Run With Me: But No One Did For 10k LOL

“This year, the Run With Me charity run will be opened to the public with three categories of 5K, 10K, and 21K distances. As that of last year, the participants will be divided into teams to be led by celebrity couples Troy Montero and Aubrey Miles; and Ali and Cristine Reyes-Kathibi; with theatre actor Gian Magdangal; and film and television actress Meg Imperial running for the benefit of the Children of Resorts World Manila (COR) Foundation.

The team with the fastest time based on their collective scores per distance will be declared the winner of the race.”

I don’t know whose team I joined but I picked red!

I had hoped to run an easy tune up 10k before the upcoming Spartan Sprint in Manila. (Spoiler alert: Spartan Spring got postponed by a week!) I had never run in/near BGC before so this was gonna be different.

With Run Rio, I find their events quite well organized. Except for the parking situation. I mean, for all 3 Run Rio events I’ve been to, it’s just been the parking situation that just stuck out like a sore thumb. Everything else, they’re pros.

I realized that it’s hard to take photos of road races (while racing) because it’s literally a road. With people running. Not as scenic as the mountains but hey, here’s some Fitbit data anyway!

Tomorrow’s Spartan Sprint in Manila has been postponed to the following Saturday but my friends and I will be participating in the first ever Spartan Typhoon Heat! I believe it’s usually called a Hurricane Heat but is Southeast Asia, hurricanes are known as typhoon so here we are.

If you’re gonna be at Spartan Ph’s Typhoon Heat tomorrow, maybe we’ll see each other there!

Cheers,

Micca
