Timex Run 2009!

November 15, 2009
"Time is Running..."

We're ready to run alongside Papa P and other celebrities!My Buddies -Dudeth, Mace, Gel, Gi- and I registered at the 5km Category. Assembly time is 5:20AM. Hope we could win Timex watches or Nike items during the raffle draw! There are 5,000 people, in all ages, who will participate in this event... Ready, Set, GO!

RACE DAY. At 5am, we're all set. We left our bags at the baggage counter, put our race chips and race bibs on and began stretching.
...Gun Shot for 5km starts at exactly 5:50AM, ready to go!

We didn't win any of the raffle prizes but we did have a consolation prize in seeing Piolo and Coach Rio up close. Some of the celebrities we've encountered were: Ricky Davao, Eric Fructuoso, Maricar Reyes (I wasn't able to see her), Maricel Laxa (whose mum is the oldest participant at age 86), Jan Marini and husband Gerard Pizzaras and Ms Tessa Prieto (whose passion isn't just fashion but also running! she joined the 21km category).

An airconditioned tent that could accommodate a hundred or more people (an exclusive event for registered runners only) was set up for the LIVE telecast of Paquiao-Cotto Firepower Fight which costs at only Php500 per person. This includes buffet breakfast and lunch.

After the run, we claimed our finisher's lootbags and free items from Men's/Women's Health Magazine / Nescafe and Sports Drinks. We also posed for PhotoVendo and got our free copy!
We had a less exhausting run and a better finish time compared to our 1st two Runs in Mizuno 10km and Draw the Line Race 5km. We're planning to run again at Del Monte's Dare to be Fit n' Right Fun Run on November 22 @ SM Mall of Asia. You may also check this link for complete details.

See you there!
