10k here I come!

Wednesday, October 28, 2009

Yeah! Crazy me will be running 10k on November 8 at the Philippine International Marathon. Didn't know what made me decide for it but hubby told me he'll run with me if I go for 10k so here I am! I would just be needing tons and tons of luck!

Got this from the Lopez site:

RUN for a worthy cause on Nov. 8 and get a glimpse of the state of the Pasig River in the Philippine International Marathon 2009: A Run for the Pasig River at the Quirino Grandstand.

The activity, organized by Kapit Bisig Para sa Ilog Pasig (KBPIP), will allow runners to get close to the river via a nontraditional route that will cross nine of the 13 bridges of the waterway; portions of the race will be run alongside the river itself.

A unique feature of this race is the 42K full marathon which can also be run by a relay team of 20 and 40 people per team. The relay will run the full length of the marathon route divided by 20 points. Each point will be assigned a prominent landmark or bridge along the route.

There are short distance categories of 3k-5k-10k. The age limit is 6 years old and above. The full marathon and its sub categories will be under the technical supervision of Race Director Rudy Biscocho and his team. Water stations will be situated every 2km from starting line to finish line.

Participation fee is P250. Pinoy Ultra Runners will conduct free running clinics for first-time runners.Registration forms are available online for marathon and relay or register at the following outlets: KBPIP office at 3/F ELJ Building, Mother Ignacia QC, ABS-CBN Foundation Inc. Head office, IZOD boutiques, Vanheusen Boutiques, Gold’s Gym, ROX Running Store, Second Wind, Race Inc. For more info, call

It was a very busy weekend for me and my family. We attended the baptism of my cousin's daughter last Saturday in Nueva Ecija. Woke up my little boy at 6am and gave him his first milk for the day. Since we were running late, we decided to have our breakfast in the car. Jared didn't want to eat anything at that time. He was so hard to feed and just ate very little for breakfast.

We arrived a few minutes late but we were actually just on time as the ceremony was just starting. I participated in the ceremony as I was a substitute for my cousin who was one of the sponsors but wasn't able to attend. Reception followed at their residence.

The little one didn't eat anything at the reception so we had to bring him to the nearest restaurant where there is soup. Yes, he cannot eat without soup. And after his lunch, he told us he wanted to ride the "horse" - the carousel and we let him accompanied by his papi (dad).

The following day, we went to Laguna to attend Cedie's birthday celebration at a hot spring resort in Pansol. This time Jared had his milk and breakfast before we got into the car so travelling was a breeze.

Once we got to the resort and the little one saw the pool, he immediately said that he would like to swim because he wants to use his baby float. He really loves water. I think he was a fish on his past life haha!

Oh and he had his first lollipop ( a light-up lollipop) that day. His Ninang Pauline gave it to him. Good thing he didn't finish off the whole lolly. It was too much sugar for him. He just ate it like an ice cream by licking it.

P.S. Thanks to ninang Pauline for the gift! Jared loves it!

Good job!

Go back to start

Joined the 1st Quezon City International Marathon yesterday. Hubby, SIL, and I ran the 5k category while my friend Cel ran her first 10k (way to go girl!). We left home at 4:15am but there was already slow traffic because of the rerouting. Good thing we found a good parking slot immediately.

The 5k route was so refreshing.. with the wide roads dedicated only for the runners, no hills and and almost straight path except for the one around the Quezon Memorial Circle. There were enough water and 100plus stations to keep runners hydrated. On the first water station, I decided to take a bottle of the 100plus drink so that I won't have to stop to another station again when I get thirsty but it turned out to be a wrong decision. Even if I have the drink with me, it added burden as I got an additional load to carry. I should have just dropped it somewhere but for some reason I didn't! my bad!

Everything was nice on this race except for my performance. I clocked in at 47 mins (unofficial) which was the same as my very first 5k! arghhh! Now I don’t know if I will run 10k on the next race or just stick to 5k till next year. Sigh..

Tuesday, October 13, 2009

Jared is now 29 months old. I'm not sure if I'll continue these monthly updates for him. Blame it on my laziness, forgetfulness and I think there aren't many new things to update every month. So I'll just do a brief one here..

Weight - 14.7 kilos
Height - 96 cm

... His naptime has shorten these days from 3 hours to just an hour and a half
... He loves yoghurt so much! flavored ones..
... Loves eating ripe mangoes - his fave fruit
... He can now read the numbers 11-20 but he reads 15 as "five-teen" and 20 as "two-teen" hehe!
... Can walk down the stairs still holding on to the side railings with both hands
... When someone asks his name, he always says his full name
