Signed up for this one on a whim and got Jen G to run as well! 5ks are perfect for running in groups because it’s a manageable distance for most people and there’s not as much pressure 👌
Signing up for the Viper Challenge was what pushed me into going to gym consistently. I didn’t actually know what I signed up for but Sammie S was very convincing (it didn’t take much convincing because I was interested anyway) and I was all like “LEGGO”. And then I saw the YouTube videos…
I was pretty excited for this race. Not only was it one of the largest ones in the Philippines (~3000 participants!!) but the highlight was getting to run on the Skyway! Below is my race kit but I decided to ditch the sun sleeves last minute cause Heat N was starting at 440am! I highly doubted Mr Sun was gonna be there to annoy me. (Forgot to include my Jaybirds Bluebuds X but they were with me at the race!)
Today, I finished the first 10k run of my life! It was quite thrilling and very very tiring. I’m surprised I’m still awake right now!
I joined the Xavier Stallion Run at the boys school next to my alma mater because it’s just the familiar place next door.
I apologize for being absent for quite a long time! Stuff came up and my schedule is well, all scheduled now so not as much flexibility on my part.
In other news, I will admit that I didn’t watch the inauguration because I’m not sure how I would react. Probs saw most of the important bits on social media anyway.
Just wanna share a throwback photo of President Obama way before he became POTUS. It was my first time covering a newsworthy event and this is truly a lucky shot because I stood on someone’s chair when they tried to crowd Obama.
(It’s one of my most cherished shots if not the most cherished shot of my life)
We’ll miss you!
Cathy C’s college friends had planned a trip to Masungi Georeserve for a couple of months now and this past Saturday was the time to head out! Cathy and I decided to take one car and got to the parking lot of the georeserve 1.5 hours early! We were scared of the possible traffic but hey, the roads going there are surprisingly smooth because they’ve all been repaved. If you plug in “Masungi Georeserve” on Waze, it should direct you right to the parking lot entrance. BTW, it took us about 1.5 hours from Greenhills, San Juan all the way to the park.
Dining at Chino was a new kind of high for me. Nestled on the western edge of Hong Kong Island, the Mexican Japanese fusion restaurant found its place in the very residential and quickly gentrifying Kennedy Town (KTown whaattt). I discovered this place through Instagram and well, I just never looked back after that.
