Inviting My Friends to Run

The singlets, race bibs, timing chip, and instruction manual of my
classmates. This is all that's left after I've distributed the rest.
Face. You have to put up a "face" when it is time to get grades. The face must neither be happy nor sad. It must be somewhere in between :/ <--- like this perhaps.

When I got my grades at the Dean's office, slowly, subject by subject, I peaked into my grade sheet with a "face" on.

1. The Dean gave me a passing grade...
2. Retired Justice of the Court of Appeals passed me... so far so good.
3. Justice of Sandigan Bayan passed me...
4. MTC Judge passed...
5. The Associate Dean passed me...
6. Attorney Doctor President of the largest medical association in the Philippines passed me...
7. Senior Partner of Law Firm... passed me!

 It's the first time I'll be joining
the Milo Marathon
 The 5k, of course, is my favorite. 
I passed all subjects I took in this semester. I wasn't expecting it. I've considered my self "dead" halfway the semester as my midterm grades were hanging by a thread. It really is a blessing.

I ask my self what's the difference between this sem and those I've taken in the past; I had only one thing in mind -- Running.

Running is a diversion from all the stress of school. It gets me to wake up early. It develops speed, endurance, time management, and a unique positive perspective -- all are helpful in work and life. It just keeps the energy flowing. God really meant the body to be moving.

And just like that, I got my friends sold.  I got a good number of them to join the 35th Milo Marathon with me. Inviting them to a race is the best way I can introduce them to the joy of running. I was so excited for them I even volunteered to register them as soon as possible. We will all be running the race favorite 5K category. I hope running makes a positive effects on my friends and classmates' work and life as it did to me. When I was still starting to advocate for running, I told myself that if I could just get one person to discover the benefits of running, I'm already happy.

See you at MOA grounds on 11th of December good friends :)
