners has different insights about Mayon 360, for me as DiwataNgBicolandia I have my own story running around Mayon. 

1. Mentally and Physically Ready.

One month before the race Diwata has own version of ritual for training, a two constitutive Sunday LSD plus 5k - 6k run every other day. "Natutulog ako na nakataas ang dalawang paa." Diwata keep her mind at ease and focus on her training, she usually talk to positive attitude people. 

2. Never think about Failure.

"Ayoko mag-isip ng hindi maganda kasi baka yun pa maging rason para di ko matapos yung race." Instead told myself Ang Ganda ko kaya kailangan ko matapos ang race. lels

Few meters away to Km 40

3. Enjoy the Route and feel the warm welcome of Oragons.

Mga oragon na sinasabi, very accomodating. Halos lahat ng Station nakatawa ang mga Oragon at nagcheer talaga sila sa lahat ng runners. I also love the route very challenging, dagdag hirap ang init sa buong maghapon pero sulit ang Ganda ng Mayon. #MabalosBicolandia

Libreng kape plus baraylehan nin sarong banggi at Km 20

Km 50

4. Run with your heart.

Ultra is always a battle of yourself among others, so listen to your body and most specially to your heart. "Madalas ako maiwan, madalas rin ako iniiwan kaya ngayon natuto na ko. Tumatakbo ako galing sa PUSO, para mahanap ang gusto ng puso ko - Kaligayahan sa pagtakbo."

5. Relax and Have Fun.

Assuming that you are well prepared and trained of this kind of race regardless to your goal, you can do this point relaxing and enjoy. Stop thinking about the long route, instead you keep yourself positive and everything falls into happiness. 

6. Take your best shot at the Finish Line

Signature "Diwata Pose" almost like Victoria.

7. Give Thanks

Magpasalamat sa gabos na tawo lalong-lalo na sa orgullo kan kabikolan sa pamamayo nin maustik na Gobernandor Joey Sarte Salceda kakuyog an saiyang kakuruyogan sa konseho, JCI Legaspi, sa mga liga nin barangay asin sa gabos na bikolnon.
