Slide and slide my little one

My son loves to go the park, have fun and play. His favorite is the slide. Whenever we go to a park, playground or indoor play area, he would choose the slide. He loves to climb even the steepest stairs just to have the feel of sliding down.

Run Baby, Run

Look who's been bitten by the running bug... My son recently joined the Mommy Milkshake Fun run Year 5. This is his second time to join, but his first time run by himself. We also joined last year's event but I carried just to finish. hehe.

I am so proud of my 3 yr old kiddo, he finished his first 3k in 37 minutes and 30 seconds! :)

My Stormy Milo Marathon Experience

I remember myself running last year's Milo Marathon in the 5k category, I was struggling, waiting for every water station to appear in front of me. My time back then was around 49 minutes for a 5K. It was very hot (well... for me), there were too many people. The Grandstand was so crowded... I still remember seeing Karylle pop in front of me out of nowhere then the people went giddy and took photos of her. Well, that was last year. This year's event's far too different from any of my previous races. This one is amazing! A lot of firsts happened in this race.

It was my first time to run in a stormy day. I finished my 21k run in 2:37, and I did it while getting drizzled by heavy rainfall and gusty winds. There where also puddles and flood along the way which made the course look like a trail run :D

It was my first time to pee while on a race, good thing there was a portalet near luneta. lol! During a normal race, when it is sunny and extremely hot, I never get to use the portalets... But this time, the weather was too cold for me, and I am all soaked up. I was hesitant to unload at first, there was me thinking that the portalet might be dirty or smelly. (i get tummy sick when I smell something not good) I was also worried about my time. 1 unnecessary stop will make me lose my pace to make for the cutoff time (w/c i didn't beat) but what the heck, I might suffer if don't unload. :p So there, I lost precious minutes that's too important for me. hehe. (emo)

After that funny part, I decided to focus on my run and try to recover my precious pacing. I was able to beat my previous records in the 5k 10k and 16k during the course, but then, when I reached the 17th km marker, I felt a sudden pain on my butt then went down to my thighs... I was so worried that it might be cramps, I don't want to stop. I want to continue my run. So, I tried to run what could be the longest 5k of my life. I remember myself trying to push my feet to step a li'l more quick s I may be able to reach the finish line before the cut off time. I tried my best,I did a few stops to recover quick. I saw my watch hit the 2:30 cutoff time when I was nearing the Esplanade. My hopes and dreams just fade...But I did not give up. I am already there. I braved the storm. I braved the wind... I will finish my race strong and with a smile no matter what my time is. I was hoping to see any familiar face as I hit the finish line but there was none. I can only remember spongebob runner was one of those who finish along with me. My time was 2:37. I was just 7 minutes behind. I am not sad about it... I will reach this cutoff time sooner or later. There's the term we call practice and perseverance. I will have them both, so that next time, I can beat that 2:30 with a proud heart. :)

My passion for running :)
This is me, on the turn around point of AKTV's 21km race... still smiling and happy :)

it's been a while...

Since my internet connection has been acting up lately, i tend to be lazy in updating my blog, multiply and fb as well... but of course, i will never forget to visit and make some entries :)

Me first:

I've done a number of 21km runs and I hope to increase it gradually. My next race would be Milo Marathon on the 31st of July, and I am aiming to finish it before the cut off time which is 2:30. good luck to me and to all other runners :)

The Husband:

He has been quite nice in providing me everything that I need with regards to running, he is not that supportive before, but I think he saw how happy I am when I go and run... Thank you for realizing that running gives me happy hormones. :)

The kid:

He is now 3 yrs and 7 months old... but still a baby for me. :) was supposed to enroll him in a daycare but decided not to do so, I think it is a bit early for him, we'll teach him how to write a few then maybe we can send him mid year... hoping also for his communication skill to improve. :)

I hope to improve my running not my walking ;)

Hop back to Outback

My son is a loyal guest :) he loves everything in OUTBACK.

and... Here's a pic of our family, taken last vday :)

Great Food, Great Service! Excellent Place! What more can you ask for?

The food attendants are super friendly, the managers are accommodating and pretty ;)

Do not worry bout the price in their menu... Food serving will fill your tummy very well and fits the budget... not to mention it's very tasty too!

When you dine there with a kid, ask for information about having a joey card and try to get one... It is very rewarding because you get to have free meal for your kid every time you dine. Isn't that just nice? ;)

RUN in Rain

It was raining cats and dogs since yesterday, so i really prepared myself for tonight's run. I packed everything that i needed before heading out for my wednesday night anr session. As expected, it rained ver very hard... Our warm up run turned out to be a shower run. I wished there was an eye wiper like the ones that windshields have. I can barely see where I was going. I swamped my foot on watery puddles that soaked my running shoes very well. We still managed to run 4kms. after a nice warmup. :) I am thankful that I have a great body and that I can stand the heavy rain pour running with all smiles.:)
