My first ever 5 Km run happened last August 29. This was one of the activities for the contest we joined at work. The run was held at the UP Diliman Academic Oval grounds. This was brought by the UP Engineering Radio Guild (UP ERG), in cooperation with SIBAT (SIBol ng Agham at Teknolohiya), through the Paanang Bundok project, through the event, they will help striving coffee farmers in Batangas to have a solar-powered water pumping system.
For the registration, our office paid P300 for 5 KM and 3 KM runners, whileP350 for 10 KM runners. The race started around 6 in the morning, the program started 30 minutes late from the scheduled start but it was okey since it’s my first time to do that and I don’t know if the itinerary of the program was strict.
My time? I finished it after 55 minutes of non-stop running-jogging-walking-jogging-running. I don’t know if my stats are good but I felt good and hungry after. 🙂
Check out some of the pics from the run:

We had our brunch at The Chocolate Kiss in Bahay ng Alumni. I’ve heard so much about the place but I was kind of disappointed after getting there. I was looking for the ‘ambiance’ that everybody was talking about. Maybe it was in the second floor coz we ate at the first floor….I dunno. For the food, it’s forgettable since I can’t remember it anymore. It was nice but not exceptional but the cake was amazing! I love my cake, the devil’s cake.
After lunch, Japox treated us, Malen and I at SM for a little relaxation. We watched Mamarazzi by Eugene Domingo. The movie was so funny, Eugene Domingo was very good, but I guess I have to post my own review for that on another post. 🙂
The day started early and ended early and I’ve done so many things. One thing is for sure…I’m going to break my stats for the5KM run. PROMISE!
