PTAA Charity Run

I never was so sure joining this marathon.

Not until I was pressured, when I visited the store of Mizuno at Trinoma. Heck, the saleslady said that registration is still open and the forms will be picked up anytime that afternoon last Saturday (June 13). Medyo nataranta naman ako. So there I was, I fill out the form and ask Dennis to treat me..hehe ganun yun. And I texted my dear friend, Cel , that I just registered. I just decided to join, coz I think I got to burn the carbs that I have that Saturday (as in).

This was my first race at U.P. I was with Dennis all the way there. In there, I met Cel, Jenny & Ryan. My other running mates were absent that time...We run for the 5K and the run started at 6 A.M. I made a difference this time. I decided to have less walk unlike last week and try to apply what was taught to me (to breath with my nose and exhale with my mouth....) And medyo effective coz I manage to jog lang when I'm tired. Right after the race, we get to meet again in the venue. We have some pictorials and Dennis was our photographer. And surprisingly, during our pictorials..Cel's name was announced and she just won an accommodation gift certificate in Boracay (wow talaga sa swerte..). Next run will be on June 28. We have a rest this coming weekend. ..

60th Birthday Celebration

Papa and Tito Ronnie

Just before leaving...

Beautiful ladies..

My dear Father-in-law just turned 60 last June 9. We celebrated his 60th birthday at Tramway Garden Buffet at Timog. Together with other relatives, we have our lunch buffet last Saturday (June 13). There were no kids actually, except for Caitlyn, who enjoys going out the resto while we all enjoy our hearty lunch.

Hectic Weekend

I love being busy, of course with the company of friends and family...Last weekend has been a busy one. It started last friday night (06.5.09), where my former UCPB officemate/dear friend, Susan, celebrated her bongacious birthday bash at Coffee Nook @ El Pueblo. It has been a reunion for my former officemates. It has always been fun, good food and lots of drinks..but I had ice tea for this night..hehe! not really in the mood to drink.
Then last Saturday (06.6.09) was Caitlyn's 1st birthday. I thought the celebration will be on the afternoon, around 12 noon pala. The party was held at McDonald's Marcos Highway. The party was attended by family, relatives, and friends of my SIL. And as usual, I can't avoid the food there, hey...favorite ko dun..hehe! Dennis was the official photographer and while Byron, my BIL, took the videos. Its a good thing my hubby got the new videocam. After the program and hearty meal, Birdie and Hamburgular take the stage. The kids really adore them and I even take the opportunity to have a pictorial with them..hehe! antagal nila magpakuha parang ayaw..
The party ended at around past 2 P.M. In the evening, Dennis and I drove all the way to Lagro where will stay for the night coz it will be another day for 2nd marathon..

TGIS! 06.7.09...Its 4 am when I finally get out of bed.. actually ako huling bumangon..lahat gising na and almost done. Dennis is our official driver/photographer for the marathon, since he's not really into it.. We left our house at 4:30 am. Imagine how fast I have to move to fix myself.. no make ups..hehe! Our first stop is to pick up my friend, Cel, who's also joining..Next stop, to pick up, Nikki, friend of my cousin na friend ko na din...hehe! Then off we went to the Fort. My brother, Sam, is getting too worried coz it was already past 5 am and we are still in Commonwealth..He joined the 15K run, which will start at 5:30 kaming lahat by 6am pa. We reached the location at exactly 5:30am. Late na bro ko, while us, even have warm up..onti lang. So ayun, we run at 6am..kakapagod pero it was still fun for me..same feeling of excitement I felt. After the marathon, we register again for another one to be held at U.P. (GIG run) on June 28. Addicting talaga. And then we had breakfast sa walang kasawa-sawang McDonald's...ulet..McDonald's weekend pala eto..mali ang title ng topic ko..
