Fun Run!

It was my first fun run ever! Joined the HSBC 135 Fun Run in Davao last November 6, 2010.  It was a gloomy start as the sky was weeping early in the day.  It eventually gave way though to the hundreds of enthusiasts who just couldn't be stopped.  Someone must have offered it a giant Kleenex.  I joined the 5 kilometer event and still managed to keep it FUN (get it?) despite some people who tried to pass me only to stop right in front of my run path (more like jogging really).  hehehe (^o^)v Surprised myself as well when I finished in 30'46"! (personal timer not the official one).  I thought it would take me around 45 minutes.        

I have to admit, the professional runners who were already on their way back to the start/finish even when I just passed the 1.5km mark was motivating yet demotivating as well.

The challenge would be to finish a FULL MARATHON (42 km.)!  But the penultimate goal would be to finish the IRON MAN! hahaha. *good luck my toes, my knees, my shoulder, my head!*

*Thank you the organizers (HSBC with FishTank Productions) for a wonderful event.
*Thank you BR for taking my picture.

Oh! Before I forget! Thank you Ria Jose of for sponsoring me.  You've not only made the SOS Children beneficiaries happy but this child as well ^^ Sa uulitin.
