Cordillera-  Cordilleran marathon queen Christabel Martes is one among the 12 Filipinos who took the top podium and dominated the Laguna Phuket Marathon Thailand last Sunday.

Christabel Martes from La Trinidad, Benguet finished third with compatriot Christine Hallasgo finishing first in the 21 kilometer run among 1,961 female runners who joined the run.



She run with  lots of distractions and it wasn't a joy run after all. "Grabe sa lusong sa lakas ng ulan at hangin," she told PNA.

Queen marathon Martes who joined the 40-49 years old category run the race with a busted shoelace behind Thai runner Natthaya Thanaronnawat who placed second.

"(There) were too many factors that distracted me in the race, two times that my shoelace was busted, that gave the advantage to the Thai runner to move ahead," Martes said.

" At the last two kilometers, sumakit right heel ko, siguro dahil na rin po sa mas malakas na kayud ko sa kanan sa luwag ng sintas," she added.

The 40 year old queen marathon is a four-time Milo Marathon national finals winner and winner of the SEAG marathon in 2001 and 2005.

The first placer 25 year old Hallasgo from Bukidnon ruled last year's 42nd National Milo Marathon Manila.



Other Filipinos who won the race are Luisa Raterta who finished fourth on the 30-39 age category and Jocelyn Elijaran who took the seventh place in the 40-49 age group.

Meanwhile, Richard Salano took the to podium while Prince Joey Lee made second and Jeorge Andrade finished fourth in the men's 21K run.
