Why did you decide to join the contest?
How did you prepare for the race?
“First of all, we planned to get a good night's sleep to start it off, take note, we say planned because we didn't get a wink of sleep before the race. We tried to anticipate what we would be up against but being prepared for the unknown is an exercise in futility. So all we could was take ourselves to the event, and take things as they go”.
What were the most memorable challenges of the race?
“The most memorable would have to be part involving the wakeboard park, not only did we have a lot of fun learning how to kneeboard but it was there that we managed to move to the 3rd spot in the race”.
The first was when we had to finish everything laid in front of us from a large bowl of bulalo to a platter of chopsuey, 4 cups of rice and a liter of coke. This might sound like a doable meal... but you have to consider that prior to this challenge we were consistently given water to "rehydrate" ourselves which we probably drank in liters prior to our meal.
Of course, what kept us going was our promise that we would finish the race regardless of our place”.
What do you think was your strategy/”secret weapon” in winning the race?
How did you feel upon winning the contest?
"Overwhelmed because we really didn't expect to win, and at the same time relieved because we could finally let our hair down and just enjoy the rest of the day”.
“All we can say is have fun, don't take the race too seriously because you'll never know what kind of challenges are going to be thrown at you... one moment you might be on top, the next you're trailing the race leaders. And finally, regardless of what place you finish, the one thing you're guaranteed to win will be the hearts and minds of your fellow competitors, so make the most of it”.
