Upcoming Race: Hello Kitty Run Manila 2017

Upcoming Race: Hello Kitty Run Manila 2017

So after my Run Ignacio 2017 last July, I think I am ready for yet another fun-filled race! This time, I am ready to upgrade to 5k!

Mommy, Daddy, and I have already registered for the Hello Kitty Run Manila 2017 which will be happening this October 21, 2017 at SM by the Bay, SM MOA Complex.

I’m a registered runner!!! Weeeee!!!

Mommy is fond of Hello Kitty, so it was not a surprise that she brought up the idea to Daddy for us to join this run. And Daddy? Does he love Hello Kitty too? Well, let’s just say he loves to run hehehe. 🙂

As part of our training, we even had a morning run along the quaint and peaceful riverbanks of the Marikina River last Saturday, August 5, 2017. We tested whether I can already do 5k. Unfortunately, we woke up quite a bit late that morning. The sun was already a bit high in the sky, thus we decided to cut short our training run to just 3k for now.

The following Saturday, August 12, 2017, was supposedly my first time to climb mountains at Mt. Balagbag with Mommy and Daddy. Alas, I was sleeping like a baby (which I was) all the way until 6 a.m., so my parents decided to just do a training run instead. We went to UP to run at the Academic Oval. This time, we aimed for a 5k!

And look who we saw in UP? It’s Tito Rhon Corpuz! He is Daddy’s workmate, and also a coach of PAR (Pinoy Aspiring Runners). They currently had a Saturday morning workout session when we saw him!
And it was nice running into veteran runners in today’s run, especially Master Victor Ting himself! We were even invited to his birthday run on September 17! Let’s see if we could make it there!

And I did my first 5k!!! Here’s Daddy’s Strava recording! As the harkors say, “It didn’t happen if it ain’t in Strava!” 😀

There’s still a few more weeks to go before this much-awaited event. I wonder where Daddy and Mommy will bring me for another training run? 🙂
