|Pose before the run. hehehe!|
Okay, to start with this new journey of my life as father and as a runner my first journal would be this recently concluded FILA and Athletes in Action's School Run for School Rooms which was participated by different schools, agencies, and individuals. I think the runners went overa thousand, it was like a colony of ants.
I did share before that one of the blessings that I've received was the new set of running shoes and that's what I used. I'm very thankful for the generosity of FILA. Though I get a hard time scouting for the best shoes for my feet. My feet's shapes is quite extraordinary so I really need shoes that will not only fit but will give comfort to it while having a run.

I wore my singlet, which looks good on me and it fits okay. I also wore some light material shorts but I know it's not a specific shorts for running but it will suffice. Maybe in coming days and when I have extra budget I'll buy running gears but for now I will just use what ever materials that I have. Since my hair is quite long now I did wear a head dress to keep my hair in tact and also let the sweat sip in to that material.

I'm running again and it feels great excreting those sweats but of course I don't want to overdo it so the run was 70% run and 30% brisk walk. I need to condition myself again for a full 5K run.
The whole stretch of the run covers different terrain that made my running quite interesting, the cemented road and the rough and water terrain which is good because it allows me to switch phasing in order to match with the situation I'm running on to. One thing that is not good about the run is that it only got two hydration station, one in the middle of the stretch and the other at the finish line. I have learned that from previous runs that we need to hydrate our body in order not to have any health problem and not put ourselves into a big problem.
|Finish Line, the time indicates 52minutes and 30 seconds|
which is the time of the whole category runs. I finish the run
first then took the shot.
