A Passion to Run – Saving Sights 5km

Posted by on Dec 15, 2009 in Advocacy, Health, Sports | 12 comments

This was the first Running event I have ever had.  5km is the longest run I’ve ever had so far.  It was more tiring than I thought.  After 1km, I swear I said I won’t make it…

I don’t know but I sill continued to run.  With every step I make, I hum a song in my mind to keep up with rhythm. :P  When I was approching the finish line I’m like “This is it… This is it… FINALLY!!”

I made it in 34 minutes!  Which is such an achievement for me!  Imagine!  I ran the entire Bonifacio Circle! in 34 freakin minutes and I expected to be done by 45 minutes pa 😀

I’m not sure if I am part of the top 10 runners in girls but I am just so happy that for my first time (I don’t jog at all, I swim) I made it in a decent time :P  Miche was very very good at it!  She never stopped running!  WOW for her!

Anyway, after that, as if running was not enough yet, Vince and I still roamed the Bonifacio Circle with our longboard skateboards.
