I Ran For School Rooms - FBF & Category Challenge Post

going with a flasbackFriday post. going to talk about one of my earlier runs in 2012, Fila's 'Schools Run for School Rooms' fun run.

it was a running event sponsored by fila and organized by athletes in action's. it was held on a saturday, july 7, at the bonifacio global city. i signed up for the 10k run. it was the first run that i joined that year. didn't really intend to join runs back in the day because i find such runs superficial. people joining runs are more interested in other activities, and not the actual run itself, like taking pictures or collecting the singlets, race bibs, and all the other stuff and freebies. anyway, what made me sign up for this run was because the proceeds of the race were used to construct classrooms in the schools in iligan, cagayan, and the other schools destroyed during typhoon sendong in 2011. i think it was a noble cause, still is, hence this event got money and support from me. as for the run itself, i didn't do any special prep work for this one. i ran my normal routes that time. come race day, i ran my normal pace and i think i didn't break my personal record. come to think of it, i can't remember what my personal record was that year. lol!

I'm not much of a runner, but collecting the singlets and photos and stuff does sound like fun. Good memories!

Yeah,Ii actually thought about doing the same but it just doesn't appeal to me as much as the actual experience of the run.

Sounds exciting. My son wanted to do the three day Breast cancer walk but they change each person who enters it $200. I sure hope, that is going to breast cancer research.
