Last Saturday I ran 3K for a cause. We joined the K for K (Kilometer for Kerygma) headed by Bro. Bo Sanchez. The proceeds will be given to the foundations he built for our less fortunate brothers and sisters.
As early as 5:15am, me and Andrew arrived in SM Mall of Asia grounds and waited for Zeny and Pache to arrive. At around 5.30am, we are all set to warm up and run for the first time.
To start the event, Bro. Michael Angelo Lobrin welcomed all the participants with his ever lively aura that even his voice itself will energize you. We started with a warm up hosted by Fitness First.
After the warm up, the facilitators already called the 5K runners to get ready and proceed to the starting line. The 3K runners will run 5 minutes after the 5K runners starts followed by the 1K runner who will start 5 minutes after the 3K runners. The 100m dash of the kids will start after all the 5K-3K-1K runners finishes the run.
The marathon was no pressure since it is not time limited and it is considered as “fun run”. There were water stations along the route.
I was next to Andrew in the finish line. The timer says 29 minutes. After 5 minutes, Zeny and Pache arrived. While waiting for them, I already lined up in the photobooth sponsored by iFlick.ph. As Bro. Michael Angelo said, “When 2 or 3 are gathered, there is picture taking!“. That’s always true for us!
It was then I realized how flushed I was after the run. I always turns red whenever I play sports, any kind! Since I am a little bit tanned by the summer outings I’ve been to this year, my red face turned out as if my whole face was sun burnt.
After hours of heart pumping activities, we left the event with satisfied hearts both physically and emotionally. We’ll definitely do this again!
