IE8 Run

I participated in the IE8 Run yesterday, organized by Microsoft Philippines for the benefit of the UNICEF Child Protection Program, despite traces of coughing for the past couple of days. It was well attended by more than 1300++ runners. Despite the rain just hours prior, the whole race was blessed with a nice weather, with a few occassions of neglible drizzling. Runners had a choice of running in either 8, 4 or 2-mile routes.

My official time for the 4-mile run is 59:53 which maybe a bad record but I'm not ashamed of it. First, it's been years since I've done something like this and I did no warm-up to prepare for the run. Throughout the almost an hour of what actually is more of brisk-walking together with officemates Ralph and Unyx, we were just telling stories and not really competing. In fact, we're just having fun out of the event!

No matter your place after finishing the run, what's more important is that you did it for a great cause. As I've been telling others, you are still a big winner.
