It was a wonderful Sunday, Eugene and I woke up as early as 2:30am to prepare for the Robinsons Supermarket 10th Fit and Fun Wellness Buddy Run. I was amazed to see so many people of all ages, and families out walking, running and just having fun at the Parade Grounds of Camp Aguinaldo in Quezon City. It was our second time to join a 5k run. The first one was last year held at BGC, Taguig. Since it was my first time last year, I was doubting if I can be able to finish the 5k run. Thankful that my husband was very supportive of me. Running, especially when done with a friend or loved one, is truly a fun and exciting way to achieve a fitness goal.
It was my husband who always encourage me to have a regular exercise. He is more health conscious than me and I'm thankful for that. We do jogging/walking at least 3-4 times a month. Sometimes, I feel like I don't need to do such activities because I'm thin already. But when I started to do jogging and do 2 sets of 4-minute work out that I learned from Coaches Jim and Toni Saret everyday-every morning, I feel more energetic. Perhaps the reason why this year 10th Fit and Fun Wellness Buddy Run is more easy for me than the first run.
Robinsons Supermarket’s wellness campaign continuously encourage more people to choose and live healthier lifestyles, the Fit & Fun Wellness Buddy Run gave everyone an opportunity to partner with friends and family, and run together towards the finish line.
Hosted by volleyball superstar and TV personality, Gretchen Ho, and Robi Domingo, the event also featured exciting booths with lots of freebies from Nestle Philippines, Johnson & Johnson, Fonterra, Unilab and Wyeth Nutrition, Unilever, International Pharmaceuticals Incorporated (IPI), Procter & Gamble, Abbott Nutrition, Getz Bros, Ecossential, Del Monte, Foodsphere Inc., and Philusa.
Coaches Jim and Toni Saret prepped-up the runners with a short work-out and invited them to register on-site for the Fit Filipino 1 Million Pounds National Weight Loss Challenge, the biggest on-ground and online wellness program in the country which aims to encourage everyone to pledge and lose weight.
The Fun Run is just one of the programs this July. Robinsons Supermarket is also giving away Healthy You snack platters for a minimum purchase of Php 3,000 inclusive of Php 500 worth of participating items of the Wellness Festival.
