busy me :)

Was so busy the past few weeks that i have no time to check my emails and blog account. Fortunately i can fb using my old nokia phone so i was able to check some updates. :) Well, what happened during my long busy week was this:

First, my bestfriend asked me if I can fill in for a friend in their entourage. Apparently, our h.s. friend backed out for some reasons, she can't make it on the wedding (but she did, she was there) So, there i was, to save the day. We did the necessary adjustments, fitted a gown, picked a style then after a week got my own gown for my bestfriend's wedding. The wedding happened last July 24 at 10:00 in the morning. Wedding in the morning is no joke for me. I had to fix my own hair, do my own makeup and eat very early just to make it on time. The wedding went out fine. It was a nice one. I saw my bf cry because of so much joy bursting out from her heart. :) I am just happy for her :)

After the wedding, we went to another event. It's my nephew's birthday. Good thing that both events happened to be in cavite. or else i will not be able to go to the bday. ofcourse, wedding is much more important :)

July 25. I had 3 events during that day.

First, my 5k run at the Fort. It was a nice run, cool and cloudy skies were very accomodating for my early morning run. I finished in 44 minutes. :) I wish to improve more on my next run. :)

After my run, I went to another event which is in Shaw Blvd. I was chosen to be a godparent to my friend's first born son. :) was so glad to be there too.

Then last, my sister's bday :) celebrated her bday at my parents house :) we had 2 cakes, ice creams and kare kare for dinner YUMMMM :)

haaaay. all of these happened in just 2 days. Now I feel so grumpy and all. haha

to work or not to.....work....

I got a surprise job offer last night. The position needs to be filled as urgent as possible, and so me and bridson discussed about it overnight if i can go back to work... We even asked MIL to look after bongbong incase I get the job, she said yes, but I have thoughts that she might not be able to attend to my son's needs and may not cope with the hyperness of my super energetic son. I have a lot of things going thru my mind that night. My heart stops whenever I think of leaving my son the wholeday and not knowing if he is okay... oh well. too much thinking.
Come next morning, I received and exchanged a couple of sms from the person offering the job, turned out to be a "false alarm" hehe... for some confidential reasons, I cannot take the job. I don't know how to express it but, I think it felt good, I know it's strange, but maybe it's bec. I don't want to work yet... haaay... this blog entry is sooo emo. ;(

And the results for 5k are in! :) yey!

I first searched my name from the 50 - 55 min mark, but my name wasn't there... I thought maybe I finished quite a bit slower than i thought.
Then Bridson said he'd help me look for my name... he's also excited to see the results... hmmmm suppotive ehhh? haha! so there he started at the 45 min mark I think, he searched and searched... and tadahhh! my name appeared! yehey!

race bib number: 547711
name: ABIGAEL CASTRONUEVO
age: 26
gender: F
time: 49:15
pace: 9:51
place: 4355/9840

I'm so happy that my official time is 49:15 :) I wish that on my next run I would be able to beat my personal record.

Thank you very much MILO! I know there were too many of us who ran in the 5k and 3k category, but still you were able to post the results 4 days after the race.

If you want to see the rest of the results pls check it here:

Growing up with MILO :)

And so I registered for my 2nd running event this time with MILO.
It is the 34th Milo Marathon and the advocacy of this year's race is to give a child a pair of running shoes :) isn't that sweet?

Again, I registered myself in the 5k run, prepared myself that it's going to be a jampacked marathon unlike any other running event in the country. And as expected, by 5am traffic was really bad when i reached MIA road. Twas like a bumper to bumber ride from the tip of roxas blvd going to KM. 0 where the race will begin.

I got there by almost 6am. there were almost 21,000 runners for the 5k alone! It was a sea of green. I cannot move unless the person infront of me moved a bit.


this is how it looked like... we were too many. but still the fun in the air was too much that we didn't even bother if we bump into each other while going towards that starting line.

I finished the 5k within 55 minutes. a bit slower than my first run, but still happy. :) Being part of the event is really something for me. It is an achievement to finish the race within the cutoff time. I am proud of myself and I am mostly proud of the people who took the 10k, 21k and th 42k. Kudos to you all. :)

Have I got a long way to run....

After so many months of being idle...I am now back and ready to blog anything and everything!

And now, I have a new hobby! yes! yey yey yey! aside from doing nothing all day long and taking care of my only son 24/7... I am now involved in running! YES! really, running! haha! I just wanted to shed off some fats and also enjoy everything while having this kind of activity. I must say that am a newbie when it comes to running, because the only thing that I do best is to dance... and that's it. For me dancing is my sport. ;) I play volleyball, basketball, badminton and I also swim but I haven't achieved anything with those. and NOW that running is the new IN thing around town, I've decided to why not give it a shot... SOOOO... I registered in a few running events here in the city.

My first running event is with the ACE eco-friendly run. a 5k is a good way to start my running. I finished in 49 minutes. :) pretty cool for a beginner like me. ;)
That's me in the middle, my friend chelle and the Kenyan runner who finished first on the 10k male.

I got a lootbag from ACE hardware, a magazine, sports bottle and lot more tiny things haha! well I had a great time running, except for the end part of it. When we reached the finish line, the place was so crowded, there was only one person to get our tag at the finish line. and he has no spindle hole. ohwell... how would we get our accurate race result with in that kind of way... well anyway enough of that ending part, what matters here is I enjoyed my run and I finished it in 49 minutes :)
