The 11th Fit and Fun Wellness Buddy Run

This year was so special for me. I'm thankful that I was able to recover fast from a surgery just last March and that the doctor told me that I'm finally okey☺. Of course, it was never that easy and  I'm more health cautious now. I'm just grateful about a lot of things like waking up in the morning and you're okey, enjoying the day with my children, be able to do the things that I love to do like playing the guitar and reading devotional books, eating my favorite food (walang bawal 😆 ) and just recently I was able to join a fun run with hubby again at the 11th Fit & Fun Wellness Buddy Run.

It was our third time to join a buddy run. What was so special about this year? It was raining!☺ Unfortunately, when the run started around 6 in the morning it was raining really hard. But as they say "the show must go on". I salute all the runners who decided to run despite the heavy rain and was able to start and finished the 5k or 10k run. Eugene and I also decided to join those who run/walk and we just really had a great time. Running/walking in the rain specially with your loved one is really fun and exciting way to achieve a fitness goal.

Just like last year, the 11th Fit & Fun Wellness Buddy Run kicked off at the parade grounds of Camp Aguinaldo in Quezon City with different types of running pairs—parents and kids, siblings, lolos and their apos, loved ones, officemates, best friends, even neighbors—competing in the 5K and 10K races.

Presented by Robinsons Supermarket, the 11th Fit & Fun Wellness Buddy Run 5K race offered a top prize of a trip for 2 to Siargao with 3 days/2 nights hotel accommodation while 2nd and 3rd placers get Php8,000 worth of Robinsons gift certificates. For 10K race podium finishers, the top prize includes a trip for 2 to Hong Kong with 3 days/2 nights hotel accommodation while 2nd and 3rd placers get Php15,000 worth of Robinsons gift certificates.

“We are happy to provide an opportunity for people to start their wellness journey in a fun and one-of-a-kind event with their partners. After all, getting fit and choosing the healthier lifestyle is more worthwhile when shared with a buddy,” said Jody Gadia, Robinsons Supermarket general manager.

Celebrating fitness in a fun and exciting way, aside from exciting activity booths, participants also took home big grocery loot bags that have been the trademark of the Fit & Fun Wellness Buddy Run through the years.
