Sunnysideup: I Choose to be Happy!
(is now back in Manila!)

Thank you series: My first 3k run!

I've noticed the steady increase of organized runs in Manila. Since last year I've been wanting to join and finally hubby and I got to join our first ever run last weekend, it was the Slimmerun event. This will be the first of our many runs to lose the "happy couple" and "winter" weight we've gained in China.

'The crowd gathers as we wait for the go signal!'

'In the middle of running I just had to pause and take a picture!'

I'm a newbie and this is my first try. My next goal is to join the 5k, then the 10k and finally hopefully join trekking/ marathon events. I've always had a love for active outdoor activities but before all that I'll head of to the gym as I need to get back in shape.

By the way, kudos to the Slimmersworld team for a great event. It was a great start for me and I definitely enjoyed the event - even the marketing booths ala free taste centers. :)

Looking forward to other organized runs this year! By the way, if you're interested to see schedules of running events, you can checkout, it's an online community for Filipinos.

Hello there! Na-miss ko dito!

Wow, kayang-kayang ang 3K! Good luck sa 5K at 10K. I'm sure kaya mo rin 'yan.

I've never joined any running events yet. But I have always loved walking and trekking. I hope you can try trekking up Mount Pinatubo. It's fun. Kahit dun ka muna sa 45-minute route. Then next visit mo dun na sa 2-hour route ;) Kayang-kaya mo yun kasi hindi naman difficult ang terrain.

Thanks for the encouragement Nortehanon :) I need to exercise more though kasi wala na ako sa condition hahaha!

Oo nga I should visit Mount Pinatubo but I need to look for a group again. I used to hike 5 years ago and have lost track of the group I go with. Ok yan sa akin, dati whole day trek naman kami eh :)

Thanks for the visit!
