Our First Running Race

Sunday, February 20, 2011, 4:30 a.m. Sweet Pea and I woke up early to join hundreds of participants for TwoForTaft, a benefit fun run for the victims of last year's Taft salubong blast.

@gillboard, dehins bro. Never was, never will. Never ever. mga friends ko lang yang mga yan.

@axl, thanks bro, medyo matagal tagal ko narin to pinangarap, buti nagkaroon ng opportunity.

@khanto, trial version, kaya 3k muna. Baka kasi mabigla hehe.

@unni, tara takbo tayo minsa, hehe yung marker ang magsasabi kung nagshortcut ka o hindi hehhee pag nalaman nila nagshortcut ka, hindi ka nila bibigyan ng free tubig. hehe

@pusang kalye, tara takbo tayo. Sarap pala. Narealize ko lang na ang hirap magdala ng camera habang tumatakbo. Hehe, lahat nakatingin, na para bang weird ka. ^_^
