milkshake run

yaaay! my alterego H is back from her jetsetting holiday in the west. we were having coffee last friday at SB-powerplant when she handed me a B&N bag. and woot!woot! a neruda’s collection of poetry! i luv it to bits! :-)


we then drove to metrowalk to meet our other friends there. you know when night fades rather quick when you are having a great time with a great company. arrrg! i had to call it a night, cos i need to recharge for my early morning 2k fun run of barbizon’s milkshake.

next morning, after a super quicky shower, rushed to the fort to meet other happy feet who are joining the run too. it’s indeed a good turn out of runners for a 1st fun run! kids, dads, mums, expecting mums and even very pregnant ones were there to support the advocacy of breastfeeding. representatives of unicef and who graced the event. they briefly discussed the many importance of breastfeeding after the run. there’s this lad too who came in front and proudly said he was breastfed and that he hardly had colds. bright lad indeed! too bad my mum wasn’t able to breastfeed all six of us cos she barely produced milk.

anyway, it’s true to its name fun run, cos we all had a great time! running/brisk walking 2k at the fort in an early morning sunshine (run started a bit after 8am), chatting with fellow runners, seeing a number of families joining the run, and lots of freebies (loot bag of lingerie, baby stuff & snacks from gourdos). i queued to all the freebie booths, i’m very pinoy at that! hahaha! i wonder though why peeps saw only smith & roselle in qtv? we missed that tv exposure eh? hahaha!

great time didn’t end there, we hit to KK and had our another fix – doughnuts! :-)

look! for a 2k run, we lost say 120calories, then we had chips, sandwiches, solas and doughnuts (can’t even compute how many calories we gained) right after the run. me thinks now, most runners don’t run to really lose weight, they run to have fun. Right joms? ben? smith? missy? roselle? mon? hahahaha!

oh and btw, finally! jaymie a.k.a the bull runner & i finally met! in person, one could have mistaken her to still be single! she looks young and very slender. i wish to be just like that when i reach thirty something :-) props to you btw for that one nice and naughty shirt design of milkshake! didn’t know you have it in you, i mean the naughtiness! hahahaha!

good thing papa mon was persistent that i join the milkshake run or i missed these altogether. woohoo!

    Naughty? Me? I’m rather naive and innocent! :)

    Thanks for the compliment! I’m pretty sure you’ll be fit until your past your 30’s! Wait…how old are you anyway?

    Hey, I’m so glad we finally met. I hope we get to chat more soon. As Mon said, magaling ka daw mag kwento eh. hahaha

    i love pablo neruda too. have you seen the film ‘il postino’? worth checking out, if you’re a fan of his work.
