Donna Cruz has been preparing up for her upcoming run in Southern California titled Clif Mountains 2 Beach Marathon & Half.
The event will happen on Sunday, May 29, with start line in Ojai and finish line on the long beach front of Ventura.
According to its website, one exciting feature of the race is that "18 of the first 20 miles have a net down hill of over 700 feet."
Donna trained at the San Mateo Oval with husband, Dr, Yong Larrazabal III.
On Instagram, she posted a photo, and wished her fellow Pinoy runners good luck.
Kulang sa training and sa mileage and this Sunday na yung race! bahala na. I-enjoy na lang po pag di confident na maging maganda ang time. Goodluck sakin and sa lahat ng mga Pinoy runners na sasali sa Mountains to Beach Marathon and Half Marathon. kahit not as fast as my 21k time before, basta maka finish safely, pain-free and hindi mukhang ngarag sa finish line haha! buti at naka-run pa po ako (kami ni Yong) ng 9.4k sa San Mateo oval (si Yong 15k) Sarap tumakbo pag malamig. Bigat lang sa legs kasi nag jetlag pa at pasyal pasyal din. Hayan chika lang po ng konti muna. It's 2:40 am here na at di pa makatulog but will try to sleep na din po at aga pa lakad mamaya. Gandang umaga / tanghali po sa lahat. #RunDonnaRun #runnermom #runnergirl #halfmarathoner #marathonmom #takbopamore
Her goal aside from finishing the 21K race: "...basta maka-finish safely, pain-free, and hindi mukhang ngarag sa finish line haha!"
It was in 2008 when Donna started running.
Since then, she has so far joined races in Cebu and Hong Kong.
