virtual run with beautiful peeps

been raining since monday…no longer the sappy, shy, slothful pouring, but the true raging character of monsoon rain. it’s already august and it’s the first real rain of the year. cloud seeding is being carried out by the government agencies and other private groups but it is not helping that much as the water level in major dams in luzon, irrigating crop fields and supplying water to residences, are already on its critical level. infact, even with this rain for three consecutive days, it didn’t raise the water level to more than 100mm. 350mm less than what is a normal level. towns all over northern & central luzon are in serious threat of having a regionwide dry spell. and to say that i hate it when it rains is soo selfish of me.

so i digress.

there are no longer borders & constraints to anyone who wants to get connected and share his passion to another person anywhere in the world. as tomorrow’s 3rd VR kicks-off, runners know only two differences, time & temperature (weather), all else simply fade to oblivion. and even these two differences equate to insignificant factors as they all run the distance bearing in mind that somewhere on the other side of the planet fellow runaholics are doing exactly what they are into. soaked in sweat, these VRunners would all say, hello world! we are celebrating our lives the best way we know how – running together!

tomorrow here’s the drill:

DATE: 09.08.07, thursday (manila time)
TIME: 4:30 A.M. (manila time)
DISTANCE: 10 km/ 6 miles (or whatever you wish)

  1. E-Rod – Newport Beach, USA
  2. HitMe – Quezon City, Philippines
  3. Ben – Manila to Makati, Philippines
  4. Renz – Metro Manila, Philippines
  5. Marga – Paranaque, Philippines
  6. Steph – San Diego, USA
  7. Gretchen – Seattle, USA
  8. Jaymie – Alabang, Philippines
  9. banggigay – Makati, Philippines

so how about this?

…i hope it rains but please have a break in the morning. we runners wanna run, not on a treadmill (to begin with, i don’t have this equipment, i wish though i have it!), but on a real jog path of a park or to a village’s paved road or on an oval (like the colonel :p). until vrunners have covered the distance or should i say satisfied the need for a fix at the break of dawn, it will only be then pouring will be welcomed again. and please… fill up the cup with enough precipitate…break the threat of the dry spell.

fair enough eh?


* geeez! need to be in bed now. pffft!
