BELIZE CITY, Mon. Feb. 23, 2015–Veteran runner Anthony “Ladies” Flores predicts he will win the upcoming half marathon which will be held on Holy Saturday.
Flores told Amandala that he will leave for Dangriga, where he will work out on the soft, sandy beach, and will run 10 miles twice per day to build his endurance and stamina, on which he will depend to win the 13.1-mile race on a hard surface.
Flores said that he is expecting tough competition from the “upstart” Mark Godoy, Sr., who is also a veteran runner, but he is confident that he will defeat him.
According to Flores, the race will be held on Holy Saturday after the Cross Country Cycling Classic event has been concluded. The half marathon will commence from BTL Park, into Princess Margaret Drive, onto Central American Boulevard, right into Cemetery Road, then onto the George Price Highway up to Mile 6, after which the runners will turn around and return back along the same route toward the finish line at BTL Park.
According to Flores, he is presently unemployed and would like a sponsor to help him get the required nutrients and other necessities for the race.
Anyone who would like to sponsor him or assist him is urged to contact him at phone number 620 – 1609.
