Last July 11, 2017 I join triathlon with a cause for this time. Our registration fee for this event is 100% goes to the CHD kids patients in Cebu City. Congenital Heart Disease/Defect kids needs operation to prolong life. Thanks to Dr. Robert “Obet” Capatoy my team mate in TriZur (Triathlon Zamboanga Del Sur) who sponsor my registration fee.
Doc Obet told me lets join this event to help kids with CHD and i can also experience the swim course in Mactan Newton Beach beside the Shangrila beach resort which is the swim course area for the upcoming IRONMAN 70.3 Philippines.
IRONMAN Philippines in Cebu is the most awaited triathlon event for all triathletes in country because they said its a Disneyland triathlon destination and a very festive event.

I call it the battle of Mactan in Cobra IRONMAN 70.3 Philippines.
I under estimate this race. I told myself that this is an endurance race and yes i have it in my body system but i have no proper training and it turns out i got a cut off time during the 90km bike leg and turns to DNF (did not finish)
Thank God i survive the 1.9km struggling swim. According to the report there are more than 100 participants did not survive for the 70 minutes cut of time for 1.9km swim due to sea current.
