T h e resilience of the Filipino is something to be proud of – a trait that truly shows at the National Milo Marathon held last July 19 at Capitol Drive, San Jose Balanga City.

    As stated in the Milo website, since 1974, generations have chosen to move forward and test themselves in what is now known as the biggest and grandest running event nationwide.

    At the blast of the whistle, it was a sea of thousand heads but eventually one person emerged the leader and the winner.

    T e n e j e r o E l e m e n t a r y participants may not be on the top but TES have something to be proud of.

    Marc L i x Mangayao and Charity Fe Lamoste, both grade six pupils, emerged as the 10th and 3rd placer in the said marathon.

    Mangayao said before the race start, he did some stretching and warm ups to condition his body.

    “It was tiring but fulfilling,” he added.

    “I did not expect to win, I just run up to the finish line and was surprised to know that I bagged the third place,” Lamoste said.
