Running with a buddy is fun and motivational in a way that you can challenge yourself to run an extra mile, every time your buddy beats you. I usually run in the morning with hubby in our neighborhood. However, due to conflicting work schedules, we rarely have time to get back on track together.
Getting back on running without a companion makes it difficult for me to complete the run. Luckily, when Robinsons Supermarket invited me to join the 10th Fit and Fun Wellness Buddy Run, a friend was available to keep me company. She’s Icee, a former colleague from a publishing company.
We met at Camp Aguinaldo, but due to the influx of runners/participants, we finally met before we passed by the finish line. It’s a requirement that you have to be with your running buddy when you reached the finish line.
As we were about to go back at the grandstand, I noticed these two cute little dogs with their sweet masters. They’re the daughters of Mr. and Mrs. Ruel and Jinkee Umali.
Another lucky moment during the run, being with Matteo Guidicelli! (Sorry, dear hubby 🙂 I also spotted Ms. Robina Gokongwei, but I was not able to capture a picture with her running.
During the event, runners/participants enjoyed some foodies and products from sponsors like Nestle Philippines, Johnson & Johnson, Fonterra, Unilab and Wyeth Nutrition, Unilever, International Pharmaceuticals Inc., Procter & Gamble, Abott Nutrition, Getz Bros, Ecossential, Del Monte, Foodsphere, Inc and Philusa.
Coach Jim and Toni Saret prepared the runners with a short work-out and invited them to register on site for the Fit Filipino 1 Million Pounds National Weight Loss Challenge, the biggest on-ground and online wellness program in the country which aims to encourage everyone to pledge and lose weight.
The program was hosted by Gretchen Ho and Robi Domingo was also around. They exchange more hugot moments which made the moment more lighter and fun. Members of Philippine Volcanoes were also present.
Of course, Coach Toni Saret also lead the short workout after the run.
The Fit & Fun Buddy Run was one of Robinsons Supermarket programs this month of July that aims to encourage consumers to choose and live healthier lifestyles.
