Yay! And so I joined the bandwagon of running! Last Saturday I ran my first 5km in Pinay In Action 2010. It’s an all-women-run held annually for five years now to celebrate women’s month. Proceeds of the event will support advocacies against Breast and Cervical Cancer, and Violence Against Women and Children. Refer to the poster above for more details =)
I went to the event with my friend Kaye, she picked me up on my place around 4:30am and we headed straight to SM Mall of Asia. We were quite early so we took our time to prepare for the run — Kaye was stretching and stuff like that, I was just sitting there like a bum haha
And here’s the race map:
And of course, after the race, the photo opps with Senator Pia Cayetano (so I will have something to blog about hahaha)
Also, I’ve noticed that most winners of the 5km and 10km are young girls. Kewl. =)
After the 5k run in the morning, I went to the gym and I had a full workout. That sounds overkill, I know. But my fitness instructor said I’m gaining weight I should not gain =| So he made me a new program I have to follow religiously. And yeah, I have to refrain from eating sweets from now on. =| Amf unwanted fats.
