I could still feel the adrenalin rush…the night before the big day, I could not sleep well. Vivid images of people excitedly lining up and getting ready for the race flashed before my eyes. It’s a weird feeling of seeing me among them preparing to run as we all wait for the starting shot to ring. I woke up four times looking at my watch just to be sure that I’ll not be late with the 5 o’clock activity I’m attending. I’m talking about my first entry to a fun run. This was last June 17, a Sunday as the world celebrated Father’s day.
I registered and participated the 5K run and it was exhilarating! Just wearing the race jersey, the race bib with an electronic timing device gave me a sense of personal fulfillment as a health buff. I do regular work out on Mountain biking throughout the city but this was my first to attend such an event as a marathon runner.
For sure this is not my last time to do it as I already registered for the next fun run hosted by the Philippine Air Force Reserve this coming July 1 in a 10K run and looking forward to do it again on July 8 and August 18! Care to join me? Just do it! It would surely be fun, fun, fun!
