Have I Got a Long Way to Run?

>> Thursday, October 22, 2009

Not really. Just 5K.

If you knew me in person, you'd get from first glance that I don't run. In fact, I hardly do much workouts, and I don't have any gym membership anywhere. The last time I ran was last year, at a Men's Health Miracle Run, and before that was a month-long class in Muay Thai Kickboxing back in '06. All the other days, sports were the last thing on my mind.

J, Me, Tubbs and C at The Fort. If you were wondering, I didn't finish the 10K.
Shortly after we passed by a station, a guard said over the radio
"The tail of the run just passed by." [in Filipino] and that well, inspired us
more to just walk. Ha!

However,  when things I least like pave a way for me to learn [or at least learn to like] things, especially for a cause, I let go of inhibitions and my pride and my vanities of being afraid to look stupid. Thus I am joining the Philippine International Marathon: Run for Pasig River, happening on November 8, 2009.

Especially since the company I work for has committed to helping out ABS-CBN Foundation in rehabilitating Pasig River, it is only imperative that we help out, in whatever way we can. Besides, I can fake attempting to be healthy, too!

Are you fond of running? If yes, will you be joining this run?
I'm not but I'm fond of helping out a cause!

Happy Thursday, everyone!

@Lei: I can't even run decently, haha! I'm just faking being athletic and healthy, just for a cause :D Thanks for the rah rah :)

@LOLanne: Wow, thank you :) I usually take the backseat, too and just donate but since our company is participating, there are lots of us so I'm sure it'll be fun :)
