Another run without Meeks. Sad. Anyway, I had a new running buddy with me, so it’s fine. Lol.
It was just a simple fun run… with lots of people from different participating schools. (I even saw Robi Domingo, hehehe) I totally like the singlet because it’s black (you know, hides all unwanted bulge… kidding!) and guess what? For the second time, I got a finisher’s medal at the end of the run.
I know the medal doesn’t mean that I was one of the top finishers, but for me, it meant something more. You see, being able to finish a 5-kilometer sprint from BGC to EDSA-Buendia then back again to BGC is already an achievement for us beginners. We may not be able to run as fast and as skilled as those who chose to take the 10K or 21K barefoot, but we know that we have already conquered a fairly-long distance.
(Finished another 5K… awesome!)
By the way, the freebies were fantastic. Ice cream, coffee, donuts… we even got a burlap-like backpack from Puma. Yay!
(Guys, meet Mad, my running buddy for this one )
All in all, the run was splendid. The important thing is we got to sweat out really good. The loot bags and other cool stuff were just bonuses.
(This run was organized by Greentennial.)
